After our 7th anninversary, Randy and I moved in with my parents for 2 years. It was a mutually beneficial arrangement that lasted until we decided to move out of the state. A loaded sentence, I know, but in reality it just worked out that way. To make a complicated story simple, Randy and I decided to scout for possible re-location sites during a 2 week vacation, but got stranded in Florida when the car engine blew up. Twice. Now we were re-located by accident – Randy had to get a job while there – and it was a month before we could borrow a van and return home for our belongings. When we arrived after our month’s absence, Beau was furious at me for my abandonment. He refused to have anything to do with me . . . until Randy carried out our mattress. In seconds he was pasted to my side and never let me out of his sight. We took him with us to Florida. We didn’t have much of a choice.
At my parents’ request, once we were back in Florida, Randy and I would walk periodically to the nearest pay phone and call them collect just to let them know how things were going. That was in reality my parents’ code for ‘Is the dog alright?’ – the first thing out of their mouths after ‘hello’. Yes, I would say, the dog is more than alright . . .
. . . He was having the time of his life . . .
However, in spite of our reassurances, my parents didn’t believe us. They remained anxious. So we sent them a picture . . .
. . . which created a whole different mess. It seemed that Beau enjoyed wearing clothes.
However. . . more on that when I post The Dog Whisperer Vs. Beau – Part 3. Let’s just say the Dog Whisperer would not have been proud of the way we handled it.
