Holidays at home

Experiencing this contrasting world of ours first hand is an integral part of my daughters’ education. However, a lifestyle involving loads of travelling – and often travelling impulsively – can have its drawbacks. The major one, according to my children, is not being able to have a dog. A weekend here, two weeks there, fine. But it isn’t fair to take off for three months and leave the dog in a kennel. So far, I haven’t been persuaded otherwise.

But this year, we’ll have holidays at home. For once, we are spending the entire Christmas/New Years’ vacation at home, dog-sitting. Only a few days into it, we’re already acutely aware how difficult it will be to say goodbye to this beautiful little girl.

Happy Christmas, Blaze!

Do you have pets? If so, how do you cope when travelling?
