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!
