Day 55: Packed for his own vacation

(Excuse our very messy living room)

Bailey knows when he is going somewhere.  Ever since he was a puppy, we have used the same bag to pack his stuff when going on a trip.  He knows it is his bag.  He knows when he sees his bag being packed that it means he is going on a trip.  Heck, the first thing he does when he gets to the new place is usually unpack it on his own.

When we are packing our own suitcases, he gets really anxious until he see’s us pack his bag as well.  He thinks we are going somewhere without him, but then he settles down when he sees his stuff being put in his bag too.  Then instead, he just waits by the door while giving us the look that says “C’mon!  Lets go!”

We had to do things a little differently tonight and pack him up first and take him to Gaston’s before we started packing.  We knew it would confuse him too much if he saw us packing our stuff AND his stuff, but yet he wasn’t staying and going with us.  So as I type this, Bailey is now at Gaston’s starting his week long sleepover.

You’ll also notice Lamby (first time making a blog appearance) is not packed away.  Lamby is Bailey’s favorite toy.  He gets really upset when it is packed away so Lamby is either last to go in right before we leave or just travels out of the bag.

As for me… well I need to start packing my own stuff now.

Really early morning flight tomorrow.  See you guys in a week!
