Thanks Mom & Dad

Oreo did great with my parents while we were away. He got better and more comfortable with each day that passed.

I was simply thrilled that he ate/peed for them. It was a bonus that he actually played in the yard, slept with my parents on the bed, and got involved in the sheet changing process(one of Oreo's favorite games).


The best part was I enjoyed my vacation without any worries.   Thanks so much mom & dad.

Of course, I was very happy to see the little guy when we got home though!

After unpacking, Jeff made Oreo a toy out of his old socks. Oreo thinks it is the best thing ever!

Your welcome Sara and Jeff. We had fun with Oreo and we are so happy you finally got away alone for a few days. I also got to sit on the sofa for long periods of time with Oreo's head next to my leg. How could I get up and disturb him! We watched Oprah together and went to bed early so he would think it was a normal day. I have some easter treats for him but I know he will only want pieces of the fresh kielbasa from the food lady tomorrow.

So happy to hear that Oreo did well with them. LOL over him loving the old sock toy. My shelties are pleased easily with my old socks too! :)

I'm glad you got home safely, and it looks like Oreo is, too! It's such a relief to have somebody watch the dogs for you when you can't be with them.

Aww...great to hear Oreo had a good time too!

It sounds like everyone had a good time whilst you were away! It's great that Oreo was relaxed with your parents; definitely better than his worry about the other petsitter.

So wonderful that Oreo was relaxed with your parents. And how wonderful they could do it! I bet he was pretty excited to see you anyway though...even with wonderful parents to keep him, you're his special safe place.

Bonnie, our sheltie prior to Katie LOVED husband's socks..as long as he put a knot in them she knew they were hers. She didn't have any other toys, just ratty socks. Poor girl...she wasn't quite the high maintenance princess that Katie is.
