And I'm sort of freaking out about being away from Bernie for 10 days. I know she'll be okay because my best friend has taken her overnight a few times before and my best friend is her favorite auntie but still... I can remember a time or two where we watched my other friend's malt, Amelie while he was away on business and when he got back she wouldn't come to him and hid under our bed or in our laps at first. I think it broke his heart a little. Granted he was often gone for up to three weeks but I can't help but worry about what this first extended time away will be like for my pup and for me.
