Good and bad – Wednesday 11th August 2021

Good and bad

Today is good and bad all rolled into one. The good is that we’re going to see Mum. It’s been a long week waiting to see her again. Both she and I have reached the point where we’re finding it hard being apart. I’ve already told you how jealous I am of Shadow. I want to go home with Mum and I know Mum feels the same way. She says life just isn’t right without me by her side. She says she never wants to be separated from me again, ever. And quite honestly, that’s just fine by me.

The bad news

The bad news is that it looks as though we aren’t going to complete on our house purchase quite as soon as we hoped. Mum and Dad are doing everything they can to make sure we’re ready, but it turns out there might be delays the other side. I don’t want to complain too much as I think Mum is pretty low about it all. She has promised that once Shadow has had some time with her then she will do a swap so that she and I can have some time, but it now means I will have to come back to kennels for a while too.

Now when

She has told us we just need to be patient. Thankfully, that’s something Aristotle is quite good at. Mum has told him she is really hoping that we will all be with her for his birthday in September, so that’s something to aim for. It’s no good me getting cross with Mum about it all, there’s nothing she can do about it and she really is fed up. I hope Shadow can cheer her up a bit. Unfortunately it looks like being another hot day, which may mean a short visit again. Oh well, it’s better than nothing.
