Lake Balboa

The picture above was taken this morning at the dog run. The neighborhood we’re in and the RV park we’re camping at aren’t the greatest for walking. So Curtis has been getting some pretty limited walks. Fortunately he’s an old guy who tires quickly.

After work yesterday we finally checked out Lake Balboa which is down the street from us. Sometimes the greatest places are right under your nose.

I’ve got some guilt brewing because Curtis is going to the kennel on Saturday. Sunday we’re flying to New York for Christmas. We’re only going to be gone for 3 nights, but C needs to go in the night before and picked up the day after we get back because of our departure and arrival times. I know he’ll be fine, but I can’t help but worry about him not eating, or developing another ulcer or just knowing that he’ll have terrible anxiety the entire time. My poor guy.

Well, Saturday before he goes in, he’s taking a long walk at Lake Balboa.

    Oh, I wish there was a dog sitter in your RV park that could check on him a couple of times a day, walk him and feed him….that way he could stay in his own space with his familiar family things…..check on it….there has to be somebody good, loving, safe and competent in Las Vegas….or right there in your park….somebody like me….if I were there I would take care of him for sure…..that would be a wonderful gift for him….at a kennel, he is likely to pick up an illness…I know you will do your best…this type of thing pricks all my tenderness issues about beloved family animals, like it does you….xoxo….Peaceful Christmas Season…..Kiss the boys for us and Hannah….

    Oh I feel your guilt. Every time we bring Phineas to the kennel I worry the whole time that he’s not eating, or not sleeping, or missing us as much as we miss him. And then when we go back to pick him up they always gush about how sweet he is and how he ate everyday, and played with other dogs. But it still doesn’t make it any less hard to leave him the next time. I am sure Curtis will be fine and the time away from you will just fly by. We (and Phineas) look forward to meeting him when we see you guys in January. Safe travels!

    We have a 16 yr old Pom and we have been lucky to let her stay home and my best friend comes and check often on her. We still worry so much about her even then. I will be saying prayers for Curtis. Be safe and Merry Christmas! Hugs Curtis!
