April 17

It occurred to me that I have spent a night away from Bob before. I have spent a night away from whatever dog we have owned before. But I have never ,to the best of my memory, spent a night in my own house without one of them. I brought Bob to his respite house today so that I can have a 5 day respite,and he seems to be comfortable there. His room is magnificent,he has a screened porch that overlooks a brook. We haven't mastered the phone system there, yet, but the nurses are very nice about getting Bob to the phone. He seemed to be in good spirits when I called to check on him.I think that I can relax ,knowing that he is well looked after. I just had to remind him that room service ends when he gets home again and not to fall in love with his two attentive nurses.
Noodle was harder to leave. I didn't want him to think that he was being abandoned again.I didn't wash his bedding so he would have a familiar scent with him. I brought over his neon green crate, plus another bed with a knitted blanket. I typed out a page and1/2of what to do with him. The person that I left him with is very sensitive to pups, so I Know that he is in good hands. I really hated to leave Noodles.
Now it is my turn for R&R. I have my fastpasses and a list of attractions to see at Disney. I'm ready to hit the road.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
