Our Depressed Dog

We are working on day #4 without kids and Ranger, the Schnauzer, just can't take it anymore. He hasn't eaten much for me since they left and just lays around on the kids' beds. Now, this wouldn't be so bad except he threw up on Grant's carpet. Of course, it's the only carpet in the house that I did get shampooed this week, so I'm sure that was his reasoning for picking that one. Grrrr....

As soon as I got done cleaning that five by five (guessing) inch spot, guess what else he did...He threw up again and had diarrhea in two heaping piles in his kennel. Ugh! Where are those kids to clean it up???
Ranger grumbling: "Just leave me alone and get my kids back."
Ranger's thoughts: "You're going to put this on your blog, huh?"

As for me, I'm still enjoying the peace and quiet. Next year, the dog goes to Grandma and Grandpa's house too!

Poor dog! Poor you! Maybe he needs a companion dog! Then you'll have 2 messes to clean!

The poor dog has now been made blog fodder, a low in the dog community.

I had a Schnauzer as a kid that looked just like him. Good dogs.

awww...I feel bad for the poochie. He misses his buddies! But major drag for you having to clean up those messes! Yuck.

Maybe this'll help everyone learn to appreciate those kids after all...

My dogs do the same thing when we leave them at the kennel. Guess that's why we leave them there.

I had to take Ranger in today for medication to solve his diarrhea problem. I hope it helps! Who knew that dogs can take depression this far. Believe it or not, but Andy had the kids talk to the dog over the phone and he appeared to perk up! Pictures of that could make for a funny blog!

I hopped over from Cheeseboy's blog. I love your header by the way.

We have a Miniature Schnauzer as well as a small terrier and a beagle. At least they have each other when everyone's gone.

Your little doggie looks so sad! He can come over and have a doggie playdate with mine maybe that will cheer him up! :)
