I wonder what Wookie would say about this whole adventure. I know he enjoys the hikes, new smells, new sounds, and new critters. But I also know that he misses home where he was able to run freely around our property (no fences). I believe he would have mixed reviews….
Backstory: Wookie is 3 years old. He has been with me since he was 8 weeks old. We have been together almost 24/7 since he came home with us. I have always taken him to work with me (he had a bed and toys in my office) or I have worked remotely where he was able to lay at my feet.
He is now left alone in a camper for 8 hours/day. Based on his response every day when I leave (he begins shaking all over when he sees me grab my keys) and when I get home (he squeals and sounds as if he is having an asthma attack for 10-15 minutes every time), he is having some severe separation anxiety. It’s almost as if he thinks I have died and came back from the dead every day.
I know that he also misses my husband and his very dear friend Pearl. He and Pearl played chase constantly back at home. The picture above is his response every time he hears a diesel truck go by. He is certain that they are coming back anytime now. When we go to the dog park here, he looks for them since that was one of the last times that he saw them. I feel guilty for that.
So we hike. A lot.
