Call social services

I'm the worst mother in the world. I'm sitting here at work and little Gatsby is at home without me. I had no idea how hard it would be to leave him this morning--I actually felt almost sick. It won't be for long; I'm going home at noon to be with him but only for about 15 minutes or so. I should have stayed home today but he has to get used to being alone at some point. I think he's happy in his kennel...he has his toys and he can just curl up and go to sleep.....
But I still feel like the worst mom EVER!!!

He's going to do great, Kelly. He'll be sleeping the whole time you're gone and then be ecstatic to see you at noon and then he'll go back to sleep when you leave. When you come home this evening, he'll be a ball of energy and so happy to see you. I think I read somewhere that dogs and puppies sleep something like 18 hours a day.

Oh, but they do need to pee--so it's good you're going home at noon! :)

Definitely!! I have to come up with something for Tuesdays and Thursdays because I have a shorter lunch....I'm hoping to have a sub for awhile because the boy definitely needs to relieve himself!!

Let's not go overboard. A dog, no matter how cute, is not a child.

Can you hire in a dog walker on those days, Kelly?

One better--my mom is coming down to take him out during her lunch on those days :)
