Sherlock's big day, do your pets act similar?

Today I got my permanent bridge put it (how is it that that hurt worse than getting the tooth pulled?), but the good news was that Sherlock (my 1 yr. old 3/4 chihuahua and 1/4 corgi)got to take a trip to my parent's house. The complex was spraying the apartments for pest control today so I took him to my parent's house. So my mom and I came back from the dentist, and Sherlock just went crazy. He was so excited, he couldnt' sit still. I don't think his tail stopped wagging once. My dad awoke this morning to a dog's tail wacking his face. I was in their living room and I heard a shout, lol. I just came back home and he is now in my arms fast asleep. Normally when I'm gone during the day he takes naps. Well, he had a whole new world to explore today, so he didn't get any naps. I think he is pooped now. It's cute. It's so cute I don't mind that I'm only typing with one finger. Do your pets do that? When they go to a new place and have fun, do they come home and just go to sleep of exhaustion?

I occasionally take my Cat Prissy to my mom's when I spend the night. She will check every nook and cranny out and is a little busy body before she will settle down for a nap she has to feel safe and comfortable I guess. But still I think she gets excited because it is something different then her usual routine.

Aaaah that is just so cute. My dogs were too big to ever do that but I have a photo of them after they got back from the lake one day sleeping back to back on the sofa and they look like two bookends bless so I can imagine how Sherlock looks now. Thank you for sharing, it made me smile. Ellie :D

A friend of mine had a black labrador and a little chihuahua. Sometimes they would sleep side by side, curled up together. I wish I could have a big dog too. But there is 25 lb. limit on how much our dogs can weigh. I hope someday to get a black or yellow lab.

I was lucky to have both Duke was a yellow lab and Jason was a black one. Duke was this young at heart mischievious one and Jason was the grumpy old man but they got on so well and as well as my girls, as son not born at the time, they were my babies. I haven't a scanner otherwise I would upload the pic of them as it is just fantastic. Ellie :D

He sounds like a very cute dog. I do not take my pets anywhere, and since they are cats, they nap whenever they want to . It is very cuddly around here now. The long haired one is just like a little baby.

I'd like to have a cat, but I'm not sure how it would get along with my dog.

Hi Spookybutt, My sister has a chihuahua and a big woolly cat, and when she and her hubby go away on a holiday they check the cat into a cat motel and leave the dog with a friend who has about half a dozen other little dogs. The cat hates the motel, and the dog loves his little friends. So when she and hubby return from holidays, both the cat and dog give her the cold shoulder treatment for a few days - the cat, because of being left in that motel all alone, and the dog because she took him away from all his little play-friends! Seems she just can't win!

Aw, they both sound cute! My dad once lived in a pet motel for a semester in college. He was paying his way through school, and couldn't afford the dorm. There was a pet motel across the street, so he and a friend rented a room. He said it was about the size of two janitor closets. Thankfully their friends let them shower in the dorms.

My "Baby" never leaves the house except for every once in awhile.. And anytime anything whatsoever disturbs her day of rest and relaxation, she is so very tired.. We have taken her to visit a few times, but by the time we got back home, you would have thought she had worked for 48 hrs in a row, she is so very tired and all she wants to do is sleep.. She stays home by herself all day while we are gone and by the time we get back home she is all over us, until she gets someone to stop and pet her.. It is miserable to try and bring the groceries in the house as she is underfoot and will not stop.. We also have to wait until we get our arms emptied and take her to the yard to pet her as she gets so excited, she pees all over everything.. We found this out after having to have the sofa cleaned..

Oh man, that is funny, lol. A lady who lives in my complex will come talk to me when I am outside and she is walking her dog. I bend down to pet her dog, and he gets so excited he pees! After the second time I have learned how to get out of the line of fire.

When I had my dog he used to go with me to my parent's too..for the weekend. And how he loved going to grandpa and grandmas...my mother especially spoiled him and my dad is the one who taught him to speak and shake hands. (that took alot of hot dogs)...he would sleep the whole 200 miles it took to get home and once here he would go lay on his blankee....and stay there for the best part of another day!

Oh, how cute! Yeah, I wish Sherlock would crawl up in his blanket. But he likes it in my lap a little too much.

Oh yes Gissi certainly does because he is to busy running round and exploring getting attention so by the time we get home he gets on hisSettee and starts snoring lol

Gosh, you should do that more often! It would have been very good for him. They do have doggy daycare centres for this very reason, and if I had a dog, I'd be sending them along. They socialise and get plenty of exercise, meaning they aren't so hyper when you get home from a hard days work. They just sit there and actually behave! lol.
