I just realized that I've been using LJ for over a year now! Well I posted a meme back in Feb'05, I guess I really started using it in early March.

We're off this weekend for a mini-skiing vacation. Well the guys ski and snowboard, the girls hang around the condo and go shopping in the village. I so can't wait for this, especially after this week. I have to do the closing call of the audit on the way to Tremblant. 5pm PST is 8pm here - they seem to forget this.

The only sad part about the whole thing is having to kennel Chet. He's always so excited to go for a drive, then gets so down when he remembers the kennel. To make it worse for the poor dude today, he needed to get some of his shots updated. And to make it even worse, he started out with a 10am appointment, but while there hubby got a call that our fire alarm was going off at home! Turned out the power was off in the neihborhood, firetrucks and everything showed up. I think Chet got tossed around a bit in the wild ride, but he finally got his shots at 10:50.

Now I just have to bring him off to puppy jail *sniff*.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!
Who does she think she is?

I don't know if I could kennel an animal. I would feel bad or I would worry something could happen to them.

What do they do at kennels anyway? The animals I mean.

This one is pretty cool. Each animal has a run, and a door to an outside run. A couple of times during the day they match up some of the animals and let them play together in the yard too.

He also gets a couple of walks a day, and the staff will also spend extra time with any one who looks sad.

Oh BTW about why we kennel, Chet was a found puppy and has some 'issues'. While I've had many people offer to look after him, I have to remember that he is an 80lb dog, and I'd rather have someone who is *very* familiar with dogs look after him.

We've tried to find a condo that will allow us to bring him, but haven't had any luck yet. My MIL or FIL take care of the turtle and cat, but aren't strong enough to look after a sled dog *g*

I hate Kenneling Ginger too! She is the same way, loves to be the car. A block away from the kennel she starts to freak out, I feel so guilty! :(
Have a fun time. :)

Don't worry about the pooch...he will be fine. Go have some fun!

I need to be looking into having someone watch our 2 cats for when we go on vacation. I hate asking someone to come over & feed them everyday......I might just take them with me.......

First, I want to tell you: Happy 1rst LJ year!

The time passes so fast, doesn't it? my first year will be in May.

I am sure Chet will be fine since, knowing you, you chose the best kennel possible. Poor dear, with the shots on top of that! Hopefully, he will be so happy to see you when the weekend is over, he will forget all about the previous week inconveniences! :D

You go to Mont-Tremblant? wow, it's beautiful at this time of the year, I am sure you will have a great time. (and snow is not a problem these days, is it? hehee!)

Is it the first time you go to Mont-Tremblant?

A very nice evening to you! :)

Your description of the kennel to the previous poster sounds great. I know he'll miss you, but it seems he'll be in good hands.

Now, y'all go and have a fantastic time! Safe trip.

I've been at this LJ thang (on and off) for almost six years now. Goodness, I'm old.

They say that animals have no concept of time. ?????
I know that when I drop of my greyhound at the Pet Spa & Resort she is not at all sad. She's all bouncy and wagging her tail - makes me thing...Geez, does she like it here better than home? When I pick her up, she is so happy and looks great. It's like a vacation for her too. I dislike kennels! She was traumatized in a kennel-she wouldn't come to me for days...I guess she was really upset at me for leaving her in a place like that. Lesson Learned.
Have a great vacation!
Good luck Chet. Mommy loves you-don't forget that =-)
