The first day I dropped him off, I felt kind of bad. He's gotten so used to being home with his family and going to the dog park everyday that, at first, he seemed a little depressed about being back to school. But in true Ray fashion, he quickly adapted to his old routine. I think it helps that he loves the entire daycare staff. Every morning he pulls me into the daycare and every evening he is a little reluctant to leave.
When I pick him up at the end of the day, I get an updated status report from Kristen or Chance (to see photos of them click on the links. http://www.raytheblinddog.com/2009/07/special-needs-dog-not_23.html http://www.raytheblinddog.com/2009/08/random-ray-photos.html "Ray played with Harry and Hurley ALL DAY today. He should be good and tired." "Ray played HARD with Porkchop today, then he laid down for a nap just before you got here." "Ray took a nap this morning but he was really wired when he woke up so he played and played for the rest of the day." (that was today). Usually when Ray gets home he
- eats dinner
- tries to raid the cat dishes
- plays with his bone a bit
- lays down for a good chew
- hits the hay
Today he skipped steps 3 and 4 and went right to 5. I think it's been a long, very fun week for Ray and he has one more day to go. It's not over yet. Looks like I'll be full-time for the entire month.
