Ike's gotten a little lost in the shuffle between my travel schedule and with the addition of Caysun. It's easy to forget about dogs when they're being good, isn't it? And Ikey's been a whole lotta good, especially lately. Especially with the addition of the little spitfire we call Caysun.
We're getting a taste of what "Life Without Ike" will be like. And we don't like it at all, especially Caysun!
Yesterday began a three-day trek for Ike. He's being put into service as a representative for Hero Dogs at their many fundraisers and public appearances. Yesterday, Ike and I went to a local country club to join Hero Dogs and all the other puppy raisers (and pups!) for a golf tournament to benefit Hero Dogs. I had to leave Ike behind because they needed him the next day (today) to head to a Federal office building to represent Hero Dogs at the local Combined Federal Campaign (CFC).
Ike is Caysun's go-to guy for fun and entertainment. I didn't realize just how much we (the people) depended on Ike to run interference, to puppy sit, and to pretty much keep the puppy out of trouble — until he wasn't here for a few days, that is.
Thankfully, the big dummy will be back here with us tomorrow.
But: in only a month (give or take) Ike will be returning to Hero Dogs for good. No more coming back home.
Ikey, you will be missed in more ways than one! You're going to get lots of hugs and kisses when you come back tomorrow because now we know just how much we rely on you here at home.
