This is Fruitycake The Raccoon. Today will be the absolutely first day that I won’t have Boy Person with me when I go to bed.
Brickle says that he’s had to say goodbye to the persons in the past.
Boy Person used to work a lot out of town. The persons went on something called vacation without him and Digby. And so Brickle says that we can make it thru this next week. While Boy Person goes to that Italy place.
We drive him to the airport this afternoon. And I just don’t like it.
Brickle explains to me that he has to go to do all kinds of paperwork that persons like to shuffle around. Brickle explained too that he has to check out our little house to make sure it’s ok for me and Fruitycake. He’s never met it in person.
I understand all of this. But even when you understand something and the reasons behind it, that’s not always how you feel better.
I won’t feel better until we are all together again. And right now, we don’t know if it’s going to be a few days or a week.
Family is a funny thing. You love each other, but you irritate each other sometimes.
You want to be with each other, but you don’t always feel heard. Or maybe you are going thru a rough patch with your family. That happens to everyone.
But take it from someone…me…who didn’t have a family at all as a stray dog. I knew something was missing. And now I definitely know that. Life is good with family. And you don’t know how much you need each other until you don’t.
So when we drive Boy Person to the airport in Orlando today, it’s going to be a long drive. But we will go, me and Brickle too. We want to see him every minute we can until he leaves. And we will be missing him until he gets back. We will keep you updated…
