In my absence...

I am not sure if you guys know but in just TWO weeks Mom and Dad are going on their honeymoon to the Netherlands and Belgium. For the new dogs, Mom and Dad got married this past June. It only took them 8 years of being together before they got married, so its no surprise it took them 5 months to go on the honeymoon after the wedding.

So they got out the big suitcase...

Tanner and I are helping them pack. I had to explain to Tanner that a honeymoon is when they go and be all smoochy smoochy like this! We certainly don't want to go if they are doing THAT. However, we will help them pack...

What do you think they need more, the corn or the keys???? We will be at my Grandparent's house eating LOTS of treats. The only thing is, I will be gone for a WEEK! A WEEK with no blogging, no dog friends, no Twitter, and NO SOPHIE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sophie is my girlfriend. I am Sophie's number ONE boyfriend. She has quite a few boyfriends, so being NUMBER ONE is quite a distinction. However, in my absence she will need a new number one... I declare my buddy Wally number one while I am gone.

Wally, starting November 8th you are officially number one. THE MINUTE I RETURN you will relinquish that status immediately. Take good care of my Sophie!! *sob*

My darling Joe! I hope Wally is up to it. Being the tough dude he is, I'm sure he will rise to the occasion; if not in stature, at least in spirit.

I will miss you loads and loads.

Oh Joey & Tanner! We're gonna miss you. Why can't the hoomans take you both along? Then you guys can celebrate with them & not miss out on all the great food & fun they're gonna have. I think that's more of a honeymoon celebration if you ask me! Agree?

OMD!! How are we gonna survive a week without you guys?? I mean sheesh.. do they really NEED a honeymoon?? can they not just smooch lots at home (out of your line of sight of course)
Mum is shaking her head at me and saying that they not only need a honeymoon but they deserve one..

ok.. I guess we will muster on without you, i'm not happy though.. now if you had made ME Sophies #1 in your absense that would be a different matter altogether!

Joey....Tell your mom and dad to pack lots of warm stuff. It can be rather chilly in Belgium this time of year, and Azrizonans have skinny blood.

I think our humans have a lot in common. My folks are getting married in August after 8 years of dating and then are doing this "honey moon" thing 5 months after that! What are "honey moons" anyway? They sure sound tasty. And you're telling me that dogs are not invited to the honey and moon feasting?! wTF?! You've got to find a way to get in on that.

Joe, I will miss you and Tanner while you are at your Grandpa and Grandma's home. You will get lots of lovies there, I bet!

All good wishes to your Mom and Dad too, for a happy honeymoon and a good trip to and fro!

Woohoo for a trip to the Netherlands! Your mom and dad are going to love it.

And of course, your guys are going to love being at your grandparents.

Ooooo a smoochy honeymoon???? Do you think they lick noses too?

Maybe you guys should just pack yourselves? I mean, what more do your humans need other than the keys, corn cob, Joe and Tanner?

Belgium and the Netherlands are great!! Tell your mom & dad to check out all the chocolate shops. Belgian chocolate is the BEST!

It was so thoughtful of you to put together a survival kit for your fans. It will be a lonely two weeks for us...
