Leaving This Face

Dear sweet Butter was particularly dear and sweet at the beginning of last week.

After Conservative Hubby was already in Georgia golfing and around the time I started packing for my travels down south, Butter put on his angel face.

He knew somehow--even before he spotted my suitcase--that he was getting left behind.

But rather than his usual mournful gaze and puppy pout, he decided to woo me with his big eyes and most serene poses.

And goodness, it almost worked. Had I not been flying, I may have scooped him up and taken him with me.

Instead, he was stuck at home all week. Lounging in the sun with his dog sitter, who no doubt lavished him with all the attention such a sweet little pooch deserves.

So don't feel sorry for him. Not this time anyway.
