Wish Penny luck. Or more specifically, our friends. After two years we are going on our first extended vacation without the dog. We've left her with her doggie daycare for weekends before as they don't kennel the dogs separately, which she can't handle. (We had a horrible experience trying to use a traditional kennel.) But for 5 days it would be too much and too expensive to leave her boarded, so our friends who know her and have a dog she occasionally plays with, are going to dog sit her. They'll try taking her to their house, or if it doesn't work out then one of them will stay at our place with Penny. Of course she's been extra naughty and destructive this week, giving us anxiety that we will be down one family of friends come next week. But on the bright side, our friend is our vet's sister!
