Just curious how everyone's pets react when the owners go away and return. I have heard some hilarious stories from friends.

My two Shelties weren't too happy when I went to OR for 9 days recently, even though I had a house sitter. Shelties are very loyal to their owners and often get sick when their owners leave. I never put them in a kennel cause I found that to make them worse, emotionally and physicially.

So when I arrived home Sunday morning, Irish, the female gave me the dirtiest look as if to say about time you got home...or worse yet...I liked the house sitter better. I really wasn't sure. unsure.gif But then I heard from the house sitter today that Irish peed on the carpet after I left. Plus, Nikki would not eat after a few days we had left and even after I returned. Even when I did return, he would not eat at first and kept watching my feet as if to see if I was going anywhere. Both seem to be fine now, but they sulked and pouted the first few days after we returned home.

Interested in reading your stories how your pets react when you leave and return home.

Because I work at a remote site, I have to board my dogs with a friend for two weeks out of every month. It is just part of the routine of their lives. They are always excited to go over to Mike's, and they are always equally excited to come back home.

You might want to consider leaving your dogs with a sitter from time to time, just to help them become accustomed to it. Then your coming and going and coming back again won't be such a big deal to them.

Taking them to a day care that will give them a chance to interact with other dogs once a week or so should do the trick at least at first. Toss in a weekend getaway with your beloved once a month or so, and before long they won't think twice about being left in the care of others.

Georgie treats us being gone 6 hours like 6 days. He'll jump in my arms and attack me with kisses. Haven't been away long enough for a sitter yet.

When we went to scotland and ireland for a month our 11 year old dog(Sparky) that we never really leave as we take him to dog friendly places when we holiday. He was in a big depression when we got back . he was thrilled to see us and barked at us for about an hour ( fair enough) he didn't really get back to normal untill we took him on his own beach holiday with us . then he was back to normal . i'm dreading leaving him in 2009 but awell

Only once when he was alive did my cat Meathead really show displeasure at being left alone overnight. I was in a 24 hour across the lake race and when I got home after being up for about 30 hours I flopped down on the couch. Meathead jumped up to what I thought was a welcome home, Well he walked up to my face turned around lifted his tail and passed wind with his butt about 1/2 inch from my nose. What really got me was he didn't jump down but turned his head to look at me and slowly sauntered down and off the couch. Guess I was told.

It's just so hard going away with pets, my husband and I are going away for almost 2 weeks the beginning of May, a friend is going to stay here with the gang, but it's alot of work for someone who works to do that, I have 2 airedales, a pug/bulldog mix and two parrots, I worry so, but their going to be in great hands, not just being fed and cared for but I know they will get the love and attention they need.I'l so lucky to have a friend like that.
But, after I get home, I know we will be shunned by the dales and parrots, not the pug, she's mindless, I went away a few years ago and one of the dales wouldnt even look at me for a few days.

My dog is just a big puppy. When I come home he runs back and forth from one end of the house to the other jumping a 4 foot coffee table length ways each way. If he has done something wrong while I was gone (rarely now) he will run to the front door and get his front half in the coat closet. He appears to think that if he can not see me I can not see him! As I stated in an earlier post, he is a real piece of work!
