Doggy Day Care

We're now officially "those jerks." You know, the ones that take their dog to doggy day care. This is something I never would have considered doing in the past - it just wasn't necessary. Maxwell was a well behaved dog, for the most part, and did fine without supervision. Andy on the other hand has way too much puppy exuberance at the moment and doesn't handle being alone very well. Taking him to doggy day care once a week is the only real option that makes sense at this point. 

I'll be the first to admit we haven't done enough to deal with Andy's separation issues. Part of me is hoping he'll just grow out it...but the other part of me has a feeling it's not going to be that easy. Doggy day care is a temporary fix, one that we're going to experiment with this semester, but I know we need to address the situation more aggressively. It sucks being a prisoner to the pup and never knowing what we'll come home to when he is left to his own devices.
