For now, the Something Wagging team is split up.
As you read this, Mike and I are in Panama. Honey is waiting for us at home.
I’ve got the same questions from different people. So I thought I’d answer them in one place for everyone who worries that Honey is feeling neglected.
What’s Honey doing while you’re gone?
The same things she does when we’re home—eating, sleeping, pooping, playing, and just being adorable, like always.
Who is keeping her company?
Our good friend Diana is also a pet sitter. She’ll be living in our house while we’re gone. Honey absolutely adores her and won’t mind us being gone one little bit. Especially since Diana lets her sleep on the bed.
What in the world are you doing in Panama?
Trying to figure out if sailing in a beautiful, tropical environment is half as much fun as sailing in the icy, inland waters of North America. We’re meeting our new friends on the Gilana who have dedicated their lives to teaching others how to mellow out and enjoy all the wonderful world has to offer.
Why didn’t you take Honey with you? Doesn’t she like to sail?
Honey is fine with sailing. An entire day spent flying or in airports? Not so much.
Believe me, she’ll be much happier at home.
How long will you be gone?
About a month.
Will you be blogging from Panama?
No freaking way. We’ll be in a pretty remote area—the Guna Yala control 365 islands but only 40 or so of them are inhabited.
Coconut palms are not known for providing good wi-fi.
But I have pre-scheduled some posts. And I encourage you to respond to each other in the comments. After all, the comments are the best written part of Something Wagging.
Will you bring us something from your trip?
What are you thinking? A puppy? A dog fish?
Will you continue Something Wagging when you return?
I certainly hope so. Unless, of course, I become so indolent in the tropics that I lose my ability to spend three hours each morning writing blog posts.
Or, unless Honey decides she’s tired of being the star of the blog.
We’ll be back before you know it. Can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to while we’re gone. In the meantime, check out this quick video of the part of the world we’re visiting.
Your Turn: What’s the longest time you’ve ever been away from your dog. Who found it harder? You? Or your dog?
