It's spring break and I'm on vacation at the beach. Yes, the weather is good. Yes, I'm getting a tan. Yes, I've had a massage. Yes, I've had awesome meals. Yes, I've slept late. Yes, I've had drinks with umbrellas in them.
So, why am I a little blue? I miss my girls.
It sucks that people can take screaming, crying, cracker crumb spreading, children to stay in hotel rooms, not to mention fine dining establishments, but when it comes to pets it is total drama to find a place that will take a dog over 15 pounds, much less two of them. So my girls are staying at a fabulous place about two hours away from us that is for Greyhounds only, of which I will write more about later this week. But for tonight, I thought I'd share the make-shift art therapy session that I used to help me get over the hump of missing my babies.
These artistic creations were crafted on BeFunky. It's a free service that allows you to upload your own pictures and apply various filters to the piece to create a funky, fresh piece of art. It was a lot of fun trying out all of the options. I used a wicked old photo of Seka showing off her pearly whites and applied the Warhol filter. And since Roxy is such a character, I used one of the cartoon filters on one of the very first pictures I ever took of her.
So, until the day the world wises up and realizes that dogs are less likely to destroy a hotel room, vomit on the floor, wipe poop on the walls, and cause less noise than an 18 month old child, I'll have to learn how to comfort myself when we leave the girls for an extended time.
