Though North now spends my mini vacays at Pet Camp or Wag Hotel, when I lived in NYC, I'd usually just bring him up to my parents' house to stay with Gamma and Gampa. The first time I left him was on a long trip to London, and I called often (and I mean often) to check up.
One day my mother put me on speakerphone to talk directly to North – I guess my silly pup ran all around the room from the phone and to the door looking for me! I haven't had the chance to try it since then, have you? If so, how do your furry friends react to familiar voices coming from the speaker?
