Relationship Troubles + Camp Breakups

Hey Dudes.

How’s it hangin’?  I can’t believe it’s already Tuesday.  I had kind of a rough weekend and have been taking my time getting back on all four paws.  I’ve been having some relationship troubles with my camp boyfriend, Toby, and it has done nothing but cause more anxiety for my worry belly.

Toby and I have been together for almost a year now.  We met in the play yard at camp, and have been inseparable ever since.  We even made the bulletin board last spring which is pretty much the most official thing ever when it comes to camp relationships.  It’s even more serious than Facebook.

We were a little rocky in the beginning, but for the most part, the getting was good.  We were even able to share toys with each other, which is such a rare thing find in relationships these days.

Recently we’ve been on the rocks a little more, spending less and less time together.  I’ll admit, it’s partly my fault.  I missed a few days of camp when I was away, and because of my worry belly, but to be fair, even when I am there Toby just wants to sleep.  I mean, I know that we’re getting older, but I still feel young.  I don’t want to get caught up in a cycle of daytime napping and early dinners with all the white furs. Before you know it we’ll have to switch to wet food and all of our good days will officially be over.

I guess it all just feels distant.  There’s a new young golden in our play group that I’ve been spending some time with.  I know it’s not going to go anywhere – he’s only visiting until he’s big enough to move into the large dog group – but it’s still exciting.  I know it sounds sad but I just needed to have a little attention.  I mean seriously, look at me, I should be out on the streets crossing leashes with all sorts of pups, not staying tethered to the same one.

I guess I always knew it was just a matter of time until we had to go our separate ways, but I just didn’t think it would come so soon.  I’ve just been sick over it all weekend with a horrible worry belly but I’m getting a little better each day.

I hope you’re all well.  If you know any cute (athletic) young pups out there that you wouldn’t mind setting my up on a play date with, I’d really appreciate it.  No big sniffers though, they creep me out.

Stay cool my babies,

Bug
