John is a very sad hound this week. Dell is off this week being a show dog and John got left behind.
John has to defend our home from the evil squirrel menace without his buddy Dell. It's up to him to police the floors for any wayward crumbs, which I might state he is far less diligent than Dell. No wrestling at my feet and no more dog pile on the dog couch.
However he does get to do fun things like go to soccer practice. I won't take the two dogs, it's just far too much bother. But one dog, that's doable.
We'll get Dell back next week, so John's suffering will not be eternal. Though with those sad, sad hound eyes he'll tell you otherwise.
