Missing My Human Brother - Monday Mischief

But not to worry. I, Toby, am on the job of comforting them and soon they will be all better.

My human brother didn't come home last night. I waited under the front window all night for him.  I wonder if it had something to do with the suitcases and packing on Saturday. And driving to some mysterious place called D.C. twice last week. 

Yes Toby. We're sad but also proud that Kevin has begun his new job teaching English to little children in South Korea. We aren't going to see him for a year. So we are sad. But what an adventure for him. 

Adventure? Who needs adventure if it's going to make my people sad? Sounds like MISCHIEF to me!

See Toby, unlike puppies, who stay in the house with their families when they grow up, human children must start living somewhere else when they grow up. They need to be independent and someday, if they're lucky, have their own families and pets. It's just how it is for humans.

Well I'm certainly glad to be a canine then. Because I'm quite happy to let you take care of the details of giving me The Good Life! And I'll provide the comfort for as long as you need it.

  1. Oh boy, that's rough! I'm sure he will have a blast teaching English in South Korea though. My cousin is just about to move back from Japan--he lived there for 3 or 4 years teaching English to the school children (and even taught some adult classes, as well) through the JET Program. I always love to look at all his pictures that he puts up on Facebook...they're so beautiful (plus, some of them are really funny when stores put up signs in English and the English is waaaay off!). :)
