Going Away, Concerned about Sacha... Thoughts?
I've had sacha for about 3-4 weeks now, and of course the christmas holidays hit and my MIL wants us to fly out of state for the week. Our tickets are already bought (I got volun-told when it would be) We are flying southwest and they told us they do not do cargo holding for pets and Sacha is too big for the carry on carriers.. and not old enough to board at the place I wanted to board her.
I'm leaving her in a friend's care, and I'm kinda worried about her being confused about being with me (loving me like mommy) then going to my friends house for a week and then coming back here, or possibly becoming stand offish and breaking that bond with me and the family.
Am I just being too protective or will she be okay and just excited to see me again? Or is it a real true concern? Its such a short time to have had her and then have to go away and she is REALLY attached to me; but my husband says it's only for a week she'll be fine.
I really don't know what to do. Any advice is appreciated.
