My boyfriend and i will be away for three days to California this week and my dad is taking care of Tofu for us, but i'm very worry about Tofu staying home by himself for 9-10hrs each day. My dad has to work and can't come home during lunch. i has an exercise pen for him. inside the exercise pen are his food, water, pee pee pad and his comfy, warm crate(bed). the door to the crate is always open so he can come in and out whenever he want. but the door for the exercise pen is close whenever he's in there when i'm not home. sorry for going on and on about this but i just would like everyone to picture it my concern is that is is ok for him to stay home by himself that long with out anyone there? and if anyone ever done that before? i know that he sleep most of the time when i put him in there. just thinking about leaving him make me so worry. i know that he's home with my dad, but i still worry. i just worry that he don't know Tofu as much as i do. i miss him already, and worry if he'll miss me because i'm not there. i don't want to go at all but i have to. four days to me seem forever. everyday for the past week i told my dad what i normally do for tofu. like alway have water and food out for him. not to give too much treats b/c he won't eat his food. which treat to give at what time. what to do when he look fatique, how may minutes are need to heat his heating pad... etc. sorry for rampling, but i'm so worry about leaving him.
