A lot of the time he was sleeping somewhere else in the house but I miss him. I miss him not being off in some other room and about to wander in here - I keep expecting it and he doesn't. Of course.
In the week I was saying how it had been ages since I'd had him here and it was actually very freeing not to have to come directly home from work to feed him or to worry about whether it's too hot etc. And he gets up in the night, every night, to go outside, which gets old. But now that he's been and has now gone, I miss having some other being rattling round this house with me. It's nice having some other being come in and check on you every once in a while. Now it is noticeably quiet whereas before, I didn't notice it as much.
So now I don't know whether I want a doggie of my own or not.
