But after looking for a while I went back to getting my clothes to pack and brought them to the open suitcase on the sofa where I always pack and there he was, in the suitcase, ready to go!
I think that it is so interesting how intuitive dogs are. They sense energies and they know expressions and a few words - like "car ride", "walkie-walkie" and "breakfast". And they know people - those who have positive energy and those who don't. They can even sense illnesses like cancer and they know when things aren't right. They are special messengers sent here to be our life companions and we need to treat them with the love they deserve.
I love Gumby (and his companion Nunzi) very much but, in this case, I could not take him and he was left at home. He will be sad, but only temporarily because he will have lots of love while I am gone. And he will be there when I get home, jumping up and down, running in circles and shaking his toy around to let me know that he's happy that I found my way back once again!
