Mom's leaving again...

Well, this week I'll be working at both Tumacacori National Historical Park and Saguaro National Park. The boys have both begun to suspect something.

What? Your leaving again?

Don't you love us?

Monty especially seems to be taking it hard...

I promise to be good! Please don't leave!

I think he's going to need a hug...


  1. Awwhhhh --- those sure do look like sad faces. Mind you, I look like that every morning that Mumma goes to work. And she's only away for a few hours. ;)

    My Mumma says your mumma must have a cool job if she gets to visit national parks all the time. My mumma might be jealous of that kind of job.:)


  2. OMG, Such sad looks and those eyes, "Please don't Leave"
    We are sure they will be counting the hours.

    Hamish & Sophie

  3. Oh, that's so sad. Hurry home, Sam and Monty's Mom!

  4. Good luck to your mom and you two have fun!
    Don't be sad. She will be back soon!
    Take care
    Kisses and hugs

  5. They both really do look concerned. Hope you get to stay for a bit after this trip. And tell Dad that he needs to get another sofa, can't have the boys on the floor:)

  6. Try not to be too sad, I'll bet she'll bring you back some fun toys and treats!!! won't she?? :-)

  7. Look at their precious faces!! They look concerned and sad!! Please mom don't go for too long!!!! Bring back treats! Lots of love, Holly & Mom

  8. Ohw! Those faces say clearly "Don't leave us mom!"
    I do the same with my mom when she leaves me in the house! and also I cry in case.
    But don't be sad! She will be fine! Good luck for your mom!

    Greetings. Pamela

  9. Awww - hope she's home soon! (with treats too, of course!

  10. They definitely don't look happy with you! Have a safe trip and hurry home.

    Your pal, Pip

  11. Dude,s Your looking at this all wrong.

    Guilt.....guilt guilt guilt.

    The looks are great and will most likely leave a deep imprint on your moms mind all the time she's gone.

    Boy you can really get a lot of miles off this when she gets back.

    Ya gotta think outside the box.

    Party time....


  12. Awww..poor Sam, those are precious!

  13. Awww! You poor boys! Pack up and come to Illinois. I'm off for the next four and a half weeks! We can have tons of fun!

  14. OMD, those faces!! The boys have it down to an art. Love the masthead, another masterpiece.

  15. The boys are missing you already. Hurry home!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  16. Well, you have perfected the pathetic, sad faces! Great job at making yourmom feel horribly guilty :)

  17. Oh dear! Sam and Monty to be left alone again? :( Looks like Mom is going to some nice places while you boys stay at home. What's up with that?!!!

    Waggin at ya,

  18. They've got that 'you're not foolin' anybody' look.

  19. Oh dear, look at those pleading eyes! I'm sure your mom is heartbroken too!

  20. Poor Sam and Monty! Hurry home!

    Thor and Jack

  21. Oh, poor you...But don't worry, mum will be back soon.

    And, to cheer you up whilst she's away, George and I are giving you an award! How about that? You can pick it up at our blog :)


  22. Hi, Sam and Monty!

    Thanks for your hello! We're not in our best times, but we're OK.
    Hope all is fine with you all.

    Love, Kimba

  23. Awww, poor puppies!

    It's so hard to leave, isn't it? It's difficult enough to be away from home, but they don't make it any easier on our guilt complexes! I hope the time flies by for you all.

  24. Sorry guys. Dad keeps hiding the suitcases when he has to fly now because he knows how upset we get.

    -Katy & Bailey

  25. Poor puppies. Maybe you can make it up to them later? I'm sure they'll forgive you after that.

  26. Oh Sam don't worry your mom will be back soon!!! Just keep shooting her those sad looks.

  27. It is so horrible that all of our peeps don't get to work from home so they would be here all of the time. The time will pass quickly, friends, why not dig a surprise in the yard as a welcome home greeting? It will help the hours pass more qiuckly.

    We think of you everyday and send positive energy that your area will be spared this fire season. We live in Albuquerque which is a long way off (although we worry about our ranchland in Quemado). We do experience heavy smoke and now raining ash from the fire. Be safe.

  28. I'll hug them both! Poor kiddos - it just breaks your heart to leave them, too! If only you could explain that you'll be right back...

  29. Wish I could dog sit for you!! The boys would be fun to hang out with for sure!

  30. Awwwwwwwww.. such sad faces. Poor guys. Don't worry Sam and Monty.. mommy will be home soon.

  31. You boys have the saddest look and mom hasn't left yet. I'm sure she'll call every night and have tons of treats when she returns.

  32. Awwww...I'm so sorry your mom is leaving, boys. It's awfully hard, I know. But just remember...they always, ALWAYS come back!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  33. both look so forlorn and sad.

    We are sure your mom will be back soon and think what cuddles you will get!

  35. Oh, you guys really know how to work that guilt-inducing look! Well done!! For that, we're your newest followers!!

  36. My mom tried to reach through the computer to give you a hug, Monty!
    Please don't be sad!
    Play bows,

  37. Aw! Such faces! Hugs all around and good trip wishes to mom!

    Sweet hugs,
    Sierra Rose

  38. Oh boys, EXCELLENT job on the guilt trip - those looks could melt anyone :) We hope Mom has a safe trip, she will miss you just as much!

  39. Oh - such saaaad faces. I'd never make it out the door!

  40. Hello from two miss golden retriever in Belgium, nice ens weekwith sun.

  41. Oh dear its not nice when the pack gets separated and you sure can see it on your faces :(
    Have a good week, and I hope mom has a good time and comes back soon

  42. If you need a fitted layering nursing wear piece for colder weather to wear under a regular top or sweater, the Majamas Cozier Cami is a good choice. At the same time, it offers them opportunity to further their studies. In addition, nursing students do not have enough time to prepare their nursing papers. A family birthplace is a bit more intimate than a traditional facility within a hospital or medical center.
