When you've gotta go ...

The last couple of times that daughter and Son-in-law have come to visit, it's taken a lot of persuading to get Holly Dog to go back home with them. She reluctantly comes outside to 'wave them off' but when they call her, she rolls over on her back.

Son-in-law tried dragging her: that didn't work. In the end he had to carry her.
George, meanwhile, was quite happy to get in the car and go home with them. I did suggest swapping but Daughter and Son-in-law weren't too keen on that idea. I don't know why.
They think it's because Holly doesn't like the long car journey but we know it's really because she doesn't want to leave George whom she loves (even though she pretends to merely tolerate the young rascal).

I can't imagine why they wouldn't go for an exchange:) My grandkids all want a dog, but after seeing the havoc Sophie has wreaked on my house, both daughters-in-law have given an emphatic no!

Maybe Holly just likes being carried? No, I'm sure it's George's charms...

Every child should have a dog, rose!

Holly is a sweetheart, cherrypie and leslie.

Although George was ready to go instead of her, welshcakes!

Gattina, when he let go she stood up and went and lay on the grass instead!
