I HAD to work at the office today, usually can work from home!
So, puppy was given a good play in the garden, breakfast and left at 8.30am with toys and chews (bullysticks). Arrived home at 11am (it's a 20 minute drive and I got stuck in traffic). Puppy asleep but had clearly been awake as his chews were in his bed, chewed!
I know this is a small thing but leaving him was my main worry, I have no idea why I was getting stressed about it to be honest.
