I have 2 dogs, one of who I love so much! He is my baby. I have lots of opportunitys to live away from home due to the nature of my work (I am a nanny) but I never take them because I am frightened of leaving the dog behind, and when I get back he might be dead because he is 13 yrs old. Is this silly? Should I just take the chance to live away and get over it?
