So next week we are going to a funeral which requires an overnight stay. We've booked our lovely ddog into the kennels. We've also booked for him to go to the groomers whilst he is there for a spruce up which he loves. We are thinking of it as a spa day for the mutt, (the funeral will be grim. Very dear friend who was only 50) which will make us smile. The dcs say he is spoilt.
