I've got 2 bookends at my dining room table office.
I'm trying not to fuss them or change their routine too much but they are behaving differently.
My old boy follows me everywhere. It's adorable and heartbreaking at the same time. I know I don't have much longer with him. My senior girl who refuses to believe she is senior is being a brat. She barks at everything and everyone. I go somewhere quiet for walks so I can let her off lead to burn off some energy and if we see people she goes up to everyone for a stroke with a big gormless grin on her face, she's so delighted to see other people.
I think I'm the one that's going to suffer from separation anxiety when I (if I) go back to work!
They're loving it. Extra runs with DD, lots of home cooking => offcuts and veg peelings. We've actually had to make a bit of an effort to remind them that they can cope alone for a few hours, but they've been fine when we have done.
The old bloke got a bit demanding a few weeks ago, but we weaned him off it by making it clear that we weren't available 24/7.
