I got that call!

Well, son finally called. Actually, he called while I was still at working. I worked some minor overtime last night. Minor compared to 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. with no lunch or breaks on Monday!

The phone message was garbled and barely understandable but he called back later. So now I have an actual address and assurance that all is going well. He's put in three days of FT work already and loves the job.

Our little dog had a rough couple of days getting used to all of the other animals (they have 3 other dogs and a ginnea pig--plus son had brought Ricky the chinchilla there a couple of weeks before he moved). But now she is happy as one of the pack, has her own special doggy friend and loves the piggy, they sleep side by side. Contrast that with being alone all day long until 9 p.m. and having only the two ferrets (who she doesn't like) as companions. It was the right thing to do to let son take her with him when he moved. So I am pleased at how it's all turned out.

I'm so pleased to read you heard from him. Nothing makes us more unsettled than not hearing from our offspring when they're doing something new and exciting. Wish they'd get that into their skulls! lol

And you're right, it obviously sounds like the little dog is having the time of her life...all that socialising. Bet she sleeps well at night now after exhausing herself with so many new friends!

Thats one thing you don't have to worry about any more, you know he is doing well.
Guys have a bad habit opf not phoning, I know I do it to.
Sounds like your son has quite the menagerie over there and I bet the lkittle dog loves having other dogs to play with.

I'm soooo happy for you and the doggy. I bet your son misses you just the same...but wouldn't admit it. You just wait at holiday time...he'll be there for you and you both will have a new found appreciation of each other. You are fortunate!

Yeah. It just takes them awhile when they are that age. They have no concept of time. I'm so glad that you heard from him!

Relief, eh? Sounds like good advice for we guys who are lucky to have our Mom's. For years, I called my parents every Saturday. They always brought up the weather, but I knew they were just making conversation and saying they cared!
