Oh how well I can relate to that. :lol2:
We had 5 dogs for a little while and after having sent the 5th one on to her permanent home it was much quieter here. I couldn't believe that one Beagle could cause so much trouble and make so much noise as she did. When she left the other 4 were so quiet I kept feeling like I needed to check to make sure I hadn't forgotten someone or something.
What had really happened though is that when Copper was here with us she was Trouble with a capital T. She would get the others so riled up and then they would all be getting into trouble. Now that she is gone, my pack of 4 seem like the most well behaved Beagles in the world. I guess... one bad Beagle can spoil the whole pack! She is doing much better in her new home where she is the only dog and she is getting 100% of the attention of her 2 owners. And I am doing much better with not worrying so much about what my other 4 are doing and can relax a little again.
Try to rejoice in your day of peace and quiet and simply look forward to everything returning to normal upon Tramp's recovery. We'll keep you both in our thoughts today.
