Our dad is going away next week for several months. Mum is looking for some advice on helping us to adjust. When dad is away on short trips, we tend to mope a bit. I will take up a position by the front door when it starts getting dark and not want to move till morning, and Fui runs to the window everytime he hears a car.
Mum has a blanket under the sheet for dad to sleep on and get him smell on, and will keep a couple of his worn shirts. She is going to seal them up, so she can bring one out every few weeks and keep his smell around. She is at a bit of a loss though about what else she can do. If anyone has any experience with this kind of thing, we would love to hear what you did.
Our friends Oscar and Henry had some great Obamicon pictures on their blog, and we just had to try it!
