Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Is this the end?


Katie here.

I just happened to see a picture on daddy’s phone. It was a picture mama sent him from wherever she is.

This is proof mama is cheating on me. I don’t know what to do. Should I disown her? File separation papers?

Or should I beg her to come back to me?

-Your heartbroken Katie-girl

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  2. Oh, Katie! You will always be first in your mother’s heart. And thoughts.


  3. Hey there Katie, I’ll bet mama took a picture of that other Sheltie because she was missing you. ❤

  4. Darn those confounded cell phones! Invariably they prove things like cheating, don’t they, Katie-girl? But even though that’s a good-looking doggo (with gorgeous eyes!), it’s NOT you, and you’ll always be first in your mama’s heart. Give her a bit more time — she’s bound to be missing you as much as you’re missing her. And the weather in between y’all is so wretched that it really wouldn’t be safe for her to try to get home yet.


  5. Ah, poor Katie. I’m sure things are fine, that it was just a random pup that passed by.


  6. Katie… she misses you bunches! It’s the reason why she is looking at other pups! Don’t you worry… she’ll be back before you know it!


  7. Oh, Katie–your mama would never cheat on you. This looks like a youngster (??)–although you would know better than I. Maybe she is thinking of bringing you a little friend so you will have more company when she goes on her (wink wink) business trips? Mama is probably having a miserable time because the weather is pretty darn cold here.


  8. So sweet! Katie, everything will be OK.


  9. ohhhh some Mama is in DEEP doo-doo!!!!!!!

  10. Ahhh, Katie – I have it on good authority that your mama only gave that interloper a few pets, and it did not go further than that. Sometimes when mamas are away from their furry babies, they need a little furry contact to so their hearts can continue to beat and they can continue on with things like breathing and eating. your mama will return to you, and you will always be her main love.


  11. As long as she come home to you it will be okay!


  12. Oh sweet Princess, your Mama would never stray far from you!! She will surely be back from wherever she is soon—she must be suffering serious withdrawal symptoms from being away from you for so long.


  13. Katie, One must learn to share. This is what I told my 14 year old dog 9 months ago when I brought home the first of 3 shelter rescues. He promptly dug a hole in my bed out of resentment. But, now he’s ok and I have a lumpy mattress.


  14. Awww, Katie. I’m sure she’s missing you as much as you are missing her. I wouldn’t worry too much. She’ll come home to you. 🙂


  15. Oh, Princess Katie! I am so sorry that the picture on your daddy’s phone caused you such distress. I think your mama is missing you so much that she had to pat a fellow sheltie to tide her over until she gets home. She misses you terribly. No pup could ever replace you, sweet Katie! Sending you some reassuring pats.
