Long story short. Our son just got married this past Saturday and our plans for a dogsitter feel through. I boarded Sergeant Major at a local doggie day care called Ruff Housing. I got him a penthouse that got him extra attention and had a webcam so I could see him on my phone. The place is really nice. About 8 hours away from home they called me and said he was extremly distressed with heavy labored breathing and were trying to cool him down. It wasn't from being hot though. It was from me leaving him. I don't leave him much and he is nearly always with me, however I have had this happen on a smaller scale before. I left him to get a bath and nail clip while I got a hair cut and he got sick and had the runs from that and it was only about an hour. Luckily I have great neighbors that have a house key. They picked him up and brought him home, fed him and let him out. He did better at home but still took a few days to get back to normal. So the question is has anyone else had this issue? What can be done to help him chill if we leave him. I like taking him everywhere I can, but somtimes It won't be possible. Here are some random pics of my big baby.
