Thursday Thirteen

Thursday ThirteenMy dad has been in Canada for the past week and a half and doesn't come home until next Monday. He is there as part of his job as a Liaison/Exchange Officer. Because I miss him, here is:

#19 - 13 Things I Miss About My Dad
  1. I miss waking him up at 05:00 or 05:30 by gently tapping his face with my paw, and then breathing right in his face. Although he ignores me and goes back to sleep until 06:00, I still miss our first moments together in the morning.

  2. Dragonheart and his human dadI miss having him feed me my first serving of stinky goodness at 06:00. Mom is feeding me now, but I still miss dad doing it.

  3. I miss drinking the milk left in the bottom of his cereal bowl when he's finished eating (no, milk doesn't bother my tummy.)

  4. I miss our "guy time" together in the morning while mom is still in bed.

  5. I miss watching him shave in the morning and having him turn on a bit of water in the bathtub so I can play with it.

  6. I miss greeting him when he comes home from work and smelling all the interesting smells on his combat boots and pants. One of the officers my dad works with has a woofie and often brings him into work. So sometimes my dad smells of woofie.

  7. Dragonheart and his dad at ChristmasAlthough I'm not supposed to, I miss playing with the strings that dangle from his uniform when he changes out of it.

  8. I miss sitting on his lap while he is reading or watching TV.

  9. I miss playing with him. Mom is better at playing with the wand toys, but dad is good with the red dot (laser pointer.)

  10. I miss sitting on his chest while he's reading in bed at night, putting myself between his book and his face and demanding head scritches.

  11. I miss his head and chin scritches. Mom scratches these spots for me but it's still not the same.

  12. I miss curling up between dad and mom at night. Even though I usually end up sleeping curled up behind or between mom's legs, I still like to curl up between them while they are reading in bed (after I get my head and chin scritches, of course.)

  13. I miss him! I love my dad and I am very happy that although he's allergic to cats, he's not allergic to Sphynx! He's the best human dad a Sphynx could have.

Oh, I am sorry your dad has to be gone for so long. He sounds like a very wonderful dad, so I can see why you miss him so much. But you should also be very proud of him, because he has a very important job.

Parker said...

I know how you feel dude. But he'll be back before you know it and maybe you will get extra treats out of the deal!

What a devoted boy you are. We really like that second photo. Don't worry, your Dad will be home soon.

Our mom is gone right now, but she will return on Sunday. Your Dad took a VERY long trip, so he might be ready for a long nap with you when he returns.

I guess I need to give the Tall Man some more credit. But he doesn't sound as great as your dad. Obviously your dad loves you very very much.

It's sad that your dad has to go away and you miss him so much, but it's not much longer now, and you will soon see him again. Just think of all the playing and snuggling you have to look forward to.

Vader's daddy is away a lot and I know that Jeff is just as happy to see Vader as Vader is to see his daddy.
