MIA Lately..

Life has been super stressful lately.. Mr. Southbay and I have come to the conclusion that we will be sending Kingston back east to live with my Parents. After four months of trying to figure out how to help our Little Man...we have come up empty handed..He is suffering from separation anxiety.. We have tried EVERYTHING! Two trainers & meds later. We are having to pack up his stuff..
For the past week I have been taking him to Doggie Day Care over at Petsmart..and he is finally participating and playing with all the other pups! The daycare is helping during the day but he still freaks out in the evening..At least I won't have any neighbors complaining! Here are a couple of pictures! I had to be careful that he didn't see me..

He is the one at the top of the picture...

Do you see him sniffing the dog? I think they are the same mix breed..Yorkie/Maltese!

A random lady went to the glass and Kingston came right up to say hi! Perfect timing right! This PetSmart,  program is wonderful! I totally recommend them to everyone! If I had to board my dog I would feel completely comfortable taking him here!

Oh my, I am going to miss him soo much! I just can't handle one more neighbor coming by and complaining... or coming home to see him entire face and paws saturated from panting all day.. I am so grateful for my Parents for taking him! Our plan is to move back east as soon as possible..Mr. Southbay has been searching for jobs ...applying but nothing yet! This economy is not helping!

On a positive note, all things happen for a reason. I will miss my Kingston so much! Words can not even begin to describe how it will feel coming home to an empty house everyday.. but I know he will have a huge backyard and a friend (Eli Mae) to hang out with all day. Kingston is leaving us the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. We are using PetAirways. I will be unsettled till I hear from my Parents saying they have him in their arms! 

Here is a picture of Eli Mae and Kingston on our wedding weekend! 
They were buddies then...they will be buddies again!

I am soo glad we are flying home over New Years! We will get to spend the entire week with King! My Parents said we will have to Skype in the evening :) 

Okay, deep breath.....exhale.....


  1. awww i am so sorry to hear about that! but you are doing whats best for k and that is all that matters!!!

  2. Awww soo sorry to hear that he hasn't been getting any better. I'm sure this is one of the hardest things you'll ever do, but it will be good for him in the end. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you guys to be able to move asap.

  3. :( I can't even imagine how sad you must be to not have your LiL Man be there when you come home but what a blessing it is to know he'll be in good hands and has a buddy to play with. You and the hubby are such good m0mma and p0ppa because as hard as it is to be away from him, you're doing what's best for your fur baby :)

  4. Aw sweetie this makes me so sad. I am sad for you! My heart would be breaking too but you're such a better mommy for giving him what he deserves.. you're definitely doing the right thing! He'll have a playmate and your parents! Hang in there.. and I'll be praying for your hubby. Hopefully a job will open up soon!
