Can you all think good “Please, for the love of god, don’t start with the nonstop barking again” thoughts in Buster’s direction?

He’s not used to being home without Sophie — I generally take him when she goes to the vet because I’m trying to teach him that sometimes it’s a place where he gets treats and nobody does bad things to him. But I didn’t take him when I took her earlier this afternoon, and he barked and howled the entire time we were gone.

So now I’m terrified he’s going to start this up again when I go to work tomorrow. Sophie will be here, so hopefully it’ll be OK, but I don’t know. And of course daycare is way more expensive down here, and my rent is much more so I really can’t afford it, and Jesus, I’m seriously almost in tears.

We worked so hard and so long — and I spent so much money — to get them both to a good place. I don’t know what the fuck I’m going to do if all that is wiped out.
