Thank you everyone for your posts regarding Nacho on the road and your reassurances about leaving Nacho in April. Thought I'd start an new thread with new news!
I have an update....
I rang my partner (tom) last night (he works away during the week) and he suggested that Nacho goes to his families home in Bristol when we are away. His parents are coming on the trip with us but his brother and his girlfriend will be looking after their family dog 'Buddy' the golden retriever over that period anyway. Some of you might remember my photographs from Christmas with Nacho, Buddy and the cat lined up at the water bowl. They completely fell in love with one another and Nacho was so relaxed and happy there. SO.... I don't know why we didn't think of it before but Tom is going to ask his bro whether he will look after Nacho too whilst we are away. A nice enclosed garden, a Buddy , long walks everyday.... ahhh i'm so relieved PLUS it won't upset my dad giving Nacho to my mum (i'm sure that would have created a nice feud) AND I will get to see Nacho straight away when we get back from the hols as I will be staying in Bristol overnight to break up the journey from London to Cornwall. HORRAY! - I just need Gareth to say yes now! Fingers crossed for me everyone!
Wonderful news. It's so stressful isn't it deciding what we are going to do with our furry babies. I have an issue for 4 days in June / July and it's killing me. Hopefully Simon (my boyfriend) comes up with a plan like yours did. x
