I'm a "single parent" this weekend.My wife, Misty, is heading out of town for a family event and I have a couple of work events that I need to stay back for.  Most people are probably saying, "so what Steele...you have a dog...what's  the big deal?"  True.  But our dog, Chilli, is the ultimate "Mama's boy."

What that means is from the moment Misty walks out the door with her bags, I will hear plenty of deep sighs.  I'll watch a 90lb bulldog literally sulk slowly walking around the house all weekend (see above picture.)  There's also a pretty good chance he won't eat while she is gone either.  Then, upon her return on Sunday it's like nothing was ever wrong.  Such a prima donna...but I love him.
