Guys gone home

Joey's brother, Bear, and Happy have gone home.
Joe and Bear are from the same litter and Ed owned Happy before he and Amanda were married.
We dogsat for Ed and Amanda while they were in San Diego.
They deplaned about 1 a.m. Friday and arrived at our house about 2 a.m. to pick up the dogs.
Joe wasn't letting the other dogs sleep (he has been the instigator since he was born) so Linda put him in his cage.
Ed and Amanda took the dogs home before we let Joe out of his cage.
He looked everywhere for them.
It was like he was saying, "What are you some freakin' magicians? What did you do with Happy and Bear?"
He looked and sniffed everywhere in the house, even under our bed (as if Labrador Retrievers could get under our bed.)
We kept telling him they went home. He seemed sad at first but the next morning we were back to our ritual.
I split a pack of strawberry Pop-Tarts with him and he got to ride in the car to Terre Haute with me this morning. So, life is back to normal and he seems happy to be the only dog in our family again.
