Yes, thankfully the brats, um children are in school. Too bad they can't take their big dog with them.

Mike showed up last night but wouldn't come near me. He hid under the lilac bush and wouldn't even look at the plate of food I pushed under for him. I tossed some cooked chicken breast under there too. He ignored it. He was under so far, I couldn't reach him.

He hasn't been here this morning. I checked the lilac bush and the bushes all around and there is no sign of him. I just have a bad feeling about this. He hasn't eaten since Sunday Morning. That was the last time he ate well. Unless he is eating some where else. I don't think he is doing that though. He just looks like he doesn't care any more. I can't explain it.
