The dog always sulks when I'm not there, although he is always pleased to see any family member who has been away and in fact any stranger will do as long as he gets an extra bit of petting.
But I can't go anywhere without my shadow. Even when you think he's asleep and no matter how quietly I try to move, if there is an inkling that I'm going indoors or outdoors or even leaving the room, he's up and ready to follow me. As a result I seem to spend my entire time tripping over him.
