Default Bonding: Impact of being away for a week?

Hi all;

I will be going on a one week vacation in the next few months. I was wondering how Hedgie's deal with the separation? I am working hard on bonding with Julia-Rose and we are making good progress. If I leave for a week, will she forget me Or will she still remember my scent and be comfortable with me when I get back?

You could always leave a few shirts with your scent to remind her

This is a good question! My husband and I are going on our honeymoon soon and it will be the first time we've ever been away from Wimbley for more than a night! Eek! I'm nervous about leaving him for so long (though I'm sure my sister can handle him fine) I'm just nervous!

I left my girl for the first time since she's come to live with me this last weekend, and I was so worried. I was pleasantly surprised when I came home in the afternoon four days later, though! I was talking to my dog as I put my stuff away, and heard some noise from her cage area. Alaska had recognized my voice and come out for some lovin
A friend of mine checked in on her and my dog while I was gone three times a day, and she got a lot of attention from her, I'm sure.
It's shorter than a week (though I leave for a week the 21st so we'll see) but it was definitely better than I expected.
