Dexter told Delilah that he thinks vacations are overrated. Every year Mom and Dad go away on a long vacation leaving him and Delilah at home with Granny.
Dexter explained that Granny is fantastic and fills up the dry food bowl twice as full as normal and she gives out treats like they grow on trees, but it just isn't the same. He always starts to feel a bit blah while they are away.
Delilah said she understands. She knows Granny is great, but she is still a bit fearful when people come into the house so she has to entice Granny upstairs to get her cuddles.
Dexter suggests that if they smoother Mom and Dad with affection all year, perhaps they won't take a vacation next summer.
Delilah is skeptical, but is willing to give it a try.
