I know my dog misses me. I can see that with my own eyes. What I am wondering is if he'll miss me more when he sees me come home for a short while only to leave again. Let me explain...

I have had my dog for slightly less than 8 years now. Prior to this most recent separation, the longest we had been apart was 6 weeks and this was approximately 6 years ago. Since then I haven't left him for more than a week, possibly 10 days at most. As of today we have been apart for 3 months, and I miss him so much. My whole trip is meant to last about 10 months, but I am considering going home for a visit in a couple of months. I know I want to see him and seeing him will make things easier for me, but will it make things harder for him when I just leave again. If anybody has any thoughts on this, I would really appreciate the feedback. Whether or not I make the trip home is an extremely hard decision to make based on many factors, but he is what I miss more than anything else and is the reason I'm even considering it so seriously.

Thanks.
