Yikes, I must be a mean dog mommy, because although I love my "velcro dog" like mad, sometimes she goes to the doggie hotel. I mean, I love my DH too but he has to go to work even though it sucks, and he has to see me in pain even though that's traumatizing for him. I can't prevent any and all occasions of discomfort or anxiety; it's too big a responsibility!
That said, I also will not send the furry baby to her hotel while I'm in labor, mainly because I can't count on being able to do so if things pick up in the middle of the night. Instead I'll plan for my mother, ILs, and DH to split the burden. Sweet pup will hate being alone, but it's not like I'll be at Disneyworld myself. We will both have to suffer a little! She'll forget my absence quickly once I'm home with her for six weeks, albeit with a baby in tow.
