You know the saying about best laid plans…something always happens to get in the way. That was the end of my week. Our Internet/etc. (Uverse) went down early yesterday morning and was out ALL.DAY. So, I worked a little on my phone, and went to Starbucks to work more, but things just were NOT going my way yesterday, no matter how hard I tried, so I couldn’t get my book review of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up finished in time to publish yesterday. I’m working on it for today, but I’m wary of making any more plans…for fear I’ll jinx it, so, it’ll be ready when it’s ready!
We’re also having a bit of an issue with Dagny that sort of came to a head yesterday and is causing me a great deal of stress and sorrow: she’s incredibly anxious. She has had a few smaller anxiety issues since we got her (noises outside, the car, etc.), but she got over those pretty quickly, and they weren’t nearly as severe as what she’s going through now.
It all started with the smoke alarm going off inside. She wasn’t really moved by it at first, but then we left to go to Austin, we boarded her, brought her home after two days, and she was immediately on edge. She wouldn’t relax, started shaking continuously, wouldn’t play, sought sanctuary upstairs in my step-son’s bedroom. Basically, I felt like I brought home a different dog.
This has been several weeks. She has her moments where she’s “okay” – not back to normal, by any means, but she plays a little, will be downstairs with us, and she’s started to be comfortable eating in her usual place again. But then yesterday, when the cable went out, she heard the noises that came from the box and absolutely FREAKED out again. And was basically inconsolable all day. Whining a lot, just very very sad. Which makes me very very sad.
We took her to the vet to discuss options and she gave her a natural “milk whey” pill to take that she says will help. Other than that, there’s prozac, but I really really don’t want to put her on prozac!! I’m going to try a thundershirt, I’ve tried rescue remedy for dogs, we crate her periodically to make her feel like she has a “den.” We’re trying everything, and she seems to make some progress, then regress again.
Anyway, I wonder if anyone has had any experience with an extremely anxious dog? Have you had any success with natural remedies? Or tried prozac? Thanks for any advice you can give us! We love her so much, and hate to see her in such distress…
(our sweet girl!!)
So…that was my day yesterday. It was pretty emotionally draining! And on top of that, I got a migraine last night. Yeah.
But I got up for the 6AM Pure Barre class this morning, and while I barely made it through (that early is TOUGH!!), I feel great now, and ready for the day today. Here’s to a more “calm” Friday!!!
Have a wonderful day, and happy valentine’s day tomorrow 🙂 I love you all!!! thank you so much for spending time with me here every day!
