Before you hear the pathetic request from the sniveling little twit Bert, I just had a little educational moment for all you little fourlegged mommies girls and boys, about a good friend of mine.
These (my new species of friends) are called dragonfly's.

In European and early-American myths, children
were told that if they misbehaved, a dragonfly would sew shut their eyes and
ears as they slept. Just thought you might find that interesting. (Especially you Tank)
Allred out now. Here comes Mommas Boy Bert.
Sometimes I find the easiest thing to do when Allred comes into the room, is close my eyes and pray.
Note from My Vickie
Hi everyone, Bert has kindly allowed me to ask for your help. We have a very nice family who are taking in a troubled dog and are asking for any suggestions you can give them regarding separation anxiety.
Here is their note to us:
Do you have any suggestions for separation anxiety and how to correct it or
maybe some of your bloggers/viewers may have some ideas as to how to treat it
best without putting him on medication? I have noticed when he is at our house
with Jazzie and we leave them in the bathroom which is where we leave Jazzie
when we both are away that he is usually just fine and does perform the same
behavior that he does at their house. Maybe with him having a “friend” with him
will fix the situation but in case he starts the behavior at our house I would
like some ideas as to how to break him of it before he destroys our house like
he did theirs. They have tried to crate him and he just digs and chews and
scratches until he is bleeding – he chews on the wire kennel until his mouth is
bleeding trying to get the wire to bend and he has succeeded in bending the
wire. He scratches at the bottom of the kennel until his feet are bleeding and
if left uncrated tears up the wall – chews on the wood and chews the carpet.
Any suggestions would be helpful.
This wonderful family are going to adopt this dog so any ideas you can leave in the comment section or an email to me at jamiesyra(at)msn(dot)com would be most appreciated.
