Yeah, so where does the time go? I don't know. Here it is, Labor Day weekend. Wow. That sure came up fast. Next thing you know, christmas. Well since July 4 we've been dealing with separation anxiety. We're using Lavender oil, DAP collar, and occasionally, Xanax. Yesterday she was alone for 4.5 hours. I don't think the Xanax even touched her until about an hour after we were home. Next time, I'm thinking that I'll take the Xanax and just put her in her Thundershirt. She wore it all morning today, and we left her with a sitter while we went to the farmer's market. No Xanax. She did OK. Heavy breathing and panting, but no drooling. Took her about 20 min to calm down after we came back to her. If you have no interest in dog behavior or seperation anxiety, or thunder anxiety, you probably won't want to come back here much. It's an interesting topic to research. I'd prefer that my interest were strickly academic. OH well.
