I need some help with poor Gretchen
She is really having a hard time with her sister gone. Saturday I was judging at a competition, and friends came to take her for a walk in the middle of the day, but when I came home she had gotten the door off her cage. I put the parts aside and set up the other cage (Sasha's). Washed the blankies etc.
Then yesterday I was away for about 7 hours (not unusual for a work day) and she got the door of the other cage almost off.
I had taken her for a long walk before leaving.
So, I have to go to Rochester for the weekend and I have her dogsitting all set up so she isn't alone much, but it still requires both cages, one here and one at her "foster family". So just now I was in the basement rigging up the loose door with those metal clips, and she was at the top of the stairs, crying. You know, the whiny crying in her throat. I never heard her do that before. It breaks my heart.
Any ideas - other than getting a new dog?
