remember how i posted about our dog barking throughout the day and stuff? and how we wouldn't know she was barking all day because... we're not home?!?! well we tried everything. shock collar, bark collar, music, stuff to mellow her out in her water, etc... NOTHING works. it's because we think she has severe seperation anxiety. she tore through the sheetrock in the garage. she will tear apart the plywood at the fence. she is crazy. and barking still. not all day long anymore, but i guess randomly throughout the day for periods of time.
our neighbors call animal control every.single.morning. we know the animal control people by name. they are really nice and understanding. they're in a tough spot because they are just trying to do their job. but they also know that we're trying to fix tacoma. we're trying everything to get her to be comfortable while we're gone.
okay, so not only have our neighbors been calling animal control daily- they also started calling the police. really. and, on top of all of that- they are THROWING THINGS INTO OUR YARD!!!! the assholes are throwing pears, eggs and rocks at our dog to get her to shut up. how lovely, right? i'm sure throwing things at a dog that is freaking out will definitely make it more comfortable.
i'm sorry.. but how the fuck old are you? who throws eggs at people's homes? oh yeah, immature losers with no jobs who don't own the house they're living in. assholes.
so anyway.. for now- she is staying in our house. so there are days when we come home to shit and piss on the carpet. and days we don't. cool.
advice on seperation anxiety in pets anyone? advice on dickwad neighbors? :)
