Reply to "Dog in Mourning?"

Hi Glenda: I've seen this with the passing of sister-in-law and other loved ones. The little poodle was so sad to watch, and even when my Mom passed - my Dad had a Westie, and a poodle --- both laid around for days. One option we took was putting the guys into a different environment "with children" for a while, and it helped them immensely. My Mom's Westie took to me to hold him almost all the time --- became a lap dog --- and I could tell he was afraid. He would lay at the door of the bathroom peaking under the cracks - and follow me all over. It seemed that when he was put into an environment where there was "lots going on" and not complete silence --- he started getting better. God Bless You --- I've thought of you so often, and pray day you're getting better. Dealing with lots now --- Dad is declining day by day ---- and God has been so good in pulling me up! Hang in there!
Love & Prayers ....... Vickie
