I had a little Anxiety episode last night. At first it really didn't seem like much more than a normal evening. But as the evening wore on, I became more and more agitated. I was barking at every little thing and I was chasing Molly every time she came near me. Then I started panting A LOT and couldn't sit still. Everybody was yelling at me to calm down (except Mommy #2 who told them I was anxious for some reason).
Finally Mommy put me on time out for my own good. She said I needed to be away from the action (our house can be kinda loud and crazy sometimes with 6 humans, 1 dog and 1 pug, a cat, and 2 birds) so I could calm down. She took me to our bedroom where my pen and bed are set up. She gave me a hug and left (of course she left the light on for me, too). Then she closed the door. I barked a while because I really was not happy being shut off from everyone like that; PLUS Molly had free reign of the house while I was confined. I gave it up pretty quickly since it was evident that Mommy was NOT going to let me out right away.
Within 10 minutes I quieted down, curled up in my bed, and enjoyed the quiet. It was very relaxing, I have to admit and I found my anxiety fading away. I really cannot tell you what had me so wired up but I am glad it went away. Mommy is wise, like that.
Do you have a special routine that your 'rents have for when you seem anxious and out of sorts?
