Is there a Doggy Psychiatrist out there?
I am at my wits end with my little Molly Girl. She is acting all crazy again. I've written about her unusual behavior here and here
She hasn't been as bad as I had described. NoW,She WILL go outside without Cosmo most days.
(Unless it's very VERY dark and very VERY noisy with crickets)
But now Today she is shaking and hiding. If you pick her up she screams like she is in pain.
I laid her down and gently touched every part of her. Then I checked her pads for a possible thorn. I looked in her ears, her mouth. I even checked that she didn't have a poop stuck to her butt!! I then massaged her more roughly, she didn't scream. We got her to go outside and she just hides under the trampoline and shakes. I don't know what is wrong. I really don't think this warrants an emergency vet visit, unless they have a Psych ward. She did go to the grooomer on Thurs. She was fine when she came home, she was fine yesterday. Could it be that she is itchy where they shaved her belly and that is frightening her??
I've offered her all her favorite words.. ChEEse! GooDIEs! CHiCKen!! SHe didn't once come running. She stayed in her doggy bed and let Cosmo do all the tricks for treats.
I am so worried that she may seriously have some doggy mental disorder. I am now off to crawl under the trampoline, pick up my fat, wacky, cockapoo, and bring her back in the house again. Wish me luck.
