Changes are really HARD!! That's what I'm finding out. This separation stuff is for the birds!! My sleeping at night was fine before, I was sleeeping in their room, in the kennel, dark and quiet and not a peep outta me, but Mike thought that I should have my own room well.....not so good last night. When Mom came screaming at me for still barking at 3:00 am. I didn't make a peep after that. She scared the beezeebies outta me!! But she was soooo mad and wound up that after I got quiet she couldn't get to sleep, so needless to say I am back in my old spot which was working perfectly fine. I am back in their room and she doesn't care what Mr. Mike says cuz he wasn't up at 3:00 am!! Plus she likes having me closeby and so do I.
We are focusing on the barking when they leave, barking like a mad man outside, submission, and just basic manners. It all went good this morning. She made me stop my barking like crazy outside which she said is so easy, she didn't know why she didn't figure this out with Miss Bossy pants Jazzi. So I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks. But it sure wears a guy put!!!
