Oh Beary, the heartbreaking sound of him howling with sadness as I leave for my first day back in the office since our move, is enough to reduce me to tears.
Luckily our lovely neighbors were outside when Bubba and I left. I was obviously upset by his stress and they were very comforting – reassuring me that all would be okay and Beary would get used to his new home soon enough.
He has a doggie pheromone infuser plugged in, is wearing his anxiety vest, is on (short-term) anxiety meds and I have an anti-barking device. All of those things and he still howled and barked.
What’s a mumma to do? I fought every instinct to turn around and go back inside to cuddle him. I also fought tears. He has to get used to it. He’ll be okay. Eventually. I hope Bella isn’t getting too stressed because Beary is so upset.
Lucky I had Bubba in my arms. Snuggling her gorgeous warm person on the walk to day care was exactly what I needed.
Is it home time yet?
