:hug: I can understand where you're coming from. It only took me about 30 years or so to get to the point where I can leave the Hoolings for more than an hour or two without getting upset!!! They have always done better than me when it comes to separation anxiety!!!
I can understand! I too am going through the same thing with Onyx. Only because I'm home bound until September. I'm on disability and when I return to work its going to be ****. I go to doctor visits and can't wait to get home to my dawg!!!
It's so nice to have support from you all!! I feel I've come full circle. When I was not a mother yet my dog was king, when I became a mother 25 years ago my dog became a prince as my children were kings, but now that both children are all grown up and on their own my dog has stepped back into role as king.
Okay now I don't feel so bad about my attachment to my dog.
When he was about 1.5 years old I went to Hawaii and was home sick because I wanted to go back to my dog -- pitiful. LOL I actually cried before I left and then cried when I got into the hotel, and just wanted to go home to my boy....who does that when they're in Hawaii, of all places?! LOL The trip was still fun, but man was I happy when I got home to my dog!!
Now I've been in Texas without him for 10 days so far (granted I get to see him on Thursday/Friday) but then I'm back out here for two more weeks. I'm doing okay with this one though because it was my decision to leave him in Florida so he could bond with the puppy rather than letting her take over the household -- which is what she would do if it were just my parents watching her (haha).
I'm sad that he is not out here with me, but when I talk to my mom and she tells me that he's helping train the puppy (apparently he nudged and growled at her when she put her feet up on the couch and she got right down...no dogs on couches in my house) it makes me feel good and that I made the right decision...plus I know that I'll be home soon enough!!!
The breeder said they are full breed and showed me the mom on site and showed me their father on his phone (only a head picture) . First time owning this breed but with all the research I've done I think their tail is kind of short to be full blood. I'm posting the mom and dad too maybe they are...
Hi everyone I am new to this group just joined a few minutes ago...I am 20 and have good news!!!!I have decided to adopt my first German Shepherd from a shelter in about fall 2021...When I have more time 😄😄I cant wait to give a future dog a new home 😀😀Gkad to be here
so i am getting a 9 week old german shepherd puppy here in two weeks. I've been hearing from a bunch of people that you can train them to deal with a invisible fence and there are others that say you can not train them with that and need a fenced in yard. Heres my dilemma i have plenty of land...
I ask this because one of my main reasons for wanting a GSD is there intelligence. Thats why i was wondering if my luck in choosing a puppy could it be possible to get a pup that can't comprehend basic commands.
I have Labs, but a neighbor has 2 GSD’s that are kept outside. They have a very small pen and access to an outbuilding that is not heated. Even in fair weather one of the dogs has a mournful cry. Sometimes it keeps neighbors awake and most think the dog is injured or has other health issues. I...
