... a dog who suffers from severe separation anxiety. To solve the problem she has tried all sorts of medications and lotions. However, she decided to try one last thing--she got a stuffed dummy, dressed it her her clothes and sat it in the bathroom. She never lets the dog see her and dummy together, and so far it's working. This picture is both sad and hysterical at the same time, but it seems to be working. She came home the other day, and found her precious pet sleeping at the foot of the dummy and not stressing and tearing up the house. Whatever works!

Love and commitment in action.  If it works  . . . . . 

 

Reminds me of a story I saw about dementia patients being given dolls.  It relaxes them and makes them content, cuddling and singing to the dolls.    

 

I follow a wonderful organisation in Victoria called Edgar’s Mission (farm rescue) and they have huge teddies and other stuffed toys/animals in the pens and you’ll see pix of all the little animals clustered around snuggling up to these.

I ran into a couple at a dog show that put their dog (with separation anxiety) in the car, in the garage, when they went out (they had 2 cars).  She immediately went to sleep and was still there when they came home!
