Yes yes, it’s another fluff post. But I put up a nice big long one this morning! Let me have my fluff.
Remember the ghost Dog Hazel got rid of? I think it might be haunting her. Or else she is just struggling with rainy weather and my being gone a lot lately (3 movies this weekend!). Anyway, she’s been really really sad.
Now, those among you have never intimately known an animal are now thinking I am imagining things. But those of you who have, know that I am not. She is SO SAD. She keeps flattening herself all the way down, that spooky kind of spreadeagled dog way, not the comfy curl way. And she didn’t even come to the door to greet me when I got home last night. And she couldn’t bring herself to get off the couch to go to bed until I had come over and fussed and told her it was all okay for a while. SO SAD. Not sick, she still has her appetite and everything. Just sad.
(Sad like this. I really shouldn’t spend so much time away, not good for doggie! Thank goodness, this weekend I can be home almost the entire two days)
Anyway, my boss had mentioned it would be okay if I brought her in sometimes, so I asked him yesterday if I could take her into the office with me because she is feeling anxious. He said yes, but I don’t know if it really helped. She came in, but this is how she spent most of the day. Cute, yes, but also not very happy and puppy-like.
Here, have a close-up of her sad little face:
(Guess whose face is on the mask on the shelf next to her?)
She is a bit more confident today, has migrated to the little blanket nest I set up for her, but still not exactly “peppy”.
I am sure she will get over it, whatever it is, in a few days. But in the meantime, hey! Band-aid ripped off, I can take Dog Hazel to work with me as needed! That’s great news. And also, how cute is she hiding underneath my desk? So cute!
