The problem is dear Elka, who is always been a very insecure dog. Lately she seems to be decompensating more, and she is a somewhat difficult dog to live with so this quickly creates a downward spiral where she feels disapproved of gets even unhappier. Anyway, something is "extra wrong" right now, and it might be the stress of her spending so much time around Chaplin, but my question is:
- is there something she can be reassured of to make her more comfortable?
- is there something we can do (besides giving Chaplin to a circus) to help her feel safer?
She might be tapping into the move too and worrying about that ... I'm not sure ... I hate to see her suffering if we can resolve a misunderstanding ... Thank you lovie!!
Hey! I just connected with that sweet soul Elka...I LOVE HER! I want to hug her and smooch her and rub those ears. First and foremost, she is afraid you guys are forgetting about her sister, Zu. She knows that a move is coming up and she is nervous about the changes. She thinks that you'll somehow forget Zu.
She likes Dolly (one of Miss Blake’s kitties) and that she's no nonsense. Chaplin (another of Miss Blake’s kitties) is "snobby" and makes fun of her sometimes - she’s too sensitive and a crybaby according to Chaplin. I told her that maybe Chaps misses "his" dogs....and to give him time and kill him with kindness. She calls Glenn "Papa" and you're Miss Blake.
I asked an angel to keep her company and that the angel was for her to "talk" to when she gets worried or nervous and she said Papa is an angel too! But I told her that this angel was for when Papa wasn't around her or was traveling.
She is such a gentle sensitive pup Blake. She just wants to be told what the plan is, how things are going to happen so she can process it. She feels good health-wise, so I think it's more of an anxiety issue. Maybe pick up some rescue remedy drops for dogs and give her some on a treat when she gets anxious?
Remind her that she is loved, that the family isn't going to be split up, but her pack is just getting bigger! And that no matter what, Papa loves her with all his heart. If you're going to go out to meditate or do some earthing, take her with you. It will be good for you guys to bond more too. Such a sweet soul, it makes me teary eyed!
I sent healing and peace from her beautiful schnoz all the way to the tip of her tail. What an honor to talk to her. I told her that we're always connected now and to just reach out if she needs me. I'll check in with Chaps in a bit and tell him to stop being a jerk to her. And Abby pup helped - if Elka needs a doggie ear, just tell her to reach out to Abbsters!
