What's Up With Zippy?
This past week my dog, Zippy, has been driving my entire family crazy. She has been following us around and whining. She usually only does this when she is in heat or having a false pregnancy, both of which she is not. She has become very needy and demanding of our attention. How does she do this you ask? She will stand in front of you if you are sitting, standing or walking and stare at you while giving us her "puppy dog" look. If that doesn't work she whines.
I have been busy with my writing and seeking employment, as well as my husband and daughter. So, all this whining and neediness could be a result from a lack of attention to the "princess". When my sons gets home from work she runs to them and employs her pitiful behavior on him. As you can see from the picture above, they are suckers for her.
I am now in search of some doggie psychologist to help me figure out how to deal with this spoiled dog. I have completely made a mess of this dog and have to fix it before we all go crazy and I find a job outside the home. Any suggestions are appreciated. I guess I just need to put a sign on my door that says, slave to needy dog .
