Our little dog, 9 month old springer spaniel/lab mix. She has started whinning/crying ALL the time. She constantly has to be by your side touching you. When I walk toward the bedroom she will beat me to the bed. She will sleep right between my legs. Won't even go outside unless you go. She peeks her head out looking for squirrels but doesn't go....unless there is one. It is the whinning and crying that is driving everyone nuts. She goes in and out of every room in the house, over and over. (when difficult child is at school and husband is at work.I think she is looking for them) She won't eat her food. I left it sit for over 24 hours and she doesn't eat it. If I put canned food in and mix it then she eats only what canned food she can pick out. LOL...We had steak the other night. easy child wasn't home so I saved him a good size piece. He fried it up, smelling really yummy yesterday for lunch. Then i needed him to come with me to pick up the car. He put it on a plate on the counter. When we got back a short time later...you got it. Steak juice all over the floor. I thought he was going to kill her. of course I had to hide my laugh. It was a naughty dog. She didn't even know. wagging her tail. Happy to see you. Chloe..she came out with her head down and tail between her legs. But she has never ever even come close to our food. Even if we put it in front of her. She won't even eat her food if we say no. don't think she is even fast enough to get to the kitchen once the meat was on the floor. Anyway..any idea's why puppy is crying all the time? (does not cry when we are at the park or walking or if you are holding her or she is laying up against you.
