I have a problem: I don't want to be by myself. I am a social girl. I love being around people - day and night. My humans see that differently. Whenever they want to be let alone, they put me in the kitchen - with plywood walls in front of the door frames so that I cannot get out. I can still see them, but no matter how hard I try, I cannot get out. I call that solitary confinement - they call it "time out" for bad behavior. Same thing with my crate: They put me in at night and there I am - by myself, nobody to play with, nobody to bite, not a soul to cuddle up to. My new strategy? Crying. I heard it works for a lot of human girls so I gave it a try. As soon as I am being left alone, I start crying. Heartbreaking and sad. Takes about two seconds for the humans to show up and talk to me or even let me out. I have heard the word "separation anxiety" a lot. That's what they think I have. Whatever works for them. The crying works for me. And if I end up in puppy school for this "bad behaviour" - just fine with me. Maybe I can meet some pups to hang out with! See you next time.
