Out of the Blue

I mentioned how bad Hudson the wonder dog's allergies have been this season, which got so severe that I took her to the vet this week, who gave her some antihistamines for her itchiness, and antibiotics for the infection she developed from chewing at herself. I decided to adopt a bold strategy for the trip, and left the Gunnar-man behind to make for less hassles in the vet's relatively small office. This made for basically the first time he's been left alone without either myself, MrsBlue, or at least Hudson for company, one of the benefits of him living here in the BlueTower while I work. He was not at all happy at being abandoned: He tried to sneak out with us, threw himself at the door after it closed, and barked wildly as we got in the car. When we returned all of 45 minutes later I was greeted with a big pile of poo in the middle of the floor, and urine puddles in no fewer than four different locations, so he obviously took the opportunity to express his displeasure as best he could. Hudson wasn't happy either, as she was a little whiny on the drive, obviously a little disturbed at the separation as well, even though she was an only dog until she was about five. Them being so inseparable is very touching, but this is not an ideal situation going forward, though it will not be easy to remedy, if that's even possible. On the bright side, the medications have done Hudson a world of good, though her coat around her backside is not going to grow back properly for quite some time.

Here's a link to a video that addresses separation anxiety (there's a bunch more there as well that address it):
