When Mommy & Daddy are Gone

Dear Jasmine,
When mommy and daddy leave I don’t feel comfortable doing my “business” for anyone else. I get scared that they won’t come back so my scared puppy self uses the bathroom inside. I get in a lot of trouble but I am just a scared puppy. What should i do?  Is this normal?

Sincerely,
Very Scared Pup

Dear Very Scared Pup,

I hate hearing that you are afraid your humans won’t come back. I used to have this problem also which makes me believe it is normal. It took me a long time to realize that my humans will always come back and love me. I have also learned that when they are gone, my going potty outside makes a much more pleasant welcoming when they come home. Mommy and daddy always talk about their “busy lives” which I guess is why they need to leave. I say “busy life, shmisy life” stay home and play frisbee!!!!!!

Happy Waggin’-

Jasmine

I am a three year old German Shepherd from South Georgia.  I don’t really have a favorite toy because my favorite things are sleeping and getting petted on the head. Although if I do get up some energy I will admit that I love getting into the trash to look for napkins.

My brother Teddy is lots of fun to play with, plus he usually takes the blame for my chewing.  I really like him for that!  I love to bark a lot; sometimes my humans do not appreciate that so much.  I am SUPER special because I am a white German Shepherd and that is not so common I hear.
