Well, It's Happened

On the fourth I did something that scared my human half to death, and this was before the fireworks even started. I heard the garage door open and close while I was in the backyard and I panicked. I thought she had left without saying goodbye so I had to get to her...the only problem is that she was still in the house. Of course, when I realized that I was back to my usual happy self. The only problem was that I was bleeding all over the place because I snapped my tooth off trying to get through an open gate(my humans have a 6 foot wooden fence all around the yard with a separate area in the back fenced off with chain link fencing to keep us from digging everywhere else during the day). I still haven't told my human exactly how I did it, she'll never have more than her theories.

Because of that, when she took me into the vet to have my mouth looked at, she had to ask about anxiety medication. I know she means well because she has already tried just about every natural anxiety remedy out there...I'm just so nervous all of the time that they don't work alone. The vet prescribed me Fluoxetine, which is generic Prozac, I'll start it next week.

After I start, we're going to try desensitization training again. Hopefully this time I won't be too anxious to do it this time. The last time mom tried I hid under her bed after thirty seconds of very low volume thunderstorm sounds and I wouldn't play with her for the next hour, even when she pulled out my favorite toy.

She really didn't want this to happen, but now that it has we're hoping for the best.
