“I am lucky to have such understanding neighbors.
I received a note under my door the first time I left her alone saying, your dog has been barking and crying the entire time you were gone. It was so sad, the next time you leave, please just drop her off with us.
We leave her with the family next door, but I don’t want to take advantage of them.
I have been considering bark busters, but am trying to leave her alone for short intervals of time and build up to longer periods.
Twiggy has become the emphasis of our lives.
We are devoted to her and she is semi-devoted to us.”
