Hi All! I haven't posted in awhile, but wanted to give an update with Zoe. We are having our ups and downs with her. One of the things that I haven't yet learned what to do is regarding the fact that she cries and whines all the time. We leave her in a room in our house because we do not trust she won't chew everything in sight. It's a large room, totally enclosed with windows where can see the woods behind her. She has a couple places to lay, a carpet, her crate and even a tv. Kind of spoiled, huh? Anyways, I hang out and play with her in the there every day. But, there are times I am home and cannot hang out with her and if she sees or hears me, she cries and cries and cries. This doesn't happen when my mom and sister are home (and I'm out). I am assuming she has some sort of abandonment issues (we got her when she was 8 months old - she's 13 months now), but I don't know what to do about this!!! It breaks my heart and is also really annoying. Is there a way we can train her in the house? I bring her on the leash sometimes but it is really difficult because she tries to get out of her leash & harness (which she has successfuly dont on many occasions while my mom and sister walk her...that's a whole other post!!) so that's totally annoying too. HELP!! Please!!
