Midnights been really hyper lately. It’s driving us mad.
We’re having a strange summer here. July was hot humid and rainy and now August is rainy and much much cooler than normal. Since it’s cool we’ve got the doors open. I think it’s driving Midnight crazy – maybe she’s smelling other dogs or other animals because while the door is open she runs around the house whining at us to get outside.
She doesn’t do this all day, but she does do it for a good part of the evening and a bit of the afternoon. She was never like this before so I have to think that maybe the confusion of being in Heat has made her a little wrangy. It’s like she’s been given some of those diet pills that hype you up. She barely naps during the day anymore and just runs around like a nut. Not to mention all the extra gas she’s been having lately!
Have you had a dog that experienced heat? Particularly their first heat? Did the dog act differently than normal – maybe a little more hyper, a little more whiny?
Her hyper behavior is making it really hard for me to work on my sites! I’m taking some courses and trying to participate in the 30 day challenge and it’s really hard to keep up with her wanting my attention all the time.
Over the past week she’s seemed a little bit finicky about her food too. Now that’s unusually as normally when we put out her food she runs over and eats it all up. Over the past week she’ll actually hesitate to eat or stop and leave the room in the middle of her meal. Either somethings wrong with her food or she’s feeling off for some reason. Any ideas?
