Dogs and Trauma…

Strange thing. Since writing about Dickens’ terrible three day illness yesterday, we have received an interesting and sensitive comment from Gabriella (see yesterday’s blog) and two personal responses from friends who have dogs that responded to moving into new homes in exactly the same way.
If you followed my own blogs last week, you must have noticed the emotional toll the process took on me, so why not on our dogs as well?
I wouldn’t have expected anything like that, but having experienced it am both sobered and intrigued by the human and canine psyches. The older we get, the more threatening change becomes.
