Daisy is my sweet Basset Hound/Beagle mix that was in love with Buford. When they met they bonded immediately and neither of them ever let Max into their little click. When Buford died back in February Daisy began crying and howl each night whenever I would go to bed. Last night was the worst ever.
Caleb spent the night with me and when we went to bed she barked/howled/cried for over 30 minutes. Usually it only lasts about 5 minutes. I had spoken to my daughter the other day about Daisy’s behavior and she suggested giving Daisy some extra attention and exercise. So tonight Caleb and I took her to the park and walked her over 2 miles. We kept her there for almost 90 minutes. We let her play in the enclosed dog park area. She sniffed everything and Caleb got her to run through tunnels and tires. She seems very tired now. I hope it helps her to sleep better at night. I am willing to take her with me running if it helps her to stop mourning the loss of Buford.
I have to admit that it probably isn’t entirely losing Buford although he was her first true love. Buford just happened to die 4 hours after Mike and I decided to divorce and he moved out so she lost 2 of her loves in the same day. Please pray that we can find a way to help her move on and ease her pain. Caleb says he is prepared to take her to the park as often as necessary too. 🙂
