Rye, my husband and I all miss Amber very much. Rye has never been ok with being left alone for long and now is no exception. I left him home alone a few times and tried bringing him to work with me a few times this week and neither option is agreeable to him. At work he is in a kennel by himself except for when I can take him outside. He yelps, he pants, he drools, he howls. I ended up putting our doctor's dog in his kennel with him and that helped calm him down a lot. When I left him home he was very panicky when we got home from work, panting, yelping, drooling, very happy to see us. He follows us around the house a lot, looking at us.
So we called rent-a-Vizsla! That would be the Vizsla rescue of Idaho lady. I am going over to her house tonight to pick up one of her dogs for temporary company for Rye. I think it will help. I'm sure he is missing Amber specifically but I also know that he doesn't really care which dog it is, just company in some form.
We talked about getting another dog but I just don't want to. Maybe I will eventually but not now.
I am very sad and just cannot believe she is gone. I only had her for 8 years but it feels like I have known her forever.
This was two summers ago, at a place called the birds of prey area.
