Minnie Moo because she's a Minnie the moocher
Last night I put her to bed in the kitchen and went upstairs. As soon as my head hit the pillow, it started, a low whine that steadily grew in intensity until it became a full blown howl. My instinct was to go downstairs immediately and comfort her but experience has taught me differently.... If I give in - I lose big time I knew that she was absolutely fine so we just ignored her and after about ten minutes she stopped.
This morning I left her in the kitchen (with the doors closed) and she howled again so I just waited until she stopped and then went back in and ignored her for a while. I feel really mean doing this but I think I'm doing it right???
She is now asleep on the sofa in the lounge all by herself so she must be feeling a bit more secure. Beauty, the next door neighbours dog was introduced to her this morning and she didn't so much as bat an eyelid so we are thrilled with her progress so far. She even did a poo in the garden for me this morning
