Is Your Dog Suffering from Separation Anxiety?

Separation Anxiety in Dogs or "What'll I Do Without You"!?!
by Francine Moniz
                                            
Separation anxiety is the name used to describe certain behaviors exhibited by dogs who become excessively anxious when separated from the company of their owners.

The manifestations of separation anxiety rage from mild to severe. In some cases, the dog may whine for several minutes after being left alone and then settle down to await the return of his person. In more extreme cases, the dog may case serious destruction of property by chewing or scratching wooden door frames and doors. The dog may cause himself harm by jumping through a window or climbing or digging into a dangerous situation.

Editor's Corner
Avid readers will realize there was no Summer 1999 issue--welcome to the reality of working full time and volunteering "full time" in rescue. 

For this reason, we are now seeking a NEWSLETTER EDITOR who will spend an hour or two per quarter (or more if you choose) selecting, soliciting or composing the lead story and perhaps uploading a picture or two.  No special web page knowledge needed--it's a simple drop-and-drag editing program.  Contact Diane for more details. 

Please feel free to submit ideas or articles to me at goldengaterescue(@)sbcglobal.net.      ~~     your editor, Diane
