I think a lot of you saw my post about Boo's injured leg. (Cut on right front paw, not deep, but required a few stiches.) His dad and I have re-bandaged it a couple of times, and his boo boo seems to be healing slowly but surely.
But Boo is miserable! :'( He's had no exercise since Saturday morning and is loosing it. Boo usually sleeps in his crate w/ the door open. However, last night, none of us slept. Boo was in our bed, then banging around in his crate, then on the floor, then back in bed "nesting" on my legs, then on Brian's legs....you get the idea. He spent a good portion of the night w/ his lampshade on, but it was so noisy and he was so uncomfortable that I got up in the middle of the night and took it off. (So far, his bandage is still on.)
He's been crying a lot too. :'( Yesterday at 4:30 he started crying at the window for daddy to come home. He cries if I leave any food on the table. He's just as antsy as can be! We've been working on quiet training exercises, but he's still pent up! I think I'll take him for a brief walk today (he's not limping at all) and maybe a car ride (he loves the car) so he can get out of the house.
His physical condition seems to improving right on track (knock wood). But, good thoughts for my poor boy's mental status would be greatly appreciated. :P

Aww, poor boo-boo. ;D
I think some frozen kongs are in order for the "patient".......
Good thoughts for Boo.

Awww, Boo, heal up quickly so you can get back to your regular exercise!
Heal quickly Boo.
He's been getting a lot of kongs and treats the past few days. I think w/o exercise, we've both put on a pound or two. :-[Originally Posted by Baloo317

Poor Boo. Cabin fever is tough. Hopefully a good long car ride (with the window open enough for some good sniffs) will help.

I've learned from some people on this forum that when we're stuck in the house for an extended period or they're not allowed to run, to play hide 'n seek in the house. Sometimes I hide or my husband hides, and sometimes I hide treats or a toy for them to find. This really keeps them busy for a while and you'd be surprised how quickly they tire. Willy likes this better than Libby, she's content to lay around more. He's always got pent up energy, and he gets so excited when he finds the treat.
i was thinking the same. hope he gets better soon.Originally Posted by TobysTrix
you could also try playing some mental games with him, ie hiding treats/kibble for him to sniff out and find to eat.
since we do clicker training, we have a lot of indoor activities we can do, ie cleaning the toys.
