Bonnie in fear stage?
Hi everyone. Bonnie has for the past week, appeared to be frightened by things that I don't even think of being frightened by. First, she is mostly, an inside dog with 2 other chi's. I have an ankle brace and not able to walk alot. Sunday, she found my pillow (I use on the the braced leg in my recliner) at an angle, and took off with her tail between her legs. Obviously, very scared. I moved the pillow back to next to my chair. She didn't come near this area for the rest of the evening. Last night she discovered a piece of a broken plastic leash (retractable handle broke when I dropped it). She acted like this one inch piece was a bob cat!!!! Absolutely terrified. I picked it up and tried to show her, but she ran away. We have left stuff on the floor for her to 'check out' but she prefers to run to her little carrier and peek out at it! How do I help her.? She is now 8 months old
