Separation Anxiety

The seasoned dog parents out there are going to laugh but I've been stressing out lately about Palmer's mild case of separation anxiety. I can't seem to find an effective way of leaving him without coming home to a bathroom full of wood or paint chips from him scratching at the door all day. I know its natural but I just feel like a horrible dog mommy when it happens. It must be worse because of the USC loss. I bet Palmer's just as sad as I am that the Trojans couldn't pull through this past Saturday. Good thing I didn't name him 'Booty'. Ugh.

Anyway, about the separation anxiety, I think I need to consult with Mr. Millan or even just Mr. Google. I hope he'll learn soon enough... before he chews up my entire door!

Anyway, funny thing: when Palmer gets wet, his hair texture becomes crimped... circa 1980's. Tiffany and Debbie Gibson would be jealous. You can kinda see the waviness in the pic below.
Enjoy!
