so i have sort of an odd question and livejournal seemed the right place to have it answered! not sure of your rules in this community so feel free to delete if im out of line here. it is dog related though :)
my mother has a 9 year old female chocolate lab. she just recently moved in with her boyfriend - the dog (brandy) has been to this house and stayed in it many times. theyve been together for over 7 years.
the only thing is that this new apartment has a pellet stove. everytime the heat kicks on and the pellets are fed into the stove brandy gets a little anxious. she pants, paces, and shakes. this is very unsual behavior for brandy. shes a very quiet lazy old dog. so her sudden nervous energy is a little odd.
i guess i was wondering if any of you have had any similar problems with your dogs and what you did to make the dog more comfortable.
any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
