How much is that doggy in the windw?

Who is that puggy in the window?

That's Lincoln, of course!

Lincoln does not like to be separated from Mom. He has what the vet calls, "separation anxiety." Everyday when Mom leaves us to go to work, Lincoln gets up in the window and watches until she returns. I've tried explaining that Mom always comes back, but Lincoln says that you can never be so sure. Sigh. Hopefully, Lincoln eventually forgets his old life and realizes forever means someone always comes back for you.


  1. Aw, poor Lincoln. Sluggo gets all anxious when Mom leaves too. He's never had an unloved moment in his life though. He is just very neurotic.

  2. Poor Lincoln you poor baby. When mom leaves she totally ignores us and never says goodbye. It works then we don't scream her name

  3. Poor Lincoln. I understand. We get to go to work with hu-mom so we're pretty much around her 24/7. However, when she does get out alone, we carry on like a bunch of hyenas for the welcome back. It's a litle embarrassing....
    Hang in their little buddy, Moms always come back!

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie and Mack ;)

  4. Poor lincoln. Maybe a couple hours of video recordings of Mom, played while she's gone will help him. Who knows, maybe the sound of her voice can soothe him.

  5. Minnie my sister is just like Lincoln. She still doesn't realize mom will always come back. I try to comfort her like you do with Lincoln.


  6. Hi Minnie,
    You are such a good sister. Keep up the good working reassuring Lincoln.


  7. We used to have that. When we were itty bitties, mom had canvas crates for us. That didn't last long because we ripped those things to shreds. Mom got us this DAP, dog appeasing pheromone, diffuser and it keeps us calmer. She keeps it going to make sure everyone feels more comfortable here, with all the foster dogs that come in and out. If you are interested, check out Amazon for the best prices. It doesn't work for all doggies, but really seems to help some. Even helped our friend Lilo who is a puppy mill survivor.

  8. Awwww, poor Lincoln.... we hope it doesn't take too long for him to realize that your mom always comes back.

    Pugs & Kisses,

    Yoda & Brutus

  10. Oh Lincoln! My cousin Jack is just like you, he thinks my Uncle Michael is never coming back too. Minne you should tell Lincoln to enjoy the solitude and take a long hard nap! That's what I do!

    Later friends!

  11. Poor Lincoln, :( I have seperation anxiety too. Its because are humans are just too good to us. Lets be strong together Lincol and overcome this... our mamas will never leave us!
