Saturday we had some workers here moving a shitload of boxes to our storage unit. They were pretty noisy and I kept the dogs closed into the living room with me so they weren't underfoot while people tromped up and down the stairs. A few times, directly above us, there were big BOOMS when someone dropped a heavy box on the floor and it startled the hell out of the dogs.

Since Saturday my Boston has been acting all freaky. He usually sits next to me on the couch and naps. He's been all nervous, jumping up and down off the couch and refusing to settle down. I don't know what to do for him and I think there's some feedback going on because I'm worried about him and he can sense my feelings. I tried giving him 1/2 a valium today and it seems to be helping a little bit, but I don't know whether it is just making him sleepy or actually calming him down. You have to understand, he's my baby. I need him. Having him beside me helps keep me calm. Knowing he loves me and needs me is one of my reasons for getting up in the morning, so when anything is wrong with him, I get very wound up. I don't know what else I should do. He's always been a sensitive dog. I know I'm blathering on but I'm just feeling panicky that he won't go back to normal again. I need my Logan. He's my sweetheart. I love him so much. I need to know how to make him feel better.
