i am training my dog (a Siberian Husky) to be a service dog because i qualify for one. i cant leave the house without having thoughts of horrible things happening to him, and having panic attacks often. he is doing well with his training, i was looking for others who worry about these kinds of things.
it's a coincidence because I went to stay with a good and close friend of mine for two days in the week and she has a Siberian husky who she named max...he is about 6 years old and is very lively and strong...he almost knocked me over when he leaped up @ me!!!
I think it would take me quite some time to get used to having a dog of that breed because they are too lively for me but still nice dogs.
I warmed more to my friend's female greyhound whose name is Katie...she is so cute and i couldn't stop stroking her and she seemed to enjoy it.
and when she looked @ me with those cute eyes i could have cried because she looks so cute and vulnerable all @ the same time.
I hope you will start to feel less worried about your dog grace.
hugs...I am a worrier too...it just seems to be a trait I have from childhood till now.
even while i was @ my friend's house for the 2 days I was always struggling to suppress my anxiety as usual...I can never ever relax grace it is just impossible because for one thing my body is always wracked with trembling from head to toe and my mind is always full of irrational fear and anxiety.
it's no wonder i once was a drug addict and a regular drinker of alcohol and have never really been able to settle down in a job and a relationship.
