Help! Dogs aren't acting normal!
My dog Diesel isn't acting normal! Poob isn't either, and I'm starting to worry! These animals are honestly my babies, and it sucks seeing them go through this. So, basically my parents are getting a divorce, lots of drama obviously. Well, dad unfortunately got temporary custody (not going into why I don't want to stay with him, totally off topic) and mom had to leave. She's staying at grandmas, and grandma is our neighbor. Poob has been a wreck lately, poor thing has been a little shaking mess, and Diesel is worse than I thought. At first, I thought just Poob was affected, but now it's becoming obvious that Diesel is. Poob will run down to grandmas any chance she gets and try and bring mom home(and me when I'm down there), which is fine because she's used to it. Sad, but fine. Well, now Diesel won't eat when I'm gone. Sometimes a little, but not a lot. And now dad put me back in public school too, so I don't see him as much. And he will also shoot down to grandmas any chance he gets to bring us home...Which is not so good. For some reason, now he's started killing cats (they're strays, but I still don't like him doing that), or running under the house and barking non-stop! (The under the house door is closed now so he can't go under anymore) He's never acted like this before! He's never attempted to hurt cats, never ran under the house and refused to come out, none of that! And he still doesn't hurt our cats, just the strays. His back legs have been getting worse, and I'm really worried about that too. He basically clings to my legs and whines every time I leave, and I feel horrible! I would do anything for my babies, but I'm not going to limit the time I have with mom. I try to spend as much time with them as possible.
Help! I want my babies to be ok again!
