Elevated




Since getting Hera, she has been very very nervous in the car and pants and shakes continuously!

A couple of days ago, she suddenly found a way to be comfortable.  I came out from a store and there she was...lying on a bed of blankets stacked on my folding chair and step stool which is stashed in the back seat on the passenger side of the car.  She was perched comfortably on this pile of belongings and then did not begin to pant till we were driving.

Each time we went out, I would see her on her "throne" when I came out of a store.  Again, she would be very comfortable and not panting until we drove.

Today however, I came out of Camping world store and she waited until I was in my seat and she hopped up onto the soft "throne", while I was watching in the rear view mirror!  She didn't even pant while we were driving!



I'm so relieved that she is finding her comfort zone!  Having her relax more is so wonderful in my mind, since I want her to be happy!

  1. Maybe the newness of it has worn off and she's figured out that it's not a scary thing. Blueberry was never fond of riding in the car, but she knew whatever was at the end of the ride was something she wanted to be a part of, so she'd tough it out. I am really lucky that all four of our current pups are good car riders!

    1. I will especially be glad when she enters the car without being lifted!

  3. I wonder if all the blankets cushion the vibrations of the engine and make her feel safer like a child with a comfort blanket. I'm sure she appreciates all her mum's patience with her :)

  6. I wonder if she feels more secure being surrounded by things that cushion or cradle her. It's interesting to learn about her idiosyncrasies and what you and she do with them.
