Banjo has settled amazingly well in all respects in his new home except when leaving him in the morning (away 8-5 monday to friday)
He will simply refuse to go out easily. We have started feeding him in the morning so we can put it down and run back inside and shut the door before he realises whats going on. But then we see him come to the door and put his little nose under and whine. Then when we get in the car he runs to the fence and whines and does a few barks.
It breaks my heart every morning. I feel so wracked with guilt.
Honestly growing up we always had 1 dog by itsself and it never acted like this when we left. I actually cant even remember friends dogs acting like this...
I am starting to seriously think about bringing in a second dog so he at least has some company through the day (not to mention I would love another).
BUT what if I get another and then they BOTH give me the guilt trip every morning!
and what if it makes banjo even sadder that he has to share his yard and us with another dog?
What do people think? Is it a good idea in this situation or not? advice please!
If so how is the best way for us to go about finding one that will fit in with banjo properly?
