Well, I went to work today for five hours (I only have two days a week when I am gone 5 hours - it's the most I'm ever gone - Tuesdays and Thursdays). I have a non-carpeted are - also known as the kitchen - which is closed off from the rest of the house. I leave Frankie there. On Tuesday when I left for work, Frankie tore up a whole section of wallpaper. So this time, I got a little smarter, and covered the walls will cardboard boxes I opened up and duck taped in place. When I came home today, it was a bloodbath. Blood all over the floors, the cardboard and there furniture. I rent this place, and as I've mentioned people here are NOT dog friendly. It is imperative that Frankie not destroy things. When I came home I could hear her whining and crying from outside the building. Five. Hours. Later. Her paw was all torn up - there's a loose flap of skin - and blood was everywhere. I checked everywhere for something she might have torn it on, but I can't find a thing. It looks like she got so obsessive about trying to get out that she tore up her foot. I don't know what to do. I am dreading having to leave her alone again, even to go to the store. God help me Tuesday. Please, any advice would be great. I don't know what to do. She clearly has major anxiety about being alone.
