Thanks everyone - I got to come home today. Maggie seemed to not really be very excited to see me at first but then she perked up a bit. I think she isn't quite herself some days so it may have taken her a moment to realize what is going on.

I posted a few pictures from Maggie's birthday. I didn't take as many as I wanted because it was really busy.

She has had a few mishaps this week. Jeff was out of town Saturday and she got up and fell off the bed at 3 am. She cried but I think it just scared her more than hurt her. I couldn't go back to sleep though. Today, a box fell on her(my fault) and she was just kind of dazed. We both have to be more careful - Her luck is gonna run out at some point.

She has also been into everything. She was on a chair today and took a dive off intentionally right into the trash can, headfirst. I have never seen that before from her. She tears into everything on the floor. It is like she is going back to puppyhood in some ways.

Through all of it, her blood sugar has been good. We are going to the beach Labor Day weekend.

Love the pictures Amy. Wish the worries didn't come with the aging process. Sounds like Maggie is part cat - at least in terms of having nine (or more) lives. Hope tonight is more restful for you all.

Default Re: Introducing Maggie

Maggie is wearing me out! She is the most up and down dog and her behavior is so odd. Some days, she is just my sweet old dog gladly sleeping the day away, occasionally getting up to greet people when they come in. Then, the very next day, she is totally agitated - she is up all day grabbing anything she can get her paws on - pulling down shopping bags, tissue paper, boxes, knocking over trash cans and anything in close proximity. If I let her out on the floor, she drags out anything in reach. If I say something like "Noooo Maggie" - she looks up at me and just wags her tail and she keeps on doing whatever she was doing. I think she is bipolar or is this the start of going senile? It was kinda funny at first until I noticed it is not just a sassy dog feeling young again. There is no rhyme or reason to it, no pattern. Should I be worried about neurological problems?

The problem is on days she is into everything, she will go lower throughout the day and end up at an unacceptable level(very low). On the days she just is my lazy low energy girl her blood sugar is perfect. Should I be giving her snacks when she is destroying my store? She unrolled three rolls of ribbon yesterday and got them all tangled and she sat in the middle of it, just as proud as she could be. This is how my other jack russell was his entire life but not her. I think my vet will think I am crazy if I tell him this.

jesse has had neurological problems most of her life . she goes through periods that she is anxious . she maybe up all night running around barking at things in the back yard . then there is other days she sleeps wright through as with maggie there maybe a correlation to blood sugar and how they are feeling and shows up in there behavior .

you maybe wright it does seem to be a clue to blood sugar going lower and you may have to reward not so good behavior with some treats

now if you could find a place with enough space and let her have some things that she can play with and tear up a bit as you know the breed like to do but not letting her get into the store stuff that may keep her happy even though her space has been reduced . it may just be behavioral with her true colors showing .we all treat are pups like glass a bit and dont want to be hard on them and our pups can take advantage of that .

dogs are actually permanent humane toddlers in behavior all there lives and they will test us . they love attention whether that is good or bad

Any... I can only laugh. Not about the potential neurological problems, but Maggie's behaviour. She may be getting back at you for leaving her... just letting you know that she is around, and do not leave her again.!!
