We've been living in the new house a couple of months now and on the whole we like it very much but there's summat up with the dog. For the last three weeks he has been a colossal pain in the backside.
It began with our little Pal waking us up first thing in the morning (and progressively during the night as well) by diving on one person's chest before running in to the other and repeating the action. He pants as if he's too hot but is usually shivering at the same time like he's cold. He dribbles all over the house. We let him out in the back yard but he's not satisfied.
We've checked with neighbours and none have a female dog in heat that ours perhaps could smell. Besides, he's been neutered.
We've taken to keeping our bedroom doors shut so he can't annoy us in the small hours of the morning so he's taken to shredding the boxes we've yet to unpack or (amazingly for such a titchy dog) jumping up onto the kitchen counters to knock stuff over! In the last couple of days he's taken to doing this whenever we leave the house.
Any ideas, please???
