do you worry too much about your hav?

does anyone worry as much as i do about my hav? i don't know if it started after his addisions diagnosis but i'm always worried about him, especially when we travel and he's left behind with the amazing dog sitter. any tips to defuse this worry or is it part of owning a dog?

For me it's part of owning a dog. Whenever I'm not with them I worry, just as I do about my children. I think it's just love!

I agree, it's just love. How can you not worry about the love of your life?

I worry about Henry all the time.
does he like living with me?
does he get enough or too much exercise?
does he like the food?
does he get enough sleep? playtime?
etc etc.

I worry about Lola all the time too. Not just when I'm away from her. I worry if she's sick, if I should switch her food, is she scratching too much, is she ok when I leave her alone. I did the same thing with my previous dog who was my first. She had health problems and was sick a lot so I think that makes me worry about Lola getting sick. Sick dogs are the worst, they can't speak to tell you what's wrong and every vet gives you a different diagnosis.

Maybe its just maternal instinct....b/c DH doesn't worry about her at all. He loves her to death, but definitely doesn't obsess like I do. Oy, I'm going to be a wreck when I have kids!

I worry about them all the time. I worry that I don't make them as happy as they have a right to be. I worry about their food and whether it's the best I can give them for their health as they get older. I worry about whether certain little hobo(s) will run away.

I worry because I don't spend as much time with them as I used to. When they were puppies, we were together 24/7, because I would take them to work. Also, I only worked part time. Now that I am full-time, we're not together as much.

I worry about everything. Was that poo a different color than the last one, what does that mean? Are they the happiest they can be? I worry when I'm with them and when I'm not. It is crazy but it is love.

Roscoe is my little baby, I am constantly worrying about him. This morning he didn't wake up before I left for work/school, Tim was still in bed, and I poked Roscoe in his crate to make sure he was still alive because he always wakes up at 7:30 but apparently this morning he decided he wanted to sleep until 10:00!!

Honestly, I worry more about Maddie because she is so far away from me My mom takes great care of her and loves her beyond compare, but she spoils Maddie and so do the neighbours. She has gained about 3 lbs since I moved away and I REALLY don't want her to get ill because of it, especially as she gets older (approaching her 5th birthday). I've tried to convince my mom that she needs to change her diet and exercise her more, but I don't think it happens to the extent it should. Maddie's coat is also not the healthiest, which makes me worry that she is not getting proper nutrition, etc. Unfortunately, as much as I love my mom, she is not someone that really likes to hear when she is wrong, and so she just brushes off my concerns. I told her at Christmas that if Maddie hadn't lost some weight by the next time I came home I was going to confiscate her...last week when I went home she looked like she had lost a little bit but not as much as she should have. So, I'm hoping that next time I go home she will be in better condition. Also, once the summer rolls around I will be able to go home for a longer period of time, in which I can change her diet and exercise regimen. So clearly, I worry about Maddie A LOT!
