or maybe all the flashes going off
There was a local Wizard of Oz production that had a young yorkie playing Toto. By the second act he was biting the hands of "Dorothy" trying to get away from the lights.
I went backstage and encouraged them to use a toy the rest of the show. I also massaged his ears and gave him some rescue remedy to help calm him down. I could not believe the mother of the girl who owned the dog. It was cruel to expect a puppy to stand through the length of that show with the noise and everything else.
I winced while watching the show and went backstage once again to plead with them to use a toy dog. I told them the dog took too much attention away from the players. I don't know if they listened...but I told them I was a dog therapist and trainer.
I didn't just get havanese, I got a lifestyle!
