Cooper loves coming to work, but has been facing some anxiety lately.
I hope you are all enjoying your summer. Mine is going ok. I’ve never really minded not having the gift of speech. For the most part, I think it’s a gift not having to always worry about what to say. Over the last few days, I’ve not felt this way. Usually my mom can read me like a book. She understands me in a way that is not usual for most humans. I’ve thrown her a curve ball this week and she is baffled as to how to help me.
Earlier this week something spooked me outside at work, now I am absolutely terrified to go outside. This poses a problem when you really have to go to the bathroom. My mom has tried to comfort me and tell me that there is nothing to be afraid of, but I just know that there is. I am so scared, I start trembling in the car on our way to work.
This is a huge problem. You all know how much I LOVE to come to work. I’m fine inside the office and have no problems, but the outside is a whole different situation. I now feel the same way about everything outside as I do those Big Blue Monsters that show up at least once a week.
Oh, how I wish I could talk and tell mom what is wrong. She just doesn’t understand and I can’t seem to make her understand why I am so afraid to go outside at work. I know she wishes I could tell her what is wrong as well. I know how much it worries her when I am afraid of something.
We are going to try and keep working through it because I do really, really LOVE to come to work.
Do you ever wish that you could talk to your human?
