My dog is Making me a Crazy person
Ok, I love her. Tremendously, and will be with her forever. Let's just get that out of the way. I will never abandon/rehome or put her down unnecessarily.
She is a 14-15 year old Jack Russel and for the past several years, but in the past 2 mainly, she licks the floor constantly. She has no medical issues and my vet, whom I think is great, chalks it up to a neurotic ocd behavior.
It wildly grosses me out. I don't know how to stop it or reconcile myself to it. I end up screaming at her ALL the time.
I don't know what to do. She has free rein in the house to go where she wants (she knows which furniture she is allowed to sit on) but recently, I barred her from my bathroom, I couldn't take it anymore and while the 12" high cardboard barricades are unsightly, I am much happier.
I just wish she would stop. She licks everything. She sleeps with my Dad and his floor is gross. She licks his pillow the second he gets up....
