I have to keep Rita closed up in the back half of the house since she doesn't like strange men in the house (neither do I; and even if she did like them, they're constantly coming and going out to their trucks and leaving the door open, so either way - she's on lock-down).
She's mostly okay, but when she hears them talking too loud (or whistling - she HATES whistling for some reason!), she gets upset and starts barking.
A little shot of spray-cheese is just the thing to take the edge off and put her in a much calmer mood!
Now, for Rita, her go-to anxiety-reducing food is cheese (okay, it's not really cheese - it's some sort of "cheese flavor" substance... the stuff you spray into a Kong); for me it's chocolate!
The hubs bought me something truly dangerous for Christmas... Cadbury Crunchie Spread!
Have you ever had a Cadbury Crunchie? It's a British candy bar that I first discovered when we lived in Bermuda - chocolate wrapped around a honeycomb/toffee center. I used to only be able to have them when the hubs would go to the UK for work and he'd bring me back a bag (or three) of the small-size bars. But now you can get this stuff on Amazon! Dangerous.
But, hey, if I spread it on an apple, it's healthy, right?
Our weather - which has been rainstorm after rainstorm this past week - is supposed to change for the better starting tomorrow, so hopefully we'll go back to anxiety reduction via running/long walks!
If not, we're both going to weigh twice as much by the end of this kitchen renovation!
Are you a stress-eater? If so, what's your go-to?
