We had to leave Tessa at home for several hours today while we attended a funeral about an hour away from here. We weren’t gone for an abnormally long time–it was actually shorter than a typical work day.
The Little Girl managed to get herself into a little bit of trouble, though! Although she’s four years old, we still crate her when she’s home alone, since she still can’t be trusted not to get into things she shouldn’t.
When we got home and I went to let her out, I noticed she was all wrapped up her blankets. This isn’t unusual, especially when it’s cold (and boy, is it cold!). But as she tried to come out, I realized she was struggling a little bit. It took me just a few seconds to realize that she had chewed/ripped a big hole in her blanket, then at some point, tried to fit through said hole. She managed to get her head, neck, chest, and one of her front legs through, but then got stuck. She was pitiful! I had to struggle to get it back up over her head to get it off of her. It was funny, though, because she had clearly given up on trying to get herself out and just laid down to relax. Who knows how long she was wrapped up like that!
It actually scares us a little, because now we worry she could hurt herself. But we can’t very well remove the blankets, either, as she loves to be able to burrow and snuggle up with them. Since she’s had four years of crate time without issue, we’re going to chalk this one up to a freak accident, but I’m going to be monitoring the holes in her blankets a lot more closely now!
