Default Ginger's new behaviour

Recently I was in the hospital - I was very sick before the ambulance came and I think it really affected Ginger. she is very attached to me. Since I am home she is very klingy - she normally just wants to play not snuggle but now she is on me and loving me and kissing me constantly - do you think its because she sensed that I was sick? My poor little girl. lol

Sorry to hear you were so ill, but hope you are feeling better now.
Yes, I think dogs sense when we aren't well and do tend to be more clingy. But what's better than resting with a dog next to you?

Yes, I do. I am recovering from a severe allergic reaction to chemo and my worst days Spookie won't leave me alone. I'd like it more if I felt better, and it's not her usual self. Not really complaining! LOL

I hope you both are on the mend and feeling better. I do think that they are aware of our illnesses and what is going on with us... sometimes better than we are. Remington alerts to low blood sugar with me, and has recently started picking up on other issues... I think that they are more empathetic than any other dog...

Oh my goodness! Here you are so sick you have to go to the hospital and all you can worry about is your Ginger. That is one lucky poodle to have an owner like you.

I hope you are recovering from your stint in the hospital and there are no lating ill effects. You truly are my hero!

Oh, I am sorry, I just finished reading the thread, and of course it was after I already posted a reply.

I do hope they get your chemo regulated so you don't have that happen again. I went through chemo almost two years ago now and they had me so dopped up on Benidril every Thursday that I went home and slept until the next morning.

Sasha acted in a similar way as Ginger. Sasha usually sleeps at the end of the bed but when I would get home from my treatment and crash in bed she would be right up there next to me trying to roll around and play but not quite accomplishing either. She did make me laugh really hard every Thursday. Then she would snuggle right up next to me and wouldn't leave my side.

Since my treatments are over, Sasha now sleeps at the end of the bed again. I think they do know you need support and are trying to help. I know the laughter helped me and even the doctor was suprised at my progress. I told him it was because of Sasha and he told me he would have to recommend a poodle to all his patients.

I think Ginger is trying to let you know she is by your side whether the times are bad or good.

My prayers are with you.

Aw, let me lend my most positive thoughts to both of you too as you go through your ordeal. I think you're very right, poodles (other dogs too) often sense even the slightest change in your health or mood. My pitbull used to come and wag her tail and grin at me when I was feeling frustrated (usually because the house was a mess) and I hadn't even expressed it yet! Also recently I had a tiny medical procedure done, and I could have gone back to work after but I decided to be a baby and stay home instead. My poodles were very sweet to me and kept laying their heads on my lap and giving me a quick kiss whenever my hand ventured near them, and they're not usually ever still that long! So that was nice, and I think they do pick up on every little thing we are feeling.

Yes, I would say that's why Ginger is being so clingy. Did you know that dogs can actually detect illnesses really early on? They are pretty in tune with that's happening in you!

My boy is really young, and on my difficult days he seems to be extra mellow and behaved for me.

Best wishes for both of you.

I've never known an animal more in-tune with human emotions or needs than a dog, and I put poodles at the top of that list. I know Chagall would sit a vigil by anyone of "his pack" who was ill, not even leaving their side to go to the bathroom for 24 hours if need be. This was put to the test when my husband had surgery and was home convalescing. Never have I seen such determined, concerned devotion from one being to another, other than a human mother toward her own child. Feel better all, and take comfort in that provided by your adoring poodles.
