Agree with @elbrant and I'd like to add, when you return be very matter of fact, do not make a big fuss, particularly if she is excited and effusive in her greeting to you. Sure, acknowledge her if you must but don't make any sort of big deal out of it. Go about your business, e.g. if you've been shopping, put your things away before spending any time with her. Your goal is to make your absence just part of a normal routine, nothing to be excited about. I've had two separation anxiety dogs, and you know you have won the battle when the dog just glances at you in an "oh, you're back" way and doesn't bother getting off the couch! Yes, people like it when their dog greets them and makes a big fuss, but if you feed that behaviour you give too much emphasis to your absence and that can grow into anxiety in your dog.
Yeah!!! Jack Is Home!!!

Seriously…be careful of those people...the husband sounds like a complete nut job.
I strongly agree!! That guy isn't wrapped tight.
I am so glad that you have Jack back and I know he is glad to be back with you. Poor little guy probably had no idea why he couldn't be at home!

My niece – the one with the three pits -- has a nutty neighbor who complained that the dogs barked too much at her and scared her "WHEN I WAS TRYING TO CLIMB THE FENCE TO GET INTO YOUR YARD." WTH???????
This woman's husband also had to go to jail........ after shooting at my niece's dh while he was using a weed-whacker in the bushes in their back yard.
The nutjob claimed that he only shot because Mike didn't answer him when he called out and asked what he was doing.

I'm so glad. A house just isn't a home without a basenji, or two, or three.

I hope you've given him a suitable welcome home party
Yay! Glad to hear Jack is home safely and that he didn't seem to suffer any setbacks by being away from home. Be careful until you can get moved. Looking forward to reunion pictures.

Its funny because he is being TOO GOOD lol. Like "PLEASE Mom, DONT send me back to Jail I promise Ill be good!!" LOL. No set back thus far. We went to the Dog Park today, He had a BLAST stretching his legs and He has been SOOO Pampered by his "Mamaw" (my mom is here visiting) and me and Aiden. In fact, He LOVES the attention from his Mamaw a little more than me i think, lol. He even got his toes painted today (we all did…not Aiden tho) Jack was embarrassed at the Dog Park Im sure! LOL. Ill be posting pics VERY soon I Promise!!! THANKS
So glad to hear he is back and doing well. I am also glad that with everything y'all will be moving soon. It's never easy to live with crazy neighbors.
