    My husband goes away quite a lot and he left on Thursday for a month. I think Zimba is really missing him. He keeps sneaking upstairs and looking in the bedroom and ensuite, I think he's looking for him. He seems a bit unsettled, not really naughty but a bit like he doesn't know what to do with himself.

    Is there anything I can do to help? Would a piece of husband's clothes in his bed help do you think?

    You could try giving him a t shirt that your husband has been wearing.

    my dogs don't act up when dad goes but they do get somewhat miserable. Dante especially. If dad's gone away for more than like, a day, he'll sit by the front door most of the time and sulk until dad comes back.

    I don't think it bothers mika so much as mikas normally around me most of the time...don't know what he'd be like if i left. When he was a pup it didn't bother him but now a year on...don't know lol.
