My whippet was running at the park when another dog bit him without provocation. Now, my guy has stitches in his side, and he is taking pain meds and antibiotics.
He sleeps every night with my wife and I in our bed.
Last night, he plopped himself down in our bed and landed right on his wounds, causing him pain and a yelp.
Now, he thinks the bed did it and he won’t get back into our bed. I tried putting him back in our bed, petting him, talking to him, and offering treats. He sits there, shaking, heart racing, and all he wants to do is leave the room. Anywhere but the bed. Last night, he slept on a pillow on the floor next to the bed; so sad.
Thankfully, he does not think my wife or I hurt him. He is happy to be around us, just not in that bed.
He is very emotionally sensitive. How do I get our boy back in his rightful snuggle spot?
