Wilma Wednesday: SAD
Wilma does not suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder. I’ve researched the symptoms. She has not lost interest in her favorite activities, nor has her appetite changed one bit. She’s not irritable, though she does have problems getting along with other dogs. She certainly does not feel worthless.
“I’m bored,” she says.
“You could go outside.”
We’ve had a lot of rain. While that makes me happy, it makes Wilma SAD.
“No. It makes me bored.”
We have a little raincoat for her—
“The other dogs make fun of my raincoat.”
“Do you care what they think?”
She ponders this. “Maybe.”
She never used to care. This might be progress.
