Barking mad

Hello, blog fans. It's Luna DeLune here!

For years, I've been trying to convince my friends and colleagues of the importance of looking after their pets' mental health. And now, with the sorry case of Stink Delavigne, everyone is finally interested in what I have to say.

I first became interested in the field of animal psychology when a cat friend of mine began displaying signs of bipolar disorder. One day, she'd be insanely happy, purring at 60 decibels, and the next, she'd spend hours and hours lying on her favorite cushion, staring into space. I knew something was wrong. So I enrolled in an online animal psychology course, and I haven't looked back!

Anyway, here are a few tips for those of you with mentally-troubled pets:

  • Listen to your pets. They may not be able to talk, but animals have ways of signaling their feelings (purring, barking, urinating on the couch, biting children's arms off, etc.).
  • Talk to your pets. It has not yet been proven by science that animals can understand human speech, but I for one am fairly certain that they can. And besides, what have you got to lose apart from your dignity?
  • Respect your pets. Don't forget that animals are people too!
Do you have any tips that you'd like to share with us? I'm always open to new suggestions!

Also, what did you make of Dr. Gilchrist, the dog psychologist from New Zealand who diagnosed Stink in this month's Funky Friday? Personally, I think he was a charlatan and deserves to be sent to prison. For life. How about you?!

I think Dr Gilchrist should be send to Delavigne Corporation. If there is one thing which the company needs more than anything in the world, it is an insane dog psychologist. Especially if he is from New Zealand.

I agree with Geoffrey, in Delavigne corporation people seem to feel boring around the coffee machine. If this dog psychologist had a position as fun maker for breaking the routine, Delavigne would go to a growth. Olere could introduce him to his lab and make acquaintance with his monkeys, to have nice chats with them as well as with Stink, which he would be selected to walk with along the street with a label on both of their backs :Smile and feel good.
