I have a senior Yorkie, 11 1/2 and it seems the older he gets he has developed a neurotic reaction to certain noices. If he hears anything beep like the microwave, or a beeper sound, low battery beep on my phone or the fire alarm, even my husbands cell phone ring (he has changed the ring sytle 3 times to find something that wont bother Cidney) he becomes quite anxious and wants me to pick him up and hold him. Sometimes if a beep sound occurs on TV that sets him off. I dont know what has started this and I feel so bad for him because I think he is experiencing fear and I do everything I can to prevent this from happening. Maybe this isnt exactly a "quirk" and I should consult with a vet???? Does any of your dogs have a strange thing about them you dont understand?
