Charlie's third absence (3:20) was not good, though, even though he had ample exercise in the afternoon: he went on a double walk and spent approx. 3:00 at the beach at Crissy. He received 0.25 mg of alprazolam about an 1.5 hours before I left him. The MM appeared to be working properly throughout the absence. He was generally calm for the first hour, but then around 1:15 [THIS VIDEO BEGIN SHORTLY BEFORE THIS POINT] he began breathing quickly and went into a short howling fit. He calmed himself down in front of the MM. Around 1:19 he heard a noise which drew his attention towards the door of the apartment, which led to a short bit of whining and wandering around the x-pen. He had another howling incident around 1:35, this time from an unusual position: lying halfway on his back on the floor. He soothed himself by digging in his bed and licking himself. Again around 2:00 he began whining and looking at the door again. Around 2:09 he had a howling incident while lying in his round bed, then at 2:14 he had a long crying/whining/howling incident while looking at the front door of the apartment. This culminated in him jumping up on the side of the x-pen. He continued whining and howled until around 2:24. After that, he continued whimpering periodically and never really settled. He then had another big howl around 2:43 and pulled the towel down off the side of the x-pen. He wandered around his x-pen, as if looking for something to occupy him attention (though the MM was working properly). He continued looking towards the door and howled again at 3:09. He continued whimpering and howled again in several bouts around 3:14. Finally when we came home he was incredibly amp'ed up and took nearly 10 mins to settle down and begin breathing at a normal, relaxed pace. Video on Vimeo.
