Dear Maxine: Worried in Wisconsin

It’s time for another installment of Dear Maxine, where our canine, feline, feathered, and occasionally human friends write in to ask questions about health, lifestyle, toys, or just about anything. This week’s question comes from Worried in Wisconsin, who needs some help figuring out how to handle their humans going back to the office.

Dear Maxine,

My mom and dad have been home almost constantly for the last year due to Covid. They were able to work from home, and I have enjoyed the extra time they have been able to spend with me. But my parents have been talking about going back to work and I am worried about being alone for so much of the day, and mom and dad are worried about how I will react when this happens. Please help!
