Default Crying for???

Sadie has been crying every night when I get home, and I can't seem to console her. Sometimes she wants treats, but even after I give them to her she keeps whining. She is fed, pottied, and played with so I don't know what is going on. This has been going on for about a week. She also wakes up every night between 2:30 and 3 AM and starts crying??? Could this be her IBD acting up again or something else? She isn't acting sick, just can't seem to get her to calm down and be happy. Maybe it is all the changes we had in our house over the past few months? She acts kinda like something is hurting her, but I can't think of what that would be unless her IBD is acting up again. I put her back on the Pred for a few days to see if that helps. Is this normal for a Yorkie to be like this every night?

Is she normally sensitive? I've noticed some yorkies are more sensitive than others so even the slightest change (like a piece of furniture moved to different area) might affect them.

As for the IBD, if you're suspecting it, I'd say best to be safe then sorry. So go see the vet.

She doesn't handle change very well (just like her mommy). I bought some new furniture the same day my parents were packing up to leave, so maybe it was just too much change all at once. She stopped throwing up once I got her back on the Pred and Zantac for the IBD. Also she was on antibiotics for a UTI that seemed to be upsetting her stomach as well. I will keep an eye on her. If she keeps this up I may have to go to the vet and see what is up. She doesn't act like she is in pain, just not content. She doesn't like the new recliner (neither do I) as it is too high for her to get up on comfortably. Maybe she just misses cuddling with me? I plan to get a different recliner. Maybe that will help. I didn't realize how tall this one is, and it is hard for the two of us to sit comfortably on it. She is used to cuddling at my feet at night while I watch TV.

Well, she is such a little honey! I think a new recliner is a very good idea and maybe a new toy to divert her attention and/or extra snuggle time...

Oh my, this sounds like my furbaby, Kimchi. She cries over anything she's not happy with as well as, of course, discomfort. Sometimes when we can figure what she wants and give it to her or provide it in some way, she'll chill out, but then other times it seems like no matter what we do, she's not happy. I've had to learn the difference between her discomfort to her displeasure >_<
Lots of people laugh, and even me a lot of times, at how drama this yorkie is. I tell folks in a both serious but funny manner that "y'all just don't know!", meaning they just don't know how drama she is, lol She is definitely a "sensitive" yorkie. Our whole family has never had a dog that acted this way. But mind you she's got tons of other good points that more than make up for it, of course ^_~... one big one is being so friggin cute! >_<;; Believe it or not, she's actually gotten better about what she cries over. A lot of times we believe she's just "milking it", my fault really as I used to jump to her every cry/call in her first year. I had to learn to ignore it sometimes (though hard as it may be T_T). It's true, they train you, not you them.
My girl in her baby days cried over falling/tripping over herself, being petted "too firmly", or being kept from going where she wanted to go or wanted to do. If she was "too cold" she'll start crying. It took me a long time not to jump and come to her whenever she cried or "called" (acting/sounded like she's hurt when I know she isn't). She eventually learned to start coming to me when she wants the attention.
But even now, heaven forbid you ignore her presence, especially when she's acknowledging yours (like when any of us in the family comes home after along day, she'll be all happy and greeting like but you better pet her or something >_> or she'll make such noise!). I once did that cause I had lots of groceries to put up and she gave me an indignant cry, very loudly.
I can't pay too much attention to anything else when she's right there. If I'm either trying to pay attention to our older jack russell, Chloe, or give my mother a back rub and Kimchi will start crying >_<; I can be right next to her and trying to watch TV or be on my phone and she'll start whining/crying if she's in that mood. She's also the only dog I know that can draw out a whine for literally 10+ seconds or as much as her breath will allow... as in there's no pause. Also, she'll start to huff or sniffle before she starts to "cry" X_x; So yes, I have a somewhat sensitive yorkie >_<;

LOL I like that "kimchi-ism", yes she's a handful but alot of time when she starts to "whine/cry" we are all like "awww, you poor baby, no one is paying attention to you" as we are petting her >_>;; But yes, it's very hard to resist her. I had gotten this furball lots of gifts for a short time before Christmas, and before she had good manners to go to her bed when we come inside with bags. But since I started to get her more toys around the holidays she's begun to just start going straight for the bags or linger around the table I set it on X_x; Sooo... ;-; she wound up with at least 20 stuffed little squeaky toy... and one big one 3+ times her size last month and the first week this month. I'm trying to trick her now... by sneaking a toy she hasn't played with for a bit, especially if it's been washed, into the bags and act like it's new.
Cause let me tell you, when i bring new toys she's crying and screaming for them. She especially screams when I'm trying to cut tags and stuff off them... I think, she thinks I'm ruining them. She'll scream louder at me whenever I got the scissors on them X_x; As to how I resist.... it's very hard ; ; but I'm trying >_<

Definitely Kimchi sounds just like Sadie, only Sadie gets upset if I can't get the treat out of the bag fast enough vs crying about toys. :-) I do milk her whining sometimes because it is so funny. She has this entire conversation with me about who knows what. We're all alone in the house so I've got to talk to someone. :-) I put a a set of steps up to the new recliner and she was happy as a clam because she was able to crawl up next to me without have to really jump. So maybe that is all it was. She just wanted to be near me like we have been for the last 2 1/2 years, but it was too hard to get on the lazy boy. I agree, Yorkies are just too cute not to smother with attention. I never had a Yorkie before. Always wanted one but the circumstances weren't right. Didn't know what I was in for with the ball of ENERGY, but I love her even in the crazy times. She has finally learned that she can play with her toys all by herself and she does not need to pester me all evening to play. :-)

Thanks for all the words of encouragement. It is nice to have someone to talk to as I am getting to know my way around the joys of being a Yorkie owner.

I couldn't agree with you more! And lord knows, these truly patient and wise folks have heard more than their fair share from me! The support and reassurances provided by so many wonderful YT-ers is priceless. Your little Sadie is an adorable little sweetheart--so cute and she has that mischievous twinkle about her!

Yorkies can be very emotionally sensitive but usually a lot of attention and companionship will settle them down after a little while. My little girl cries when my daughter comes to visit. She moved to her own place over a year ago and Gracie still misses her. When DD comes in the door Gracie puts on quite a show with whining and crying as though she had been mistreated all the time she was gone! It is really quite a sight. But when DD sits down and holds Gracie for a while she settles down and is fine.

Your baby waking up and crying at night is quite concerning. I think it would be worth having her checked out, just in case. Keep watching he potty habits and other behaviors for anything different. Sometimes it is the little things that give the best clues of what is going on.
