In this Tuesday, Jan. 29, 2013 photo, Meliisa Duffy prepares to leave for work as her dog, a pure bred rat terrier named Dinky, anxiously watches her put on her socks and shoes in Carlsbad, Calif. "She starts to get anxious when I am getting ready to go out, whining, pacing, shivering," Duffy says. Being left with a food-dispensing toy calms her reaction to Duffy's departure and has longer-lasting effects as well. (AP Photo/Lenny Ignelzi)
