It took a long time but Belle finally fell asleep. I caled the Vet at home around 9 p.m because she still wasn't calming down. He had me give her 1/2 capsule of Benedryl and after about 45 mins. she slowly quieted down. This morning she is still exhausted but quiet. When the vet calls me to check on her I will be asking him what to do in the future. If I shut her in bedroom in crate with soothing music and she can hear the kids I think she will still get too excited and frustrated too. If I let her out to see them and then put her away I think the same will happen. I will let you know what the vet says for future visits. I hope she outgrows this! I am glad that great-grandchildren don't come over very often (I love seeing them but not at the expense of Belle getting this upset). I will have to go to their home.
How about if the kids and Belle play in an extremely relaxed manner like just petting and quiet talk?
