Separation anxiety.....from another dog

Okay, Georgia (6 years old) has started to show signs of separation anxiety from being separated from Daisy (2 years old) when we leave. Georgia has never had anxiety from being separate from us.

Daisy and her are completely separate when we go out. Daisy is in the bedroom and Georgia has the rest of the house. We first discovered the other night (during a thunderstorm) that Georgia had dug and lifted some of the rug outside the bedroom door (where Daisy is in). Later when we came home we thought it was due to the stress from the storm.

But, today there was no storm. We went out and came home after 2 1/2 hours and Georgia had torn up a good chunk of carpet and scratched the bedroom door (where Daisy is) to crap. We set up a surveillance (camera) and watched them alone for a little while when we weren't home... they were fine....slept together on our bed

What is going on??

The last time Georgia was destructive was at the age of 1 1/2 years old...she is now 6!

Georgia usually sleeps on the sofa until we come home. We don't care about the damage....she could destroy anything...we only care about her. Her and Daisy have never had a tiff. They are extremely bonded and attached.

Has anyone ever heard of a dog having separation anxiety from being separate from another dog?

Suggestions please??? We always do what is best for them.
