separation anxiety

My 14mth old GSD is suffering since her friend, a 10 yr old lab, has gone to his home. We had him here for 8 weeks this time and she is feeling very sad that he has gone. What can I do to ease her sadness? His bed was left here as they wouldn't take it on the plane with him. She now sleeps on it and often during the day she will fold it in half and lay on it looking very sad. I am playing with her more than I normally would and giving her lots of cuddles. We are also going for extra walks so that she is busy and distracted.

It sounds like you are doing all you can. Extra walks and attention. I'm not sure, but possibly removing the bed might help?
