Feel free to laugh all you like, but I'm going to have a lot of questions in the upcoming months about dog behavior, training, my own behavior, etc...; I'll gladly
take a little mockery if there are a few nuggets of good, sincere advice thrown in, too!
Here's my question of the day: do dogs have "blue" days? Some of you responded to a question I had yesterday (thanks for that!) about an "altercation" between my boy and his toy (I think he thinks the toy won--but we're going to address that issue), but even before and after he had that little scare with the toy, he just seemed not himself.
Usually he's happy-go-lucky and essentially fearless. Yesterday, though, he looked like he had something on his mind. I teach high school-aged kids all day and know exactly what they look like when they've got something troubling them, and that's exactly what my boy looked like!
I tried being extra silly and fun (I have the sore throat today to prove it!), but he just seemed "meh" about things (compared to his usual behavior).
Do any of you ever see that in your own dogs, or does this seem odd?
As always, thank you for your thoughts.
