Henri' and his ball. He does want to play a lot, but then when he comes in, he seems dumpy. This is his game. He passes the ball through the opening on the deck and then we throw it into the yard and he chases it.
I have been worried about Henri, after losing Timber. He seems kind of lost and isn't eating well. I'm reading "that when one dog dies you may notice some changes in the one that is left behind. Because they cannot speak, we don't really know what they are thinking, so we must base our interpretations of their emotional state on their behavior. They show symptoms similar to humans such as loss of interest and sleeping more than usual. They may lose their appetite and become disoriented. Without the other canine pack member, his position in life has now changed. A former leader dog is without a follower. A former follower dog is without a canine leader. When the daily scent of his friend is suddenly gone, and the daily routine is absent, the dog must certainly become confused. We think that dogs don't actually understand the concept of death, much like small children, but he knows that his pal isn't there and his scent is gone from the environment. So because he doesn't understand what happened, and because he can't play or smell his friend, and his daily routine is turned upside down for him, he might just lay around all day. His familiar smells are gone. We probably interpret this as sadness or grieving. Your dog may miss his canine companion as much as you do. Time heals all wounds has meaning for your dog too."
