I've been living with my sister and her husband for 8 months now, and my Beagle and their chihuahua have been getting along pretty well and have been good friends since then. But yesterday their dog got injured while it was playing in the backyard and they had to take him to the vet and get a procedure done. Afterwards, it came back home with a cast and will have it take off tomorrow; meanwhile, last night after coming back home from work I noticed that my dog was acting a little bit lethargic or depressed.
This morning he was acting the same way, so I took him to the local dog park. He didn't wanna socialize with the other dogs, instead he was just following me around just being my shadow. I know he's not sick or in pain because he still has his appetite, he still barked when I pulled in at the dog park (last time he was sick he didn't do this.), he played fetch while at the park. Another thing that I should add is that while I was at the gym this morning, my sister said that my dog was sitting down outside their glass door in the backyard just watching their chihuahua walk around inside. After knowing this, it just gave me the thought that maybe my dog is just seriously worried about its friend.
Has anyone else experienced anything like this with their dog?
