help ...very depressed dog
 
http://www.horseforum.com/userpix/577_043_1.jpg
HELP......our dog blue is very depressed, he use to fight my daughter for the best spot in front of the a/c, but now that my daughter is gone and doesn't wish to live our farm life (she's 13) blue has taken to sleeping in my daughters empty bed, he use to love walks but now it's more like "let's get it over with" and returns to the house before us and heads straight to her room and up on her bed, pulls the pillow under his head and stays there all day. it's sad i've even walked in to the room and found him with tears...i didn't know that dog could do that, he still get's up to eat every once is a while but is losing weight due to this.
i've tried to get him to sleep on our bed at night but get's up and goes to her room.....if i where blue i would of felt more deseeved then depressed, his only buddy is our orange cat luke who tries to snuggle up to him but he just growles or walks away.
blue is usually is a very out going aussie who has been blind since birth (we think) our local sheriff once told me to shoot the dog because of his problems, ( i asked the sheriff if we should shoot him (the sheriff) because he had problems.....he never mentinoed it again) but now it strange to see him go through this, has any one been through this before?

That's so sad :(

I have only ever heard of it happening pet to pet. I know my dog gets upset when I have to leave him with someone else, but it is never as bad as what you described.

I guess he thinks that he has lost one of his pack mates, he'll probably get over it eventually, just give him lots of hugs and cuddles and let him know he's not alone.
