I think my dog is depressed. She loves me to death and is always happy to go for a walk or ride. But she will otherwise just lay on the couch and look sad and/or sleep. She doesn't interact well with other dogs. No big fights or anything, but she just gets worked up around them. The other day we were at the park tossing the ball. She was excited. But it changed when another dog came running over to check her out. My dog was on a long lead of rope so I could be legal. This other dog was not. They went nose to tail for the inspection, then my dog made a move at the other, sort of like GTFO, and the other dog took off. Then my dog just grabbed her ball and started heading for the truck.

I'd like her to be OK with other dogs, and I'd like her to be happy. Any clues?

Short of getting another dog and hope they get along? You're probably stuck having her solo

How old is she? Laying around most of the time isn't unusual for older dogs

She's nine this year. She got along with out other dogs just fine. And even if it's not other dogs, she needs something that makes her happy. I just haven't figured it out.

Not sure if you are misinterpreting her being sluggish for being unhappy, but maybe get a younger pup, will force her to be more active

I've thought about that. But honestly, I don't know if I can get attached to another critter right now. I think I may try to find some sort of structured doggie socializing for her.

Got a strawberry milkshake today from Carl's Jr with whipped cream and I set it on my table, and went to the bathroom, came back and Spike was licking the whipped cream

Clearly a fox.

ATTN COSMO:

My coworker is adopting a male Weimeraner puppy and they are naming him Cosmo. They were born last night. :)
