I am real tired of this stuff..spam/troll. I think Emma and the organic food need to go bye bye. Edit..done


My first thought was vet check. If a dog slows down and acts inappropriately to their age it's a big red flag. Even Mary (lab) at 16 galloped her old arthritic body across a field with her tail wagging. HEr son however at 7 watched her chase after a ball. I should have known right then that something was wrong and I missed it. I didn't know he was growing lung cancer.
My second is lack of stimulation.
IF the vet check is clear, start with a short walk. THen slowly increase the distance, the terrian. SHow this dog there is a world out there and that living is good. SOme dogs never are much for play. SOme dogs like a companion some don't. I think a lot of dogs just fall into a routine.

Now I wish today mine would just eat and go lay down. Instead it's pleading eyes..and nods of heads..hint hint the door the door....I showed them too much of the world and now it's winter and too cold for me but not for them. Good luck. I hope you find a happy balance.

Is this a new behavior? What do you do to try to engage him in activities? How old is he? How long have you had him? What's his history?

Copy that. It is really getting tiresome! Grrrr.

I agree with the others with very sensible posts.
