Yes they can get depressed, especially when mum and dad go on hols! Ours always used to look downcast the minute she saw a suitcase come out, and went reluctantly to our friend who used to look after her, and would be a bit subdued when she came home. We dog-sit now and some of them do seem to get a bit homesick, then pick up once they've settled in, and one of their owners says that her dog is a bit depressed when he comes home - she thinks it's because he gets bored at home, whereas with us he gets taken out for walks quite a lot. So it could be that, especially as you say it's the first time you've left him with anyone, but it's worth getting him checked over, especially with the recent food problem. Hope he's OK.

Oh poor Padfoot :( ....I do think dogs get depressed and also have anxiety attacks. When we go shopping we now lock Barney on the front veranda as he keeps digging HUGE holes in the yard. He also thinks everyone who is not 'us' is a hooligan, therefore he doesn't take to strangers very well.

If Padfoot doesn't improve then perhaps you should speak to your vet?

Hope Padfoot feels better soon.

Thanks everyone for the advice and insight. Last night was one of the first "cool" nights we have had in a long time around here and Padfoot seemed to be back in true form. Played with his favorite toys, chased his leash, and played in his kiddie pool. He is at doggy daycare today and seems to be having fun. I'm thinking the combination of leaving his "buddy" Half-Pint, us leaving for vacation, and the horrible weather just really zapped him. We will continue to keep an eye on him just in case, but I'm hopeful!

Sounds like you could be right Brenna. I love the thought of him in his paddling pool, I'm jealous!

Well since you asked..... (these were taken last summer)

The first one is him barking at Ben for causing waves in his pool; the second one contemplating putting his entire head under the water; the third after getting a nice drink while swimming.

Padfoot turned two a few weeks past and I couldn't help taking a bunch of pictures. Here are two-one of him passed out waiting for his daddy to get home, the other of him getting tangeld in my knitting. Enjoy!

He obviously had a few celebrations judging by the way he's sprawled out, he's adorable.

Sprawly pup-doggy. Made my day, even though I'm significantly late to this party!
