how do I know my hav is happy

Just checking in - how do I know if my hav is happy?
Is it that smile on his face.

I think of this because he just plopped down next tome and those darling little eyes are lookin' at me.

So I ask again, am I sure he's happy?

Oh it's such a long story with a happy ending... But I think my little guy had a low grade pain syndrome going on. He literally acted depressed. I started supplementing his diet with Joint support and anti-inflammatory fish oil and he turned around in a few weeks...

Here's the whole thread of how I figured this out if you are interested.

Is Henry doing something that made you ask the question? or just a sort "I wish I were dog and get eat, play and be petted all day" moment?
