came home to different dog
We had to leave Lucky for a few days and did so with a wonderful dog/house sitter whom he loves (she does other work for us so he knows her). Since we've been home (she left yesterday) he's been acting very strange-quiet, sleeping a lot, tentative, sad. I'm thinking he must have been a little traumatized by our absence (have only left him for a night before about a year ago) even with such loving care, but does anyone have any experience with this re-entry? He's made a few feeble attempts to play, but seems just to want to rest. Must have been exhausting for him? Sitter said he didn't eat but he slept well...has anyone had this experience and how long does it take to get our cheerful little dog back? Thanks for input and advice.
