worried about Daizy
Our 4 yr old jack russell, Daizy, isn't usually the must active dog. As far as jack russels go, she's the calmest one I've ever seen. She has her hyper moments, or extreme bursts of energy, but she calms down just as quick. She's always been a sleepy doggy. She sleeps a good bit. But 3 days ago, there was a big very noticeable change. She usually sleeps or lays around in the living room or whatever room the family is in. But she started going to my room to sleep-all day-only coming out for a quick drink of water, very small bit too eat, or to go out. She's eating and drinking way less. She usually goes out at least 15 times a day. I'm a smoker and when I step outside to smoke, (only smoke outside) she goes with me every time. As of 3 days ago, she's only come out of my room to go outside about 8 or 9 times. She seems depressed. This started at the exact same time my kids brought home 2 new pet hamsters. I tried to introduce her and let her get familiar with them, but it became quickly evident that she wanted to chew on them. I keep thinking maybe she's jealous, but it seems unlikely at the same time because they weren't even here for a 24 hr period and her behavior didn't change. Idk what to think. Anyone have any thoughts?
