Is your dog down in the dumps? Doggy depressed? Is he a doggy downer? Is he dog gone depressed? Here are 10 ways to turn that frown upside down:
- Baby talk
Baby talk until they can’t take it anymore. You’ll drive them crazy with your love but they WILL love you in the end.
Kiss them uncontrollably on their head, paws, tails, backs, mouth but not the butt. Stay away from that.
- Turn on their favorite movie
“Turner and Hooch”? “101 Dalmatians”? “Benji”? Anything that stars a dog is A+.
- Ask them what’s wrong
They won’t respond, but at least you’ll feel better for asking! (This one is more for you, to be honest.)
- Force them out of bed
Always force a depressed dog out of the house. The fresh air will cheer them right up!
- Throw something
Throw a stick, a ball, a toy, anything that they could potentially carry in their mouths. Maybe they’ll play fetch with you, maybe not.
- Give them treats
Dogs love to eat. Always.
- Schedule a Doggy Date
Maybe you’re dog lives alone and he feels disconnected from the canine community. Maybe he’s tired of seeing your ugly human face all the time and wants a friend or two around! Give him that!
- Take them to Petco
It’s where the pets go. Seriously tons of pets go here and they’ll be happy picking out a new toy and maybe a new treat.
Get that fatty off the couch. Burning calories is good for everyone. Including you! If your dog is out of shape that probably means you are too! Win-Win!
