It's hard to tell if your dog is depressed since you can't ask how they feel or if they are okay. This is why it is very important to bring your dog to a vet if you see your best-friend has an abrupt change in behavior. So that they can assess what causes it.
Depression in dogs differs from each, here are some signs that dogs make if they are depressed:
1. Moody - the most common sign that your dog is depressed is if suddenly your pet stop getting excited on things he look forward to. You will see him often inactive and moping around all day. His head will be hanging and his tail are between his legs. His ears will also be pulled back.
If you want him to get back to his perky self is to introduce new activities or toys and when you see his tail wag or if he gets excited reinforce the positive behavior immediately.
2. Eat less or Don't eat at all - if a dog is depressed he usually eat less or worse he will refuse food at all.
Make sure you feed your dog on schedule as much as possible and be patient if he don't eat immediately once you give the bowl don't remove it right away. You can also add a little wet food but not always he might look for it every meal time.
3. Inactivity, sleep too much - On the average dogs sleeps 14 hours a day. But if the dog seems to sleep too much give him something to do or give the little pooch a walk.
4. Aggressive behavior - usually it is because of not enough exercise, so let him run in the yard or in a park.
5. Appears looking for someone - this usually happens following the loss of a family member the dog will look from one room to another searching for the lost individual.
Depressed dog will be okay as long as they are drinking, eating, urinating and defecating and they still wants to go outside for a walk just be patient specially if they are grieving. By giving them ample attention and activity like enjoyable things your dog likes, most of them tend to overcome depression on their own.

With rising temperatures it's important not to leave small children and pets inside a park vehicle. Leaving your pet and kids in a hot vehicle will not just endanger your love ones but you will also be facing the law.
Lt. Mike Budreau of the Medford Police Department said that this is a problem when spring and summer arrives.
Diana Schropp a vet at Medford's Southern Oregon Veterinary Specialty Center said that, when the temperature is getting higher from 70 Fahrenheit and above, leaving a pet in a hot car even with a cracked window and with the air-conditioning off can result to heat stroke. If the dogs temperatures get to 106 and above, the dog will have seizures since dogs have difficulties in cooling off and getting rid of excess heat. Symptoms of heat exhaustion in dogs includes forceful panting, weakness, staggering and a darker colored gum.
American Veterinary Medical Association stated that just 10 minutes inside a parked car the temperature can rise 20 degrees hotter than the air outside. It will also continue to rise every minute.
For kids, symptoms of heat exhaustion include vomiting, dizziness, fatigue, and headache.
Leaving your pet locked inside a hot parked vehicle will get you a 2nd degree animal neglect which is a Class B misdemeanor. If the pet is injured or dies, you will get a 1st degree animal neglect which is a Class A misdemeanor.
Police advice people to call 911 if they see a hot vehicle with a distressed dog or kids inside an officer will respond to rescue them.

A cute pooch don't seem to realize that he was asking a statue to play fetch with him. The dog is really determined to get the statue to throw the stick. He even place the stick in-front of the statue's foot and begin to run, jump, and crouch just to get the attention of the statue.
