If he were any other breed, I wouldn't find this alarming. But he's a VIZSLA. The most velcro of velcro. Has to be touching you at all times, wedged into your chair to sit with you, laying on your feet, stuck to you, mild separation anxiety... typical V.
He's slept in our bed every single night for the last 5 years. If you said Hey, your vizsla should sleep on the floor, you'd get better sleep, I'd laugh until I couldn't breathe. I'd say, If you can get him to sleep somewhere else, I'll pay you for it.
7 nights ago, he simply got off the bed and left. Went downstairs and slept on the couch. He hasn't slept with us since.
Everything else is exactly the same. Same food, routine, exercise, pees, poops, happiness, friendliness. He is loving as usual during the day. Nothing in the bedroom changed. He will lay on the bed while we are getting ready for work. He comes in at bedtime and lays with us for about 5 minutes every night, then leaves.
He is not sick. I'm no vet but I'm a human health care provider and don't see any typical signs or symptoms of illness.
Anyone else's V do this? Is he like the college kid who's flown the coop and I'm just upset about it??
Thanks for your input!
