Until the last 48 hours, fetch was my puppy's favorite game. He would play it with any toy, but especially his favorite which is a rubber squeaky pacifier (he actually has 2 of these now, since one got a little hole in it).
He still plays with the toys by chewing them. He still wants my attention 24/7. He still eats the same amount of food and doesn't seem to be sick. He'll also still play tug-of-war and destroy-all-valuables.
It's just that all of the sudden he has 0 interest in fetch. That seems odd to me, is there any likely reason? I don't think he had any traumatic experience playing fetch.
My only guess is that since he sees me sitting around all day trying to work on the computer, maybe my "laziness" wore off on him? But it was so abrupt and just 3 days ago he would play fetch for what seemed like 100 throws (maybe it was less, but it seemed like he'd go on forever).
My concerns are just that
- it seems weird, so I wanted to make sure there's nothing going on I haven't detected
- I want him to play it because then I get 2-3 seconds to work while he's fetching and sometimes I can type with 1 hand while getting the toy out of his mouth with the other hand when he retrieves it... without fetch he's barking and crying to be on my lap interfering with my work way more often
