Does your dog act sad before you leave to go somewhere?

Does your dog act sad before you leave to go somewhere?
Our Yellow Lab pouts and puts on the most pathetic sad face and sulks when he sees us getting ready to go sowewhere. He will lay down and barely make eye contact with us and every once in awhile you hear him sigh.

He knows when we all put on our boots, coats and other winter gear that we are headed out without him. Poor guy. We try to talk to him and he won't even wag his tail.

Now, when we get dressed to go out to take him to play in the backyard, he gets all excited. We don't even have to say anything, but when we say " Boo, do you want to go out to play"? And he will fly over to the door and his feet keep tap dancing on the floor.

Dogs are too cool, so much fun. Do your dogs act differently when you get ready to go somewhere?

I very seldom leave my dog home alone, at most only 2 hours twice a month. Our dog is very lucky since there are 5 of us in the house and we all take turns looking after her. She also has a favorite spot, a plush chair that is located beside a window. She loves sitting there and watching the neighbors kids as they play. My children, even my teenager all prefer staying at home rather than going out with friends so chacha our chow almost always has a playmate within the vicinity.

It depends. When I have to leave in the morning for classes, he just looks at me with an interested face, but he doesn't even the sofa where he's usually laying down, he just puts he's head up. In the afternoon, which is the time I usually take him for his walk, he gets very agitated and when I leave the house without him he goes to the window to look outside at me, hoping I come back and get him.

One of our dogs would always try to stop my dad from going out. As soon as she realised he was trying to leave, she would go to the door (her sign that she needed a walk). My dad would try to take her outside for a walk and she would refuse to go out. Then, as soon as he took the collar off her, she would go to the door again! When my dad did finally manage to leave, she would sit in the corridor near the door and whine. Sometimes she would do this for a few minutes before going back to bed but sometimes (generally when it was warmer) she would sit there until he came back. I do remember that she once went to sleep near the door waiting for him to return. We had another dog who did not make any kind of a fuss when people left. She was rather calmer and less insecure generally. She would jump up and down and bark when we returned though. As she became older and found it difficult to stand and walk, she stopped doing that but she still looked up and you could see she was happy that you had come back.
