Best Friend Moving Away

Hello all!

So my 2 year old dog Mongdori's best friend since he was 10 months old is moving away. She is a female mutt (maybe pit/boxer/hound), 4 years old named Zoe and for over a year now they have met almost every morning before I go to work to play for a good 20 minutes, sometimes they even get to play twice a day, and even longer on weekends.

I'm really worried about how my dog will react when she is gone. Has anyone gone through this before?

Their play styles are so complementary, and since they met in his early formative years, I've found that their bond has gotten so strong that lately they don't allow any other dogs to play with them while they are playing (even if it is a good mutual dog friend).

I also have noticed that he just isn't interested in playing with other dogs the way he used to be. He is so obsessed with Zoe and only Zoe! Whenever we go out for a walk he just wants to go to the park to see if she is there.

I'm worried that he will never make another friend like Zoe and that he will become depressed when they move in a 1.5 months.
Any thoughts or advice would be much appreciated!

Most bull breeds are happy just playing with their people. He may be a little confused at the schedule change, but if you take that time to play tug, or flirt pole with him, after awhile he won't even know the difference. Dogs don't have long term memory like people do. While they remember familiar smells for long periods, they don't remember that it rained last week on Monday. So he'll be fine.

Flirt poles are pretty awesome for active dogs and take minimum effort from the person holding the pole. It's like a fishing pole for dogs. I made mine out of a thin piece of PVC, some boat rope, and a pig ear. It's like playing with a 50 lb cat and entertaining as all get out when you get them to catch air. My boy is too old to do it anymore, but you can see how happy he was in my avatar. Some folks take riding crops and tie onto them instead. It's all in what's available to you.

I've been meaning to make a flirt pole for a while now! Never heard of tying a pig ear on the end. I'm sure that really gets them going!

Ecko was not toy motivated when he was younger, so I started with the pig ear to get him excited about the flirt pole. I would let him win and celebrate by letting him have the pig ear. Eventually I put a stuffingless squeaker toy on it and he was just as happy to prance into the house and show off to anyone who would look.
I'm sure your pup will be happy with either or on the end of a rope. Just gotta let them win sometimes to keep it fun. If they're really into tug you could look into making a spring pole set up too. That one they can play with light supervision on their own as long as it's low enough for them to keep all four feet on the ground.
