Sorry, having a hard time following the sequence of changes in living arrangements -- has there been a recent change in the people living in the same household as Treasure? Did the dog move from one house to another? Those are stressers that can affect a dog's behavior. Dogs don't have to "sense" sadness -- they know how we feel, just cause of their super powers of observation. All those hours we spend watching TV or whatever, the dog's not catching up on email or updating facebook, she's watching, and they watch us closely. They know what kind of mood we're in before we do.

Moving slower and not jumping when she used to jump...those are possible symptoms of physical pain. Does she chew or lick her feet at night? Dogs are reluctant to show weakness and will try to hide pain from us. If she's experiencing joint pain, there are medications that can help.
