Why does my dachshund have to have his tennis ball to be happy?


Whenever I take it away he gets sad and just stares at where I put it (or where he "thinks" i may have put it). Then he just walks around the house all mopey when he doesn't have it. Once he has it he is happy and playful and always wants us to throw it for his so he can chase it. It's fun but he almost seems emotionally attached to it! When he was little he loved sticks until he had a bad incident. But he is now almost 8 years old and has been attached almost his whole life. We took it away for a week one time but he turned into a different dog. He acted old and sad.. Help!?
