Yes, quite a bit.
As best we can sort out what Jazz is experiencing seems to be a combination of grief over losing his friend (they had essentially been with each other for 24 hours a day, every day, over the course of seven years), mixed with some confusion as to what role he is supposed to be playing in the family now. Gig was the alpha, so Jazz is kind of rudderless as he tries adapting to his new lifestyle. As part of our "communal therapy" we've been including him in more of our activities than usual. Cris took him down to the studio a few days ago, and yesterday he went with us for some shopping and to an outside cafe for lunch. (He loves onion rings, go figure.)
He spends much of his time lying in Gig's favorite sleeping spot, or watching the front door.
It will pass, but it'll be some time.
