...Dude's seems to have injured his.

He got a burst of energy this morning and, unlike his typical, one-speed-only self, decided to chase Daisy and play keep away with her ball. I was literally laughing out loud because it was soooo unlike him. That joy soon ended because as soon as he stopped and tried to walk up the porch steps he started crying. That was at 8:00AM today.

I gave him a pain pill leftover from having him fixed a few months ago, and even with that he is still crying every time he sits, stands or moves in certain ways.

I've checked his paws and rubbed all over him to see if I could find an external injury, but nothing. I guess I'll see how he does over the weekend but if no improvement, I suppose we will be at the vet's office Monday.

Sorry to hear about this. I hope he is comfortable and that it turns out to be no big deal. Let us know what happens.

Aw, poor Dude! Have you noticed before if he is kind of sensitive? With Indy, she's a big strong dog but one tiny little thing happens and she is noisily complaining, like one time she peed in the flower bed and she didn't like the plants touching her legs, ha,ha! I was right there and saw the whole thing. Anyway, I hope he's just being a little sensitive about pulling a previously unused muscle, poor guy.

Thanks, everyone!

You know, Indiana, now that you mentioned it I do recall his previous owner actually saying something along those lines (he's a big baby when he gets hurt kind-of thing). I'm going to hope that's all it is and that he just needs a few days to heal.

Oh I hope so too. I just remembered another time when I had Indy on a leash, and a big goofy golden retriever popped up on the path in the park to say hi and startled her...WELL you would've thought he took her leg off by the shrieking she did! And he was 4 feet away! So she is one hot-house flower, my big beautiful girl Hope Dude is as well!

I wish Lily was a drama queen a bit more than she is for these things. She will go skidding across the deck after a misstep and get up and keep going most of the time. She can be wildly reckless. I hope this is a drama event for you. I hadn't thought of that since I don't see it my my dogs, but I sure know a few who are dramatic and wear their hurts like badges of honor.

So glad Dude is okay. It sounds like it's been a very long time since he romped and played. He probably used muscles he didn't know he had. They sounds like they are getting along really well.

Glad to hear good news. We need to remember that they should warm up to big exercise just like us. I try to be very careful in the early summer with swimming to ease Lily and Peeves into it. Otherwise they moan all night when they have overdone it.
