Norman is a playful pup who loves to play fetch in the woods because of the piles of leaves he can jump in and search for his ball. This boy is so prone to injuring himself it almost makes me laugh! (No serious injuries)
Two weeks ago he got a small scrape on the top of his right eyelid, nothing serious. Today, he got another scrape on the corner of the same eye! Assumed it was a stick in the woods while we were playing fetch. He didn’t scratch at it, didn’t cry, and just kept begging for me to throw the ball again!! Took him to the vet within an hour of it happening just to make sure it wasn’t some weird infection since it started bleeding. Overall the vet confirmed it’s just from a scratch in possibly some wood and his eyes look perfect.
Do you y’all have a wild-child pup?? Love this dude so much. Keeps me on my toes!!!

My goodness, Norman! Wild child, indeed!

Peggy's crazy when it comes to navigating our slippery floors. If she gets too excited, she wants to tear around corners (and now the Christmas tree!) and is prone to pretty spectacular wipeouts. Although she's getting less clumsy with each passing day, I try to manage her speed and energy level in the house as much as possible. My childhood dog once starfished on some backyard ice and never fully recovered.

Best wishes for speedy healing, Norman! Be careful out there :)

Glad he's okay?. My poodle Sisko will run into this small table we have while playing and acts like nothing even happened, and sometimes when I take him for walks he'll get Zoomies and try to run around and play tug the leash and dig, it's not safe though because he's managed to get loose sometimes and it turns into the best game in the world to him.

He's done it in the field behind my apartment, once while I was taking him to potty at night and a few other times. It's terrified me everytime. Yesterday he got Zoomies while we were walking around the block. He tries to pull to get to the road.

Is Sisko getting enough exercise, both mental and physical? Between this and your prong collar post, I'm wondering if he is rather frustrated and using whatever opportunity he can to blow off some steam.

It also sounds like you're not using a harness. Front-clip harnesses are excellent for redirecting a pulling dog, and much harder for them to get out of. They also protect their delicate respiratory system.

(Peggy just had a backyard frisbee session, followed by some short but intense zoomies. She'll do this right before coming inside if she still has some energy to burn, and then quietly wait at the door. It's rather ingenious, but would be unpleasant and potentially unsafe if she tried doing it on-leash.)

Haha yes slippery floors!!! If Norman’s feet are going too fast he pulls that scooby doo running in place for a second! Too funny.
I’m glad Peggy is getting her balance, Norman can be standing still and manage to be clumsy!! Glad you can understand lol!!!

Norman’s loves to be chased in our house or back yard. Especially if he steals a glove or a shoe!!!!! Thankfully we have an invisible fence so he can’t get into danger

? That's so funny! I had an Aussie that would steal socks and make sure you knew that she had it and run off if you got up to try to get her.
