got an email yesterday from my MIL who said Comet was limping pretty bad. We freaked and scheduled a vet visit ASAP. when i got home he was excited to see me and whining as usual but walking around like a dog with 3 legs.

oh man. freaked out x2. not pleasent seeing the lil guy in pain, luckily its only a bruised wrist, maybe he did it on the walk yesterday am (it was raining BAD) or from jumping off the chair or couch. doc gave him 5 days of inflamatory drugs and said to hold off on walks for a few days.

luckily he's teething and obsessed with rawhide donuts the last couple of days so he'll work on that all night long. other than that missing two walks so far he's def wound up. but this morning he walking with that slinky snake like movement so he seems better. good.

Glad to hear it's nothing serious. But please get rid of the rawhide. It can cause much bigger problems. Kongs, antlers are much better chewies.

Ouch. Agreed on the rawhide.
The best thing is raw soup bones from the butcher shop or meat dept.
Tessie loves them and when she's done eating the marrow, we restuff them with american cheese like a Kong, but much better tasting.

Sorry he's hurting but glad it's nothing serious. I 2nd the soup bones. I freeze them and give them as summer treats. You do need to be careful though. Sam became strong enough to splinter a marrow bone so I had to take his away. Ike has yet to exert that much force in his chew/bite yet. Unfortunately for me, neither of my guys showed an interest in Kongs...=(

Do you have a link for antlers?

our other fav chew are bully sticks but he eats a 6" in about 40 minutes these days.

Yes, I order from petexpertise too. For my crew I order the XXL. And we have some they're still chewing daily that we've had since Easter. ( don't ask how I remember that..... lol)

Sorry to hear that he's a little sore. Sounds like he sure doesn't mind being stuck inside with all those yummy treats!
If you asked him, he'd tell you he is an indoor dog. loves lounging around on the couch/chair/oversized pillow/kuranda bed...
he's the canine version of me.

although if you put him on a nature trail it's nose to teh ground and full steam forward. CAN NOT wait till he's older and we can do some more aggressive hiking. hope he's down for an easy short hike this Sunday/Monday.
