Sort of sounds like we experienced the same thing with our goldens! We actually had a video camera rolling (aimed at the trash can) to capture the prankster but we got the audio only Barkley grunting and panting while dragging the Vittle Vault across the floor. He'd pant, grunt, drag, then bark at it, start up again. I sure wish the camera had been aimed at that! We did capture him counter surfing too, but we wised up and removed anything of interest. We didn't think he would touch the avocados and tomatoes ripening, but he did--dropping them on the floor when he decided they weren't worthy of eating.i'm sort of giggling - when i say excessive hunger, it is almost the understatement of the year. we were always able to leave her bag of food on the floor in the kitchen and she'd never touch it. while on that stuff she was constantly sticking her head in the bag and chowing as much as she could before we caught her (it got put into the spare bathroom after that) and was suddenly a dog who'd rout around in the trash.
My Labrador is on the same steroid, yes panting is a side effect, mine pants most of her waking hours, I had a dog on them years ago and used to wet a towel and wring ot out so just damp and drape it on his back, unfortunatley it is a side effect that doesnt ease, dont know about the getting up tho, whats he on them for?Hi - Chance has been on Prednisone does anyone know of the side effects he seems to be panting more than normal and also has a hard time getting up
