Hi everyone!

I found you all searching for ideas on why my sweet Golden would be walking funny (the vet and I think it was just that he wasn't thrilled with the snow/ice we'd gotten). I'm Shanna, and am owned by an almost one year old Golden called Mark. He'll be one April 9th. He's such a sweet and cool dog, and is so good with our two young kiddos. Looking forward to getting great information on Goldens and hearing about yours and sharing about my boy!

Here's a picture of Mark:

Have you seen the movie "Happy Feet"? Where the penguin was born dancing? Mark was doing that for a bit with his hind legs (a weird rapid-step with just his hind legs as he walked normal with his front legs). It lasted about a week and I wasn't sure what to think about it... and the vet wasn't able to find anything "wrong" with him. :0/ I wondered if Mark slipped in the snow/ice we'd just gotten and I missed seeing it and had a hurt back-end or legs/hip as a result. He's such a sweet dog that I hated seeing him like that. He didn't seem to be in pain, though, that was the weird thing... just was walking strangely.

Hello and welcome,
Hopefully he is just like me and doesnt like cold feet. I hate winter. He is a real handsome boy and sounds like he is buddies with the kids.
