    You have an Appy too! Is he crabby? Mine is crabby, but that's the breed. Horse people are notoriously crazy, so I don't blame you for not wanting to have boarders.

    I got nicked at the emergency vet a few years ago during Memorial Day weekend for $400. ER visit, exam and xrays because my 14 year old Sheltie had a distended belly and was in pain. Xrays confirmed that he needed to take a dump......which he did all over the vet's office. He wagged his tail the whole way home.

    You wanna hear something funny? The same thing happened to my husband when he was a kid. My mother in law felt a lump in his stomach area and ran him to the doctor, who pronounced that it was "tomorrow's stool".

    That's his snout in my avatar. He's actually not crabby. Quite playful and curious. He's 22-ish and his name is Blaze.

    How do you do, Blaze? He is handsome. This is my Eddie, who is also 22.

    Nice......must have been an impressive stool to be felt from the outside! Kudos!

    Our dog, Monty, is a notorious sissy when it rains out and it had been raining for a few days so even though he went out he probably just hid under a tree until he thought it was enough time that we'd let him back inside. Jerk!

    Very similar to mine - 12.5 years old, had rigid stomach, gas, no appetite, and appeared to be uncomfortable. Vet originally thought he had some sort of blockage but Xrays just showed a lot of fluid and gas in his stomach. They also did some blood tests to make sure his organs were functioning OK and gave him an IV and a shot of Pepsid. Still don't know what caused it but they suspect he found something rotten laying around on the ground and ate it (the moron).

    Mine had a "pussy" moment of his own a few years ago. Got up in the morning and could barely move and yelped every time he tried to. Rushed him to the Vet, turned out he had strained a neck muscle from running around in the deep snow the previous day. Took one muscle relaxer pill and was fine the next day.

    that happens a lot to dogs. they can't lift their heads. my beagles used to do that all the time. the vet would give them prednisone and the next morning they were fine.

    Yep, he's a short stubby-legged little guy and was trying to hold his head up above the snow.

    Absolutely correct.

    Fat people can't smell their own ass cheese either.

    True. I have dogs and think it's fine, then we leave for a day or so and come back and it's funky. Actually it's the beagle that does it. The other two are probably not big contributors.

    Before anyone comes over it's a big cleanup production.

    i've got four cats, an IUD, a beer in my hand and 10 in the fridge. my barren womb feels fine knowing the pets will make do with a bowl full of food and the leaky sink faucet for the next twelve hours while i'm drunk/passed out

    Let's see..I don't need to save to send my dog to college only to have them drop out b/c they partied too much, I have never had to bail my dog out of jail b/c he got a DUI while driving at 18, my dog has never knocked up the teenage female down the street, and my dog will never become addicted to drugs...

    My friends kids on the other hand??? All of them have had to do at least one of these things.
