I'm in a bit of a quandary here. Stowdog#1 is quite a flaky character anyway, regularly gets a dodgy tum and is very fond of making a drama out of a crisis. He's an extremely young 11yo, still as fit as a butcher's dog and is often taken to be his sister's son or grandson.
He's been a bit down since Sunday. Nothing I can put my finger on, just a bit down. Slightly off his morning treat (but still eating well in general - wolfed his tea last night and his rawhide treat thingy).
He's been skulking off to his basket looking a bit sorry for himself and shivering a bit, but when encouraged he's been quite happy to jump out and play ball.
As I say he quite regularly gets upset tums, when he shivers a bit but he tends to sleep it off. He's been up and down since Sunday now, which is longer than usual and I don't really know whether to give him some time or see what the vet says. Trouble is, if I take him to the vet what do I say? "He's a bit down (but not really), a bit off his food (but not really)"...sounds a bit lame!
Well I was going to ring the vet when I got home tonight, but he's back to his normal self (hurrah!). He picked up around lunchtime and is all better now. I wonder if he just needed a break from DD (mo)? She adores the dogs and is always trying to stroke them but she was at nursery today
