Mommy and mamie are very worried about me because they say I am acting funny, and I guess I kind am. See, usually I am all up in your face, play with me play with me play with me, bouncing off the walls, running up and down the stairs, and all in all being a monster and today I'm not. All of a sudden today I'm very sleepy looking, not really that into playing, I'm afraid to go up/down the stairs (like I'll sit at the bottom of them and wait for somebody to carry me up), I'm turning down treats (I didn't eat my Timbit), I have really barked much, and a few minutes ago I had a hard time reaching my leg up to scratch an itch on my face.
Mommy read somewhere that issues like this can be caused by constipation so she took me for a walk to see if I would leave any little presents...I did, but right after I finished leaving one, I tried to leave another and squeezed barely anything out, then I walked a couple more steps and tried again, squeezed a little bit more out...but neither time was it hard as a rock or anything...in fact, those last couple times were kind if runny. I don't have any funny tummy noises coming from me, my "presents" aren't funny colored, I will still eat (and actually begged for pineapple).
Mommy called the vet hoping they'd have something constructive to say but they really didn't. All they said to her was "Well, we should really see him if he's having that many issues with bowel movements, how's 3:30pm tomorrow", after mommy agreed she asked if they had any suggestions for what to do for me tonight and all they said was "well, make sure he's drinking water, make sure when he has to go to the bathroom you let him out right away, and keep him as comfortable as possible"...boy was mommy mad when she heard that...I DO get let out when I need to be...I DO drink water, and if she knew how to keep me comfortable for the night she wouldn't be calling.
Anybody have any suggestions to help mamie and mommy calm down until tomorrow's vet appointment? Do I sound like I have constipation?
