    Default Whining - why!?!

    Good morning everyone,

    Otis has all of a sudden has begun to whine and I'm not sure why - he will sit up on the bed in the middle of the night and just whine - we take him out to do his thing and back to bed - about an hour or so later he is sitting up again whining - so we take him out and nothing.

    Last night he also whined just before bed time while laying on the bed - is there something wrong with my baby boy? Very concerned as he has never done this before - normally he sleeps right throught the night - but for the last three nights this has been happening.

    The whine is scaring me, is he sick, hurt, scared, hungry, tired...?

    I have no clue..but I'm with Bruce...if it goes if this has gone on for a couple days..I'd take him to the vet. It could be ome thing as simple as he is playing you...or something causing him pain. Let us know!

    I agree with Bruce and Jakeisgreat, if he is whining while right there with you that seems odd. Trust your instincts and if something feels off, take him to the vet.

    Thank you everyone! I was thinking it is an attention getter but better to be safe then sorry.

    Sometimes they do it for attention but usually as young pups and then they grow out of it Well some I would also just have the vet do a checkup just to be sure! Hope all goes well and keep us posted

    Better safe than sorry! If his routine has stayed the same and this whining is new I would have him checked out just in case. A lot can happen to a bully within 3 days of a problem starting. Keep us updated. Hope all is OK!

    Boadie wines when he is sleepy. But he has done this ever since we got him. He is also very vocal, always barking and doing little monkey sounds too.
    In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.

    Yes, he's peeing and pooping fine, all is normal with the exception of the whining - mind you he doesn't do it all the time but towards bed time it begins.

    Definitely need a vet check. I wonder if it might be an ear infection. My skin kids would do is when they were little, be fine all day but at night be up crying and whining and it usually ended up being an ear infection.... Just a thought. Hope all is well.
