    Default Con Artist

    Anyone else ever feel like their bulldog is a con artist? Rumble had me really worried Saturday morning when he started to limp a little with his left front paw. I called my husband asking if he noticed anything before he left for work and he said he didn't. I had a meeting so I put him in his kennel and told myself some rest will help him. When I got home he came out of his kennel and then started to limp again. I had plans to take him into a local pet store to get him some new treats so I decided to still take him after feeling his paw and shoulder and him not wincing in pain. As soon as I got his harness out it was like he was perfectly fine. He went to the pet store where the owner rubbed his belly and gave him some new treats they were trying out(the pet store is entirely grain free so I don't have to worry about most of the stuff there!). He left with a new swagger in his step thinking he was top dog.

    Then Sunday morning came and he did the same thing for a little bit and then was back to normal when we showed him a toy. He started to run around the house and bounce around like nothing at all. So my question is do you think Rumble is a little con artist wanting attention or is there something wrong? We have both looked and cannot find anything in his paw and he does not flinch or wince at all when we touch his leg. Just about once a day, usually when we are not paying attention to him, he starts to limp a little bit but then if we go to him or give him a treat or a toy he is perfectly fine. Con artist or injured??
    And for good measure one of my favorite pictures of Rumble and my husband. -20130124_205301-jpg

    It seem to me that there might be something minor wrong with his paw. He might have stepped or jumped wrong and twisted it; but remember that bulldogs have such a high tolerance to pain. More than likely if he's doing something normal, he's going to limp a little bit but the minute an activity has his full attention and eagerness that limp is going to go away in favor of play!

    I wouldn't worry too much. Give it a few days and try to keep him calm, then see if his limp disappears. It is time to worry when these little activity treats fail to excite him that you should really worry.

    He was born 10-2-12 so he is 4 months old and will be 18 weeks tomorrow. All these compliments go straight to his head! He is quite the large puppy though I am afraid. He weighed 34.6 pounds this weekend at the pet store.

    They will do that from time to time as they grow, sometimes they may sleep on it wrong or slightly wrench a muscle when playing or just growing pains. As long as he doesn't limp all the time I would just watch it. Plus the pic of Rumble and your hubby is priceless. Looks like Rumble is telling your hubby all about it.

    I know! We now only feed him 2 cups a day total also(the bag recommends 3 to 4 based on his age and weight!). He has a little pudgy puppy belly but the vet said he looks great and to not worry too much at this age. His dad was big also but I'm not sure how much he weighs. Here is a picture of his dad.-rambor1-jpg
