    Default Unable to sleep last night...

    Winston scared me to death last night... We had gone for a short walk around 8pm, and I mean about 15 minutes and it was getting dark. He LOVES to eat things, and unfortunately I couldn't really see what he was up to... I don't know if he ate something, but he started throwing up. Mind you I was alone w/my boxer Roxie & Winston, and thankfully we were super close to the house. I carried him straight to the backyard to get him in his kiddie pool to cool off. I wasn't sure if it was heat stroke, or that he had swallowed something (or got overexcited...) but I checked his mouth and found nothing. I'm so grateful that I had read in this forum about using the lemon juice to keep the white phlegm at bay, I gave him a squirt of that and it REALLY helped. Of course all night I was a mess worrying about him, but he woke up this morning like nothing happened

    On another note... I have a boxer that is full of energy & of course Winston, and sometimes it's really hard to keep them both exercised when the boxer is so much more active than the bully. Winston wants to do everything w/Roxie, but now I'm afraid to take him for walks in the summertime. Does anyone else have this issue?!! I feel bad leaving Winston out, but I feel I have to especially after last nights drama...

    I don't have another higher energy breed, but 1 of my bullies likes to take longer walks and the other one doesn't really like to leave the step when its warm outside, but I cant really leave her on the step so I have to put her by herself inside while I take the other out for a walk. I feel bad about it, but you gotta do what ya gotta do. Winston probably just was chewing on some grass or something and it triggered the gag reflex, mine do that when they are outside and often throw up abit or start to gag.

    Otis and Athena (my dane) like to chase and eat lightening bugs. That makes ME want to throw up. Same thing? lol

    Walks early in the day or evening are fine. I wouldn't do a 5 mile run with them for 15-30 minutes before or after the sun peaks is good for them. It's exercise and the vitamin D is good for their skin. Just remember to always carry a bottle of water with you.

    These guys sure know how to worry us don't they? I'm glad he is ok.

    For me, her name was Abby

    Obtaining a dog license should require more than writing a check.

    Awww Tracey so sorry to hear Winston gave you a scare like that!!! We don't have another dog at home unfortunately, so I can't speak to that. I do know that when Tubby goes to play with his half brother we do have to separate them occassionally so they can have a little rest or else they would go none stop

    Good to hear that he is ok. Maybe he ate a little to much last night?
