    I think he might have an ear infection because he is scratching his ear and he cried. I gave him a low dose aspirin and maybe that will help him be more comfy. He hasnt been indicating discomfort but he does get chronic ear infections. He does get really cranky when they are infected so fingers crossed this is an easy fix

    sorry, I always forget which was with you as the puppy...... anyway, Banks was like this with Nitschke (not Cheli) one day they were best buds and playing, chasing, sleeping together. Next day she would want to take his head off -- with her it was all about mood and dominance until we found out about her back issues then she settled in for a few years. My point, is it could be as you said, he is in pain of some type

    I think so because these last two days I gave him low dose aspirin and he is fine. They are best buddies again. I am going to have the vet make the antibiotic wax mold for his ears and that will take care of the infection 100%.

    That's great he's doing better. You've gotten great advice already.

    So the vet came and checked Brutus over. He does have an ear infection and a slight fever. He is on antibiotic oral and drops for the ear. He did display signs of pain when the vet checked his belly around the liver area. So he also did blood work which he said will hopefully tell why he had belly pain. This should explain why he is crouchy. I have to keep track of his little outbursts and if after his medical issues clear up, it continues, he will try puppy prozac! I am sure it will go away when he is feeling better. He hasn't ever acted like this before so I am sure it is due to his pain. I just hope his belly/liver is ok. I will have blood results in 24-48 hrs.

    Glad you figured it out, good call on the ear.

    Puppy Prozac..lol. We have a script for Blue too but haven't got it filled yet. I'm procrastinating..

    I know Brutus is high strung but he usually does great. He is friendly to other dogs and such but he could probably benefit from it just to calm him down a bit. Why does Blue have it?

    He's scared of the city. Sensory overload. We go for walks three times a day so he can go potty, and it's very difficult on him. He never got used to it.

    Brutus is very similar. He is good with things in small doses. He can do short play dates, but we never bring him to the rescue events we do because we know it would be overwhelming to him. this summer we plan on taking Frankie on our overnight boat trips but Brutus would hate it. I feel bad leaving him home, but it really isn't fun for him. Maybe the prozac would help with this
