    Default This really got my heart pumping...........

    I'm laying on the couch reading a book and Orion is laying between my legs. She starts to do the "I'm gonna puke" sounds...so I quickly try to get her off the couch and into the kitchen where whatever happens..will be easier to clean up. Except I'm under the blanket and she's ontop of the blanket. I can't move my hip outwards to slide off the couch because currently I'm 1) in 2 arm braces 2) have a pulled groin muscle. (yes, I'm under strick orders to NOT return to kickboxing until I heal from my last 2 incidents) Anyways...I finally get out from under the web of blanket and pick Orion up and carry her to the kitchen. I set her on the floor and she is still doing the heaving. She literally falls over. Not a "legs give out" fall over...she stiff-legged fell over sideways. I pick her up and stand her back up only to have her fall over again. So again, I upright her. By this time she's stopped heaving. And she's fine. She never did throw up. WTH?

    Could she have tensed up and locked her knees? I, too, have not heard of a Bulldog doing that.

    All I can think of is she heaved so much she didn't get enough O2 in her, but that only explains and falling down, not the locked limbs. I am glad she is fine. I hope you are after that scramble out of the blanket.

    Always with me

    Hyperventilated?? with all the heavy breathing/heaving, and excitement to get her to the kitchen....just a guess....I hope she is ok today, but I would be worried as well and call my vet in the morning.

    I'm not sure what it was. She def seemed on the verge of , the whole stomach rolling and all...........I'm sure she was tensed up in preparation of but it never happened. In fact, she was absolutely fine. She decided she wanted dinner...and ran to her bowl, sat down and cocked her head at me. She ate with her usual gusto then she trotted over and layed down for her after dinner nap. It was just very very odd the way she fell over. Also, I've never had a dog do the sound and never produce any !!

    That sounds very strange ... but I HAVE had dogs do the dry-heaving bit and not actually . It's happened quite a bit over the years with my many assortment of dogs. It's the stiff-legged and falling over sideways that would have freaked me out.

    How is she today??
