    I'm glad all the tests came back normal.
    Vegas had major surgery 2 months or so before he started having seizures. His neurologist never said the anesthesia could have been the problem. Makes me wonder now. I really hope not. OMG! If that was the case, his epilepsy would be all my fault because I elected to do it to him. This is something I need to look into.

    Baby O has a vet appt today at 9:50, so I will ask him what he thinks...if it's possible. Vegas doesn't chase shadows...but he chases light. He does it because that's what entertaining to do at that specific time. Dogs have the attention span of a gnat. Just because he has toys and goes for walks...doesn't mean he isn't bored. They look for stuff to do....something that sparks an interest. Orion will chase a leaf or a spider or a grasshopper. She will find a frog and stalk it until it finds a place to hide. She will pounce on a blade of grass that is blowing in the wind. She needs to be stimulated ALL THE TIME. It's very frustrating sometimes. Shadow stalking is just something to do that is entertaining. Hopefully he will figure things out and realize it's not very entertaining.

    At this very moment, Orion went from running (speed racer) up and down the stairs, all around the house, up the couch....down the couch, off the couch...to under the cushions!!!!!!!!!!! When Vegas wouldn't chase her, she gave up and has pulled a bone into her kennel.

    My post somehow didnt post! Yes I was happy too! But I still want to know why this happend??? Said we may never know! As the case with Vegas! He said since it happened after surgery it could be a cause...Dogs have diff reactions to anesthesia but he couldnt be sure! The shadow thing is on my nerve and I feel bad for him! He doesnt get it and I feel like he is torturing himself! I moved the furniture so he cnnot get to the corner anymore! Let me know what your vet thinks about that! I have tried to do some research but it doesnt say anything about long term effects...Dogs have had seixures after surgery but didnt continue forver???

    @Poppy recommended the thunder vest for Aldo because he is hypervigilant I was reading reviews in amazon and somebody mentioned his dog wouldfreak out with shadows and storms and the vest had helped. I wonder if Brutus has the same issue and it's just anxiety maybe that vest will help.

    Eagerly and Nervously awaiting the homecoming of Bruno Cannoli

    Thanks Ana! I just looked at it on Amazon and it has great reviews! This could be something that we could try! He only really does it at night time if friends are over (which is always) and they sit on the couch! (one particulr area) @Lucy-licious mentioned OCD and I strted researching and found alot of articles about shadow chasing. We are going to our regular vet in 2 weeks for his 1 year and we will speak to them about what we can do! I dont want to give him meds b/c I feel its something we can fix together by me working with him!

    Maybe he's seeing ghosts?

    I've heard great things about that thunder shirt.

    For me, her name was Abby

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

    This is what we refer to as 'Zoomies' out of the blue, Gizmo just kicks in the afterburners and runs crazy for about 3 minutes - then pants and then crashes

    It usually happens immediately after she.. ah... 'Downloads' in the yard - she tears through the house, I guess saying 'Whew ! I just dropped 20lbs and now I'm LIGHT and can RUNNNNNN ! ! !' hee hee
