    Continuing our prayers over you, your family and Herman.

    It's tough battling things dxed and known but sometimes NOT KNOWING
    is even worse...my heart goes out to you knowing how scary this is for
    you and how much you hurt knowing he hurts.

    Give Herman soft hugs from me & Brutus


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    I went to PetSmart to find one for his crate but they didnt have one. I have one here that I use that I was thinking of sticking in his crate until I get one specifically for pets - do you think that will be safe?

    Abby has always used mine, sometimes she even lets me use it

    For me, her name was Abby

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

    Sending good thoughts to Herman today. Herman's pretty boisterous so maybe he just pulled a muscle or something? I sure hope so. An Xray will help. I"m glad you're getting one right away.

    I know my Dynamic Duo will be getting a BOATLOAD of turkey today --- in spite of the ensuing, toxic gas cloud I'll be sitting in. I don't care. They LOVE turkey and Bea's a huge fan of stuffing. My little Butterball Bea loves BREAD.

    that's what his breeder says - she said that the larger males are always going through bouts of limping, then they magically just disappear. he's limped before and I know it usually stops in a couple of days, but i just figured he hurt himself those times. i know his joints are popping all the time and the vet told me he's still growing so to not worry.

    @Vicaroo1000 the vet tech said something similar today, she said "Herman this is why you're limping because you're always jumping all over the place!" LOL just as he was jumping up on her.

    Oh that's good to know. I never thought of that but it's true; these dogs grow SO FAST and get SO BIG! Why wouldn't there be "Growing Pains"?! @2BullyMama - spot on!

    I guess it's time for some manners lessons for little Herman. When you've got that handled, can we borrow him so Bo can learn? Jumping is his favorite sport and his love of it is ENTIRELY my fault. I let him get away with it and he's actually rewarded (with negative attention --- but it's still attention) when he does it. I gotta stop that. Jumping up on people around here isn't just rude -- it could mean a broken hip! (I live in a retirement community)
