    Hey gang --- just back from vet. it is an hour ride for us and well, the kids are popular with the staf so there is no such thing as a quick visit. Cheli gets taken and I do not see him again until we are leaving -- as you may remember, I adopted him from our vet as he was an owner surrender to them and lived at the hospital (over nights with various staff taking him home) so they all LOVE seeing him and have to spoil when we go.

    Our vet agreed, something is off with her, so he did a full blood panel including thyroid (test results in a few days) and I am taking her back on Thursday for a day of 'pictures' x-rays and ultrasounds if needed. Overall, he thinks she looks fantastic and seems very healthy, but with me explaining all that I had posted here, he thinks there is possibility of an underlying issue (other than her back/hip problems), but also said it could just be her age. He owns 9 dogs of many different breeds and had a female bulldog live to be 12 and in his opinion, female bullies are some of the toughest dogs as they get older if they were dominate in nature through their lives. So, he said it is possible she is just getting more bitchy (great!!), he said with how intune we are with our babies, he agrees not to just adjust her current meds -- he wants to rule out anything new that could be surfacing.

    I will post more after Thursday's x-rays, hopefully the blood panel is back too by then.

    I so hope that's all it is, her getting older and crabby. In that video that you posted of her she looks fantastic to me, thank you for the update.

    OH boy! Might just be getting bitchier! I hope that's not true. But on the other hand I hope there is no thing else physically wrong with her either. Sending you love form Uni, Boadie and the gang.
    In order to really enjoy a dog, one doesn't merely try to train him to be semi human. The point of it is to open oneself to the possibility of becoming partly a dog.

    ny thoughts exactly as I was driving home talking with Lewis... I said to him, if she is just getting bitchier... YOU are going to start cleaning her tail and paws. His response was 'ooo, good times'

    I think I would prefer bitchier to it being something tangible health wise. Keeping my fingers crossed that it's nothing serious when the results are all in.

    OH wow Christine, I have totally missed this. That's bizarre that she's acting like that and something's definitely off. By chance did you speak to the vet about Cushing's Disease? Ace had that and was tested for it (it's expensive hit and miss testing too and very hard to diagnose). He started exhibiting very odd behavior and the aggression was part of it. He'd turn into physco dog (more so with Jack) at the drop of a hat. Ace had thyroid issues too and was on meds for that for years. One time his med dosage was changed when we moved and had to go to a new vet. It completely threw him off and he was extremely jumpy and on high alert for everything until his dosage was corrected.

    Sure hope you're able to figure out what's up with Banks.
