    Good recall @Bella'sMom @sheshistory, Vegas laid around for a week, he still ate and drank but I knew he was out of sorts. I had my nose buried in his ears sniffing several times. I even posted on this site he was just not acting normal but was not sick. I took him to the vet about 4 days after letting him sleep 22 hrs a day he had NO sick symptoms... and YES, he had an inner ear infection. NO ODOR, No scratching, rubbing of the ear. A few days on Otomax an antibiotic ear drop and he was back to his usual self. You might want to get it checked out sooner than you think.

    Thanks everyone!

    I have another symptom to report. So just today - after I got home from some errands - I noticed he had a runny nose. I haven't seen his nose run since he had kennel cough. He's still eating and drinking normally but still seems super tired. He does not have a cough.

    A visit to the vet seems to be in order.

    Thanks! I forgot to add that I took his temp three times today and each time it was in normal range (101.3, 101.8, 101.6) - so no fever, which is good!

    Unfortunately not, he's been so sleepy and just not himself.

    I am starting to think this might be kennel cough again but he's not coughing. If he picked it up AGAIN from daycare, I will have some decisions to make about his future there.

    I appreciate all the concern!

    A few weeks ago lex was the same way very sleepy tired and extra clingy! We had to go to the vet for his mite check up and the dr said he was fine no ear infection or anything. A few days later he became his spit ball self again, maybe he had a bug i don't know. He does get a runny nose every once on a while but it's always clear but that's just allergies. Hope baby t starts to feel better!

    awww. they really do make us worry... I was thinking ear infection also. Duke has experienced this as well. bullies "hide" when they don't feel well just got quiet like you are saying. On a good note.. we can surely handle an ear infection or kennel cough.. the vet ( if so ) will just give some meds.. please keep us posted..

    You know I was thinking about this and remembered that yuna and Jesse both acted this same way when they ate something large (their bed). I think it is definately a sign that something isn't right. Hopefully you find out what it is. Could also be the heat, all of mine are extra sleepy this week but it is HOT!!!
