Sorry I've been a little quiet this week...my human was busy with the kids' first days of school and yesterday and today have been a little strange for me.
Yesterday started off just like any other day, but around lunchtime I started acting a little "off"...skittish and velcro-y. My human doesn't recall any loud noises or me hurting myself on anything so she thought I might be sick. But I 've had no problem eating/drinking and have been peeing/pooping (sorry if TMI) like normal. She palpitated my entire body to see if there was any soreness but nothing. And when she gets the tennis ball out, I snap out of it and become my old retrieving-fool self outside. But when I get back inside, I get all clingy and anxious-looking again.
The weirdest thing is last night, when she let me out for my final pee of the night, I stayed out for a long time and wouldn't come back in when she called me. My human got very worried that I had somehow gotten out of our fenced back yard and started looking for me in the dark with a flashlight. She had just started searching for me when I decided to come out from wherever I was hiding. I've never done that before so it's worrisome.
I'm not lethargic, and this morning when the family came downstairs I was my usual excited self, but then I went back to the worried behavior. My human is debating whether to take me to the vet and hope whatever scared me passes.
Have any of you ever experienced this?
