this morning really, Bentley was going bazurk air scratching his back left leg, and chewing on it. I was so upset, wishing the new insurance would kick in now so I could just know. (he doesn't have symptoms, but we do get an ear scratch and a dry shake here and there with him so I just am aware and keep an eye out, only once have I ever seen him air scratch since I had him and it was like 1, 2 then that was it, I think he really had an itch but it was in an awkward spot, hard to reach but still it is scarey knowing how prone cavs are and what is possibly going on with his breeder)
DH and I were getting sick over it, he just kept doing it, chewing, air scratching, finally we were sitting with him and I felt something in his paw fur.. there it was, a chunk of a kids lolly pop that he picked up, I had to cut it out of his fur, he had been trying to shake it and chew it out of his paw for an hour and we thought he was having SM symptoms.. as soon as I cut it out he went back to normal. Dumb lolly pop gave me a panic attack.
Obviously we are still watching for sm. but sheesh, he really had us going. His paw fur is a bit wild right now, he needs to get to the groomers, he is going this Wed.
Why couldn't I have fallen in love with a super healthy 20 year problem free life span breed?
