My exploding dog.

by michdwy on 10/9/2010 at 5:34 AM in A strange occurence

Although I have a long connection with our four legged best friends, I have been stumped recently by the very odd occasional behaviour of one of my dogs, Millie, a 7 year old Lurcher,(greyhound cross)an ex coursing and free-range hunting bitch.

Just recently she has done this queer thing, about once a week. Having long legs she normally lies down to eat complete biscuits from her dish. The first time she did it I thought it must be a bee or wasp sting, but could see nothing. Whilst chomping away she suddenly explodes, flies to her feet, scattering her food. sometimes dashes across the room as if from starting blocks at great speed, or just flies to her feet and then flops back down. She starts eating her food again immediately. She doesn't seem to have any after effects at all. Only Boo, her companion and I are startled.

She seems to be in perfect health and is contented. One of my friends has suggested she may have a sensitive tooth. I don't think it is that. She had a full medical at the vet's a month ago, her teeth were examined, and I think the immediate return to eating probably rules out a tooth problem.

I should be grateful for any suggestions. I am sure it is not a serious problem by her general behaviour and normal fitness, but it is certainly puzzling.
