Hi:

I have a 3 year old small standard poodle. When she woke up this morning she kept falling over as if something was wrong with her back legs, she pooped a small bit in her bed and when she finally could walk dribbled a little urine (something she would never do), but then she was finally able to go outside and was perfectly fine and very frisky, running and jumping like always. She seems fine now. Could her leg have fallen asleep? I've called the emergency vet (my own vet's office is closed for Thanksgiving) and they said just to watch her. But I'd like to know if anyone else has experienced something like this with their dogs?

Could be a back injury, pinching a nerve. Especially if there is no inflamation in the leg/s. I'd go to a chiro.
