Hi eveyone! We have a 7 year old lab mix and had something very strange happen day before yesterday. When we got up he would just stand in one place with his tail stuck down very tight to his butt and his head hanging low. His stance was also kind of stretched out. We could not get him to sit or lay down. He would wimper and shake a bit at times. We tried several times to get him to come down the stairs and finally after an hour we got him to come down and go out but he didn't do anything. (We do live in Minnesota and it was cold that morning) He was like this all day. When my daughter got home from school he was back up stairs standing in that same position as earlier. We did get him to come down stairs after many attempts again. He didn't eat anything until we fed him when he was laying down we put it on the floor in front of him. He downed it like no tomorrow. But he would not go near his water. Finally around 7 pm he did go out and did his business. Then the next morning he got up and was 50% better and by 5 pm the next day he was back to the normal dog we know. We did take him to the vet and they didn't find anything wrong. The other weird thing is we did see him do this funny thing with his tail and head about a week and a half ago. But it was only for an hour or so. Just thought I would throw this out there and see if anyone has ever experience anything like this.
