All about Thumper
Unfortunately the following two scenarios occur from time to time: You’re innocently petting your cat or dog when all of a sudden your pet bites you. The same reaction can happen when you pick up your cat or dog the way you always do, when all of a sudden it bites you. What is going on here? Your pet NEVER bites you, and now that you are trying to show it some love, it bites you. Has your pet gone mad? What might be going on here is pain induced aggression.
It seems so obvious after you bring your pet to a veterinarian to figure out what is going on, but it may be as simple as pain induced aggression. Pain induced aggression means that your pet has exhibited an aggressive behaviour because it is in pain. This is especially common in older pets that may be suffering from arthritis or perhaps one of their internal organs is bruised or diseased.

Hi,my name is Thumper. My mommy found me when I was only three weeks old. I am almost five years old now and I have definitely developed my own personality!
One of my favorite hobbies is eating! I have my own special dog food but I still like human food the best! I also like to take over my mommy and daddy's bed even though I have two dog beds of my own. I am a bed piggy and I love to snuggle with my daddy for hours on the weekends.
I do not like those fluffy balls of fur that humans call cats. Everytime I see one from my balcony I want to chase it, but mommy will not let me! I get along with some dogs, but not all. This stems from the fact that I was attacked by a big mean doggy when I was only one year old. I had to go to the doggy hospital. That was a very scary night for me. Mommy and daddy helped me recover from my wounds but helping me recover from my dislike of other dogs has proven to be a bigger battle.
I would say my most embarrassing moment would be the day my mommy found me. I was so small and so unsure on my feet. I guess you could say I was clumsy. Mommy would put me down on the ground and sometimes I would walk right into a wall! That is where I got my name,Thumper, because I thumped into everything!(Most people think that I am named after the Disney rabbit so I have to tell them this story).
My mommy and daddy take me a lot of places in the car. I love to go for rides, I go for at least one car ride a day with my daddy. We go all over! My favorite place to go is the beach. I am a California dog so I love the ocean waves. I know when we are getting close because I can smell the the scent of the ocean in the air. I start pacing back and forth in the back seat and start whining. This is my way of telling my Daddy to drive faster so we can get there sooner.
I am a very grateful dog. I know I was very lucky that my mommy and daddy found me. I show my mommy and daddy so much love. All of our neighbors say that I am a very spoiled dog. The truth is that I am a very loved dog!
I was the Dog of the Month in January 2005 on Pets.ca! My mommy and daddy were so proud! Thanks for reading about me. Remember to give your dog lots of love every day!
