First, I have a good vet and my dog will see the vet on Tuesday at 9AM.

He is four years old, in good health in general, a few digestive problems but that has been resolved. He went to the groomer yesterday and then had a good long playtime in the dog park. He was tired and happy--came home and ate his dinner, slept soundly throughout the night. He was in good spirits this AM--ate some kibble and then started trembling--for about 5 minutes--there are some resource guarding issues--he is sensitive, small dog. It stopped and we went for a walk---happy, wanted to play and then rest again.

I lost a lhasa at 14 due to seizures, brain disorder of some kind--blind and perhaps deaf. Totally devastated--I cannot allow that to happen to another dog. The vet will be thorough--no problems there.

I just wonder why he would tremble like that--twitching limbs --when I reached to pet him he wouldn't let me.

any thoughts?

I would have guessed the groomer except he was fine for a good while after you got him home and into today. So maybe seizures? Maybe some pain from a strained muscle that didn't start to hurt until today? That might be why he is trembling and doesn't want to be touched. Is he limping at all?

he's running around wants to play--yes, a trip to the groomer is 'unsettling'--stimulating to be around the other dogs in the cage---his groomer is great--Mom, scarred him with her poor grooming skills--really won't let me near him with scissors. We have 'stress' at times in the household--very sensitive, very protective--he will go into high alert at a sound he doesn't like. um--dogs are like their owners--i've heard that. This has been quite a week for me.

the Vet will help us--we certainly need it--lol

Hmmm. My yorkie shakes when she is not feeling well. It took me a while to figure it out; but if her stomach is upset - she shakes. If she has a burr in her foot and I haven't figured it out for a while - she shakes.

Hope your vet can get it all straightened out.

Josh is fine. ? I paid the groomer to express the anal glands--specified that is was very important.

the vet checked--hadn't been done. paid again. bloodwork taken---liver and other internal organs. hope he is ok. food/diet ok.

he really just shouldn't have to live in the city. in my area they are working on the dog park--Phase2. when it will be completed no one knows. in the meantime --we can walk through the woods--wonderful for stress management for animals and humans. he went monday --had a great time--ran like a fox.

there is a new type of parasite in dog's fecal matter--CDC. clean up your dog's poop--keep it away from kids--wash your hands. i signed and agreed.

if he gets near any other dog's deposit--who knows. i won't try to put boots on him. and i'm not certain i will have time to bathe him after every walk. i know i should---clean the house, cook food, wash clothes, generate income to pay the vet and others. not much time for chillin'. if anybody knows how to do all this without killing yourself ---that would help my dog.

what about my shoes--to think of all that may be on my shoes---i stay current with my shots and keep a close eye on my dog--current shots and flea/tick and heartworm meds--i just don't think i can do more--he sleeps in various places. never a spot for a crate--how i wish that had been possible. the entire house needs so much. just keep on doing what you can. until i drop dead i will.
