Ughhh that sucks man. My dog is starting to act weird, he's a 4 yr old black lab. Sometimes when he is laying down on his bed and we ask him to get up and he growls. Makes me nervous cause we got a 2 month old....



That might have something to do with it.
Dogs change when kids come around.


I would get him thoroughly checked out Dave.
Might be something wrong with him.

My four-year-old bulldog, Jumbo, still has his "ego nuts". Whenever he does something bad, and I call him out on it, he growls at me like he's a bad ass, haha. I'm all, "WHAT?!?!?! ARE YOU GROWLING AT ME?!?!?!?! fugIN' SIT!!". And he stops and does.

Now, my last dog was a Jack Russell. He was real old. Died of brain cancer. But he got very cranky in his old age before the end. He'd be sleeping and I'd accidently bump him with my foot, for example, and he'd jump up and bite my foot HARD. Then run off because he knew I was pissed. I miss that silly bastard. Cancer is evil. Took one of my cats too.

I've had pets since I was in first grade. Lost count a long time ago of how many times I've been bitten, scratched or something. I think probably only one dog and one hamster didn't bite me at some point, but in nearly all cases only once.

Not true of the birds, sadly. They still get bitey sometimes. They do a lot less damage than a dog could, but it can still hurt like a dickens if they catch you right.

Dimbee-

your dog is in pain- either arthritic or something else- get him to the vet asap and get him checked out and if needed some pain meds-

my dog cant take the usual dog pain meds because they make her sick, but when we tried Tramadol we found it worked for her and she tolerates it well. also the chodroitan glucosamine with msm helps arthritis

good luck

That sucks man. My dog is getting really old too. When I tell him to lay down he growls a little bit.

hate to be cold Dimbee, but if the dog is 13 today, what are the chances he is still around by the time you and the Mrs. to be have kids?


other than that, yes, bring him to the vet, something is pissing him off and it ain't you!

I gotta agree with everyone else, he's more than likely in some type of pain. At that age I bet it has something to do with the hips.....Just get him checked out as soon as you can..Don't know where you live or if you have a vet but if you are in Charlotte, Stonecrest Vetinary Clinic is great!

Thanks everyone, for your thoughts and ideas. My fiance works at an animal hospital, so he's well-checked and everything. He takes daily meds and vitamins (like Glucosamin Chondroitin) to aid with his aging. He has a fantastic diet and is well-loved and taken care of. He's acting totally normal today, so I'm not beating myself up over it anymore. Just chalking it up to him being old and cranky. If it becomes a trend, then I'll start worrying.

Again, thanks everyone.

I agree with the others, could be a pain issue. He is getting up there in age for his size....sounds like he has a great home with you and you have taken wonderful care of him. Any chance he may be having hearing problems? I have also heard of a dog getting a dementia type thing.

As you are doing, I would watch him...and if there are any other changes/anything unusual...get him checked out.

Hope all is ok.

Meanwhile, my index finger is swollen to about double the size of the index finger on my left hand. Good times. :lol:

Damn he's cute as hell. Too bad he's a Bears fan.

Glad he's okay.

Speaking of that....my dog is about to turn 13 and she does not act like she is in much pain but I can tell she is slow to get moving and I am sure the cold weather is going to take a toll on her joints and such. In terms of helping to relieve any discomfort what can I give her to help with this? Is it something I need to go to the vet for or can I just order stuff from the internet or pet store?
