nowwown Posted September 4, 2007 Report Share Posted September 4, 2007 Hi, Cody and DH and I walk three times a day through our large neighborhood, with Cody on leash. Normally after the day when he's been left alone in a small contained area (laundry room, back foyer) and has slept most of the day, he's raring to go for that late afternoon walk. But not the last week or so. He was on medication for the snakebite to his paw, but that is all over now although he may still have some residual antibiotic and such in his system. Now, on those afternoon walks, he stops. Then lays down. On a lawn, on a sidewalk, wherever. I pull and pull but he doesn't want to get up and keep walking. After about 1/2 mile of this nonsense, I decide to turn around and head home. THEN he becomes an active, energetic, PULL the leash-IWANTTOGOHOME dog. What's up with that? And do I continue to insist on walking even though I am basically pulling on his collar and I think hurting him, especially when he's laying or sitting down on someone's yard? By the way, it's hot but NOT the steam-oven 100 degrees we had in early August. It's still in the 90's but not broiling hot at that time.
