My Dog Had a Seizure(Filed under: The Vet)
Speak had a seizure today. And I don't mean he stole my rope and ran off with it. Well, he did that, too, but he also had a seizure. He seems fine now, but it's pretty scary stuff. He may try to fight me all the time and thinks he's all that, but I still like my (little) big brother.
It happened this afternoon when Speak was sitting in the front hall. Abby looked up and all of a sudden Speak wasn't walking on one front leg and one back leg and his head was shaking. Abby called him over and he responded, so he wasn't out of it, but he kept shaking. She picked him up and called Kevin and they tried calling the vet and rudely locked me in my kennel--apparently they didn't need the services of the only one in the house able to communicate with Speak.
After a few minutes Speak stopped shaking, jumped off the couch (apparently he had regained the use of his limbs), and ran up stairs--presumably to mock me for being locked in my kennel.
Abby called one of her dog trainer friends (I like them, their pockets smell like tasty) and it sounds like Speak will be all right. It could just be a fluke thing, unless it happens again--in which case Speak will have to go in for some tests. But for now he seems fine, soaking up all the attention he can get. Which makes me wonder if the whole thing was a ruse to steal attention away from the new puppy and get pampered the rest of the day. If it is a ruse I'm going to eat his breakfast tomorrow.

Poor Speakums! I'm glad he's all right now. I'll be praying it was just a fluke thing because things just wouldn't be right without Speak. He's quite a guy...and I've never even met him:)
