Something is wrong with Gus.
Early yesterday morning he jumped in our bed to snuggle and let us know it's almost time for his walk, just like he always does, and started doing this weird uncontrollable head shaking thing that completely freaked me out. We rushed him to the vet and they said that as far as they could tell for now he's in perfect health, doesn't even need his ears or teeth cleaned.
They gave him a thorough exam (the words, "he's so cute" were said more than once and not by me). They ruled out both the scariest and the most benign diagnoses (seizure due to cancer and ear infection, respectively) and took some blood to do some tests and sent us home. He was his usual active, happy, adorable self- played in the snow like a crazy dog all day, but the same weird head shaking happened again this morning.
We called, but the vet said not to bring him in again yet because he's terrified and hates it there so much, and because they are still running tests, but I'm scared.
Please think nice thoughts for Gus dog. He's only 4 years old!
I'll keep you posted.
