Sick dog

In the past three weeks, Pumpkin has slipped on the ice, fallen off the bed, walked like a drunken sailor, and generally wobbled his way around the house. It turns out he might have idiopathic (sudden onset for no apparent reason) vestibular syndrome AND partial facial paralysis.

The vet also said it might be a brain tumor instead of the above, but I am not sure I want to do a neurological consult yet. So we are going to watch and hope the symptoms resolve themselves, as the linked articles seem to suggest.

Poor puppy!
