Rosie has a tick (not the bug) in her shoulder
I know that this is a GSD site, but I also gather that there are others with multiple breeds in their house. SO...I'm sending this out to you all in hopes that someone else has a Doxon like me.
Rosie is 4 years old. She's a pure breed teacup miniture Daschund. She's only about 4 pounds and has developed this tick. You know how you get that tick in you eye and it is just annoying...Rosie has one of those in her shoulder. Normally, I wouldn't be worried about something like this, except that she is kind of sulking, won't jump up on the couch, or even stand on her hind legs to have you pick her up, and when you do pick her up sometimes she squeals like she is in pain. This is not normal behavior for her. Normally she is all wiggles and full of energy. She doesn't even boss my GSD around anymore.
She eats, poops, pees, and walks just fine. She will even run. She's alert and not lethargic, but she's just not herself. We keep her trim, because we know that they have back issues, and we don't let her jump a lot, but she's usually like a little spring.
Has anyone had this happen with their doxon?
