Yes, it's true. Gunther man is on an exercise hiatus. We'll be taking a little break from bark park...
Excuse me? What is this I'm hearin' about no bark park?
We've been going to bark park everyday and I couldn't help but notice Gunther seems to have a harder time than usual catching his breath while running around with Stella and Mr. Wilson. This afternoon we had an appointment with Dr. Stephens. We told him about Bandit and the great Pug advice Bandit's mom, Paula posted. We also showed him a video of Gunther playing and the sounds he makes when he's breathing loudly after running around.
After watching the video and examining Gunther, Dr. Stephens agreed that there is something going on with his breathing. He got a chest x-ray this afternoon, which ruled out any problems with his lungs so that was good. However it didn't hide the 4 small rocks he ate earlier this morning (don't worry, he always poops them out). Tuesday he'll go back to the vet to go under anesthesia so they can look at his throat and windpipe with a scope. At that point, Dr. Stephens should be able to see what is causing some of his breathing difficulty while he's exercising.
So, if everyone could keep Gunther in your thoughts and prayers that he stays safe while under anesthesia and that his upcoming tests show nothing serious.
We all have a very positive attitude. That is all of us except Gunther. He is extremely upset about missing out on bark park for the next few days...
