Well, there's something wrong with my Toda-Bizzle. It first happened about 2 months ago when we went to NC to pick up a car. We were at a rest stop and a woman and her little girl approached Toda. As usual, he was super excited. Only this time he fell to the asphalt legs sprawled out and he struggled to get up. The weather was nice, not wicked hot or anything. I helped him up, comforted him and gave him water. He was fine the rest of the trip.
We had forgotten about the incident and had thought it was just over-excitement. The next couple times he met people and got real excited, (within the last couple of days), he either fell to the floor and couldn't get up, or he wobbled around like he was drunk. It went away very quickly, though. The vet couldn't see him until tommorrow.
Well, today, we took Toda and Sadie to Gemini Springs State Park and had a great time. Beautiful scenery, water, -cottonmouth snake-, and an elderly lady that called to us from across a field. She waved us over and went right for Toda. "Oh, you are a handsome boy, I love you", etc... I told her how suprised I was that she didn't run away or curse me for bringning a child-killer to the park. She said that her grand-daughter had 2 pit bulls and she loves them.
Anyway, she was giving Toda all this attention and Jason and I both saw it happening again. We asked the lady to excuse us, and I comforted Toda telling him he was okay and to relax. I'm scared at this point, because this is the worst he has been. After water, we're walking back and Toda is stumbling like he is drunk again. It was hot today, but not horribly. He had access to water the entire time we were out, so I don't think that's it. We sat in the car with the A/C blowing on him and by the time we got home, (5-7 minutes), it was as if nothing had happened.
I don't know if what's happening to Toda counts as seizures or not. I hope not. It seems to be only when he gets attention from a stranger. During these episodes, it's like he blacks out to what we say. He is so very attentive to me usually and always looking to me for a command or a look. During these episodes, he's not looking at anything until he calms down. And this is within less than a minute usually. In any case, his appointment is first thing in the morning. Has anyone else ever witnessed such a thing?
