I'm sorry to hear that . I know what you mean about the "zoomies" though lol. Cliff does that immediately following his walk for about five minutes then he crashes. Nothing beats an exhausted, well behaved puppy lol.

My husband & I were running a little bit with ours, until he developed a leg problem. I'm definitely not saying it was due to the running, but until he heals, which doesn't seem to be happening - no running for him. Which is almost impossible - he gets the zoomies around the house with almost no provocation. Sigh. Then later - it's Limp, Limp, Limp. We've had it x-rayed etc - said his "wrist" was inflamed, but the reason was unknown. The radiologist said some nonsense about "repeated blunt force trauma....." Huh?? I don't think so... He hasn't been banging it on anything, and I can assure you, nobody has been hitting his leg. I'm assuming that would be what blunt force trauma is.
Ok that didn't help you any - sorry. I had been thinking of starting a thread to ask if anyone else had pibbles that injured themselves playing too hard. (or whatever)
Glad you all are having fun. My Bossy LOVES to run!! (when he could) And yes, he's kind of a scaredy cat too - lol. Jenn

I have been spending time training my pit mix to be my running partner. It's been getting dark before I get home from work so it's nice to have the little guy with me on my evening runs. It makes me feel a lot safer (people don't need to know he's afraid of his own shadow half the time Lol). He's actually much better on leash when we're running than on his daily walks. I'm not sure if he is just forced to concentrate a little more and that's what keeps him from pulling, but I was pleasantly surprised! Anybody else run with their pit?
