He fell

I'm really worried and feel a little guilty even though it's not really my fault. Well I was going to bed and I shut the lights off and I had put him on my bed, which he was just sitting.In like 2 seconds after the lights go off he walks to the edge of the bed and falls /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/rotatesmiley2.gif. He yelped of course and he was shaken up about it. I was just holding him and trying to make sure he was ok. Poor thing was scared and walked out of my room to go to the bed in the living room /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/blush.gif. I wish i wouldn't have put him in the bed and shut off the lights ugh. Anyhow he ended up walking back with me and slept fine. This morning he was just a tad out of it, but he wasn't shaking but not as usual. I guess I'll call the vet this morning. I feel awful.

Missed that one.... I hope he is okay now.

I understand the guilt feelings and wanting to protect him, but try not to show him that you feel sorry for him or hug him and reassure him immediately after he falls (they ARE clumsy) or bumps into something and yelps for a few seconds. They are really quick learners and he will associate this with you comforting him. It might interfere with him being a secure pup and make him scared and very fearful.

Again, I understand how you feel, and what I do is just make sure Chloe is fine when something happens and carry on as if nothing happened. She is much much much less clumsy now that she is almost out of puppyhood...

Naturally, if you feel something is wrong - call the vet immediately.

Hugs to sweet little Marco

Great looking pups they were and super good looking beags they are /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/doh00000.gif

I'm glad Marco is okay!
