    Morning All,

    We have been up for about half an hour with her.

    At 5.30am she woke up for a wee, I took her out and then she wanted to play!!! So she went into her normal sleeping bathroom.

    When I got up and opened the door she bounded out jumping on me like she usually does. We went ouside and she wee'd again.

    Then she rolled around on the concrete trying to eat her ears! We came in and she has been playing with her toys and looking for breakfast!

    So, she is MUCH better than yesterday!!! Hope it stays this way!!!

    Amy what you described is very typical of what happens when young puppies go to boarding or stay away from home particularly when they have another young dog to play with.

    So many times I've separated puppies at boarding because they just don't know when to stop. We would separate them for about an hour after eating so their stomachs would settle before they were put back together.

    We would often even separate them the day before they went home so they could settle down.

    We would need to increase the food intake to compensate for the combination of excited nervous energy and increased activity.

    If your puppy didn't come home from boarding worn out, although hopefully without the runs or vomiting, but often they do, then IMO it didn't have a good time.

    Not to say that you dismiss these symptoms, which you didn't & I'm sure are still watching carefully, but she was more than likely suffering from a case of "having too much fun"

OH wanted to give her some but I told him NO! Lol!

    She seems back to normals!

    I definately think it was a case of TOO MUCH FUN!!! Poppy had her own pen and I know Angela gave her plenty of time to just relax on her own. I know she was in the best hands possible with AGB! I know there are some good kennels out there but the original ones I booked her into (great looking website, nice to talk to, helpful on the phone) were actually not that great. So I guess thats what put me off. I didnt know how to spot a good one BUT I did know that AGB would be perfect for Poppy!
