    Silly Puppy in Crazy Mode

    I don't know how to explain it but every once in a while usually when he comes in to the house from being out side. Mongo goes crazy and starts doing laps around our living room at full speed and won't stop unless you grab him. Some times he will listen when you say go to your bed and he will go in to his crate.

    Does anyone else's silly puppy do this? Just can't figure out what triggers this and I'm sure it's not going to be pretty when he is full size. LOL

We worry about her really hurting herself one day in her slip sliding laps around the house but we have had no luck redirecting her outside mid zoomie.
    I would worry some times also. One time Mongo wiped out in the kitchen so now he keeps his zoomies to carpet areas. Lol

    Too funny. I can't believe how fast they go around and around. Oh and so loud with those big feet. I can't believe he didn't wake anyone.

He couldn't turn fast enough, so he decided to try duck through my legs. Needless to say, I (very suddenly and surprisingly) took a little ride on his back through the living room.

    He was still getting the zoomies at almost 10 years old before cancer took him. Oh, how I miss my Zeuster Rooster.
    LOL Oh that must of been a good laugh after that episode. So sorry for your loss of Zeus. Hope the good memories make you smile.

    Nobody and I mean, nobody told me about the zoomies.

    It happened this morning, after his morning's . Then BAM he hit against the fence, turned around, ran up onto the back porch (thank goodness for the temporary ramp!). Ran off the back porch, back into the yard, flipped (he was on the 20ft leash), I let go of the leash, he got up and ran towards the mulch. Grabbed the mulch, spun around my kids' playground, ran towards the fence (close call), came towards me. I thought he was going to fly up to me. Then, he came to a complete stop and allowed me to retrieve the mulch out of his mouth. He acted as if nothing happened and waited for me to take him back into the house.

    I thought: What the heck just happened?!?

    I must admit, I was nervous about the potential bloat. He had just completed his breakfast five minutes prior.

    Usually, he'd take a nap shortly after breakfast/potty. He didn't, not until 1 1/2 hours later. *sighs*

    LOL I had know idea of Zoomies either. I was starting to get worried about the bloat also. That is when he seems to have them also after he eats

    Our bigest concern is our daughter who is just starting to walk so we have to make sure when he gets the zoomies, shes out of the way.
    Owe that must be scary when there is a real little one. My kids are 5 and 6 so I can tell them to stand back. We were kind of just tackling him or saying to your bed to stop him. He actually has been pretty good lately and haven't had to do anything. Plus now I know about them and I have been just letting him get it out of his system.

    My little guy will be 13 weeks tomorrow and he only gets mini zooms. Afterwards, of course, he needs a two hour nap.
