Okay, I may be worried over nothing at all but he is acting VERY strange tonight. Way more restless than usual, even took him on an extra long walk after dinner & jogged with him a bit. But he will not leave me alone & will not rest at all. He is barking & whining at me even though he's been fed, peed, pooped, walked & played with. Poop was totally fine.
Every once in awhile he will cough & do a gag face like he has something in his throat, I had him drink a whole bowl of water in case he ate a leaf or something & it was stuck in his throat. I've looked in his mouth & there is nothing I can see.
I pressed on his belly & he didn't seem bothered. Not sure what else to do. I just get the sense that something is wrong.
It will be a long night. If he is still acting funny in the morning, off to the vet we go. Why can't we have talking dogs?
Hope he is right as rain in the morning. I know what you mean when you think something is not right.

It's never easy when you just "know" something isn't right. Hopefully it is just a passing thing. I have spent many a long night worrying and sleeping only a little. I hope the night passes quickly and tomorrow is better.
Could he just be feeling more frisky/restless with the onset of cooler weather? There is a huge difference in the activity level of the boys when fall comes. In the summer it is so easy to keep them exercised. As soon as we get cooler weather, it gets a lot harder to drain their energy.
Angus does the gag thing occasionally, often after drinking or eating too fast.
Did you check the roof of his mouth?. When Bruno was younger, he got sticks stuck up there.
Don't you just wish they could talk?
Good thoughts on the way - please update us as soon as possible.
