I'm getting worried because my 5 1/2 month old yellow lab puppy seems to limp in his back legs after playing with the neighbor's pup. The other puppy is a Portuguese Water Dog and is 3 months older.
His name is Gunnar. Gunnar has energy like I've never seen before. He almost goes into another zone when the two of them are playing. He runs and crashes into Mason (my lab) and often knocks him over.
Is this normal puppy play? Can it hurt a puppy? Or should I be worrying about hip dysplasia? The Portie never tires and can just keep going and going. When we take Mason to the beach by himself to run he doesn't limp like this later on. Should I stop the play sessions for awhile? Any ideas? Thanks, Em
