I wish. Sort of. Sometimes.

Greta was hungry and especially thirsty after a seizure,

As is Rocky after he finishes the post-ictal. My reading of Sally's Spencer post was that he attacked the food during his post-ictal. I may have been misreading her.
but the phase would pass in about 1/2 hour and she certainly wasn't biting through cans or anything like that. That's amazing.

Rocky once chewed up a beer can (not epilepsy related), spitting out every piece, but a food can certainly is amazing.

Matt. Rocky's a Dog.
Gad, neither have I, especially the food binge. Even foody ... a while (maybe his sense of smell was also affected?).

He was unique, to say the least. I took the can to the vet and asked if they'd ever seen anything like it, and they hadn't.

Ah, the memories.

Wow. I've never heard of post-ictal behavior that extreme. And that kind of counters the image of greyhounds as little ... many but I've never heard of a destructive greyhound before (btw, I really liked the greyhound at Westminster last night).[/nq]I wasn't home to watch. How did it do? The only sighthound that seems to get into best of breed is the Afghan. Greyhounds, when destructive, are usually so on a small scale - - e.g., Blue loves to shred paper towels, magazines, etc. It's a mess, but not really that destructive. Spencer couldn't be crated because of his chronic diarrhea (and that's a whole 'nother story). So the dogs were separated when we weren't home, but Spencer was loose. Let's just say that our house was not fun to come home to if Spencer had a seizure while we were gone (which was rare, because he almost always started a cluster during the night).

One time I'd taken DH for some same-day surgery early in the morning, and arranged for his brother to let the dogs out before he went to work. Came home earlier than expected, to see BIL hosing something off in the backyard. He says "somebody had a shitstorm in there." He'd had a seizure, and in his post-ictal wanderings, had walked through his diarrhea many, many times...poopy pawprints everywhere.
How did Emmett check out?

Nothing obvious other than crappy conformation. I may get his hips x-rayed at some point but she didn't find any reason to suspect a problem.

Is he the one that doesn't like to pull, or is that Saber? We've got some pretty crappy BYB conformation in our Sibes. Tasha is cow-hocked, Mukluk has bad knees, and Boomer looks like a rocking horse when he canters.

It was passed over, as was the Afghan, which I really liked, too.

No, Emmett is a machine. I couldn't be happier about his work ethic, and oddly enough he turns out to be a good match in both strength and speed with the much smaller Cinder. He's got straight legs and straight shoulders and his back runs uphill, though, so I don't know how sound he's going to stay as we do more training. He's been fine so far, though, with the only thing making me think "uh-oh" being his pacing.

It's an odd thing, but while there's been great progress in reducing hip problems in Siberians it really does seem like there's been an increase in the number of them with funky conformation problems. Aside from being quite cow-hocked Saber is built like the Tasmanian Devel cartoon character. He's all shoulders and front end and he carries his head quite low. Image is well-built but has funny gaits (she throws her hind end around when she runs), and Cinder is put together quite nicely.

If you mean "attacked" in the sense that he was ravenously hungry, yes. He seemed to always be hungry and nothing food-related could be left out or even in cupboards that he could reach. After a seizure, though, he'd go on a quest for food, and there was no keeping food safe from him.

Rocky once chewed up a beer can (not epilepsy related), spitting out every piece, but a food can certainly is amazing.

Especially with the food still in it.

What are you, the clock police? :}

I'm not the Agent 2.0 Instructor either, but, silly me, I like to help out whenever I can.

There's a reason for my smileys.

It's become an OBSESSIVE and COMPULSIVE behavior for you, Smiley, and they mean pretty much nothing to anyone at this point.

Maybe you could use some ball fetching?
Baaack!

It's kind of unusual to have a period of hypoxia or anoxia sufficient to cause brain damage without knowing it, ... suppose it's possible that Tasha bruised her brain during husky wrestling. I still think her seizure pattern is strange, though.

Who knows what happened? Anoxic brain injuries can be caused by strokes as well. Or it could be something completely different. Damn dogs are so inconsiderate, they never keep us fully advised on what they are up to or getting in to!
