Default All of a sudden seems more needy?

So for the last 2 wks I have been thinkg. something is wrong w/Buckles? I always do anyways, but the more I observe her I dont think its a medical problem. @ first I was like ok she has a uti and then diabetes, is she drinkg. more water?? I can say for sure, she hasnt lost any wt. she actully put some on over winter, being my fiancee is laid off so he is home w/her every day, so I took 2 urine dip stick from work, (I work @ a Dr's office) and did that 2x, no infection,blood,protein,ketones or glucose (sugar) ok so that's not it (i dont think)
So as I observe her more, she is my constant shadow, more than ever, very needy. We play, we are in and out allllllllll day it seems, take walks, go for rides, she is always bothering me I cant even get a break, sometimes I go in the bathroom and shut the door for a break but of course I come out and who's there waiting....Buckles.
The last thing I noticed but not all the time is she seems like she doesnt want/cant get up on the bed w/me when I know she can?

All your thought and suggestions pleaseeeeeeee

How old is she? Ya know its Odd because I was going to post a similar post to this except its now the opposite....... Newt used to be clingy.... Shes now Almost 2 and a half..... and We went through this bought of bleeding poop, which is now gone(crossing fingers) and all of the sudden shes not wanting too much to do with me. Like a shadow before, like yours ....couldnt leave my site, I had to drive somewhere to get her out of my rear... I mean I spend 24/7 with her ....... she goes for rides and walks just the same and doggie park on weekends... swims when water is nice enough..... Thats why I ask you her age...... I always said when Newt was acting like Buckles "There she is again"... Im wondering if its Phases they go through?.... I hope you get some cool answers and I'll be watching this thread...... when they dont follow you anymore....... you then ask why! lol.... I watch Newt like a Hawk too....... I wonder if there is a Boxer Addict Rehab for ppl like us?

She will be 3 3/21/09. So today we did 2 walks, petco, visiting grandma's and now she's seems to be resting. I hope some others have the same thing so we can get some ideas. I would love a boxer addict rehab

My girlies have always been more independent, not so clingy with me, but Angel has gotten the same way as Buckles since we put Samson down...I was gone last week and Marq said she wouldn't eat!! She wanted nothing to do with him either..It could be a phase that she's going thru, I know it does get a bit annoying at times..I'm not used to my girlie following me everywhere

Mine switch off sometimes..just depends on their moods I guess, but I can tell you that if I'm upset or stressed at ALL, Titus picks up on it and is all over me. He will NOT leave my side, won't even stay outside if I'm not out there when I'm like that. They are very perceptive...hoping that you're not stressed or worried about anything!!

Yes mine switch on and off too. I guess their just like humans in that way as well. Sometimes they want more attention and cuddles and sometimes they just want to be left alone

Keegan is always clingy but Kiah goes through stages, right now she is clingy and wants all of my attention.

Zulu is without a doubt my perm shadow, i go to the bathroom he is there, i go to the kitchen he is there, i go to the yard he is there with me. . .seeing what im doing and what he can do to "help", which is usually getting himself into trouble of course.

But these Boxers are quite needed and very nosey . . .but the minite that Zulu isnt there, i go find him hahahahahha. . .i love my shadow velcro Baby

Default Re: All of a sudden seems more needy?

I worry ALL the TIME , My friends and family and Specialist said I obsess over her.... I cant stop thinking there is always something wrong, usually there is....... Like a sore on her toe, a lump on her neck ( was a Hysteo).. she had blood in her poop.... Im always freakin stressed out and I always think when she acts a tad different something is wrong. She looks at me and sighs sometimes or lets out one Whine... automaticly I think "OMG somethings wrong"... I been like this since she broke her leg at 4 months old...... I cant help but to worry!
As far as the water, some days Newt only drinks once......... and other times she can empty the bowl. I worry about that too... Maybe we need a Xanax? lol.......
