I forgot to say that she behaved this way on Monday night, but not so intensely, Tues and Wed seemed fine. Hi, My 11 year old, 70 lb., shepherd mix can't seem to sit still inside only. She'll sit for 2 seconds then maybe try one more place for 2 seconds then ask rather urgently to go outside. If she goes in the front, she sits on the porch just fine or in the grass, or once for a long time in a bed of ivy (fairly unusual for her to lay there); in the back she sits in a hole she has previously dug in the garden. (She usually only sits in the hole if we spend extended time outside-I think to keep cool.) We decided to try walking her around the block at 1 a.m. and she seemed fine, except that she insisted my husband and I both go, which she does sometimes, but not often. Since then, she's been out in the mud hole all nite, except every hour or so she comes in, sits next to me on the couch for literally 2 seconds before booking it outside again (she usually sleeps in a bed on the floor of our bedroom). She is not bloated, or limping, or not eating. She seems fine except she looks a little lost and confused. On the walk, she was in full stride chasing a cat and seemed completely normal. She acts totally normal except when she's in the house.
