My Grandoggy, Jasper's, front leg went out of place when he jumped down from the couch. He limped for a few seconds and then was O.K. He didn't act like the leg was hurting him when I palpated the leg and joint. The affected joint seemed to be the shoulder of the left leg–closest to the body. He is 5 years old. What could this be?

Jasper Doesn't Like Dry Dog Food!
My granddog, Jasper, doesn't like dry dog food. He eats it just to stay alive, I guess. Is there a really good, safe, and nutritious canned dog food that I could mix in (just a little) with the dry food? I'm so hesitant to try any dog food these days, so I need some advice! TIA (from Jasper, too)!
Bothered by heat
Is it a basenji trait to be bothered by heat? My one-year-old granddog, Jasper, slows down if it is a hot and humid day and pants a lot. He even laid down during his walk! He seems happier if we play inside on hot days.
Berber carpet eater
My Granddog, Jasper, turned one in March. He is a rescue dog. My son has trained him very well, and he is perfectly behaved when my son is home. However, Jasper digs and chews the carpet (berber carpet which unravels beautifully!) once in a while when my son is at work. During the day, Jasper is confined to the large carpeted basement room complete with a doggie door to a large fenced in back yard. We were wondering if this might be a symptom of separation anxiety behavior. Jasper has the run of the entire house when Randy is home and NEVER touches anything in the house except his own toys!
