Default Personality change- help

What the HECK happened to my sweet baby girl today? Her personality isn't normal. She's barking and growling at EVERYTHING, she never barks or growls. She'll be 4 months on Thursday. I want my sweet little princess back

Maybe it's the equivalent to the terrible twos in humans? I don't know, I skipped the puppy phase!

Louie changed from being very reserved to being overly hyper and vocal about after a month of us having him.

She found her voice and attitude. I missed the baby phase too since I got Tyler at 8 months. He was past all the crazy stuff.

I can deal with 4 months of terrible 2s.. Actually, we'll start obedience in a couple months, that should help

It could also be just this one day. Gustave has some off days. Recently he had one that reduced me to tears and my husband asked me to go to a spa or something before I called Gustave's breeder about her return policy.

Thank god it only lasts for a day though. It could be that!

Lets pray that's what it is! Although I wish my BF would just offer me a spa day.. How'd you do that again?

Hi all can you please help ... My Albert is 5 months old , up until 2 days ago I had a crazy , biting feet , eating everything in his bowl and begging off people little tear away , the past two days I have had to practically force feed him very little and force water down him , he is playful but no chewing , biting , barking ... He keeps putting his tail down between his legs and coming for more cuddles than normal ... He's not whining and does walk on his lead and sniff other dogs just not as wild ... I have taken the day off work today to watch him ... Do I take him to the vets ? Or just keep feeding him , and trying to get water down ?... He usually poops 3 times a day but past two days , just one poop. ... And very little pees and there bright yellow , his nose is wet and his gums pink ... He's eating cheese , his fave treat , and a handful of his dry food last night ... In reduced to tears in this change ... All I can think iv done different is he had some prawns on Friday night which were in date , and his shampoo was changed to brightening but no rash on skin ... Please help !!! X

Yes please. Do take him to a vet. More experienced members might have different advice but if my dog had all these symptoms I would have seen the vet. Hope he feels better soon.
