Hi all, We've had Barraza over a year now and we just love her. She's currently 5 1/2 years old. She has no health issues OTHER than an incomplete spaying. She's been in heat now twice since we've had her, each one falling at the perfect six-month interval. She will be going for a scan in January to locate the phantom ovary as her body spools up for another estrus. My question is: Does your greyhound ever wake up screaming? I'm not talking about whimpering or whining during a dream. I'm talking about wake-the-whole-house-up-give-us-heart-attacks style screaming. It comes out of nowhere, I swear. She's not giving any visible or audible signs before she screams. She would do this very rarely until a couple months ago. Now it's a nightly thing. Yes, you read that right, NIGHTLY. It doesn't matter if she's sleeping in her crate or in her bed in our bedroom. (She only started sleeping in the bedroom around a month ago). The scream is like a cry for help, or that she's in pain. It's a brief scream (maybe two to three seconds) but loud. After, she either goes right back to sleep, or often she'll get up and turn a few times and lie down again and then fall asleep. There seem to be no ill effects, no limping or favoring a side or anything. There have been no other behavioral changes or changes to her environment. What the heck is going on here? In my house we have two theories: 1) She's having a night terror, or 2) she's getting a cramp or charlie-horse. Your thoughts?
