Jonah has always done that. My Silkys also used to do that. I've read it on this site other Cotons do it also.

I would definitely recommend a trip to the Dr. for a couple of X-Rays. You may want to start on a glucosamine/chondroiton/MSM combo to prevent any changes in the joints and alleviate symptoms of inflammation. They may also send you home with dasaquin or carprofen for pain and inflammation. It's good to have some on hand to use as needed. Have you had any blood work done in the last year you can use for a baseline? I hope your baby is feeling better soon. Good Luck!

Sounds like it's time for a visit to the vet for an x-ray. Could be arthritis...but only a vet can verify this, or something else.
