[Help] 4 month old Boston Terrier yelping in pain when picked up, not walking either.

Age: 4 months
Sex/Neuter status: Not yet
Breed: Boston Terrier
Body weight: About 11 lbs
History: Healthy happy boy, up to date on all shots and vaccines. No issues whatsoever up until this point.
Clinical signs: He is yelping in pain any time we pick him up. He is not walking or taking steps. He can stand on his own but cannot take steps nor pivot his body (so we stopped, only do it to help him do pee/poo (hasn't pooped yet)
Duration: Started at noon today, so about 12 hours

Our little boy Obi-Juan got his last round of booster shots as well as his rabies shot about 3 weeks ago. We decided to take him to the dog park yesterday for the first time. He had a blast. He was running around, made new friends, was really social, overall a really wonderful first dog park experience for him and for us. We got home and he was fine, we gave him a little bath because he was filthy from the park. He woke up this morning just fine, we took him for a little walk he successfully did pee & poop, he came back inside and we played with him for a little while with his favorite toys. About an hour later he's laying on his dog bed and I went to go pick him up as usual, when he yelped in pain. I put him back down and asked him what's wrong (as if he could answer me) and I tried again to pick him up and again he yelped. I work as a paramedic dealing with human patients so, I tried to incorporate some of my knowledge on how to assess a patient. I palpated him from head to toe trying to feel for any abnormalities, deformities or for him to give me a yelp that I had found the area which is causing him pain but nothing seemed to bring to light where the source of pain was coming from. I again tried to pick him up with 2 hands (one hand carrying most of his upper body and the second hand carrying the lower part) sort of in like a straight line. He didn't make much of a yelp there. I put him on his potty grass to pee and he was able to dip his hip a bit to pee as he regularly does (he doesn't lift his leg) and was able to urinate a really decent amount (no poop since this morning though). I checked the urine, it didn't appear to have any blood or discoloration. I picked him up gently got him to stand on the floor. He did not whimper while just standing. I tried to tell him to come to me and walk a couple of steps but he couldn't do it. Didn't take a step, couldn't even pivot. At this point he still is not whimpering or yelping. I once again gently picked him up (yelped again) and laid him down on his bed because if I just sit him on his bed, he has a hard time laying himself down. I am at a complete loss as to what could be happening. I have a vet appointment scheduled for tomorrow morning but I can't even sleep trying to get some sense of what might be happening with him. There was no moment that I noticed any trauma at the park or at home. This was a completely new onset of pain. I'm at a loss. If anybody has any suggestions or guidance, I would really appreciate it. I'm one worried momma. Thank you so much.

    • 📷7/30/2020Very low rated dojo for Japanese sword, better to attend some of the local Kendo and or Iaido dojos in the Boston area than waste your time at this place. Spent about 4 months their, huge waste of time. Poor instruction, and a lot of negativity.

    • 📷5/21/2020Adding to this matter because there seems to be a lot of misinformation going around, especially the fake praise for Boston Shinkendo Dojo. Forget all the he said she said, the bottom line is this the style is mediocre, it's not a traditional style, the Dojo is not a traditional Dojo, it's small and kind of dumpy, the Sensei is very egotistical borderline Socio path. I spent seven months there than left in frustration ! I would never go back in with caution others to find another Dojo that's the real deal!

    • 📷5/21/2020Not my first choice for a Shinkendo dojo, but I guess if you have to settle, you can try this place till something better comes along. I did, and left for a real dojo! Not sure why my review was moved off the page, but there is clearly something strange going on with Boston Shinkendo reviews here on YELP, all these positive "feel good" posts about integrity are flat out BS. I saw NO indication of this integrity, just a lot of drama at this dojo! CAUTION!!!!!

    • 📷5/20/2020Well I am the only possible former student who has the first name and last initial Of James H. I noticed that there were two bad reviews from a James H. One was in Cambridge M.A. ,and the other was in Billerica M.A. so I find this similarity suspicious? Adding to that Yelp sought to remove one of them is even more suspicious as Yelp almost never does this for anyone ! I know I have interactions with Yelp .Being that I am the James H they may have been trying to suggest ,I would like to clear the air for the Dojo and It's sensei. I have found the Sensei to be a person of great integrity and respect for his students and friends.I find it hard to believe that the various demeaning descriptions depicted online have appeared? I know the woman in her 70s in question and if anything like that happened she would've easily have handled that imagined situation ,and she wouldn't still be there which she is so i can assure you it never happened. My experience has been nothing but the complete opposite. This man has through this whole slander campaign done nothing in retaliation which to me shows his poise in handling an ugly situation with class, and discipline few could summon. I myself think the misunderstanding most could have with any kenjutsu school is the time that it takes to begin to grasp the nuance of the art . When i began I understood it on a very mechanical level and it wasn't until after a year or so my mind opened up to see the places where the basics brought me to ,its hard to describe to the un initiated of sword discipline. But basically to the beginner any sword art takes a while to sink in and begin to make sense ,that time can be shorter or longer depending on the person ,but like most other things in life you have to have faith in the art to see it develop.This has been my experience . As far as the curriculum not being some set standard of this goes first this second etc....? Boston does have this kind of organized curriculum.There are levels of experience.Most classes follow a planned order . However outside of that the classes sometimes vary in instruction continuity which is not a bad thing at all . I found it to be not the traditional American thing . When I was a kid I went to Fred Villari's kempo school and it was this cookie cutter approach ,i can understand how an American would think this was necessary to be an effective teacher in sword or martial arts. Because that is how most do it in USA . However I have had the experience with Nami Ryu James Williams sensei (associated with Tetuzan Kuroda Sensei) and they also used this variagated approach .I had experience attending a School in Tokyo that did the same ,incorporated random techniques .My understanding was that this was used to condition the acquity to handle random situations. This school does not profess to be a koryu It is a new art however it is a good school to attend .

    • 📷4/13/2020Very nice traditional Japanese swordsmanship school, the atmosphere was fun and engaging. The instructors are knowledgable and invested in advancing their students. If you are dedicated and genuinely interested in sword then you will find a wonderful community of like-minded individuals.

YELP ain't gonna HELP the Failed Boston Shinkendo Dojo

YELP ain't gonna HELP the Failed Boston Shinkendo Dojo
For some very strange reason little shifty the infamous and despised instructor at the widely hated dojo Boston Shinkendo, Seems to believe he stands to gain by posting bogus yelp reviews and or having his students like James, a.k.a. Jimmy Yelpster Post clearly marketing style pro BS Dojo reviews!
Do these clowns think they are fooling anyone ? See the real Yelp reviews here: https://www.yelp.com/not_recommended_reviews/boston-shinkendo-boston Here is Jimmy Yelpsters newest YELP nonsense:
Boston Shinkendo Gets Students to Post Favorable Reviews on YELP
Do they put that much stock in Yelp as a way to bring students to what many feel is the absolute worst Dojo in all of New England and probably the United States of America? Does idiot Shafty think even posting a thousand Fake Yelp reviews is going to stop people from learning the real experiences of students there? That dude is delusional and so are his boot lickers. Here is a screenshot of Jimmy Yelpsters latest nonsense touting little Shaffee‘s crappy Dojo. You will notice from His previous fake post that they like to hit on a common theme, that Boston Shinkendo is. Family dojo..... yeah right, a dysfunctional family is more like it. Fact is Jimmy Yelpster left BS to study Tenshin Ryu (A real style unlike crappy Shinkendo) and only came back during the pandemic Shutdown, and also cuz Shafty probably begged him to come back because all the good students quit that crap dojo, So now there are now twoBoot Licker students at BS that do Shaftys bidding “BRINGIT and YELPSTER and they both really suck at martial arts, they probably don’t suck as bad as Shafty but pretty damn close.

Local Boston area business punishes employee's for missing work on 4/15 and 4/19

First post, long time lurker, Umass Minuteman, longtime dog owner.
I wish to remain anonymous as posting this will undoubtedly have some negative consequences to me, as Circles Human Resource is notorious for summary terminating people based on Facebook, Yelp, Boston.com and other posts.
Circles has a large call center in Chelmsford on Apollo Drive that services a major credit card 24/7. On 4/15 several employee with relatives in the marathon asked to be excused to check on family health, two of which were known injured. The management response was salaried staff was free to leave and make up later in the week, however hourly was told they would need to take an occurrence. However build up too many occurrence and you risk termination. With the manhunt on in Boston, today the same has occurred, those employee's in the lock-down area or who cannot access transit were told to take an occurrence, carpool, or find some way in.
Circles has decided that corporate profits and credit card client demands seem to have a greater directive then safety of their employee, adherence to state ordered directives.
I am one of those who cannot commute in today but being salaried I'm in no jeopardy of termination, however people I work alongside are not in the same position. If I call it out like I should; I'll just be fired to shut me up and remove me from influencing others.
I'm in a real shit position with my personal karma right now.

Massive Moving company fakery on Yelp

ABC Moving Cente Movers Alliance, a Los Angeles company, has recently attempted to move into the Boston market and nationwise, posting an astounding number of fake reviews. Their modus operandi is posting the exact same text as reviews that have already been posted for other moving companies, many of them in the Los Angeles area.
If you look at their Los Angeles listing http://www.yelp.com/biz/abc-moving-center-los-angeles , and check out the 1 star reviews, you will find many reviewers alleging that the company attempted to pay them for a review. If you search their reviews by "paid" or "discount" you will find many examples of reviewers admitting they were paid. Some examples:
Check out User "Twizzle" review http://www.yelp.com/user_details?userid=tZhbQAEJy-NAkHNPO0NmDg . An excerpt reads " they also charged me more than what was agreed upon - when I argued and said I'd post a negative review, they made me post a 5 star in order to get agreed-upon rate."
User "Y.Y" states "Do I look stupid? They also took out their iPad, logged into Yelp, clicked on 5 stars, told me to put in my reviews on site. WHAT? REALLY?"....http://www.yelp.com/user_details?userid=s0ShL7VpE6yoJdYjB1FO1g
User "K.M" says "My first review should be taken back. I wrote the review before the movers were actually done because they offered to give me a discount for giving them a review." http://www.yelp.com/user_details?userid=ZknbROVY7E01aLBabsAaHg
User Tom. A says "I was just offered $500 to remove my three-star review. Seriously! I'm still a little surprised in myself that I'm not taking them up on their offer. " http://www.yelp.com/user_details?userid=9X0DMV1WRSbFYHiz_MF0FA
"Owen S" says "UPDATE: I've revised this listing now to 3 stars. The movers were super pushy about me leaving a good review on Yelp. They were obsessed with it, and wanted to check the review before they left. They said I would get a discount for posting a review before paying. It was very uncomfortable, and caused my original review to be more positive. I would question very glowing reviews for this company." http://www.yelp.com/user_details?userid=lh5XE9CvfT52DKbQ0w4cyg
"David S" says " I was skeptical seeing all the five star reviews, and to be transparent they do ask you to give them a five star review on Yelp to get a discount" http://www.yelp.com/user_details?userid=GqRduD65QFLBX-2CeZp6uw
"Myrtle P" says " I think most people are incentivized to give 5 stars, because the mover gives you a discount at the time of payment. My discount amounted to $75/hr, which is 10/hr less than what I expected to pay, but not enough for a 5 star review." http://www.yelp.com/user_details?userid=WFl6_kqNGSFcpSYjv91t-w
User "Christine K" says "ABC Movers has so many great reviews because they discount your bill if you leave a positive review while they are still there. I was happy to leave a good review at the time because the movers did a great job, but I still don't think that is right. I am sure there are plenty of people who didn't leave a 100% honest review because of this. " http://www.yelp.com/user_details?userid=WXz5GvY3HNiWw_pUqs7oPw
"Rina S" says "The mover also stated he would give me an additional $25 off if I wrote a positive Yelp review, although it was odd when he wanted me to write the review in front of him." http://www.yelp.com/user_details?userid=ztIWpc6aTqNSqCNjHyX2-w
NBC New San Diego did an expose on them http://www.nbcsandiego.com/news/local/How-Businesses-Angle-for-Good-Online-Reviews-216699991.html
More bullshit from ABC's affiliate, San Francisco based Market Street Movers User "David C" says "Beware that many of their 5 star reviews are bogus because they give you a discount if you write a five-star Yelp review for them" http://www.yelp.com/user_details?userid=N1yra7f04sSOk5zuW5rdMw User "Terry N" says "They would easily have earned 5 stars had they not asked me to immediately write a review on Yelp for a discount. " http://www.yelp.com/user_details?userid=DlwexC7z88ymAzu45skODw User "Ivy D" says "The main mover asked me to write his company a 5-star yelp review in exchange for a discount, which wasn't even for the Market Street Movers page. It was for Kings Moving and Storage Inc in New York" http://www.yelp.com/user_details?userid=mLcJeK2f2aIOkmgN40QdVg User "Eric C" says "If you are wondering why these people have so many 5-star ratings, here's the answer: they give a discount if you give them 5-star rating on yelp. I have used their services and wasn't impressed at all." http://www.yelp.com/user_details?userid=DKmp0LgveFhbGjpPunfwGQ User "Lucia B" says "FYI I've been offered a discount to write a review, (only $10 off for 2 good reviews it turns out..)" http://www.yelp.com/user_details?userid=A4jAv2X2-BrFmMgX7CJDiA User "Brian L" says "It's also true that they give you a discount ($25) if you leave a five star rating. I insisted on not wanting the discount, since my wife and I both had to do it, but Nino ended up giving it to me anyway. I feel guilty writing this review despite the discount I reluctantly took, but thought people should know the truth." http://www.yelp.com/user_details?userid=7Iejlyq_zdTvgeXc_h7s0w
After further research this all appears to be part of a larger nationwide scam. For instance, user "Mark R's" review of ABC Movers Chicago reads "Today I joined the exodus from San Francisco to Oakland. Overall, a very professional moving day. I booked two movers though, in retrospect, maybe three would have been better as I had a fair amount of stuff that need moving and wrapping. It's the wrapping part where a third person would have really speeded things up. That said, Ernesto and Jack worked their butts off all day. They were very careful and thorough with all the furniture and equipment. Thanks!" Review can be found at yelp.com/user_details?us… Why would someone review a Chicago moving company for their move from San Francisco to Oakland? Because it's all fake. The plot thickens.
User "Ivy D" yelp.com/user_details?us… wrote a 1 star review of Market Street Movers in San Francisco where she states "The main mover asked me to write his company a 5-star yelp review in exchange for a discount, which wasn't even for the Market Street Movers page. It was for Kings Moving and Storage Inc in New York -- yelp.com/biz/kings-movin.... Market Street Movers never disclosed to me that they were sending movers from a completely separate company. " If you go to the photos section of King's Moving and Storage yelp.com/biz_photos/king… you see a picture of an ABC Moving Center truck.
You may ask "Well, where's the connection between Market Street Movers and ABC Moving Center? Look at user Marius M's profile. He only has two reviews , from 6/1/15 and 6/2/2015. One review is for ABC Moving Center - Boston, and the other is for Market Street Movers. In the Market Street Movers review he states "ABC Moving Center just moved my dad and they did an amazing job. Professional, courteous, attentive to every detail and super hard-working. The elevator at our destination was not large enough to fit our couch and without any hesitation they carried it up 4 flights of stairs. The move was affordable and the service was outstanding. I would hire them again in a heartbeat!" This situation is complete and utter insanity.

Can you tell me if I should come to Boston and also plan my weekend? I've literally never heard of: Google, Yelp, Waze, Opentable, or any travel site. Are there bars for my friends? What hotel is best? How do I get there.

Massive yelp fakery in Boston.

ABC Moving Center, a Los Angeles company, has recently attempted to move into the Boston market and has posted an astounding number of fake reviews. Their modus operandi is posting the exact same text as reviews that have already been posted for other moving companies, most of them in the Los Angeles area.

It looks like these are the same tactics used by the company to inflate their rating in the West Coast.
