She shudders like she is having strokes now and then. She falls over when her back end gives out. She doesn't get up very often and for a while was peeing in her sleep. Thank goodness that has stopped. She still eats like a horse and has a really good appetite but we can tell she is rather confused at times.
She must be downstairs I said. Max is never, ever out front by herself and even with us she needs to be on her leash because we live on a busy street.
My son ran out the front door so fast he didn't even put his shoes on. The dog was far enough away from the house that he could barely see her. There was traffic lined up in both directions while our old girl stood in the middle of the two lanes. Thankfully everyone stopped to make sure she didn't get hit. She happily ran over to the direction of my son's voice and came trotting home with him.
Apparently the side gate was left open, I presume by the lawn guy who comes on Thursdays. This was Saturday and I guess she finally noticed it. Had it been a few hours later she likely would have been hit in the darkness and we didn't even know she had left the yard.
You can bet the lawn guy will get an ear full. She may not have long left but I'll be damned if I want her to die on the roadway.
