Since I adopted him, Comet has had occasions where his back legs seem to have a mind of their own and they don't always go where I know the old boy's brain is headed. But tonight we were playing fetch the frog for the second time and he simply collapsed. He couldn't stand, couldn't get his legs under him and was panting heavily. I assumed the panting was pain, and I was able to lift his hips and get his legs under him enough to steer him to his bed. He recovered after about 10 minutes and was able to go outside. I gave him one of Jester's meloxicam pain pills and he is sleeping solidly.
Anyone have this experience with their old dog? It's a bit upsetting...
