Hey guys n gals. I got off work this afternoon at 5, and of coarse when I get home, both the dogs are waiting at the door. I let them out, and they both grab the frisbee. The temp today is 18*c (not sure what that is in Farenhiet..any how, I played for a couple of minutes, and then had to go inside to do a few chores and Rene continued to play for probably max of 10 minutes. He let both dogs in and they got a drink of water. thats all fine and dandy. I am getting ready to go uptown, and Pyper is standing with her nose in the corner of the door panting and it looked like she was sucking the cool air from the crack. I open the back door for them to go out and when I get back to the porch, Pyper is just standing there. I called her, and she didn't move. I called again, and she just stood there panting, so I walked towards her and noticed she was almost bracing herself to keep from falling over. I held onto her, and she was swaying like she was gonna faint. I laid her down and she just kept staring straight ahead panting. I got some water, and put some drops from my fingers into her mouth, and practically poured the rest of her bowl over her. I soaked her front and back feet and turned the fan on her. She wouldn't get up. She did this for about 15 minutes, and of coarse when I called the vet, all she said was he would call me back, which, he still hasn't. She is fine now, and of coarse wants to go back outside, but I am not letting her go out.
Its nice out side, but its not a scorcher. LIke I mentioned above, its only 18 outside. She only played for a few minutes, mind you....if anyone knew Pyper...she runs flat out and she runs hard and fast. I have just never seen her do this before. We have played them out while training, or just having fun, but she has never almost passed out on me.
Is this from playing outside when its warm? We didn't do anything out of the ordinary with the dogs today......what happened to her?
She is eating fine and drinking as well.....
I'll tell you one thing....I really didn't like that one little bit. I don't know what I would do if something happened to either of my dogs.
