nowwown Posted July 16, 2007 Report Share Posted July 16, 2007 We met a couple this weekend who lost their 5 year old BC last Spring. After offering our condolences, they said it was sudden and horrible. It seems that the dog loved "attacking" the water hose and going after it time after time. Well, they always thought it was very funny and cute and they "played" this game with him on hot spring and summer days. One day, the dog got lethargic and tired after about 20-30 minutes of this type of play, and the couple thought the dog was just tired. So they put him in his crate to rest, but then heard the dog having coughing/seizures and was having trouble getting breaths. So they called the 24 hr. vet, then rushed him there, and the dog died that same day. The vet said his lungs were 75% filled with water. Arrggh!! How awful! We let Cody play with the water sprinkler and hose and we didn't even think of the hard shot of water filling his lungs! I guess we can't do this anymore. Any thoughts?
