Panda scared me!!!
I had a weird thing happen with Panda last night. I wonder if anyone has seen anything similar. She had a really busy day yesterday... We went to a friend's house for out-door lunch, and she played a LOT with her three Havanese friends. Then I did a few errands on the way home, including the car wash, which took a while, as I had them do the outside as well as the inside. She wasn't in the car for that, of course, but sat in my lap on a bench outside, while she "people watched" and kept an eye on the busy traffic... neither of which is something she sees often from her sheltered, "farm home". But she seemed happy and upbeat the whole time, happily greeting all those who told her how cute she was.
So... Last night in bed, she started making strange noises in her sleep that woke me up. She snores sometimes when she sleeps on her back, but this sounded more distressed. She doesn't often have dreams that we notice, but Kodi does this from time to time. I reached down to stroke her, which normally is enough to make Kodi stretch, roll over and settle again. She didn't move, and the noises continued. So I put my hand under her head and lifted it a little, thinking to gently rouse her. She was TOTALLY limp. Then I got scared. I had been lying on my side, and she was behind my legs, so I lifted her up to bring her in front of me. Still COMPLETELY limp, and now making no noise. I was sure she was dead, and I'd been hearing her last breaths. I put her down in front of me and turned on the light... At which point she opened her eyes, licked my chin, and wagged her tail. She was absolutely fine. Now, I think she was just in a VERY deep sleep, and "talking" in her sleep. She's acting TOTALLY normal today. But boy, she had ME totally awake and having a heart attack in the middle of the night!!!
