    He died right in front of me. Unbelievably I was able to bring him back after about 2 minutes of CPR. Took him to the vet and after running tests and everything they called and said he was acting like nothing happened. He now has a heart mumur but she said he may very well live a few more years.

    The events today have been some of the stranger ones of my life lately. I've never done CPR on a person let alone a dog but it just happened. Instinct I guess.

    I'm just glad his time isn't up yet. I'm not ready for that.

    It was a good thing I didn't have to work. Will be keeping him close at night for the next few days. Thanks

    I don't know how to post pics. I see people do it all the time but I'm not hip like you kids.
