I know it's been a few days since I've written and I promise I will later, but right now I am so upset.
Chucky is sick. Really sick!
Last night he was panting and kept turning his ears back and was pacing. He was in obvious distress. He peed on the floor. I thought he was just being impatient, so I hollered at him.
When I finally got to a place where I could stop the truck, I took them out and he peed a lot. Then he got back into the truck and drank a lot of water. He was still panting and pacing. I couldn't calm him. After about another hour it was Pops' turn to drive so I went to bed. Chucky got on the bed and went to sleep. He slept good until this morning when I got up but I could tell, he was sick. He wasn't walking right and seemed tired and weak.
I took them out to pee and he went, then when we got back to the truck, he began to shiver and moan. I put his sweater on him and I covered him with a blanket and held him. He stopped shivering after a while  but he will not do anything. He won't eat or drink. He is sleeping calmly, at least it looks calm to me, but he peed on the floor again and will not move around or respond when I call his name. If I pick him up, he is listless and wants to lay back down.
His belly is hard and bloated too.
I feel so bad. I don't know what to do for him. I will not take him to a vet and leave him there.
I worry so much. He has been my faithful friend for almost 14 years.

I am so glad he's okay now. I know how scary it is when your dog is sick!! Barney chewed a rug and ate a piece of nylabone one time and had to have emergency surgery. It got stuck in his intestines. Glad he could get rid of that foam by himself!!
