Several weeks ago I was outside working in the yard when I heard our border collie mix barking like crazy. I immediately went in to see what was going on. I found our 11-year-old beagle mix lying apparently dead on the floor in the basement with scratches on her neck. Our border collie was barking at her and had apparently scratched her neck. Our beagle looked as if she had died peacefully in her sleep.
She had gallbladder disease & was generally slowing down. The scratches did not appear deep enough to have caused the death of our beagle, but I just curious about our border collie's behavior.
Have you ever heard of this happening before?
