Ponds/water features can drown animals. A lost dog in NM was recently found drown in a neighbor's water feature, unable to get out.

He had some symptoms in the preceding days but I had attributed them to other things. If I could go back believe me I’d have done things differently.
If your dog is having weakness in his hind legs and is drinking more than normal, it could be a spleen tumor that is bleeding. Other than that, Marlin…Continue
