Hi, My name is Brian and I'm the proud "brother" of an amazingly loving, lively, active Golden Retriever named Chase. This morning at around 6 o'clock Chase, as he does every morning, woke my father up to let him know that it was time for him to go run around in our backyard. We have an electric fence, and Chase is very territorial when it comes to other animals (deer, groundhogs, etc.) passing through our backyard. He usually chases such creatures out of the yard, but never catches them (our family jokes that he wouldn't know what to do if he ever did!). Chase came back into our house seemingly fine. After 2 hours tops, Chase had become very different from the normal Chase we know. He became very lethargic, would not eat or drink, and was slightly unresponsive. It is now 6:15 PM, and Chase has become completely limp. Before he could move his head, now he cannot. Though his eyes are open and when I moved towards him he did wag his tail. Any ideas or thoughts would be great.
*About 5 months ago we found bumps on his chest, but the vet said they were 'fatty tumors'. Not sure If they're related?
Yeah definitely straight to the vet, once Chase is safe at the vets check the yard. Look for anything that does not belong there. In the morning go out and see if maybe there is a new “trespasser” in your yard. Keep an eye out for a while; it might take a few days. Check your home to especially things that are new or any remodeling projects. If your dog is otherwise healthy and suddenly becomes sick always check the environment. Even some plants can make a dog sick being aware of your dogs environment can help your vet determine what is wrong.
Do not walk in front of me I might not follow. Do not walk behind me I might not lead. Walk beside me and be my friend.

Here's an idea, if your dog is completely limp you shouldn't be on the internet looking for or asking for advice. Your dog should have long been to the vet. Please give the dog to someone that won't let it lay on the floor and die without any medical intervention. Good lord.
People, spare me the rude comments. I only said what other people were thinking. If you love your pet you don't let it lay limp and near unresponsive on the floor and ask useless questions to strangers online. *angry*
