We had a 16 year old basset hound that eventually went sort of senile. He was completely blind and deaf. He used to love to be touched, for example he would lay at anybody’s feet just to feel and make sure someone was there. Once he got older he would do this but then all of a sudden get up, walk around the house crying as if he “forgot” he wasn’t home alone. We’d walk over to him, gently touch him and get him to follow us back to wherwere were. He’d be fine for a few but then get up and do it again. He was SUCH a happy dog, and was not in pain so we could never bring ourselves to put him down or anything, he was just going a little nuts. The only advice I have it to just be patient, yes it can frustrating, even annoying, but I’d remember  that she may not have much time left with you. Eventually our dog stopped eating and was vomiting blood and not moving as much so we knew it was his time to go as we couldn’t stand to see him in pain. Sorry I don’t have better advice, hope you figure out how to keep her safe 🙂
