It was then that Finne received an initial diagnosis — the vet suspected Kolento had suffered a stroke.
"She said it was probably something neurological, something with the brain," Finne recalled. "It was heartbreaking to hear. I thought he was gone. I thought I was going to have to say goodbye to my dog."
Kolento remained under observation at the vet for the next several hours, as a devastated Finne readied himself for the saddest news. But then:
"Then the vet called me and said she wanted to do a drug test on the dog. She asked if there was any chance if he ate some cannabis. I answered, 'No, definitely not,'" Finne said. "Then the drug test showed that he was positive for cocaine, methamphetamine and amphetamine."
