Hi there this is DRB and I would be happy to help you with this. The signs you are describing can fit with a couple of things....the drooling worries me for severe periodontal disease so a vet needs to do a real good exam on her oral cavity. The standing and staring fits with cognitive disease of older dogs. The last thing I would be concerned about would be some type of seizure activity that does not involve active seizing. This is going to definitely require a vet trip but at least you know the things that your vet should check for. I check my computer each night and would be happy to respond to any questions you may have. Most Sincerely, DRB
