My dog passed away at 12 years old and 4 months and 12 days

My dog passed away at 12 years old and 4 months and 12 days this past Saturday. A lab/chow mix at 60 lbs. two months previously the vet said his kidney levels weren't right but after 30 days on azodyl 2 in am and 1 in afternoon his levels went normal. He ate, walked, slept, everything was fine even Friday night! Sat morning he didn't want the morning pills wrapped up in turkey like he usually loved. He threw up and I cleaned it up, rested with him for a while and then we went outside. He hunched to poop but he couldn't, did that twice and then he looked at me like he had no idea where he was, what he was doing. He collapsed at the front door and his breathing became shallow, his gums and tongue pale. I touched him, dug my nail into his paw and he never flinched. What happened to my dog? :(
