Default Our handsome baby died Tuesday...

He wasn't even 1 year and a half yet. He was being boarded at a camp bow wow facility. Day care and play all day, time for naps and snacks and meals then go to sleep around 7 to 8pm. We boarded him last year when we went away too and they absolutely loved Bruce. Last year at got phone call while on vacation that he wasn't eating, they ended up just having to hand feed him and put gravy on his food.

This year we get a call on our 5th day on vacation that he passed away on his sleep. The day care was very upset, paying and handling everything for us while we're away. It's very devastating to get a phone call like that, when you're away and can't do anything to change what's happened. My husband is very upset, me i can't stop crying.

He was the best dog ever and gave the best hugs and kisses. Just very lovable and never met a stranger.

The autopsy showed no outward cause of death. No bloat, heart was good, all organs were good. However the vet that did the nepcropsy doesn't perform it on the brain nor send out for tox screenings. He was diagnosed with idiopathic epilepsy neck in March and was taking his medication daily and only had a small seizure since then.

The camp says he showed no signs of a seizure while sleeping, he was curled up like any other dog sleeping. And just died. Vet says a heart attack possibly. How can an otherwise healthy happy dog have a heart attack at one and a half?

This is awful. So sorry for your loss. Sometimes things happen and there is no explanation. I'm sure you gave him the best year and 1/2 though. My condolences.

Thank you. We did. He was such a happy boy. We couldn't have asked for a better dog. After our grieving, we definitely want another boxer. He was our first.
