I am in shock since yesterday. Something horrible has happened.

My little black pug, Mia, died unexpectantly and quickly in my living room. She just curved her body to the right and fell over and died.

This dog was so sweet, rambunctious, mischevious, fun, and so loving, she followed her Mommy everywhere and had the sweetest disposition.

We rushed her to the emergency vet, they tried to revive her to no avail. We had them perform a necropsy, which is to find out what she died of, but it was very inconclusive, except to say that she had an enlarged heart and the vet thinks it was vascular death - a heart problem that no one knew about.

Her heart was too big.

We are just so sad. I am crying this minute and the house is horribly quiet without her. I almost can't stand it. I am heartbroken.

Tart,you poor dear.My sis in law had that happen to her cat,it just had a stroke and died suddenly.sounds like that is what happen to you pug as well.

Thanks, Mike. Unfortunately, I had this happen to a cat of mine as well. I am so thankful my other animals are okay, there is nothing wrong with them (so far!) but it's so coincidental and I am actually afraid and feel guilty like I must have done something wrong.

I talked to my vet and they assured me that these things happen. The vet tech I talked to even said she had a dog collapse and die right at the animal hospital and nothing could be done for it, which actually made me feel better because if they couldn't save it, it couldn't be saved. My husband says Mia was immediately gone, but I kept hoping as I drove like crazy to get her to the emergency vet.
Thank you for you comment.:)
Sincerely,
Tart
