    Well BOC family...I lost my dog yesterday. My rottweiler, Duke, passed away appearantly from heat exhaustion. He was breathing really fast but he was always like that. A very active dog...he loved to run and play like most dogs. I always hose him down really good during this time of year where the temps average 100+. We were out in the back yard and he was taking nap after calming down...well...he never woke up. I shook him and yelled at him to get up...but nothing. He could be one stubborn S.O.B. sometimes and I was hoping this was one of those times. I just couldnt hold back the tears as I realized that he had passed right next to me on the ground...

    He was over all a good boy and listened to even my 5 year old most of the time. I miss him alot! My older two kids are at camp right now and I dont know how in the heck Im going to break it to them...

    Keep an eye on your pets everybody.

    Sorry for your loss. My dad lost his constant companion and shadow Sunday morning. He was broken up pretty bad. We don't really know what happened she was only 5 and healthy.

    Dameon sorry to hear about your loss. People that do not have dogs
    do not realize what they are missing and how much it hurts to lose one.
    I lost my boxer in June of 08 and am still not over it. Its hard not to
    miss something, when its one goal in life is to please you.

    I had to break it to my 5 year old a little while ago. I didnt want to tell him until my older kids come home from camp but he kept askling me where Duke was all day. He even whent out in the yard to find him...so...I finally broke the news to him. He just crawled up into my lap and cried himself to sleep...a few minutes ago, he woke up and asked me if Duke was going to come back from heavenand that we should get things ready for him...it's breaking my heart yall. I thought that I was attached but I guess my little one had a pretty strong bond with him too...

    So very sorry to hear of this. I know exactly how bad it hurts. We lost our 8yr old rat terrier in January, & I still miss him so much. And we even have 3 other dogs; but that proves each one is special. Sending good wishes for you & hope things get better soon.
