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.
