  1. Greetings all ~ This past weekend a dear friend experienced the terrible and abrupt loss of her beautiful dog to an event that she initially thought was some kind of heart failure. She was out feeding livestock that morning while her dogs noodled around the yard, when she heard him give a horrible, awful cry. She got to him within seconds, but he was already dead. This dog was only 7 years old, (going on 8) in the peak of health and an active working dog. Everything about him was totally normal: he woke up in a happy mood, ate a good breakfast, the usual. He didn't run into anything in the yard and no other dog ran into him. There was no impact, no accident, and he had not suffered any kind of injury, illness or overheating in the days previous. The only clue she found was when she took his body to the vet for cremation: he'd suffered a nose bleed. She did not do a necropsy, I think simply because she was so traumatized and upset, but I think we all understand that. He was her prized import, her first open dog, her hopes for the future and just an all around great guy. She's totally devastated and I'm just sick about it. Anyhow, in the absence of medical certainty, the best guess is a brain aneurysm. Has anyone any knowledge of this sort of thing in dogs? I'm just curious, since this was so out-of-the-blue and the dog was until that moment the very picture of health. ~ Gloria
