it happened to my 9 1/2 yr old 2 months ago

hi jcglfer,

my sweet 9 1/2 year old died suddenly on April 2, 2018. I never thought to go on this forum, but honestly, knowing this has happened to others would not have made me feel any better. we took dexter to the park every day where he ran and walked off leash. he was perfectly fine that day....towards the end of the walk, he saw his friend and ran towards her. on his way back, he just collapsed. I ran to him and he was pretty much gone right away. my husband and I were in a total state of shock. we did not have a necropsy because it didn't really matter to me, he was gone and it wasn't going to make me feel any better to find out why. my husband and I were devastated and we were crying all the time. as everyone here feels the same way, dexter was the best dog on earth. after a few days, we decided we needed another viszla in our lives and my v puppy. bode came home on Saturday. he's acting like a true viszla and is sleeping on my lap while I write this. we will never stop missing dexter.

I am so sorry for your loss, it was horrible thing to go through

I'm so sorry for your loss!! We're definitely still struggling. We finally emptied her dog bowls out last night. We plan on getting another V but I think are going to wait a year or 2 since we have a 1 month old child at home.

Hi,

New member here, sadly we lost our Vizsla 'Archie' last Thursday very suddenly aged only 5. Archie was found at home with some faeces in the room which was extremely unusual. He had collapsed, the vet ruled out heat, and eating something foreign all airways were checked no vomit etc.

They believe it could have been heart issues that went undetected.

I totally understand your pain, my wife and I are devasted by this and at present don't know what to do with ourselves.

I am so very sorry for your family's loss.
Five is so young.

Not all those who wander are lost.

Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.

Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.

OMG I’m so sorry for your loss!! It’s getting easier for us but there’s still so many things that make us choke up...going to the bathroom and waiting for her to barge in or opening the pantry door and expecting to see her sitting there when I close it waiting for her milk bone!
Fortunately and unfortunately we have a 3 month old baby boy who is keeping us distracted. It’s been so devastating but I can’t imagine if we didn’t have the distraction. We’ve been writing all the funny things Zepley did in our phones so we will never forget her!!

I hope you two are doing better!! We finally have most of her belongings in a large bin!! I recently found a couple new toys we had stashed away for her.
