My forum namesake, Wilson, died suddenly on Wednesday night. He was walking across the living room, collapsed, and died. No warning, nothing. He was even at the vet Monday for his yearly visit and had bloodwork done due to a little weight loss (attributed to his sister Rosie's death only 2 months ago) and they found nothing. The vet thinks it may have been a brain aneurism; nothing I could've done. I got Wilson when he was 8 weeks old and he was 10 when he died.
Rosie was just as great a dog, the sweetest you could ever meet. I adopted her from the humane society at about 6 months of age. I was really looking for a small dog for my wife but, as I always tell people, Rosie licked my hand and that was that. She came home that day. She died peacefully after a short battle with cancer at age 7 in February.
Man, I miss them more than I can say.
