My baby boy fell asleep and didn't wake up...
0700 - Got up to go to the bathroom, I was going in to work late today. Lincoln, my GSD just over 1 year old, put his head on the bed as he always does until I scratch his muzzle and head. No way he's laying down without a pet... He laid down beside me in his dog bed and went back to sleep.
0800 - Got up for work, noticed Lincoln's mouth and eyes were open. He was dead. *total meltdown ensues*
Link was a perfectly healthy dog, no signs of anything wrong, acted completely normal leading up to his death. Absolutely NO signs of distress. Nothing.
We took him for a necropsy, nothing out of the ordinary was found. In fact, the vet and the doctor who conducted the autopsy said he looked fantastic. We're waiting on the tissue samples, hopefully we'll get the answer we so desperately seek.
Miss him terribly...he was sweet, loving, loyal, and a true companion.
Sir Abraham Lincoln of Fairfax
