miamorgana, I once watched a dog die of a heart attack at a show. A beautiful 3 year old Old English Sheepdog it was. I was accross the ring from it, admiring from afar, and it simply turned its head around to the side and fell, dead when it hit the ground. And, a friend's Dane just lay down in the sun for a sleep one day and never woke up. So, it can be sudden. Also, we had a Hackney horse drop dead in the paddock, no kick or scuff marks where he fell, and he had just a trickle of blood in his nostril. I think it can be a blessing for them to go so suddenly, even if it is an awful shock for us. You have my sympathy and I hope someone can give you a satisfactory answer.
