    I am so sorry for your loss. As others have said, he did have a great day and you were there for him, which I hope will be a comfort for you and your wife. Re a future puppy, it seems as if circumstances are very good with breeders, you and your wife being at home next year, etc. Just make sure you all feel comfortable with the decision as having a baby is a big change in life (although being bulldog parents has prepared you well!). You might like to think of a dog walker helping you out once a day or so the first months as I can imagine walking two dogs in the winter with a newborn baby in a pram or perhaps in a baby carrier might be tough.

    We're thinking of you and thank you for the lovely pictures of your boy.

    Thank you for your kind words. It means a lot to have people understand the pain we are going through.

    It will be tough no doubt especially with the winters we get in Canada. But at the end of the day, which ever way we look at it, we know that having Bogey's pup , Juice and the new baby will be the most fulfilling for us. I'm researching how to introduce a puppy to a newborn now.. It looks daunting but we're up for it! With that being said, does anybody have any experience with introducing a 5-6 month old pup and a newborn? Cheers!

    So very sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine this. Keep in mind, there is no wrong way to grieve.
    Having a puppy from his line is an opportunity that won't come again. It would be fabulous to have that little piece of him.
    Again, I feel your pain and hope all works out for you.

    Sorry for your loss!!

    Getting one of Bogeys pups sound like a good idea in my opinion but I have never had to deal with two dogs and a newborn all at once. I would think the pup and newborn would have a great bond that would last for many years

It was a warm day but not humid and there was a nice breeze all afternoon. The picnic was in a shaded area, Bogey was drinking plenty of water and even played in the pool with his friends. No signs of distress whatsoever. On the car ride home, the AC was on full blast. At first signs of laboured breathing we stopped to get lemon juice. By the time we got home (12 minutes later) Bogey had a heart attack. He took his last breaths in our kitchen floor in my arms. Devastated is an understatement. He was supposed to meet our first baby in December and look out for them. We were supposed to grow old together. I miss you so much B.Attachment 106513Attachment 106514Attachment 106516Attachment 106517
    So very sorry to read this. It's just heartbreaking. Know that I am thinking of you.

    @Bogey416 Again I am so very sorry for your loss. Please forgive me if this is not the right time, but a few members mentioned that it may have been an underlying heart issue that took your sweet, healthy boy from you and not heat stroke. I am a new EB mom and have no experience with these issues. But if there was an underlying issue that was not diagnosed could the same issue affect his pups?

    I am only bringing this up because the thought of you going through this again breaks my heart. I hope you know this question comes from a very good place.
    May the sun in your eyes be your ONLY problem today! Peace Friends!

    @Bogey416 my heart breaks for you as I know this pain too well. Sending you positive thoughts, prayers and hugs

    rest in peace sweet Bogey... your with all our angels - run free and have fun with all the babies at the bridge

    Edit -- finishing reading all the thread --- go for a pup, the house would be missing something and coming from experience... within two months of the loss you will be in a depression of sorts as will Juice. I say go for it and enjoy the new love. You can never replace, we just make room for more love... a different love.

    I'm so sorry to be reading this. So sorry for the loss of your beloved baby Bogey. My heart goes out to you and your family. It's hard enough to let them go when we know it's their time, and we are never ready to say goodbye, but when it's unexpected it's a shock, and harder to understand and deal with. Thinking about you and keeping you in my prayers.
    RIP sweet boy.

    I am very sorry for your loss and can not imagine your pain of Bogey being taken so young.
    We will put your family in our prayers. May God ease your sorrow.
