Sudden death of little Madison

8514830?1352846302
Madison is a miniature doll faced Maltese.  She died suddenly a week ago.  She was one of four little dogs. We took them for a walk in the morning 10am, fed them and then relaxed most of the day. Then about 6pm fed them again. Madison was outside peeing/pooping. She came in to eat and I witnessed her eating.  Everything seemed normal. So I went to the other room. About an hour later I passed out tiny treats for them.  Once I gave Madison her treat she went to her little bed to eat it. She always got hers first since she was the alpha.  The other dogs were given theirs. Within 60 seconds I see Madison walking across the floor almost stumbling. I picked her up and her bowels started moving.  I continued to hold her and then layed her on her side.  She gave one final kick with her front leg and she was gone.  I do not know if it was a stroke or heart attack that killed her. She wasn't convulsing.  It simply broke my heart. We sat with her after she passed for a couple hours then took her to the pet hospital spent a few more minutes with her and scheduled her cremation. Her remains will be sent to us with her paw print. I am still baffled by not knowing the cause of death.

I am so sorry to read about the loss of your little Madison.  I know it is heartbreaking.  Unless a necropsy were done, probably no way to tell for sure but you have to take comfort in the fact he had a good day and didn't't suffer.  
Be thankful forthe time you had together to walk down the path of life.  I truly believe they wait for us.
