Our English bulldog died yesterday while she was outside on her runner. She was in the shade, and was in a resting/sleeping position just like she always is in when she takes a nap. She had not been running around much or excercising that day. If she had a heat stroke, would there not be foaming at the mouth, vomit, and a more restless death? I feel horribly guilty, and feel that I should not have let her outside. Normally, I let her out, and she comes to the door and barks when she is ready to come in-she never came back to the door. It is almost like she laid down, went to sleep and died. She was 6 1/2 yers old, and lately she had been staying in her crate, even when the door was open, which is not normal. She also seemed to be drinking an awful lot of water, even when she was inside in the AC all day long. I loved her very much, and I want to know what happened, eventhough I know I will never know 100%. Thank you for any information that you can give me.
