      I am so sad to report this.

      At 6:02AM, my Bruce passed away in his sleep. I was lying awake in bed, I had just looked at the clock, and I heard Bruce make a weird noise, followed several breaths. I thought he was dreaming. After a minute I heard nothing. I turned on the light and looked at him. I saw no breathing. I jumped out of bed and touched him softly, not wanting to scare him awake. He didn't move. I shook him, nothing. I pulled him from the crate, no heartbeat, no breathing.

      I got dressed, thinking I'd take him to the e-vet. I stopped and stood there, looking at his lifeless body, and I knew it would be a waste of time. My big, sweet, goofy, smart, loving boy had passed over the bridge.

      I am completely heartbroken, I'm in utter disbelief, I'm in tears, and I don't know this could happened. I'm sitting here waiting to take him to the vet and have a necropsy done. I have to know what happened. I don't know what else to do. My boy is is gone. I don't know what else to do.............................

      NO!

      Oh no. Bruce is so young. Oh no. I'm stunned, so sorry. Oh my god.

      I thought you were about to tell us your good friend in England had a terrible setback.

      NO!!! Tears are flowing as I write this. My heart absolutely sank. I am so very sorry for your loss!! Bruce was too young, but he lived a wonderful but brief life with you and sweet Sophie. Give Sophie an extra big hug for me, and sending lots of hugs to you. This is such a shock. Run free sweet Bruce. Hope you can find my Lily and all of the other labs from this forum on the other side of the bridge.

      My heart just sank to the pit of my stomach. I can barely believe what I'm reading. I am so so so sorry Barry. I can't even begin to imagine what you must be going through right now. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family through this difficult time. Rest in peace sweet Bruce, you were taken from this Earth far too soon.

      What am I reading? I can't believe this. Sitting here at work with tears and my whole body is tingling with anxiety reading this. I am so sorry. Can't find any other words right now.

      No! No! Tears are flowing. So devastating. So young, so active, so vital. My heart goes out to you and Sophie.

      I hope the vet can give you some answers.

      Hugs to you and Sophie.

      Rest In Peace Sweet Bruce
