I am new here and this probably isn't the greatest way to start posting but I just was looking for some support.
My wife and I are proud owners of three pugs. Two males(meaty in the avi) Charlie(black pug) and 1 female. Mitzy the female is the one we lost today. She was 4 years old and was never sick aside from the rare vomitting from eating to much and then running around. She was a small pug but all of our pugs are fit and lean. She gave birth to 3 litters before getting fixed. Well she did an infection afterwards so that and the rare vomitting was it. Her favorite snack was a slice of cheese.
So today I was home alone while my wife and my girls were doing their thing. I wake up let her out no problems there. Now nothing prior today gave us an reason to think she was remotely sick. She came and got her cheese and ran to her couch and ate it. She has a special spot ontop of one of our couches in the living room. She usually spends alot of time with me or my wife in our family. So after awhile I get up to get something to drink and notice she had thrownup the cheese. I didn't think of it cause I went to her and petted her and she was waging her tail like normal. Figured she ate it fast after playing outside.
I go back down to the family room for awhile and my family comes home. We are all talking in the family room and my oldest yells for my wife to come in the family room. My wife starts screaming and crying so I go to see whats wrong and our baby had passed away in her spot. She had a small amount of bloody diarrhea on the couch. I calmed everyone down and put her on a towl on the floor and just broke down, still am now. I am just so confused as to what has happened. I had read all of the potential problems that could arise with pugs, potential health issues, foods to avoid, etc. She had her shots and everything was great. But I am just at a loss of words. I knew it was to late but I tried some CPR on her and my wife just said she is gone.
I don't know what to make of all of this but just felt like sharing with a community of pug lovers.

Oh how horrible!!! I'm so sorry for your loss, this is heartbreaking. I have no idea what could have been wrong. Maybe your vet could have some insight on what happened? Such a scary and sad thing to have happen

What a horrible shock. I hope that her passing quickly, at home and in her spot will be of some comfort to you. The days ahead will be hard, but happy memories will come back. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family tonight.
