Our corgi, Rogue, died this morning at the vet's office. She was four years old.

The official cause of death is sepsis with complications from an enlarged heart. She got sepsis from a recent case of Pyometra (recently finished her heat cycle) and, apparently, she’s had an enlarged heart for some time. She started acting weird Friday night, we took her to the vet yesterday morning, and she died this morning. Very sad.

My girlfriend was her master, but I loved her just the same. RIP Rogue!

So sorry to hear that. It sounds like she was well loved, even if her time with you was short.

Gruesome condition. Sorry to hear of the loss but by reading the link it sounds like the dog is in a better place now.

BTW, the pics aren't working.

So sorry to hear that...Im sure she will be missed...Prior to my career as a paramedic I worked for 15yrs as a Certified Vet Tech and I was always sorry for the familes that lost their loved ones due to emergency situations...And Pyo was a common problem...Once again Im sorry and my thoughts go out to you...

Sorry to hear.

I've had pets all my life and they've always been members of the family. I've been there and know it's very difficult.

Best to you and your family.

All, thanks for the kind words.

I honestly had not heard of pyometra before yesterday, but I've since learned it is somewhat common in bitches. Live and learn.

I'm currently searching for rescued corgis on petfinder.com as I believe rescued dogs deserve a good home too...Crossing my fingers I'll find a corgi within a couple of hours drive of San Antonio.
