My wife and I are sad beyond belief. Our 2 year old French Bulldog died yesterday. We had left him at a supposedly good dog kennel and they called us to say they'd found him dead. We do not know why (we suspect he ran around too much in the heat and wasn't properly monitored).

The grief right now is unbelievable. We do not have children and he was like a son to us. He was affectionate, never aggressive, playful, clownish and had lots of cheeky little quirks. I would almost run home from work each day just to spend time with him (and he'd be waiting near the door).

Some things about him I'll never forget:

- his loud snoring in bed at night
- taking him down to the local park and him insisting on carrying a stick all the way home
- rolling him on his back and rubbing his tummy (and the look of joy on his face)
- his intuition about knowing when we were going out and the frequent pacing up and down
- going nuts with a frisbee and pawing it on the ground
- him being scared of bags and small shrubs
- the frequent farting (a very Frenchie thing to do)
- at weekend times we'd just want to lie in and he'd stare at us to force us to play with him
- the inquisitive head tilting when spoken to
- the rolling around on concrete when trying to walk him (he was a bit of a nightmare to walk but that didn't bother us)

RIP my beautiful boy. You will be missed forever x

I am so sorry. I can't even imagine how terrible you must feel. He was very loved. Sorry you have suffered this loss.

That is so sad, and so shocking. I can't tell you how sorry I am.
It does sound like his short life was a very happy one. Treasure those memories.

Thanks. I am having a terrible year with grief as my sister died suddenly in an accident just over 4 months ago. My dog helped enormously in the healing process and now my best buddy is gone

Sorry to hear that. Sounds like it was an avoidable death. Maybe to help others avoid the pain you're going through now, try to get a better answer from the kennel? That's your decision, but anyway, sorry for your loss.
