Poor Ben passed away last month, he was 9yrs old and suffered a seizure. I can't describe how awful it was watching him but it is some comfort that he died with me, and at home.
He will be sorely missed, he was such a great dog and brought a lot of happiness.

I am so sorry to hear of Ben's passing. My Prince died following a seizure almost 2 years ago, but he was alone in the vet's office when it happened. As painful as it must have been for you to watch, I'm sure Ben felt some measure of comfort knowing that you were there with him. Take comfort knowing that he is now seizure-free at the Bridge, running and playing with all the other furkids that went before (and after) him.

I lost my Patches years ago while he was being boarded at the vets while we on vacation and it is something that I have never been able to fogive myself.

Thank you all, he had been waiting to go to the vets for some tests for kidney disease and the start of some neurological problems but took ill before we could make a test date.
He went really suddenly, took ill in the morning and took a seizure that night.
The vet told me he would only have gotten worse, so maybe what happened was awful for us but the best for him.
Thanks for kind thoughts.
