From Kevin, Reagan's adopter (12/2/10): "Dew Little" (Reagan) passed away yesterday morning of congestive heart failure. He started panting heavy about 3am and died about 30 minutes later in my arms. He was diagnosed with a heart mummer class 2 in 2008. He went every year for check ups and they even did elderly blood work in July. They also did an ultrasound and all signs were he was healthy. This was probably the hardest thing I have had to go through but I must tell you I am so glad I was there and know he died as peacefully as possible. He was wagging his little tail up until last few minutes. It would have been 7 years this Christmas you brought him to me for our trial visit. We had a great time together and he was truly loved. He never forgot and was the best little friend! I remember when you came to visit about 6 months after he was with me and he remembered you and did his little wine... a noise he made when he was really happy! Anyway, just wanted to let you know. Thanks for hooking me up with him. He was very very special!
