neighbors shelter dog 4 y.o.

one of our neighbors who never had dogs till she lived here ( she lived in apts in the city and we have a bad influence on people ) well first she adopted her old boy freinds dog "Mr Diggums" ( who is now 17 ) 2 summers ago for her son who is Autistic and it brought the young man out of his shell and now he socializes with people ( plus he learned to take care of that dog ) well she decided to get a "pal" for Mr Diggums , her name was "Dixie" she was a shelter dog whos P.O. was older and passed away ,
the neighbor knew she was hers right when she saw her online , and the people at the shelter said she was hers when she saw her , the first examination said she was A Ok , well several weeks went by and she took her to our VEt ( 40+ years and loves animals ) and he found she had a heart murmmer , well we then she found out Dixie was 4 y.o.and not fixed , so she was spayed that was in oct , well last week she started coughing , they took her to another vet ( ours was closed and neighbor didn't consider it a emergency ) , they said she was ok .
well last night she collapsed in the neighbors arms , our other neighbor revived her ( cpr ) and they made a beeline to the vet ( 4 miles away ) the son called my wife and being good freinds my wife went to console her at the Vet office ( at first we thought it was MR Diggums being hes so old ) , well on the way to the vet Dixie passed away ... 2 blocks from the vet .. our vet said it was the murmur combined with congesitive heart failure . everyone is still in shock ,
atleast she had possibly the best 4 months of her life as she was spoiled rotten and many furry freinds . and last week she got her picture taken with "SantaPaws" ,
neighbor is having her cremated and keeping the ashes and we know she will be looking for another to spoil after she collects herself .. Farewell little furball
