So very sorry to learn of your loss. We drove to Renee's in 2004 to buy a puppy. In her home she had cared for this little guy specially, the weakest of the litter. He was our amazingly smart and beloved pet for 16 1/2 years, until a few weeks ago, and we attributed his adorable personality at least in part to Renee's kind care in his first days. We remember her well and send our sympathy.
