Former 'First Lady of Aggieland,' Reveille VIII, dies at age 12

Reveille VIII, the "First Lady of Aggieland" and former Texas A&M University mascot, died Monday after a brief illness, the university said.

The collie, who served from August 2008 until her retirement in May 2015, was 12 years old.

Reveille fell ill early Saturday and was taken to the university's College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital.

"She had a disease that involved her liver, her spleen, and many of her muscles," Dr. Kate Creevy, associate professor of small animal internal medicine, said in a written statement. "We could see this was a source of pain for her and not something that we wanted to ask her to fight."
