BC: love ya, my girlie-girl

1: My Best Buddy in the Whole World!
2: Shadow was introduced to us as her family on New Year's Day 2001. She had spent the first year of her life with my brother Eric and his family, where she loved those little girls as no other pup could. Unfortunately, she didn't realize that she was a big doggie compared to them, and it became apparent that she was a bit too much for them to handle. The next 11 years were an adventure with this pup. She loved everyone (except cats!), and she even loved her "little" sis Maggie. She was loved by all in the neighborhood as she took her beloved walks.
3: Licks of Love
4: Cats leave paw prints on your heart.
5: It's really the cat's house, he just lets us live here. | Although Shadow was friends of all, she particularly loved our neighbor Ann. Ann was always ready with treats and "snacks" for Shadow, and Shadow would purposely dawdle by her house hoping to see her. This is one of her holiday treats Ann brought by for Halloween, complete with a stuffed skunk. :-)

7: Dogs leave paw prints on your heart. | Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole. - Roger Cares
9: Puppy Love
10: Puppy Love | "There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face." - Ben Williams | frenemies | Although Maggie would never admit it, she loved her "big" sister. Shadow would get impish looks in her eyes as she teased Maggie with swatting her with her paw, to which Maggie would instantly start scolding her.

13: Puppy Love | Shadow was a special girl who loved to do things "her" way. She left on her own terms on a Monday night, April 16th, 2012, her last gift to us from sparing us from ever having to make that decision for her. A friend to the end who will always be in my heart.
