Shadow was a part of our family for almost 14 years. He was one of those dogs that everyone fell in love with. He was a very friendly and loving dog that always wanted to follow you around. In August Shadow started having trouble walking and eating. We took him to the vet and they put him on medication, but that did not seem to help. Towards the end of August we knew it was time to let him go. Letting Shadow go was one of the hardest and sadest things we ever had to experience, it was like putting one of our family member to sleep.

  It has been almost two months since we let shadow go and at times it is still hard. We go outside hoping our precious Shadow will come up running and waging his tail wanting a bone-he loved his bones. We will never be able to replace Shadow, he was the best! Shadow if you are listening your family, friends, Socks, & Cookie miss you very much.

Love, Tim, Brenda, Jeremy, and Kristina
