This post is taken from my mom's blog.

We've had Shadow for thirteen years (got her on Bethany's 10th birthday). She was stone deaf for about a year, going blind, but basically still doing good until a week ago. She got very sick, didn't eat for the whole week and we finally had to bring her in to the vet yesterday and have her put down. We will miss her a lot!!!

She LOVED to go camping. She was great friends with the chipmunks at Boot Lake!!

She was a Christian dog. Here she is ministering in her favorite up the gym floor at the church after lunch. (Actually she is helping us get ready for Bethany's wedding here.)

She sat in on a few Senior Picture photo shoots (for Brooke & Brennan, anyway...what's up with that? She was supposed to be Bethany's dog).

She HATED water in general, and getting a bath in particular.

She didn't quite understand the family picture thing...just look at her face!!

She made Scott believe that she enjoyed all the things he did to her. Not so sure about that...

...but she did enjoy Scott.

Lots of good times!!!!

Thanks mom. I am going to miss her so much.

Shadow, Thanks for taking walks with me in the woods and keeping me company! Thanks for playing fun games like hide'n'seek, with us kids. Thanks for being our pillow while we watched tv, and for always greeting us with a handshake! I wish I could have been there during your last days. But at least I have the memories of you. I love my dog Shadow. Good bye good friend.

  1. I was so touched by this post. I've been through it so I know how your family feels.

    I've been stopping in on a few folks (a little late from the UBP) and just happened to see this.

    My sympathies to your family on your loss. It's tough.
