Some sad news tonight.  My brother called to tell us that Shadow passed away.  She'd been suffering from cancer the past few months.  Everyone is heartbroken, especially since we just saw her last weekend and she seemed to be responding to the chemo and doing well.  She was such a good dog.


triple dog dare you

This is probably one of my favorites.  Pa always let Shadow up on his chair.  A special treat she only got when she was here.  She knew right away that there was a spot for her.


This was naive IGK back in the day, thinking I could walk 3 dogs and push a stroller.  Ha. I learned quickly.


This was Shadow and Lil' Guy at New Years Eve.

Shadow is going to be missed so much. I know for my dear sister in law, her morning runs just aren't going to be the same without her.

Dogs leave paw prints on our hearts and forever change our lives.

We'll miss you Shadow! I know you are on the Rainbow Bridge though :)

I'll be honest, while losing a pet sucks a big one, what I found worse was having to have a KID lose a pet. I hope Little Guy is taking it as OK as can be. :-(
