A Sad Farewell...

It's with great sadness to say that our beloved pet, Shadow, passed
over the rainbow bridge on Monday, 11-5-18.  He was 12 yr. old and battled a terrible disease for the past 3  1/2 yr.  Usually dogs
with this disease, which is degenerative myelitis, last only 1-2 yr. after being diagnosed with it.  It is a disease that has symptoms similar to MS.  He was a brave warrior and did his best until the end with much love and care.  He was very smart, sweet, and protective!  Our sweet guy will be dearly missed!  

In his younger years he loved to catch
the frisbee.
He loved taking truck rides! 

Just a few more photos of our sweet

 He loved the snow!

Rest in peace dear Shadow

Thank you for dropping by today!  And, give your
sweet loving pet a hug for me!  
Take care!


  1. Oh Maria--I'm writing through my tears & giving Fritz extra cuddles today. No matter how long we have them, it's always too soon to loose a furbaby. Shadow was a beauty & clearly a very special member of your family. I know you have an empty place in your heart, but also cherish all the years of love & companionship he gave you. Hope you can feel the hugs I've sent your way, my friend.

  2. Maria I am so very sorry to hear about Shadow. Judging by these photo's he was a beautiful dog and very much loved. My thoughts are with you and your family at this sad time x

  3. I echo exactly what Greta said. It is so hard to lose a pet because they are members of your family. My heart goes out to you at this sad time. I know he will be missed but you gave him a good life and he gave you that unconditional love that dogs give us. Sending hugs to you.

  4. I am so so sorry, Maria, for your furr baby loss. We get so attached to their unconditional love and how they make us laugh and comfort us when we are sad. Sending hugs your way and hugging my two kitties now.
