11 years ago, Mert, Jean, Jody and Kevin went out to a small farm to look at the puppies. We picked out a very cute, sweet black lab mix, and she was named Shadow.
The last few weeks were rough on Shadow. She had arthritis, diabetes, and her liver and kidneys started to fail.
Thus Jean had to make the heartbreaking decision to put Shadow to sleep on Tuesday. We were all very sad. Even Stormy and Deogi miss her, as they walk around the house and look for her.
Our pets do become like family and we learn their personalities just like people. They bring us much love and enjoyment, and when they are gone we are saddened by our loss.
Here is a picture of Shadow....in order left to right Boo Boo (Doug's dog), Stormy, Deogi, and Shadow.
