adopted Shadow from my Vet when her owners abandoned her with him. He was not sure how old she was, but thought about 10. That was 8 years ago. She was very old when she passed Tuesday morning. I adopted her to keep my lab, Rosie, company and give her a place to call home. When Rosie moved on, Shadow was lonely, so she adopted a neighborhood abandoned cat. They were great friends. My Mom met the cat, Bailey, and fell in love. So now Bailey has a forever home, but Shadow was on her own again. She the adopted a neighborhood bunny. Those two were a hoot together. Then the rabbit moved on. This last January, I brought home a puppy. When those two met, Shadow looked up at me and plainly said "How did you know I always wanted a puppy."
To say she will be missed is not adequate. I was so lucky to bring home that huge hearted dog.
