Shadow: Beloved Dog, Best Friend

Our Beloved Shadow, a few years ago
Shadow, our beloved lab, has left this world. She was our loyal friend to the end. 

Lately, it has been hard for her to walk. Arthritis in her hip made walking painful for her. Yesterday, she had a stroke. Her doctor was kind enough to come out to the house to check on her for us, so that we didn't have to move her and risk hurting her. 

We were lucky that we were all able to be with her. She died peacefully. Her final resting place is in our shade garden. 

Today our hearts are broken. She will be missed. Rest in Peace, beautiful girl. We will see you again one day, in Heaven, because I know you are there.
