Shadow came to me on May 15, 2011 almost 10 pounds overweight.  Every day Shadow and I would go for walks at least 3 times a day, sometimes more.  Whenever I grabbed his leash he would jump and jump and jump with excitement!  On every walk he absolutely had to take a ball or a toy with him.  At some point during the walk, he would get tired of holding it in his mouth and drop it on the ground and then dad would carry it the rest of the way.  After he got down to his ideal weight, I thought we could tone down the number of walks but Shadow insisted on them!  He was the most loyal, loving companion I could ever ask for and he will be SO deeply missed.  Shadow crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge on November 18, 2017.
