Shadow 1/16/2002 - 9/14/2016 Shadow passed away peacefully on September 14th just after 2pm, with the help of a Veterinarian after the difficult decision was made. In July he was taken to the Vet after several days of him throwing up, after a blood test, and other tests he was admitted and stayed 2 days at the Vet Clinic. He had a 2nd appointment to be checked out again, as he was not getting better. He was then referred to another Vet to have an ultrasound done. It was then determined that he had a cyst in his intestine and the wall was swollen. He also had a spot/cyst in the middle of his right kidney, his left kidney was non functional. Surgery was not an option. He was too old and it was a 50/50 chance of survival, if he pulled through only to extend his life maybe 3 months. And the surgery would have cost in the thousands. We were told that the best thing was to take him home and make him comfortable, and to make memories with him as he would only be with us for a couple of weeks, He was with us for 4 weeks. On Sept 13th, I went to get him up to let him out. He was unable to get up. I packed him out and he was unable to walk and stand and unable to pee. after several attempts throughout the day, and his health been declining the difficult decision was made that it was time to let him go as I did not want to see him suffer. Sept 14th we took him to have him humanely put to sleep. I told him how much I loved and cared for him. It was hard for me, as I have never put one of my dogs down before, and I had Shadow since he was 9wks old. But I know it was the best choice I could make for him and for me. He is now pain free and with Rusty and Lucky. I will miss my baby boy. It does not seem like he is truely gone. I am still looking for him to follow me, as he was my true shadow. <3

How We Met?

My brother knew that I love animals. When I became a homeowner, he found an ad in the paper for free puppies, and he took me to see them. They had several, but my husband wanted a boy dog. There were only 2. So, my choices were limited. I chose Shadow, and I didn't name him till several weeks later, after he was always wanting to follow me around..that is how he got his name. He was the first dog that came into our lives and Home.

Happy Birthday!!!

to your mama. I hope she has a wonderful birthday tomorrow with all of her favourite things. I finally got a chance to do a little blogging. How are you all doing? I bet you're not enjoying all this heat. It seems the whole country has been hit by a heatwave. Oh boy, I have not written properly since the 4th. I thought it was hot back then but now, oh my. 110 yesterday, 10% humidity, and dry thunderstorms today. So far it's been alright. But we are very worried about forest fires. All the conditions are perfect for one. One of the lightning strikes hit right outside the window where I'm typing. Wow, a bit too close for comfort! Mama took me, (with Kermit and Tuna in the basket) on a bike ride yesterday. I think she was crazy to do it in this extreme heat but she was feeling stir crazy. I ran loose alongside the road in the forest where it was a bit cooler. But still, it really was too hot. We only went about 4 miles. The other day we went hiking across the road in the national forest. It is so dry that the dust is several inches thick on the unpaved road and billows up in the air. Mama says it's like walking on the surface of the moon. Like she would know. Has she ever been there? I don't know if you remember but earlier this month our garden was being dug up and generally made a mess of by some night time creatures. Well I, yes me, discovered who these mysterious creatures are. In the middle of the night I was on my way to bed and mama was already inside. Suddenly she heard me barking frantically and she came out to investigate. I had found a young opossum and was holding it at bay. She admired it and said oh how cute it was then she told me to wait and she ran in and got the camera. I kept it there until she returned and snapped some photos. I uploaded one of them on my page. And yes, we went hking up in the mountains again. We had to ascend to almost 8000 feet this time to hit snow. It was about 80 degrees up there, so 20 degrees cooler than our valley, and the glaciers were melting. The rocks were super hot and right next to them was snow. You could here the running of water deep beneath. The snow is so thick it keeps itself cold. It was spectacularly beautiful and I loved running on the cool snow. Mama got some photos and video of me. I hope she'll make a movie about that too. In the meantime, I uploaded a few of those photos on my page. I hope you're enjoying your weekend. We have a strange dog here right now. He kept mama up all night by howling. He's lost but doesn't have a tag so we're trying to find his rightful owner. He looks like a chow/rottweiler mix and is ever so sweet. He knows some tricks too so he must have a loving owner. I have so much more to say but mama has just been so busy that we are having trouble keeping up. Just about every appliance has broken down. I'd make a list but I think I'd run out of blogging space. Needless to say, it's kept us busy and has not been cheap. Here's a vote for you an

Hi Shadow & Family

Thanks for coming by and seeing me. It's nice to meet you. Stormy said your one special guy. Mom said if she could bottle puppy breath she would make a million. Only thing is, she would have to have a cute little fuzzy puppy face to go with it. I hope to see you around my page. Aussie Kisses, Kaylee
