    DefaultHappy Birthday Shadow- NLR

    Our Shadow turns 15 tomorrow. It is hard to believe that the tinyyy little black ball of fuzz we rescued over 14 year ago, is now 15!
    Where does the time go? We had just seen the movie Homeward Bound, when Jeffrey was little, and he insisted on the name Shadow.And he really is a Shadow...he follows us all over the house, up and downstairs. I tell him to stay and wait so he doesnt have to take the steps but he won't have it. He wants and needs to be wherever we are.

    Shadow is the sweetest little mutt. We don't know exactly what his mix is but he is personality plus. We tell him he is an honorary Lab.
    He has several large tumors on his hips that the vet said should not be removed. He's just too old to risk the surgery. He is missing some teeth, has gotten cataracts just this year, and has bad days and good days in terms of mobility. Usually an Ascriptin perks him right up.

    He truly is still enjoying life even if it is at a slower pace. He is a pro-beg artist. He can mooch with the best of them..but he does it in such a subtle , sweet way that he is never scolded for it. Face it, we don't scold him for anything he does...even when he empties the trash all over the floor : Shadow loves Emma and Aidan...he grooms them and sits back laughing at their antics.

    Tomorrow, he will get a trip to Pet Smart to pick out some treats, then a fat, juicy marrow bone to lick on for a couple of hours.

    Happy Birthday Shadow!! We love you :-*

    What a cutie! He's a lucky boy to have found such a wonderful home for 15 years.

    Yeah, that's *really* odd. I rarely see dogs that look like Bailey. What part of the country are you from?


    Unfortunately, Bailey passed away a few years ago. She had severe hip displaysia, too.
