Unhappy R.I.P. Shadow

It breaks my heart to have to tell you that my sweet stubborn girl is gone.

I had planned to spend the day outside with Kobe. Shadow went outside in the morning, but did not eat her breakfast. She did not come back in. She lay under a tree and I thought she was enjoying herself. Then she made the weirdest noise I have ever heard. Hubby and I ran to her and she was having trouble standing up. We helped her up and her back legs would not support her. We carried her into the house. She continued to make the horrible noises, not barking or whining. It broke our hearts. We both knew the time had come. Kobe went and lay with her.

We had fourteen wonderful years with her, but still not enough.

Sylvie... I don't know what to say. I am so very very sorry.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I know that you are in so much pain but know that your animals felt and feel your love and compassion for them.
Be brave.
Strength and Peace to you all.

Beautiful Shadow - run free sweet one.

Thank you so much my friends, you really do help.

LP I feel we were the lucky ones to have had her in our lives for all those years. Shame on the people that through her out of their vehicle in the country to fend for herself. They missed a lot of love and enjoyment.


RIP my sweetheart

Please accept my deepest condolences Sylvie, I'm so sorry and I can feel your pain.

You gave Shadow GREAT years and you can be very proud of that. It does get easier with time, but not today.

Sylvie, you know my heart is with you. My Shadow and all our other furfriends will be playing with Shadow today. She will still know love and she will wait for you to join her in due course. She was a very lucky girl really to have been pitched out of that car - look where she ended up. If those horrible people had not thrown her away she would have had a very miserable life. No, I think that was her lucky day - she found her way to you and your love. You know we are all here for you, today as well as always. We care, and we understand. RIP sweet Shadow you were a beautiful, beautiful girl.

What a horrible time for you and your family. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you

I know that nothing I could say would be of much comfort. I'm just heart broken for you all. I'd like to think my beautiful Thorin is there waiting for her as well. Please take care, and if you need anything, let me know.


Beautiful girl

It's such a comfort to have them back home again isn't it. It's still not easy, but it's just good to have them back. I haven't buried my Shadow's ashes yet, but I do plan to. Eventually. When I'm ready. Eventually.

Bless you Sylvie for all your caring. Hugs to you as you heal.

So sorry to hear of Shadow's passing. She sure looks like she not only had a wonderful life but a truly loving family to share it with.

Sweet Shadow
