We said goodbye to our beloved Shadow last Saturday. We had her for thirteen years, she was more then a pet, she was a member of our family.
Thank you for blessing us with Shadow, we know we had to let her go, she was in pain and suffering, and we know that she has gone to a better place.
Thank you for blessing us with such a loyal dog, she knew her duty was to look after us, and she did just that. She was always selfless and had a servant heart. We'll never forget how she would follow us everywhere, even though she was so scared of strangers. We couldn't even stop her from coming to preschool with us. She was a shadow, she shadowed us wherever we went.
She was so very clever, Shadow could be taught how to only step her two front paws in the house, she just loved our company. God, I'll always remember how she loved visiting our farm, even though Shadow was scared silly of the cows.
She loved her friends dearly God, I know she's happy now seeing Warragoil and Sebastian, I remember how she morned their departure from this life. When we first bought Panda home, she accepted him, even though he was a cat.
Something I learnt from Shadow is how to be joyful, no matter what the circumstances were, she was happy with her life, even near the end, when she was in pain. I just loved her so much.
Dear Lord, please can you give Shadow a special hug, and whether you give dogs rewards in heaven or not, I don't know, but if you do, there's no dog that's ever lived that would deserve it as much as Shadow does. Amen.
Dearest Shadow, there is no way to truly describe how much you meant to the family, how much you meant to me. We all miss you very much, thank you for the service you gave this family, we will never forget you. I love you forever,
