Mr Alcatraz

We call him Traz. He is a great friend to little Nixie (the pup I'm holding in the other picture and was a great friend to Shadow. He is a typical male GSD, all I need to say about that. We love him for who he is, the good, bad and ugly..:-)

Time to get happy

Enough of the sad "I miss Shadow" talk. I suppose its bothering me more than ever as I'm mouring the death of my Mom, she passed the end of May. Life is forever changed and I search for the good in it all and am sure some will come out of it. Growth is never easy , but always happening.


This was "Shadow" she was caught in the act of letting Simon the cat enjoy her long, wonderful hair.

puppy love

Who Shadow Was

Shadow 7/20/1997 ------ 4/20/2004
Shadow was our true friend to the last beat of her heart.
Shadows first year with us proved to be challenging to say the least. She grew so fast and appeared to be a full grown dog by 6 months of age, however she had a lot of puppy in her, biting, chewing and playing. We always said, if we ever survived this puppy stage she would have to grow up to the be best dog ever. We did and she did.
We bought our business May of 1998 and Shadow went to work with us from that day on. She rode with My husband in his work truck, meeting and greeting people every day was her job and she took it very seriously. Not only did she have a tail that wagged so hard it could nearly knock a person over, but she also talked. Not a bark, but a howling hello, that may have been her most endearing quality. Think I will continue this another day.


I noticed this a few months ago, even two years later I still miss "Shadow" I found that odd. How can I still miss a dog. She was only 6 1/2, taken way before she should have been, but still..why is it so hard to put behind me?!?!? It seems like I just started dealing with her being gone this year, that in it's self is odd/sad. I have come to see that Shadow wasnt only a great dog, but was my friend, who taught me how to love. Life is so complicated sometimes.
