My name is Shadow,I am a 80 lb Black Labrador Retriever.I am the baby of my pack,I will be 3 in a few months.I was a gift to my Mommy from her boyfriend,er ex,well I dont know any more! BOL! Anyways,I have been mommy's special boy for almost 2 years.It was a rough go there for awhile,Gramma wasnt too sure of me,we live with her for now,she thought I was too puppyish! And worse,she thought I might hurt my older little sister,Lilo.Believe me,I wouldnt hurt her,on purpose,sometimes I am a bit clumsy and she gets underfoot,oops!Trust me,she nips n snaps at me so i do know she is there!
I am what is considered "special needs",see,I have epilepsy.Just last week it was a year ago I had my first seizure,and in fact,I had a really bad seizure earlier tonight.But Mommy was there to hold me,and get me through it.I am really tired from it.Seizures are very exhausting,and,from what Mommy says,something that Labradors tend to have.I take Phenobarbital 3x day.I have been on it since March 2012,some days mom says it seems like it doesnt help at all,like tonight's.They have been getting milder,mom is glad for that,cos I am like a tornado when the epi monster attacks me.I really dont mean to destroy stuff,my body gets taken over by epi.I also eat 1 sardine a day for the fish oil properties to help my brain.The bonus of that lil treat is my furis super shiny and soft!
Oh,for future reference,I call my seizures "S",cos Mommy has gotten to hate that word.
A lil more about me...my fur mommy is a chocolate labby named Brownie,my fur daddy is a black show labby,I dont remember his name any more. =( I used to live in Arkansas,but now I am in Illinois with my furever family.I dont remember much about my life with Brownie.I do know I am happy and very much loved here,and thats all that matters!
Before I say good night,after my S,Mommy took me and Lilo for a car ride,to McDonalds.We got a McDouble,with NO onions,of course! It was soo yummy! I could eat those all the time,but mommy says no,bad for my health.So,thats bout it for now,I look forward to making new friends here.Good nite everypawdy!
Love n bones,
