Arrival Story:
I stole Shadow on 12/15/2001 from my neighbor. He was in a very abusive home and kept locked in a non-running old van in their back yard. It took Shadow many months before he would come to the front of me for petting. Shadow has sense become the love of my life and has given me more joy and laughs then I thought possible. For the most part he is now normal but still has a fear of strangers and will keep his distance.

I want to wish my "little man", Shadow, a VERY Happy Gotcha Day. ♥
Today, 11 years ago, I stole him from a neighbor who had been abusing him. It took a long time, years, before he became what he is today, relatively normal. He IS my shadow in every respect. I guesstimated his age to have been between 1 and 2, which would mean he is 12 or 13 today.
Happy Birthday little man, I hope to have you for many more years to come ♥ ♥ ♥

WOW a lot of time has gone by since I last wrote an update on my Shad-man. We have moved from Southern California to just outside Eugene, Oregon about 3 1/2 yrs ago.

Shadow celebrated his 9th Gotcha Day with me on the 15th of this month. Time sure has flown by. Shadow has continued to change over the past few years. He now plays ball and will even bring it back to me to throw again - inside only tho. He plays a little with his brother, Nicholas, but seems fine with him in the household. Shadow is still ruler of this roust.. I think I see a few gray hairs on his face this year I have not noticed before.. I guesstimate him to be between 10 and 11 yrs old or thereabouts. Shadow is still the main man in my life!! Prayers that you will be with me for many, many more years..

WOW, a whole year has passes since I lasted updated on Shadow. Shadow has had a fantastic year with many trips to the dog park and outings, caping it off with a Holiday trip downtown to see all the festivities and Christmas decorations on his Birthday (or Gotcha Day as some call it). He was a regular gentleman and very well behaved. Did not shy once at all the crowds of people, carolers, or carriages. My little shy man has turned into a great companion.

Shadow is not quite sure what to make of his new brother, Nicholas, but is accepting him. Ashley still is his best friend ;)
