   Leave a bone for Shadow~*In Lovin Memory*~

Baby Deer, Pretty Boy, Pesty

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:

Attention, Attention, and more Attention, Sratches on the chest, belly rubs, going for walks, stealing Rustys toys

Not getting attention, anyone coming to the door, being put in his kennel

Favorite Toy:
Me.. I'm too cool for toys! well ok..whatever toy Amber is playing with at the time, tennis balls are pretty fun too once in a while.

Favorite Food:
Anything inside his metal food bowl, oh yeah anything the family is eating... hey I thought you guys said I was family too, wheres my dinner plate??

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere that there are squirrls to be found, by the lake, just the sound of the leash gets me excited!

Best Tricks:
Letting strangers know "Someones here" woof! woof!

Arrival Story:
We had just lost our GSD of 9 years when our family decided to get another duo of GSD to keep our other old man up and going. These people were the second breeder we went to. We were so excited to get Shadow because he was from a Champion bloodline (we thought that was kind of cool) and he had green eyes too!

Shadows ears went up when he was only 8 weeks old. Shadow and Rusty kept Sargent alive for almost another year until he passed away. It was funny to see the two together, Sargent hated Shadow but we figured out that it was only because they had the same personality. Shadow had bladder problems and went in often to the vet. After his problems were cleared he was never quite the same afterwards. He did not trust too many people and once in a while would get snippy towards strangers. But there is a trick to Shadows crabbiness towards strangers... the secret is to walk in the house look over at Shadow and say: "AH shut up!" just like that guy from the Honeymooners! I works every time. Shadow is a great dog and a huge baby, he will curl up in your lap if you let him. He's very smart and even did agility for awhile when he was a pup, the trainer was pleased to see him go over the narrow bridge and under the shoot, I guess GS usually do not do so well in this area. But now he just enjoys just lying directly under your feet, in the kitchen, famliyroom, office, ok everywhere you need to be.

Forums Motto:
Baby trapped in a Tough Guy Body!

Hi I'm Shadow and I'm not sure why I have not written a journal entry yet. Well this past summer has been crazy, I lost my life long friend and brother about a month ago. It was tough to get through but Wendy in no time began taking me for regular walks, I have been yelling at her to do it but better late than never. So everyday now I go on what she calls a "Shadow Shorty" I'm on what you call an exercise program to get in better shape, I have to start out short. But hey guess what I am now half way around the famous "loop" by our house. Amber and I have been getting better with each other, we share breakfast and dinner now together. Wendy mixes my food with some can stuff in the morning, she said she hides lots of vitamins and pills for us old guys, but I don’t taste anything. I had my teeth cleaned this summer, I was not a happy camper about that, but now no one complains about my kisses, they just say I have hot doggy breathe instead of bad.

I talked to Amber in the beginning of the summer and she told me to beware of her mom, but I told her I was a boy and did not have worry. I guess I was wrong, I too am being punished with having to wear bandanas all the time, but I think the chicks dig it.

I also had a birthday party this year, I turned 11, man it stinks getting old. I had to wear a party hat, but I guess it didnt bug me too much in return I got a fresh out-of-the-oven homemade dog cake with beef chunks and gravy frosting, it was wonderful!! For a gift I got extra padding for our woobies, I love them now, they are extra comfy!

Well have to go crash on the new extra fluffy woobie Rusty left me in his will. I sure do miss the big guy.

Hang loose dudes! Shadow
