My furst doggy furiend was our next door neighbor’s dog, Shadow. Shadow was about 1 year old on my original Gotcha Day in 2008. This was great! He was young enuf that he didn’t mind my puppiness, but old enuf to be a good, calming influence on me. Not to say he didn’t like to play! We LUVED ruff housin’ togefur!
Sadly, he was also one of my furst furiends to go to Rainbow Bridge. Shortly after my furst year Gotcha year annifursary in 2009 Shadow died. He was only a little over 2 years old. He hadn't been feelin' well so his fambily took him to the dogtor. Turns out he had a hernia and during the operation to fix it he died on the operating table. My fambily was very surprised and very sad. We thought we would grow up togefur and be great pals livin' side by side fur many years. This was not to be.

Awww. Poor Shadow an' hims fambly an' poor Pepper cuz hur misses hur gud fwiend, Shadow ♥
This is sad.. but you also learnt valuable things from Shadow. Hard as it is.. his short life gave a huge amount of meaning to yours.. and maybe sharing that thought with your neighbours even now would help ease their pain a little.
Sadness does happen sometimes when it is not expected...how that must have been painfur to his pawrents.
We know you really miss him, still. Go and give the peeps that were his pawrents a good loving lick, it will help them feel better, too.
Thanks Zaidie, Flicka & MrJack. Yes, sad as we were, his folks were pretty devastated. They did not even get to say good bye. We sent some flowers right after it happened. But you all are right. His 1 year Rainbow anniversary is coming up and we should let them know we are thinking of him and them.
That's sad he died so young. :(
