Shadow: My Loving Companion: Expressing my feelings here indeed helps my heart and soul to heal. I lost Shadow over two years ago and still grieving. As a senior of 76 years young, I have had dogs all of my life and each who have passed on was totally loved and it was emotional. But this time, the loss has been more devastating. He was my first male. Interestingly, I was seeking a female Yorkie at first – my first female passed away and she was like my baby – she was with me at almost every given moment. It was definitely emotional, but within a reasonable time, I was open to sharing my life again. Then came Shadow – Full of life – passion – adventurous and totally independent – brilliantly smart & intuitive. I could go on and on and share amazing stories. I miss him so much.
