*Daddy's Shadow*

🐾 When I got home from school that day, there was something moving under the kitchen table and many deposits of this and that on the floor. Daddy had come home sometime during his work day w/a 'gift' from one of his coworkers. My mother had a meeting that afternoon and wasn't home when this delivery arrived. Shadow was about 8wks old, solid black, and the tale was that he was a cocker mix and wouldn't get "big". When all was said and done, we sometimes referred to him as Pluto: Shetland pony-sized, long thin tail, long legs, short hair and, oh yeah... big. If there was Cocker in there (what wavy hair??) it was well hidden behind a lab, at the very least. Shadow was happy to please, and that was his game. He truly was friendly and obedient. The neighborhood knew him from his walks and from Halloween. He delighted in racing to the door to greet each li'l Spook. "Oh Yeah! This is where Shadow lives! Hi, Boy!!" Our Pee Wee and Shadow didn't get along, but eventually settled for growling, and once that ritual was satisfied, all was good for that visit. At Daddy's death, Shadow was boarded w/the vet until Mother returned from his out of state (Ky) funeral. The vet did an annual workup while there. Shadow tested positive for heart worms. Mama was advised he possibly would not survive the restrictive treatment. He was getting old; but moreso, he would be highly stressed grieving for his pal. The right decision was made. Daddy surely was waiting for Shadow at the Bridge.
