Shadow was the best thing that ever happened to the Levy family.  Not only was he the cutest puppy ever, he was obedient, funny, strong, and genius.  Although he was diagnosed with every complication under the sun, he fought through it for as long as he could and made us all smile from day to day.  His favorite hobby was resting his head on comfy things such as clothes and blankets, his favorite room was the bathroom that he always guarded, and his favorite game was to play on the bed with dad and bark at nothing.  His nicknames ranged from Shad, Shadman, McDougal,  Simba, and Daffodil which I will always refer to him by.  Despite the hundreds of toys he was bought, we learned early on that his favorite toy was the "Hammy" and was the only one he would ever touch.  If someone told him to "go get the hammy" he would run downstairs, find one (of about 7) and bring it upstairs ready to play.  His favorite foods were eggs made by mom and Wendy's hamburgers without the bun.  His ears were shaped like pizza's which led to the expression "pizzzaaa eeeoooosss" and made me always want Shadow to get his hair cut.  Shadow also liked cake, because one of the cutest things I remember about Shad was when he licked his birthday cake while standing on the kitchen table.  Whenever Shad had to go outside he would either scratch at the door or wake dad up in the middle of the night to take him out; like I said, he was brilliant.  The first memory we had of Shadow was caught on tape- when he was brought home and peed right on the carpet.  I then suggested that his name be Bagel until the rest of the family saved him from that and decided to name him Shadow like his father.  He loved being carried in the "daffodil carry" where he would hang his paws and rest his head on my shoulder.  Besides sleeping under mommy's desk in the "clubhouse" every day, Shadow could often be found in the hallway on his blanket bed, on the couch on top of the pillows, or laying outside of his bathroom.  When we first brought our baby boy home from the kennel, he was this cute white puffball who then turned into an important member of our family.  Shadow wasn't only a dog, he was a hero; not only would he lay with us when we were sick and lick our faces until they were soaking wet, but he also saved a cat that was minutes from dying on our driveway.  It was in Shadow's nature to be loyal, caring, and loving to all of us at every moment because not a second went by when he wasn't receiving love or attention from us as well. He was all you could ever ask for in a dog plus much more and filled our days with laughter and love for 12 years. As much as we provided for Shadow during those years he was able to give us much more by providing us with the priveledge to love and care for him until the very last day of his life.  He was just as much a member of the family as anyone else and we will remember him always as our brother and son for the rest of our lives.

Personal Notes

What a great tribute to a much loved dog! Condolences on the passing of your Shadow, sounds like he had a long, happy, and full life. More important, Shadow had a good, loving family. We share your grief as we have lost both of our dogs recently and know how difficult it can be without without them. Just know that Shadow will always be in your hearts forever. Deepest sympathies and warm wishes.
