Goodbye Shelby

[ #32315 ]


        Taken this morning on her last day.

        Shelby had gone downhill so fast we really didn't know how much longer
        she had left in her. The crippling arthritis in her back legs and spine
        almost prevented her from walking. And finally today she couldn't get
        up from outside in the snow, so it was time.

        We'd had her 11 years, and she will be missed more than she could know.

        Goodbye Shelby - no more pain now. Run in your sleep forever.

  • Shelby's picture is as beautiful as your sentiment. I hope your heart heals soon.

  • First of all I am very sorry for your loss! I too just lost a very important part of my life yesterday, she was my precious dog named Shelby. She passed away after a quick downhill slide, as yor Shelby did, into severe arthritis in her hind legs. It got so she could barely get up or down without help. Like yourself I had my Shelby for 11yrs. In my sorrow tonight,since I could not sleep, I came to the computer and did a search for the heck of it for "goodbye Shelby" and to my amazement your submission ca
