Sara here. Sorry to report on such a sad note, but we lost our Shadrach today. While we wish we had more time with him, the last few months have been wonderful. We are so happy to have him spend the remainder of his life in the comfort of our home and not the cold floor of a shelter.

Shaddy had a large mass that was growing in his spleen. The mass led to anemia. He had some ups and downs since he came home with us, but he was always able to rally back. On Friday he took a turn and we spent the weekend enjoying our last moments with him.

This is another friendly reminder to all - Please do not purchase pets. ADOPT - SAVE A LIFE. They give back to you so much more than you can ever do for them!

Please enjoy these photos of Shad taken by the always fabulous Heather Bohm-Tallman Photography.


  1. I'm gonna miss you, Shadrach. You were nicer to me than Sadie ever was. My mum tells me you've gone to the big doggie park in the sky. That sounds like fun. Maybe I will see you there someday.
    Your blogging buddy,

  2. Lots of love to you, Shaddy and to Sadie, Mav, Mom and Dad. All who met you were glad we did. We will miss you! Thanks for sharing your love with us!

    - Patrice

  3. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I found your blog quite accidentally but am touched because my nickname is Shaddy.

    I followed my father like his shadow when I was a toddler and he nicknamed me Shaddy.
