Shadow is the four-legged love of my life. On April 1, 2007, I rescued him from the SPCA just a few weeks after buying my first house – it was love at first sight! He was two years old at the time, sick, and in need of a lot of love. Now he has actually started to mellow into a pretty cool dog. He loves to run around in his pen, bark at squirrels, and go swimming!
