My parents beautiful black Labrador Retriever Shelby passed on
Sept. 16, 2011. She was initially my brother's dog but when she
proved too rambunctious, she ended up on the hill at my folks
place. Aptly named, she could run like the wind, and was
absolutely full of it - alot of fun to play tug of war with. She was
loving, kind, and ready to please - she'd pull a rock out the pond for
you. She lived a good, full life of 14 1/2 years - we hated to see her
go, but it was time, and inevitable as it is for all of us mortals. We'll
miss her.
