She had an autoimmune disease that destroyed her own red blood cells. We worked with Drs Killian and Peters at Prescott Animal Hospital to treat this since September, but Shady was not able to recover.

We adopted her from the Yavapai Humane Society in the summer of 2016 when she was 5 years old. She spent 3 1/2 years with us. Not enough time.

Here are some of my favorite photos of Shady.

Shady and Gary at the dog park


Shady running though the snow in our yard last winter


Shady being goofy, she liked to roll in the grass


One of my first photos of Shady. When we introduced her to rat terrier Suzie Lightning, Suzie showed her feelings by growling and flashing teeth.
