Our old dog Shelby, looks like she knew this would be a Kodak Moment!
This is one of my favorite pictures of our old dog Shelby, she loved to be outside but it was just a little too snowy and chilly for her this day. She passed away 18 months ago and we miss her a lot. My son Rory absolutely adored her and her him. When he was a baby she would sit at his high chair waiting for peas and broccoli to fall (when he used to eat peas and broccoli) when no one was looking, she would lick his spoon. He used to use her as a pillow and she would lay there while watched TV or read a book. Rory 's teacher called this week to let us know that he became upset at lunch and said he missed his dog, we had a plaster mold of her paw print so we gave it to him and he put that under his bed.
Her boyfriend Cody Brown lived next door and they grew up together, he was a little older, but she bossed him around. She liked nothing better than to rampage through his yard. Her life was us....and chasing tennis balls which she would do until she hyper-ventilated, as she got older, two throws would do it. The grass in the background is gone as is every plant, herb, bush, flower, ornament, trampoline, swing set, hose....because of Carley, our new lab.
