Shadow is a 9-month-old Lab mix, rescued from Homeward Trails in May. The photo is of the day we brought her home. She is with my children, Michaela and Nathan. Shadow has since grown into a 45-pound bundle of love. She adores other dogs and children. Adults are acceptable if the other two groups are not around (but they're not nearly as much fun!). Her favorite activities include chewing and chasing all the wild animals in our yard.
