This morning at 9:45 AM my German Shepherd, best friend, protector and divine keeper of all my secrets, passed away. He was almost 11 years old. He had a great spirit and taught me so much about life, focus, love, and commitment to people and to actions and the power of truth. This is one of my favorite photos. Shadow Walker's mind was perfect, but his body let him down. In his pedigree there were several K9, search and rescue and therapy dogs so he came from good temperament breeding. Unfortunately he had dysplasia in both the hips and his shoulders. He lived 5 years beyond what the vet wanted. He is free and happy now and I will always love him.
