A year ago today I said goodbye to a very radiant being; my eternally brilliant, beautiful, goofy, transcendent service dog Shadow. Sigh.
I’ve written at length about her on this blog, but I believe this particular slideshow says everything so much better. Even still, it seems slight.
She was without a doubt one of the most vibrant, alive spirits I’ve never had the pleasure of knowing. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of her, miss her or am forever grateful for the years I was able to spend with her by my side.
A teacher, a companion, a friend, a buddha, and the loudest, most steadfast furry creature of love. She is missed. She is loved. She is a gift.
Life is good. Life is very very good. I am blessed.
