Hi everyone - Annette and I would like to thank everyone for their kind thoughts and words. Shelby was our first dog as a family and a family dog she was. She grew up with our two boys and their childhood memories are full of Shelby sharing the bed and couch with them. She was always happy to be with her family, especially at dinner time. Many a night I would come home from a late night call and have to move her from my pillow to the foot of the bed. She was a lounger for sure. I want to share one more photo with you, it's rather fitting for the portal. We had just brought home our new camper in the spring of 2007. Opening it up as excited new owners, it didn't take long for Shelby to walk over. Knowing her whole family was inside this new tent on wheels, she placed her front feet on the step and let out a bark. My son opened the door, she came in, gave a sniff here and there and immediately jumped in one of the bunk ends and made herself comfortable, The princess had picked a bed over a couch as her new sleeping quarters. Take it easy our camping collie, we miss you.
