My Shilah Jane....




I may ramble a bit here.... this is a layout I did awhile ago of my Shi. She was 6 months old when she came to live with me ~ and I lost her Jan. 2007 she was 16 1/2 years old. She shared 16 years of my life... before kids, before marriage, through tough times..... she was my baby girl. When she was young the only time she would calm down was during football games... and she would lay on my lap ~ under the blanket through all my yelling and whooping ....






She layed in the dirty clothes when I was away .... when I would come home and couldn't find her I'd find her curled up in my dirty clothes basket... the vet said it was her way of being close to me when I wasn't there.






One year at a PAWS walk she won 3rd place in the Best Dressed Dog competition.... she let me dress her but really hated it when I did... now that is love.






And when life kicked me down and all I wanted to do was give up she's lay on my lap and let me cry on her, hug her or just pet her.... I still cry when I think of her... remembering the good times and missing her so very much she was such a large part of my life for a long long time ....I know she was meant to be mine... when my sister told me about the abandoned dog under her friend's porch... and I said I'd take her I had no clue that such a bond would be formed and such memories would be made. I haven't been able to bring myself to scrap her since she died... i have so many I want to do and just haven't gotten to that place that is doesn't hurt so bad......
I was blessed to have been able to hold her as she took her last breath... knowing I was there by her side as she had been by my side when I needed her was the best gift we could have given each other.



So here's to my Shi's memory ~ What a ride we had... I love you "Butt Butt" and will NEVER forget you !!

Ronda, Shilah was very lucky to have someone in her life who loves animals so very much. And she loved you unconditionally, which is always a wonderful thing. Thanks so much for your wonderful fur baby stories, and the freebies, of course!
