Farewell Dearest Shayna

Well today I had to put to sleep my faithful companion of 16 and half years Shayna Maidel. Itw as a hard decision but with failing eyesight she woke up this morning and was twirling around in circles so I knew it was time. She came to me as a pup that was abused a few weeks after I had gotten her sister. She was so full of love and picked up on my hearing problems. She became a service dog and would alert me to people at the door, the microwave going off and even letting me know that the handicapped bus was outside waiting for me. As she got older she retired and just enjoyed being herself. Coming out to Nevada she just loved to run like a jack rabbit in the yard and even climb up the mountains that I could not get her down,lol. When we bought this house and she moved in with Pepper he taught her how to kick dirt. She was always full of love and kisses and loved to cuddle up as a lap dog. She certainly was a love and will forever be in our hearts.

Now my dear Maidey as youa re over the Rainbow Bridge may you have lots of fun times with your sister.Till we meet again I will miss you tremendously. Thank you for all that you have done for me.
