Welcome to Shadowdance

 

Except for my High School and College years, I’ve never been without a dog at my side. Growing up, my dad raised black Labs and my mom always had some kind of cocker mix. Me? I went for the working dog cross. I didn’t meet my first Aussie until I started riding horses in the late 80’s. It was, as they say, love at first sight… or in my case, bite. Despite getting heeled nearly every time I walked in the barn, I was strangely smitten with the resident Australian Shepherd. Dogs were more budget friendly than horses, so I put my name on the list for a pup and the little speckle-faced boy over there —> chose me.

 

Flynne was the start of a journey that has taken me places I never would have gone, introduced me to friends I never would have met, and challenged me in ways I never imagined. These dogs have taught me much, and I’m still learning. The fact they even managed to wiggle their ways into my husband’s heart is saying a lot since he was not a dog person when we met. I don’t foresee a time I’ll be without one of these incredible dogs beside me.

Forever In Our Hearts

Each dog that has entered our lives
has taught us something about love, life, laughter, and loss.
Some lessons were more profound than others.
Some dogs left more of a mark.
All of them were loved beyond measure.
