It’s been a year, today, sweet Shelby, you received your Angel wings. The heart wrenching pain of losing you is not as raw for your daddy, but not a day goes by you’re not missed. You left your paw print on many hearts & the years of those paw prints provide memories that will always be with us. You’ll always be your Daddy’s girl. ❤️🐾

Well, I did ok until the picture of dad kissing Shelby. You can tell how much they loved each other. Shelby was a lucky pup. I bet she’s up in heaven telling all the other dogs that her dad was the best! Such great memories! ❤️🐶

So sorry to hear of Shelby's passing. I will always remember her sweet bark to let you know that Bella, Tango, and I were coming up the back trail to your yard for a visit, or our nightly rides. When I entered your house how, I had to give her a treat before she would let me in. John, please find peace knowing what a wonderful loving life you gave her, and the joys, smiles, memories, and love she brought to you and everyone who had the privilege to meet her. They truly are part of our families and I do believe that we someday, we will see them again. My deepest sympathies my friend.

It's been over 6 weeks since you left us. It feels so much longer. Not a day goes by I don't miss you, my Shelby. I keep your picture on my fridge so I can see your beautiful face everyday. The first time I saw you I felt there was something special about you. Your wonderful daddy was kind enough to let me get to know you. I learned so much about you. How the first chapter of your life was unknown and how your daddy made sure the following chapters were all about giving you the best life possible. Your daddy always says, YOU rescued him. I miss you, my Shelby. I miss looking into your beautiful brown eyes, petting your soft fur and velvety ears. I miss you coming down the street for our nightly walks with neighbors and your "Pawsy" of friends. I miss giving you your biscuits and your sweet face looking out the door. Your quiet gentleness made you larger than life to me. A sweet little Beagle girl who stole my heart. I'll carry the memories of you with me forever.

John...a beautiful tribute to a great friend. Shelby is a beautiful girl. It is always hard to lose a furry young or old and I have lost both. But no matter what or for whatever reason they are always taken from us too soon leaving their forever pawprints within us. Be sure to know she is happy, healthy and playing with Oreo, Ralph and Eva while waiting for us to join them at the Bridge. I can send you my babies sites if you wish to visit..take care.. Kathy 🐶 😼🌈

I am so sorry for your loss of Shelby. My heart goes out to you as I know you are struggling so with the loss of your precious baby. Your world has lost a very special baby, family member and friend, but the heavens have welcomed home a very special soul. Earth’s loss is heaven’s gain. I know you had a special relationship with Shelby that will always be a part of you. I pray that my sweet little girl, Bailey, found Shelby and they have become friends. May the precious love you shared with Shelby continue to warm your heart and I hope you find peace and comfort knowing that your love will bind you together forever. Peace and blessings to you. My precious Bailey left our world December 5th, 2013 and we miss her so. Please visit my Bailey at

I also lost my precious cat Spooky July 30th 2001 after 16 wonderful years with her. I have lost several babies since Spooky's passing. Hannah 1/11/13, Sammi 8/2/13,Maci 4/9/14, Gabbi 3/20/17, Zoe 1/3/18, Willow 6/4/18, Shelby 6/12/18, Bear 11/17/19 and Bella and Murphy who were both tragically poisoned on 06/18/20. I am sure that Shelby and my babies have all become good friends. You can visit with Spooky at: Take Care, Susan
