-The rivalry of Erin vs Shadow
-Ramming down my door to get in

5/6/14 - I can't believe it's been one week. Erin and I toasted with chicken rings in your honor. I keep expecting to see you every time I walk in my room. It's eerily quiet at night without you making your racket. Although, to be honest, I'd rather have that. I put your picture up on the shelf so that you can keep guard over the room as always. Even though I miss you and want you back, I am more happy to know that you are not suffering anymore. You've been with me for more than 15 years, it's just so hard to not see you there. I wish I could've helped you more. Rest easy, Shads. You will never be forgotten.
5/21/14 - Grumple! It's been about 3 weeks. It's a little easier, but I still think about you daily. I set up a little "Shrine De Shadow" on my shelf. It's all things dedicated to you, including some pictures....where you can continue to stand guard over the room. Pickle thinks she's the new queen of the house, but we all know she'll never take your rightful place...and don't worry....I keep her in line for you.
4/29/15 - Hey Shads! I know it's been a long time since I've written on here. But believe me, you have not been forgotten. Erin and I moved into a new place a few months back. I wish I could've had you with me during that experience. But you're still there, on your shelf overlooking the bed in our bedroom. Tonight, Erin and I are going to have Chicken Rings - your favorite 4AM Snack! We'll have a toast to you! I have to go back to work now, Shads. I hope I have some time later to write some more.
