We lost our beloved friend and companion on February 7, 2013 at the age of 12. Shelby was a dapple dachshund who stole our hearts with her big personality and sweet face. Her expressions were priceless, her love for others endless. She loved to burrow under the covers and by doing so brought comfort to many people facing terminal illnesses. Shelby loved people and would sit in any lap that would allow her to. She never barked except when she wanted a treat. She loved to give kisses which she never missed as she had the longest tongue of any animal our vet had treated. Our other two dogs are still adjusting to the loss of their pack leader as are we. She was as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside. We find comfort in knowing we will see her again.
