Shadow is my parents' dog. They got her (I'm pretty sure it's a her, anyway) long after I moved out, after an extended campaign from my youngest sister. She's okay, as far as dogs go--I must admit I don't particularly care for them--actually she's kind of a wimp. Perfectly mild-mannered to be around toddlers. Last summer was Madeline's first time to really be old enough to interact with her. She was a fan.
So was cousin Jordan. He tried taking Shadow for a walk.
