Willowsmum Posted August 22, 2016 Share Posted August 22, 2016 (edited) Shadow the greyhound died this Saturday after a private battle with osteosarcoma. He passed away peacefully at home surrounded by friends and loved ones. Shadow’s early years are shrouded in mystery, but we do know that racing under the name J’s Canyon, he won 11 races in Daytona. He took early retirement and passed through several sets of loving hands until he found his forever home in New Jersey. He thoroughly enjoyed his golden years, lounging on his beds and favorite sofa, and sunning himself on the deck whenever he had the chance. He loved his daily walks “among the people”, checking in with his neighborhood fan club, and constantly inducting new members. One neighbor was so smitten, she adopted two greyhounds of her own! Although retired, he did freelance work as a research assistant, copy editor, children’s book author, therapist, and meal supervisor/food taster. In his spare time he enjoyed the occasional game of catch-the-squeaky-toy, chewing rawhides, and getting ear massages. He would like to be remembered for his joie de vivre, charming manner, and friendliness. He would like to be honored by his fans remembering to love hard, forgive easily, and take the time to enjoy the “little things” in life like a good walk with friends or a sun spot to bask in.
