The first time I saw a picture of Shelby was when someone posted her on my Facebook page. She was in an animal shelter and they were trying to find a rescue for her because she was deaf.
Within a few days, I started getting really attached to Shelby. It wasn't just that she was such an easy dog to care for, or that she was so affectionate. It wasn't just because she had one brown eye and one blue eye - a combination I love. It wasn't even just because she was such a sweet girl and so eager to please. I couldn't define it, but within a week I was totally in love with her. I so much wanted for her to have a long, wonderful life. I connected with Shelby in a way that I do with very few dogs, and having to say good-bye to her today was heartbreaking. But I am relieved that she is no longer suffering, and I am glad that I got to know her and love her for the short time that she was here.
