This is a picture of Shelby AKA the "best dog in the whole wide world"...June 2002. Update: Sadly, we lost our Shelby to old age on May 22, 2006. We adopted Shelby from the Houston Humane Society on December 23, 1991 and had her for almost 15 years. We would have loved to have had her longer, but are grateful for the time we had together. I do not know who wrote the following poem, but thought I'd add it next to Shelby's picture: Oh God, my master, should I gain the grace To see you face to face when life is ended, Grant that a little dog, who once pretended That I was God, may see me face to face.
