Shine was a clever girl with a quick mind who was always up for and up to something :)

She loved her soft toys but almost always ripped the stuffing out, she also loved retrieving and catching tennis balls (this second was her party trick) the tennis balls didn't last long though. Shine could be a bit of a devil with strangers and I always had to watch her with visitors until she made up her mind whether or not she was going to let them have honour of patting her, needless to say she was an excellent guard dog.
She loved puppies and was my self appointed puppy helper, walker and puppy photo taking assistant.

Jan 2006 Shine was 9 years old this month, although you'd never know it to watch her, the little Grommit (as we liked to call her), was still full of mischief!

19th May 2010 Surgery for agressive MammaryTumor (diagnosis adenocarcinoma), vet recommended chest x-ray in 6 months as it is the type of cancer most likely to spread to the chest.

Oct 2010 Shine hadn't been herself for a few weeks, she became lethargic and wasn't eating much and I was concerned that the cancer had spread into her chest or stomach as the vet had mentioned it might, rather than wait the extra few weeks for her next schedueled check up we took her back to our vet. She had Xrays an ultrasound and blood tests which showed nothing, we chose not to put her through more tests or surgery so we took her home with some medication to hopefully help her become a bit more active and get her appetite going. She was much the same for the next week, then over a few days she deteriorated rapidly, leading to the decison I dread having to make....... I've lost another piece of my heart with your passing my beloved and special girl.....

Shine's memory will live on in her progeny, particularly with her cheeky little namesake (baby Shine) Lumineux Hellfire pictured together (below).
