She wasn't a champion, she
wasn't cropped, she wasn't even the "right" color but what she was
we will never forget. Big, beautiful, white, floppy eared and Full
of Love.. she was our Sugar. We had to say goodbye to her yesterday.
A day we will never forget. A very difficult day for us as we
released her spirit to be free with out sickness or pain. We knew
the day we got her back that she was on borrowed time. Being a
fighter, she gave us 3 more wonderful years and touched everyone's
heart that she met. To many, she was the favorite. Sugar loved
unconditionally and I mean unconditionally. She would do whatever
you asked of her... not for a cookie or because she was forced, no,
she did it to please you. She would light up just to see you smile.
She even helped our nephew through his absolute fear of dogs. She
had that special way about her that drew people to her. She was
playful yet gentle. She loved to puppy sit even when they were
hanging on to her ears with those sharp teeth! Sugar loved to run!
She would run with all her might with a big smile, ears and lips
flapping in the wind. It would always make us laugh! We feel
fortunate to have been able to share our lives with her even if it
was for only a short time. It deeply hurts to have said goodbye to
such a wonderful spirit like Sugar but she let us know it was time
to go. Even with 5 others in our home, our house seems quiet today.
We deeply miss her. You are forever in our hearts big girl.
Run Fast...Run Free .
We love you Sug Sug.
With broken hearts,
Naomi and James
