sad news from laura

Carol  ·  Apr. 2, 2015

It is with a very heavy heart I'm letting you know my dear little Suzie passed peacefully snuggled in my arms
close to my heart....she was 19.
I've lost many pets over the years but this one has hit me really hard.
Suzie was my only girl, now I've just got the 6 boys left. She was the smallest amongst my dogs & cats but Suzie
had the biggest personality.
I remember when Suzie & Chica first came to Saints in 2008. You were not home so I hung with the girls
in your bathroom till you got home. I was endeared to them from that moment......however circumstances
didn't bring them to my home till 2011.
Sadly Suzie's sister Chica passed about 1yr later in 2012
Suzie aka "the land shark" spent her last 4 yrs ruling the roost...she was #1 boss...she loved that the big boys
thought she was "bad to the bone". Murphy was afraid to get off the couch to get a drink if Suzie was awake.
I miss the sound of her nails clicking on the floor as she patrolled her kingdom....stopping to growl if anyone
of the other dogs looked at her wrong.
Even on her last day she had enough spunk to give her nemesis Benny shit for getting to close.
However I knew the the sweet, playful, cuddly side of Suzie Q.
This special girl made me laugh every single day.
Thank you Carol for rescuing her and then letting me steal her from you...
The void is huge....
I love you Suzie and will miss you deeply.........

(rest in peace suzie..you were an incredible dog and I am so glad you got such a very a great home to finish the last years of your life...big hugs to laura and family for such a huge loss.)

Thank you Laura for giving Suzie her home and so very sorry for her loss. She was such a character and I bet she is already the boss at the bridge.
