December 1, 1992 ~ April 1, 2007
On December of 1992 a co-worker informed me she was going on a long vacation and asked me if I would dog sit her puppy named Curley Sue. She also added she wanted for us to think about keeping her or else Curley Sue might end up at animal shelter after she returned from her trip. We agreed to dog sit. The first time we laid eyes on her, my husband, Alex’s, immediate response was, ‘We’re keeping her.’ It was like cupid had shot an arrow through our hearts. From that day on Curley Sue fulfilled our hearts with joy and love. She taught us what real love is all about. Her infectious personality caught everyone’s attention. Our lives became a ‘full circle’ because of her. In November, 2006, she began to show signs of old age. She wasn’t as active as she had been through the years. Her breaths were deep. The vet warned us to be prepared for her time to rest in peace. By April, 2007 we could see she was weary and tired. There were moments when we thought she’ll be fine. She would use every bit of her strength to greet us with her wagging tail. Finally, we knew we were being selfish if we kept her any longer. She could hardly walk and slept most of the time. As much as we hated to let her go, it was her time to rest. Her physical body is not with us but her soul will never leave us. We love her very, very, dearly and miss Curley Sue. We are very thankful for 14 years of Curley Sue’s love. How blessed we have been! Only time can alleviate the pain and time will bring us to happy memories of her. Until we meet again at the Rainbow Bridge. Mom & Dad (Alex & Janie Sanchez)
