Our cute, little angel, Sugar, went to play in the meadow at Rainbow Bridge on Friday, August 23, 2013. Sugar came to live with our family in March of 2001 after crossing the border into the US and being in two other homes from Jan. 1, 2001, when she was born, until given to us in late March of that year. From that time on she was our wonderful little “white dog”.
She loved her Daddy and I but found it difficult to get close to many other people. If you where one of her chosen few loved ones, that was quite an honor. She was very devoted to her close family and would do all she could with her small body to ensure your safety and that of our home. You could be sure she would take every opportunity to watch her “big screen TV”–the open front door–so that nothing happened in our neighborhood without her knowing about it.
Sugar loved to “sun bathe” in the warmth of daily sunshine, to get warm under the covers in bed or in her Mom’s clothes with her Mom in them, and to snuggle in her safe condo–her kennel. Should our lap appear open (or our arms) she was sure she needed to be in them. If not in one of those places, look on Mom’s shoulder! She loved to eat, dog food if she had to, but truly preferred our food. And, when riding in the car, she insisted her place was on your lap in the front seat. When our grandchildren were young she would keep them disciplined by hiding around the corner and jumping out at them, nipping them on the ankle, when they went by. They learned to look around the corners with their wagging fingers out while saying, “No Sugar, No”! It was comical to see someone so small was in charge of such “big” humans–and all of them respecting her! She had her Dad in line too by “yelling” at him from the futon or floor when she wanted him to do something–and he did was he was directed!!
Sugar was welcomed by Our Lord with His arms wide open to catch and hold her, her brother Buster, and sister Sam, and her cousin Sandy. She was joined just one day later by her cousin Maizy. She is greatly missed by her brother Bandit, her sisters DeeDee and Bridgette, her second Mom Michele, her Dad, and I. We are greatly comforted knowing we will meet up with her again at Rainbow Bridge and spend eternity with her. Our home is missing our wonderful little girl and that empty space will never be able to be filled with anyone else. We love you and miss you “Little White Dog”.
