The love of my life was a black Cockapoo named Susie. She came to live with me at the age of 6 weeks. We were “joined at the hip” for 15 years of wonderful. I called her a “latchkey” dog as I was single and worked every day. She would be waiting every evening at the door to say “Hi, Mom, I’m glad you’re home”. at the age of 15 she was diagnosed with a malignant tumor in her gums which was inoperable. I asked the vet if I could wait over the weekend to bring her back. He said “yes”. What a weekend Susie had! I cooked chicken breast and rice, all the ice cream she could hold and lots of loving, hugging and kissing. I took her back on Monday and stayed right beside her telling her how much she was loved until she was gone. She has a beautiful grave at Toothacres Cemetery which I visit often and decorate for every holiday. She passed away 7 years ago and I now have a beautiful Bichon Frise named Simone. I love her very mucy but there will never be another Susie! My heart breaks for you and your family as I know exactly how you feel. I have walked in your shoes. God bless.
