The Love Of My Life

Cockapoo named Susie. She was six weeks old when she came to live with me. We were you might say”joined at the hip” for fifteen wonderful years. She was diagnosed in 2000 with a malignant tumor in her gums which was inoperable. I asked the Vet if I could wait until after the weekend to bring her back and he said “yes”. Needless to say, she had quite a weekend, home cooked rice and breast of chicken, all the ice cream she wanted and held and loved for two days. I stayed with her and held her until she was gone. It is now 2007 and I can’t talk about her without getting tears. However, there is a bright side to this story. Five years ago I acquired a Bichon Frise and named her Simone. She is now my new love of my life but my Susie will never be replaced. I am looking forward to reading your book and I tell you in advance I know how you feel losing your Sprite. I have walked in your shoes. God Bless.
