|Death: ||Jan. 28, 2012|
Sugar passed on SATURDAY JANUARY 28th 2012, after a battle with lymphoma. Sugar as her name implied was a sweet dog always with a smile on her face and a wag in her tail. She greeted everyone as a friend. She especially enjoyed the company of small children. She would engage them in social settings and wanted to be in the middle of their party no matter what they were doing. She allowed them to do whatever they wanted with HER, pulling her ears, tail etc. She never uttered a disapproving sound or an unaccepting response.
She loved her walks and was an avid explorer of the "thicket" that no human dare enter. Rabbits were her favorite animal to "hound" though she did capture an occasional mouse and a squirrel on one occasion. She was a consummate camper and loved spending long lazy hours in the tall grass of summer. Of course the food around the camp fire was another one of her favorites!
No couch was out of her domain and she spent many a long day resting her weary bones. The Tri state Basset rescue transport person picked her up from a shelter in Toms River where she was slated to be euthanized. We got her that Sunday at the McDonald's parking lot, with the understanding that they really knew nothing about her and we could return her if she did not work out. Well she got out of the car rolled over on her back and requested what later became known as her signature belly rub request.
Six wonderful years later she has gone to rest. She willed be missed.
