Two dog night, again


Today we lost our Suni. She was ill and had fluid in one lung and a mass in the other one. We decided to not let her suffer any longer. I hope it was not too late. She was going to be 14 years old on the first day of summer. Having suffered many medical problems, I guess she really did pretty well. She was deaf now, but up to about a week ago, she was still operating pretty well. Libby was supposed to make her life easier by keeping Scooter from harrassing her. He only got to do that for three days. He seemed to be very bonded to her and insisted on sleeping nearly on top of her ever since we got him. Will he miss her? It depends on your point of view, but I think so. I know we will miss her and laugh about all the naughty and funny things she did, but she was still a lovable, affable, beautiful cocker spaniel. She was, by far, the best cocker of the three that I have had even though physically she was a wreck by comparison. The heart and temperment of this last one was excellent.

Suni, we miss you.

Love, Mom

Sorry to hear about Suni, Sharrie. I'm glad you've got gorgeous Scooter and Libby to help you through it...

I think Suni waited 'till you had Libby so you had another GIRL dog to keep you company.
