When I See Sugar Smile

One of the first dogs that I  met in the Blogosphere, (back when it was just Cody blogging, before Dakota ever had a blog), was Sugar, from the super pawtastic blog  Sugar The Golden Retriever. Not only was Sugar one of the first dogs I ever met online, she was one of the first dogs that I was blessed to meet in person!

This photo was taken of Sugar and I by her Mom, I think it was the first time I met Sugar in "pawson" and I can't remember if this was at Barkworld or BlogPaws. I am blessed to have had kisses from this gorgeous girl!

As sweet as you know Sugar is online, she is EQUALLY if not even MORE sweet when you are having a heartfelt discussion with her as I was having above.

I have had the pleasure, (as many of you have too), of following Sugar and her Mom for many years. Some of our favorite blog posts that Sugar and her Mom did were when they spent a year in Hawaii. The photographs of Sugar on the beach, and just enjoying Hawaii made me smile on a daily basis.

A blessing and a curse when you are a blogger,  you often  end up knowing the furbabies better than the people who write the blogs. We laugh at, and with these special babies, love them and hurt for them when they are hurt.

Sugar is known throughout the Blogosphere for sharing her infectious smile and positive nature and inspiring us daily, now it is OUR turn to send that love back a million times over to Sugar and her family! Friday, January 15th Sugar will be having surgery to remove a mass on her spleen.  If anyone can come through this with a SMILE on her face, it will be SUGAR!!!

We would like to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to Sugar’s best buddy, Oz the Terrier for organizing this most thoughtful Blog Hop. Please join all of us as we send love and prayers to Sugar and her most pawesome Mom and Dad!! We LOVE YOU!!
