Loves to snuggle in a lap and snooze, daily walks, rides in her look-out carseat in the van, run off lead and blitz
I have some separation anxiety. I'm a bit shy around other dogs, a bit fearful of getting coat brushed and teeth brushed
Anything fleecy, small stuffed animals
Hill's KD Prescription Dog Food, greenies and marrobones
In the neighborhood and at the park
Loves to do the "Bichon wave" by standing on her back legs and waving her front paws. Sadly Sugar's hip dysplasia now prevents her from doing this too often :( She still tries though!
Sugar was adopted at the age of two from Lily's Hope Bichon Rescue (Pittsburgh, PA) nka Bichon Frise Club of America Rescue. She came into rescue as a very fearful and shy girl with a long tear-stained coat. We don't think Sugar was abused, but was noticeably not well cared for. It took quite some time for her to gain our trust and that of her Bichon brother. Today she has transformed into a lovely little dog that is very gentle, sweet and loving. As human sisters living together and loving the Bichon breed we have become Bichon rescue volunteers. We've "almost" failed Fostering 101 several times. For now we'll be a 2 dog family, but know that someday there will be another to join our pack.
Sugar came into rescue with a male littermate. (Sadly we learned in September 2008 that Everett passed on to the Rainbow Bridge from a malignant brain tumor.) Sugar's tattoo number on the inside of her back leg, makes us think that she was from a puppymill or ready to be bred at one time in her young life. We already had a rescued Bichon for a year and wanted him to have a companion,so we adopted Sugar through rescue as well.
Sugar is not a certified therapy dog but has been to nursing homes and hospitals for visits. Her calm nature lets anyone pet and love her. Sugar does have her CGC (Canine Good Citizen) certificate, which is something we're very proud of!

Today I became an angel. At almost age 15 I had a long and good life. Being a rescue my moms always said I was the ugly duckling who turned into the beautiful swan. Over the years I had plenty of health challenges but this time renal failure consumed my little frail body and I couldn’t fight anymore. My moms are so sad but I told them not to cry. We’ll all see each other again someday and then it will be forever. I hope my brother Chester won’t be too lonely without me. He always looked out for me. I’m really at peace now with no more suffering. There are so many of my Dogster pals that welcomed me up here at the Bridge and they’ve all been showing me around. I’m learning how to fly with these wings and I’m sure it won’t be long before I’ve mastered them. Being an angel I’ll always be watching over each and every one of you. As a dear friend just told my mom, "tonight there will be another bright star in the sky". Love and peace to all of you for your friendship through the years.

Candle #11 has now been added to my birthday cake;) It seems like yesterday I was just a young pup. I was humbled to be remembered by lots of old and new Dogster pals. They sent p-mails and rosettes throughout the day in my honor. I have some of the best friends and they never forget me. It's been an interesting year with my medical issues, but I'm feeling good and hoping to stay that way for a lot longer....

It's been 2 years since I was diagnosed with hip dysplasia and I thought my days of running and jumping were over. Well let me tell you about the day I had yesterday. We've had beautiful weather and yesterday was a bit cooler, so we've been back to daily walking again. Last night we went to the school yard where Chester and I can walk in the fenced in tennis courts. Mom took off my lead and did I get excited. I actually ran and ran and tried to chase Chester and ran some more..... On seeing my back profile when I walk, it's noticeable how much more bow legged I've become. I bunny hop if I have to but I can still walk - and boy do I love those walks. I'll never be able to jump on or off the beds, but that's ok. Mom still picks me up to sit on the couch and once in awhile I manage to get up there myself. Last night was like magic to me and my moms were so delighted to see how good I felt. They thought I might be hurting more today but I'm not. Life is good and that's the way I hope it stays for me!!
