Doggie Dynamics:

Rainbow Bridge
Quick Bio:
-purebred-service dog

January 6th 1995

Sush was a very competitive ball chaser. She could beat dogs half her age to get the ball and did on many occasions!

None, well she really didn't like being left alone too much.

Favorite Toy:
She loved her big squeeking duck and carried it around constantly

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere we were taking her.

Best Tricks:
Getting the paper without chasing the deer across the street. She was very focused. She would pick up and bring anything to you and would do it for educational purposes at schools to teach kids about what Service dog do.

Arrival Story:
We fostered her while she was a breeder dog for a service dog organization. When she retired from that she became ours. She did animal assisted therapy and educational presentations informing people about the jobs Service dogs do. She was the smartest and most devoted dog we have ever had.

Her parents were both champion bloodlines which made her not only beautiful, but extremely hard working and intelligent. Her offspring are all helping people with physical disabilities and do her proud!

Forums Motto:
It is my pleasure to serve you!

I've Been On Dogster Since:
January 12th 2007 More than 10 years!

When I went to the bridge my parents had me cremated. For a few years(4) I was in a cabinet in the living room. Mind you, that is not a bad place to be. But when I was alive,I loved to sit in an area at the back of the yard and watch them when they were enjoying the pool. Mom had thought that was strange when I first did that, little did she know the cancer had come and I was not feeling my best.

Now there is a garden in that spot, with wildflowers in the spring and purple Catawba crape myrtles blooming in the summer. Gone are the old cedar trees and it is much prettier now. I knew mom was making a place for me. The scent of rosemary and wild verbena is in the air. Pavonia and Shrimp plant are in smaller beds on the edge.

Today mom and dad put me in that garden with my best friend Maggie and we are together again.


The Dog Chapel

Mom was traveling recently and got to stop in St Johnsbury, VT to see Stephen Huneck's dog chapel. She had thought about going there for years, but it is a long way from Texas. She was brought to tears by the beauty and devotion in that chapel. It is a real tribute to mans best friend. That is her standing next to the statue in front.

We remember on 9/11

Morning everyone.
Today we remember a horrible day for our country. On 9/11 we have a personal time to remember. Our dad was in a plane that day enroute from Atlanta to Boston. As many of you know when passing NYC you get a birds eye view from the plane. As he was going by there were flames coming out of the twin towers but noone knew what was going on. As they landed at Logan airport the terminal was empty and they were rushed through. After awhile he was able to get a call through to home and they found out what was going on. Then the challange was to get back home as their meeting was canceled.
We were in Atlanta with no idea if his plane wasn't one of the ones that crashed. It was the longest morning of our life. When we finally heard from him our prayers were answered. As you all remember noone knew if there were not more terrorists out there. It was a surreal experience and one we will never forget.
