[one of Susan's photos of Sand Point, Alaska]
I wasn't blessed with your companionship for very long, but you made a
very positive, life long, impact on my daughters, boxers & myself.
You were always so positive, with a loving, open, helping heart. When I
first met you, it seemed like we had known each other before. It was so
easy to talk to you about such a variety of subjects.
When the girls were sick, you made lots of house calls, & I
never even had to ask you to. The first time you made your pancakes,
with all of that fresh fruit, for breakfast...well, the girls wanted to
go to your house for breakfast every day. No matter how often I found
my daughters at your house, talking with you & playing with your
girls, you were always happy they had made thier way over, &
disappointed when I had to take them back home.
When I needed a boxer fix, Cricket, Shubert, Bailey & you were
always more than will to help out. I remember finally getting my boxer
pups coming, but couldn't find a way to get them here from Anchorage.
You helped all you could. In the end you ended up being in Anchorage
& being more help than I had ever imagined.
My two new babies came
in nasty crates, after their 6 hour flight. You weren't bothered at
all. We loaded them into your truck, & went back to the hotel to
clean it all up for the next flight. They looked & smelled
beautiful for their arrival into my daughters' hands. I was sure to tell
the girls how much cleaning you had to help me with, as well as
cuddling the new pups, just to get them ready.
I can only hope Cricket, Shubert & Bailey are in a good, loving
home, & still together. I know they are mourning thier
mother/friend & wondering where you are. You were/are thier life,
as they were yours. I wish I wouldn't have put off answering your
emails. I thought my life was to busy to reply & I would get to it
later. Guess I never thought there wasn't going to be a later. I hope
you are happy & at peace.
We will miss you dearly Susan! Thank you for opening this page. It
has been nice being able to see how much she was loved & will be
missed by many.

The picture posted is at the Peter Pan beach. This is where Susan used to take my girls & her dogs to run & play. It is one of few sand beaches on the island.
