The One Who Started It All
Here's a picture of Sugar (white German Shepherd) and Mom. If it weren't for Sugar I wouldn't be here. No, she isn't my dog-mom but she started Mom doing the fostering for GSD's. Over 11 years ago my human mom rescued her. She didn't mean to, but it just happened. My mom didn't have any idea what she was doing cause she didn't know much about dogs and sure didn't know what to do with a dog that had been abused and in emotional distress and highly reactive. But to make a long story short, everything worked out great. Sugar healed. They became best friends and constant companions. Through their 11 years Mom says she learned some very important lessons from Sugar: 1) the worst dogs can become the best dogs, 2) detachment from material possessions, 3) to give back to the universe. But Sugar's body wore out last August and she took the Rainbow Bridge. We are still very sad.
