|Lannie||Well, it's wintering here (20 degrees with blowing snow), so think of me as you're lounging in the sunshine! Have fun! (I'm gonna just pretend I carried your luggage and I'm relaxing in the warm sunshine, LOL!)|
|03-13-2020 08:36 AM|
Thank you Lannie. We have been going fast and furiously while we are here but we've gotten a lot accomplished so it has been good. We are going to Barbados tomorrow for 4 days to rest and relax and have a mini vacation. |
I have enjoyed being in dresses and shorts and not worrying about snow and cold! And there's no coronavirus here!

Edit: Oh, wait, "settle estate" just sank into my walnut sized brain. I'm so sorry. My condolences to you both.

Suggie-boy, this is your Auntie Lannie. I was just wondering this morning how you're doing. Have you been practicing using your brain like you should? Has it gotten bigger than a chickpea yet? It must be at least as big as a walnut by now! You're SUCH a good boy! |
I know you're busy playing and eating and sleeping and kissing your mama, but when you have time, send me a picture of yourself and tell me about your toys. I miss you, baby!

I just had a moment of shock--I mean, I knew this already, but it hadn't quite sunk in--Sugar is not a baby puppy anymore! He's all growed up now. well, maybe not his brain, but the rest of him is. |
I still think of him as a little guy.
Anyway, that sweet look of love--maybe we need that as a calendar category.

The funny thing was I was going to post up this morning to Sugar ad find out what he's been up to - lol |
Then this post
Love to read what you been up to - BTW Sugar - The groundhog did NOT see his shadow so maybe spring will be here sooner than later for yeah

|Lannie||It's so good to hear from you, Suggie-boy! I've been missing you, but I know you've been really busy learning things. Hugs for you, sweet boy, and tell your mama I said hi!|

Much too cute |
|02-01-2020 10:03 PM|
How sweet! |

Hi DT Sugar here. Long time no talk! Mama says my brain is a tiny bit bigger. I try to use it more but sometimes it still malfunctions. Mama says good thing I'm cute. I kiss her face when she tells me that. |
I love mama especially when we're practicing leave it and I have a sock in my mouth. Then we practice drop it. I still need some practice so I will keep working on it.
My best friend is an 8 year old pug named Juliet. I love when she comes over. She always bosses me around at first. Then I chase her and she chases me. I lay down so I'm at eye level with her. Mama says I'm a good boy when I do that. She and I have the same birthday but shes older than me. Juliet and uncle may come over tomorrow. I hope they do because it's been 2 days since I saw her!
It's cold and snowy here. I wear my handmedown coat whenever we go out and I love it now because it keeps me warm. I don't like getting my feet wet and look forward to winter being over. So does mama.
I still love mama's song she sings for me. It makes me sleepy. I stretch out, moan, groan and fall asleep.
Mama posted this on Instagram of me and Coco because she loves us so much.
It's hard work playing with all of my toys.
Mama found this old pic of Coco and the heron at the pond several years ago. That's a big bird!
Goodnight DT I'm getting ready to go to sleep.
Mama here...goodnight my sweet boy. Sleep tight.

|ECIN||Now , Now Coco - If I remember right - you said you were going to replace it anyway ??? Right ? AND Sugar just thought he would be the best son and jump in and help yeah|
|11-24-2019 01:04 PM|
|Coco Loco||In case you have forgotten Doc please refer back in this thread to see his carpet removal skills. He may have been a little less angelic that day!! Perhaps only a tad.|
|11-24-2019 10:02 AM|
I have to disagree Mel - There angels all the times - lol Even the times they -- they ?? test us ? screw up some - because that's what memories are made of - When one of ours goofed up some - then 5 minutes later we would be sitting there laughing our rear ends off . |
Now sitting here looking at Sugar laying there - I think his name fits him to a T I never see him doing anything wrong
|11-24-2019 09:51 AM|
Dobe puppies are only angels when they're asleep, but they make up for it by being VERY GOOD angels then. |
Hard to believe that he's almost one. I had two that were born in mid-December. It's a good month for birthdays.
|11-24-2019 09:14 AM|
Good morning DT. Sugar here. I'm having a lazy Sunday morning. I was cuddling with mama on the couch but then moved to my side. Mama said I look like an angel. I love that. |
My birthday is next month and I turn 1. Am I still a puppy then? My brain still needs to grow so I think I still will be. Mama said I will always be her baby. I kissed her when she said that.
Mama: Suggie boy you are my big little boy and I see that little brain trying so hard to do the right things. Keep trying my boy that's all you need to do for now.
|11-15-2019 08:17 AM|
LO Sugar - Ole Doc loves to hear from yeah ! Your pretty good at such a young age to be typing like you do ! Your a very smart young man ! |
Thanks for the update
|11-15-2019 08:05 AM|
Oh, Sugar-boy, you ARE darling! I'm glad your Mama got your whole head in that one picture and not just one nostril. But I see your dad can get you to settle down for snuggles, at least for a little bit. |
Don't worry, sweet boy, your brain will grow. You have a couple more years to wait, but it will happen. Meanwhile, just be yourself and make your Mama and Daddy smile every day. That's your job right now. Serious things can wait until later. Right now it looks like you have lots of new toys to play with! I wish I could come and play with you and your cool new toys, but I can't, so tell your Mama to give you a good ear-knuckling and head noogies from your Auntie Lannie!

I got my bullymake box. I was so excited while mama opened it. I couldn't believe I got my own package in the mail! I haven't destroyed anything yet!! My favorite toy is the purple zombie head. We know purple is my colour!! They were supposed to send me an extra toy for our long wait but they forgot so they have sent that in the mail for me. Another package!!
Mama always tries to take pics of me but I'm always on the move so they turn out like this.
I love when dad comes home from work. We cuddle on the couch and let it all hang out . Mama Hope's one day I will pose nicely for pictures. Maybe when my brain grows.

Yes, dogs are special. They can read us better than we can ourselves sometimes, and even though they might not speak English, they can communicate very clearly if you know what to look for. |
Our male Pyr sings the song of his people, every morning before sunrise. It's become such an expected sound to me, I can't imagine the silence when he finally leaves me. Well, that day is not today, and for that I'm grateful.
I wish they could all live forever.
|11-14-2019 08:20 AM|
Keep the stories coming Lannie. I love them. That's amazing that Thor knew where Ninny was. |
I think dogs are such pure little perfect creatures that are much more in tune with things than we are. I'm pretty perceptive and I feel Coco in the house all the time. Or hear her jump off the bed and flick her ears. The other night I heard Tiki singing the song of her people as she loved to do when she was with us. Sugar heard it too and ran around the house looking for her. Our love never dies in this house!!
Its interesting that you called him Sugar boy because I call him that all the time. Or Suggie boy.
We have had snow for the last 3 days. The first night he wasn't sure of it. I put his coat on him and ran around in the backyard because at first he didn't seem to realize we could walk on the snow. Then I made the mistake of teaching him that he can eat snow. What do you think he was doing at 4am today after he had his pee?! Eating snow and running around as the snow fell on him lol. Suggie is a silly boy!
|11-14-2019 07:39 AM|
I'm pretty sure he can see (or feel) her there, and she WILL help him. I have another story I wanted to tell if you don't mind me doing it here on Sugar's thread. I had a picture (a big 8x10) of Ninja on the wall in the bedroom, and Thor and I used to go into the bedroom in the evenings and watch TV. He loved to chase the two cats we had at the time, so we'd retire early in the evening and watch the boob tube while the cats had a few hours of freedom to roam the rest of the house. Anyway, one night, Thor looked up at Ninny's picture and then turned and looked at me with a huge question on his face. I said, "That's Ninny, he was here before," and Thor said, "Woo," in the low whisper they do, and looked back at the picture. I didn't think dogs could recognize another of their own breed, and I'd never had a dog that paid attention to a picture like that before. |
But any time, ANY time, Rich or I said "Ninny," Thor would race to the bedroom and sit and look up at that picture of Ninja on the wall. It was the damnedest thing. I'm thinking maybe there's a little of that in your sweet Sugar-boy. It's almost spooky, but in a good way, huh?

Oh Lannie that is a beautiful story. They surely do give us signs from the other side. |
Coco had a planet dog glow in the dark ball. It had an orange raised rubber world on it that when she was a puppy she meticulously peeled every part of that orange rubber world off and spit out. Then she never played with that thing again. That was about 9 years ago.
I forgot all about that ball until Sugar found it somewhere in this house a few months ago and proudly pranced around the house with it in his mouth. I gasped when I saw it and said 'oh Coco'. When I said her name Sugar looked up to the top of the stairs to one of her spots and wagged his nub. I know hes seen her because he always does that if I say her name. Hopefully one day he will listen to her guidance when his brain grows.
Our great love for them doesn't end when they leave us, it just changes. I'm working through this and cannot believe that next month on the 21st is 1 year Coco left us and the 31st is Sugar's 1st birthday!
|11-13-2019 07:48 AM|
Hey Sugar ! How you Do 'n' ??? |
Great story Lannie - we have also had them type feelings before

Second-mama, I'm so glad you decided to open your heart to this sweet boy. He deserves all your love, although I can understand your initial reservations. You feel like you're cheating. I had the same problem when I lost Ninja. We buried him in his favorite blankie and I sank into a deep depression for several weeks. The house was SO empty. Then I started thinking I needed another Dobe, but I felt guilty about it. One morning I woke up and found a clump of fuzz from Ninny's green blanket on the floor outside the bedroom door, and I burst into tears (where the hell did THAT come from?). Rich told me it was Ninny telling me it was OK to love another dog, and that I should love the new dog as much as I loved him. (Rich is wise.) Anyway, that night I had a dream that I had found a puppy, little black and rust like Ninny, and his name was Thor. A week later, when I finally got up the courage to contact the local Doberman rescue, they had a two-year old male named Thor. It was meant to be.
