Starting 2022 with sad news is hard but it is a reality of a Senior Sanctuary so we shift our focus to the goodness of a year not the loss and ask that you join us in celebrating lovely, sweet SUZIE.

She arrived in early 2021 finally on a good track to overcome her severe skin issues so many months rolled by with lots of fun and lots of ball play. LOTS! Suzie was a charmer and just full of spunk no matter the ugly look of that skin. We all fell in love as this hilarious character emerged in all her glory!

We felt the corner had been turned until we hit the fall when bacteria and fungal infections took hold with a vengeance, common to skin issues. Suzie endured bleach baths, mousee lotion on her face, injections and various new medications in an all out war to push back the infections. We were fighting hard to find answers while she was truly undergoing pretty annoying experiences. She handled it all with grace but she began to languish and fight us. That was the moment Suzie voted for NO MORE, leading to the ultimate answer that we were fighting something bigger than just skin. Immune issues are systemic. Her whole body was shutting down.

Sweet Suzie felt awful and wanted no more intervention. She started losing energy fast. Her mood was dark and life was not the Suzie life she loved so right before the New Year, we gracefully let her go.

To say that Suzie is missed doesn’t begin to capture the loss… yet we are so profoundly thrilled to have met her…that drive and focus and full blown desire to go on was inspiring and something never to forget. Just when you hear someone say an old dog is done…Suzie will always jump into our minds and hearts to say…"Hey... don’t count me out’ yet... I’ve got some more time to go!"

We heard this charmer until the final week when she said…"I’ve got something else to do in spirit…please let me go."

THANK YOU TO HER ANGELS WHO SUPPORTED HER CARE AND THOSE OF YOU WHO CHEERED FOR HER TO BE HEALTHIER…IT ALL HELPED… NOW, PLEASE SEND HER THAT SAME CHEERING….GOOD JOB SUZIE…YOU DID IT WITH A GRAND STYLE SHOWING THE BEST OF YOURSELF TIL THE VERY LAST MOMENTS.

GOOD JOB, VERY GOOD JOB.
