Pamela said goodbye on December 8, 2018.
Joe, my husband, was a Vietnam Vet. Me & Joe started looking on line for another rottie to rescue, found a dog at the Media Humane society. We got there before they opened, we were both excited. We go in & saw the dog that was on line, def not what we expected, unfortunately. I started walking down the aisle & there HE was!! I fell in love instantly!! It was his 1st day out of quarantine, he was found abandoned. They named him Nero. Ha! Def not a Nero, he was so full of energy, happy, oh I was in love!
They let us take “Nero” for a little walk. What a trip! Sug was all over the place. No containing his enthusiasm! In between both our legs, not listening to any commands. I knew at that moment he was family.
Unfortunately Sug wasn’t neutered so we had to leave him & come get him in a week. My daughter Katie came with us the next week to pick him up. Another love at first sight! They sat in the backseat on the 45 min drive home & were as close as a brother & sister could be by the time we got home.
“Nero” became Sug on the way home, and he made himself at home right away. There was a pile of toys from our previous rottie Romeo in the corner, Sug went right to it, picked up a stuffed robot pull toy & ran into the kitchen. I wish I had my camera because the look on him when he came back with the toy hanging from his mouth & his eyes asking “Can I, can I?” was so precious! Then he jumped up on the sofa. Sug was home. We were a family.
He was a great friend for Joe. Joe used to take him for drives & let him sit in the front, tried to put a seatbelt on him, but Sug just loved hanging out the window. I miss our cruises so much. I have a Honda Civic & the backseat is his. I took him everywhere I could.
Since Sug passed, Pamela has welcomed much new joy into her life in the form of TWINS! Her daughter Katie had two precious babies
