Dear Sugar,

Its been about a month since you left and I miss you and think of you often. I know in my heart that it was time for you to leave this place as you had grown so tired and weak in your body. I hope that you are with Ghost and Doc and waiting for the rest of us to be back together again someday. There are so many things that make me think of you. It seems so funny to sit down to eat and you not be right by my side waiting for me give you a bite of "sumpting to eat". To be here with only the danes and not have your furry little humor to compare to them at times seems almost surreal. I think back to when you were just a baby and it was just the 2 of us and how sweet you have always were. You were always so much smarter than the rest of the dogs, even when you got on in age and couldn't remember the things you had previously figured out, you re-figured them again. I miss you my girl, you brought so much to my life. I love you.
