I lost by sweet Sugar Nov. 24, 2017
 
Most here probably don't remember me nor my diabetic dog, Criss Ann. She passed away back in March 2009.
During her struggles with diabetes, Cushings, lupus, and cataract surgery, gone wrong, I adopted 2 American Eskimo dogs from an Ohio rescue group: Hank and Sugar.
The boys were 1 and 2 years old in July 2004 and were
great friends.

Sugar lost a front leg to cancer in 2012, but appeared to be in good health. Yesterday started as any other day. When I went to get Sugar in for breakfast, I found him collapsed outside. I rushed him to the vet's, where xrays showed a large tumor around his liver. His tummy was so extended that he yelped if just touched. They thought the tumor had ruptured. I made the decision to let my nearly 16 year old go peacefully.

I hope Criss was there to meet him. Hank will be lonely.

Bonnie and Angel Criss Ann

Aw Bonnie... I'm so sorry to hear about Sugar and that it was completely unexpected, which makes it so traumatic for you...

I know you so I know how deeply loved Sugar was, as Crissy Ann was. He was a lucky boy to have gone from rescue to your arms. Please give Hank a hug from us and I'm sending kisses skyward to Crissy Ann and Sugar.

I am so sorry. Give Hank an extra hug from me too. Sugar must not have been in pain until the last day so that is a blessing. Xo. Judi

I remember Crissy Ann's inspirational story. No doubt Sugar was a lucky boy who lived a good life with you. I'm sure Crissy Ann was there to greet him. I'm so sorry for your loss. Nearly 16 years sure leaves a big hole in your heart. Hugs to you and Hank.

Oh Bonnie, I just happened to stop by the forum this morning and found your note here about Sugar. I’m so sorry for your loss. Although it has indeed been a long time since we were together on K9C, please know that your family there still remembers and honors your beautiful Crissy Ann. And as the others here have written, I have a deep and hopeful belief that Crissy was right there awaiting Sugar when he made his passage.

Sending hugs of peace and comfort to you and Hank.
Marianne, on behalf of all your old friends at K9C

I am truly so very sorry for your losing sweet Sugar. Sugar was very lucky to have you for an owner/BFF. I understand and know that Sugar is irreplaceable and will always be in your heart. I trust she is at peace and surrounded by love.
