Sukie

A dog is many things. Many of us see our dogs as our best friends, family members or even as our children.
For me, my dog Sukie was all of the above. When Sukie came into my life in August 2009, she was 3 months old. She was a beautiful red miniature dachshund. She was my first dachshund and my daughter who was 3 at the time, instantly took to her. Sukie was my daughter’s shadow. Everywhere she went, Sukie followed. The bond was beautiful.
In June 2013, I suffered a nervous breakdown. I had never been through any mental health issues before and the panic attacks scared me. During this time, Sukie found her way towards me. She followed me around and would gaze into my eyes. When I had break downs, she would lick my tears away, when I had a panic attack, she sat next to me and never left my side. And when I wouldn’t get out of bed for days, she laid next to me like she was holding me.
The unconditional love she gave me was more than I could ever fathom. The truth is my dog got me through the darkest period of my life and I truly believe I would not be here today if it hadn’t been for Sukie. Our bond was like no other.
Sukie only lived in this world for 6 years but she left me and my family such wonderful memories and more importantly she saved me life.
Thank you Sukie. Thank you for your love, loyalty and friendship. You have my heart forever ❤ – Monica M.
