WHEN I SEE SUGAR SMILE

When I See Sugar Smile is a blog hop I just knew the Boys and I wanted to participate in.

WHO’S SUGAR?

Sugar the Golden Retriever – one of the first pet blogs I started following a few years ago. We’ve adopted her as the Boys cousin by way of their material genes #theirmamaspeople

Sugar is well known in and out of our blogging community – especially for her infectious smile 🙂

For us here in Doodleville, many of my attempts to create homemade treats have been recipes from Sugar.

Today, Sugar will have surgery to remove another mass which is sitting on her spleen #splenectomy

Oz the Terrier created this blog hop to send the “Power of the Paw” to Sugar and her family. What better way for her humans to #feelthelove than to read so many beautiful heartfelt stories (from so many) about Sugar.

Once the Boys found out about Sugars surgery they came into my office and barked out a plan…

Why not make a music video for Sugar? #DJDoodleJaxy

Who knew Jax could scratch? #sirmixalot

So for the rest of the day, please smile at everyone you know. Think positive and happy thoughts for a pup who’s been making us smile for years. We certainly will…

    “We’ve adopted her as the Boys cousin by way of their material genes #theirmamaspeople”

    Made me laugh out loud!

    Wrigley, Piper, and me send our love and positive energy to Sugar too! She is such a beauty, and I can tell she has a lot of love surrounding her!

      Thanks MK – We wanted to create something to make Sugar’s humans smile #ifforonlyamoment Everything will be just fine – I can feel it 🙂

    I had no idea you boys were so musical. It could use a bit of hounds howling in the background, though. We are praying for Sugar today too.

    • Cathy Bennett

      Howling hounds? OMDoodle that would have certainly gotten us a Grammy LOL Emma you and your sisters could have been the backup girls #doggoneit. #nexttime 🙂

    Sending our love and prayers for Sugar, along with our two Golden’s Emma and Jesse.
    One of our previous Golden loves, Hamish, had the same surgery and it was very successful.

    God Bless

      Hi Bob – Surgeries of any kind can be frightening – but we have a tendency to focus only on the scary part. So happy to hear of Hamish’s positive experience, news like that is so uplifting. Have a great weekend and let’s all keep on smiling!

    Beautifully done. Prayers going up for Sugar and her family. Everything is better with music. Let me know if Jaxon is available to DJ Curtis’s next gig. Lol

      He can be, but he has to bring his #Doodleposse with him LOL

    Oh, that is so wonderful! That is bound to bring some cheer to Sugar’s family, who we are all thinking of. Sugar is such an amazing dog, so active at her age, and we pray that she comes through this surgery with flying colors.

      Just got the news that Sugar did just fine (Dachshund Nola) – it’s a great day!

    Good luck to Sugar! Just saw her Facebook update, glad she came through well!

    • Cathy Bennett
      January 16, 2016

      Nola – that is the best news ever! #powerinthepaw

    My iPad isn’t showing the video, so I guess I’ll have to drag out the laptop tomorrow. I’m sure it will be well worth the effort!

    So glad to read Nola’s comment – I’ll have to go check it out for myself.

    Have a great weekend!!

      I have similar problems with my iPad also. It’s a pain when I’m away from my laptop. So happy to hear that all went well with Sugar’s procedure. There in power in prayer even when they’re paws LOL Have a great weekend 🙂

    What an awesome video! I bet it will help Sugar’s hu-mom (who I’m sure is worried sick) feel just a little bit better until Sugar comes home from her surgery.

    • Cathy Bennett
      January 16, 2016

      If it makes her smile even a little bit – our job is done!!! Enjoy your weekend Pamela 🙂
