My Other Mama, Sunny

Sunny Marie Smith 1997-2009

I don't feel like talking much today. My other Mama, Sunny, went to the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. Mama says Sunny was 12 years old. She had been kinda tired lately, then she fell down Sunday night. Daddy took her to Dr. Koster yesterday and he said she had a really big tumor in her tummy. I don't know what a tumor is, but I miss Sunny.

She was my first doggie friend. When I came here as a little puppy, I really, really wanted to PLAY!! I had to bug Sunny ALOT, then she finally played with me. She also cleaned me sometimes. And she showed me where to go potty. Mama says she took me "under her paw."

Sunny's Daddy was a really goofy St Bernard named Argyle. Her Mama was a Rottweiler named Aspen. She has lived with my Mama and Daddy since she was 6 weeks old. Sunny was very strict with all of us, but she never harmed a fly. Mama says she was the "playground watcher" because she would watch us carefully when we played and rush in to break us up if she thought we were being too rough.

Sunny LOVED to eat. Just the other day, she stole part of a rack of ribs from my Daddy when he was bringing them in from the smoker!! She could also steal a burger patty RIGHT out from between the buns!! She was lucky, she didn't have to stand on her tippy toes to counter surf like I do.

I know Sunny is happily playing now with Buddy, Shelby and Stanley. But I miss her.

Here is a video Mama found of us when I was just a few months old. I thought I was pretty tough, but now I realize that she was letting me win!

So sorry to hear about Sunny! :( Seems like she lived a long and happy life with her fur-buddies. Any dog would be eternally thankful for that.

You have a nice little bunch of animals. Cute blog.
