Sirius of the Week for Feb. 26 - Mar. 4, 2006

Our star this week is Sugarfoot, who lives with her person-mom and dad and canine "sister". Her person mom writes,

Sugarfoot is a registered Toy Fox Terrier and weighs about 10 pounds. She will be 4 years old in August, 2006. We bought her for one of our sons and when he left our house we kept her. We were surprised how attached we got to her. Now I don't like to leave her at home, since I love having her with me all the time. She sleeps with us and is truly my little "side kick" since she always wants to be up close and touching me. My husband and I are retired and at home with the dogs all day and enjoy spoiling them.

"My sister can't believe the whole thing since I previously had never had dogs in the house. She had always been the "dog nut" and now I am probably a bigger dog spoiler than she is. When she realized I had become so crazy about Sugarfoot, she phoned me and jokingly said, "who are you and what have you done with my sister?"

"Sugarfoot follows me from room to room all day long and always wants to be wherever I am. I guess she thinks that's her "job". She has a cute gentle little spirit. She loves to play. She will fetch when you throw a ball or stuffed toy but instead of willingly giving you the toy she likes to play tug of war with it. Sometimes she'll bring one of her toys laying it down in front of me, sit up on her hind legs trying to get me to play with her. I think she likes to play better than anything.

"After supper it's a tradition now that she wants my husband to get on the floor with her and Honeybun and play rowdy. The dogs like to run around him barking and trying to get him to catch them. The dogs run through the house going as fast as they can. When we both sit down in the den they think they are supposed to entertain us. They wrestle and roll around on the floor with each other.

"Sugarfoot did not have a problem accepting Honeybun into our home. They act like they enjoy each other.

"Sugarfoot loves it when my mom and dad or anyone comes to visit. She gets all excited, jumping up and down and will run get a toy. She wants to get up in my mom's lap and wants my dad to play fetch and tug of war.

"She and Honeybun have truly become members of the family. They stay in the house all the time except to go out and "potty". She doesn't have accidents and we can't imagine a better little dog. We think she must surely be perfect."
