Sirius of the Week for Jul. 29 - Aug. 4, 2007
This week we feature Suzie, a 60 pound yellow Labrador who is
canine "sister" to Lhatie, whom we met last week.
Suzie's mom says,
"Suzie is our joint child. My husband and I have been together for
6 years. We both had kids when we married, and had no desire for
any more. So Suzie is our "child." We tried to get married on her
first birthday, but someone else had reserved that day at the place
we'd selected for our wedding (on private property, outside by
a river). We couldn't figure out why the other people felt the need
to get married on OUR dog's birthday! So we got married the next week.
"Suzie is very special to us. When she was 5 months old, she was
riding in the back of my husband's truck, something he has always
done with his Labs. Suzie, though, saw something she liked on the
highway and jumped out.
"She had extensive surgery to try and repair
a badly broken leg. But being a puppy, she ruined the patch job
before it was healed. So, $3000 later, she became our 3-legged
Labrador. My vet likes to say she is 3/4 Lab."
