Daniel was so happy to get Susie. She was a cute puppy and loved Daniel.
Susie loved hiking, and she also enjoyed eating blueberries — just like we did when they were ripe in the Pennsylvania mountains.
Carl was not happy when Susie first arrived, but he learned to love her and she him. Susie missed Carl when he died and then became buddies with Kit, our next cat.
Born near Syracuse, NY, Susie was a real snow dog. She always became excited when it snowed, and romped around in it.
Susie and Diesel were great friends. She was always very friendly with other animals.
Susie was a herding dog. She was bright, intelligent, and never happier than when she had the family all together in the back yard.
Susie also loved going on trips in the car. Maine was a frequent destination, and this was a hike up Pleasant Mountain.
Susie’s sister became a champion, but her show career was limited to a few shows as a puppy. Tricia was a good handler, and won a few blue ribbons with Susie.
One day when Susie was in her run we saw her with a stray kitten. It became her “baby” and it would wait every day for her, hiding under her doghouse. It even killed a bird and left it in Susie's bowl for her.
Christmas was a fun time for Susie. She was as excited as anyone to unwrap her presents.
