“I set out early the next morning. After hours of traveling, I arrived at the shelter and was directed to Sugar’s cage. I sat down to talk to her.”
When a staffer opened her door, this trusting little mix came out and plopped herself right in my lap.”
“I always say I fostered her for about five minutes before I knew she’d be mine. Right from the start Sugar was reasonably well behaved, seemed to learn her new name in a heartbeat, and came when called.”
“I named him Roscoe, and Sugar’s story wouldn’t be complete without him.” (Neither would her excellent view out the window, courtesy of a certain canine footstool).
“They bonded immediately and became best of buddies.”
This character deserves his own Dog of the Day page somewhere. (Any takers?)
“She must not have had toys to play with in her former life, because it took quite a while for her stuffed animal chase and play tug-of-war instincts to kick in.”
“Sugar is very polite. When I hand out treats, she won’t semi-attack like the other dogs do. Instead, she sits in the background and cocks her head as if to say “May I have a treat too, please?”
“I look forward to many more happy days with my sweet Sugar Plum Fairy.”
Sugar is darling! She is definitely a keeper. Love my 3 cardigans. They are snuggle bunnies too. Enjoy becoming a furball after!!! Yours, Robin from Annapolis, MD
This is a great way to start my Friday. Thank you for sharing Sugar's story.

I'm so glad to hear that Sugar is doing so well!
So adorable! Glad she was saved. And, yay for Corgi mixes! My boyfriend and I have what we've been told is a Corgi/Dachshund mix, but we really don't care what he is since we love him so much. 🙂
This is your son Mother (Marci) I actually enjoyed reading that. I miss my sugie and roscoe! Good writing mother!
Wonderful story; great pictures. Thank you for the smiles.

Great story! She is such a cool mix! Neat! So cute.
This does my heart good. Imagine being on death row and being given a reprieve!! It takes a special person to take in an unknown to care for and love. There's special places in Heaven for those such as this. I hope she has a long and contented life.
I love how Sugar and Roscoe adore each other. What a pair. I would love to watch them all day long because the love they have for each other warms my heart. Give you babies kisses for me.
