Forever Golden: Dedicated to Sugar

Today, we bid a golden farewell to an icon in the blogging world - Sugar, the Golden Retriever, star of Golden Woofs

Sugar truly needs no introduction as I think we'd be hard-pressed to find a blogger who does not know of the beautiful Sugar, whether it is from the Tasty Tuesday blog hop where Sugar shared so many (p)awesome Tasty Treat recipes with all of us, to her (This Moment) See Beautiful blog hop, and the wise words of Sugar's Golden Wisdoms,

It truly is a sad time here in Blogville when we lose a friend. While we may be a virtual community, our friendships and support for each other are true; both in good times and sad times, we are there for each other as most of us know all-too-well the deep sadness from the loss of a very special furry best friend. It is through such loss, that we can reach out to support another who is going though one of life's most heartbreaking times. I wish us all only happiness and "beautiful moments" with our beloved furkids, but, alas, we know that is not how the cycle of life goes. So let us all always embrace all those moments with our beloved canine companions, however many we are blessed with.

Sugar, you brought us all so many smiles of happiness and pure golden moments over the years. May you be sharing all of your Golden glow with the furangels beyond The Rainbow Bridge. Please give my sweet boy Gibson one of those precious beautiful Sugar smiles for me. He was a big fan of your treats! All of them!

I had the pleasure of interviewing Sugar's mom, Rosalyn, as part of an article on healthy eating I wrote for Hudson Valley Paw Print Magazine, where she shared one of those fantastic Sugar treats, Banana Coconut Dog Pancakes, with the readers. This is the issue featuring the recipe, that is on page 14.

To view my article, "Adding Some Healthy Zip to Your Dog's Meal Time," featuring Rosalyn's expert advice, along with Sugar's recipe, click HERE. The article starts on page 8.

"Best friends live forever in the memories we keep."

 Run free, sweet Sugar, and be forever Golden.

  1. Sugar was such a beauty and a friend to ALL.

    Woos - Ciara and Lightning

  2. Silly mom. That would be MISTY and Lightning.

  3. I'm holding on tightly to my pack while I read through all the hop tributes. Sugar was really special - and you're right - we have to cherish these moments as our dogs age.

  4. We sure are sad that dear Sugar had to go. The Dad got to hug Sugar several times and says she was a sweet as her beautiful smile.
