is not an original import but she is one of the first generation
pups born to original imports. Her mom was my very special Dolly
so rescuing her was indeed the right thing to do.
Monday after we lost Lucy, I received an email regarding a
female clumber for sale. Once I checked the ad, the birth date
caught my eye because it was exactly the same as my Roofus and
upon checking, I found out that she is his full sister.
She is also a half sister to Amos and the Dollykins, and
a family member to so many others.
was born in the same Amish puppy mill as Roofus and spent the
first part of her life there with him until they were sold at an
auction. There were six or seven clumbers in this litter and now
two have been accounted for and it does my heart good knowing
they are safe and sound.
did not rescue Sugar Plum from a puppy miller but actually
bought her from a person who had. She told me that while at the
puppy mill, Sugar didn’t even have a name for she was never
called and she never mattered.
She was just beginning to learn how to be a pet when
things changed and her owner had to sell her. Thankfully, Lucy
sent her to me and now she is meeting long lost family and
learning how to “just be”.
Plum as I like to call her has a great spirit and has managed to
get through her rough beginnings better than Roofus.
It took Roofus a long time to give his heart completely
but with Sugar, she came in like she knew she was home, like she
has always been a part of my family.
am overjoyed to be able to have another of Dolly’s babies
under roof and I’m sure she and Lucy are looking down, smiling
at all that are safe. Sugar
is not only a beautiful clumber but she is full of life and has
already given me her heart. I cannot walk without fear of
stepping on her as she stays right underfoot. Often I find her
stopping, sitting down just to look up at me. I can’t help but
wonder what she is thinking. Her sweet amber eyes are full of
love and she has made a heavy heart feel so much lighter.
Sugar will never know another harsh word or hand and that
confirms that I am doing the right thing by “daring to
feel very blessed to have this wonderful sweet baby of Dolly’s
join my family and I know without a doubt that she was sent to
me with the help of Dolly and Lucy. The love she has already
given me in such a short while is just amazing and words cannot
express the joy I feel.
