The First Time Ever We Saw Sugar's Smile :)

Rocco and Sugar the first time they met -- at Chicago's Lincoln Park in May 2013

If you don't know Sugar the Golden Retriever, you should.

Sugar is the poster dog for fit dogs everywhere. At 14 1/2, she's living life to the fullest and staying active physically, mentally and emotionally.

Today, Sugar is undergoing surgery to remove a mass on her spleen and our thoughts are with her and her family. We've had countless opportunities to play and enjoy doggie life with Sugar -- from romps in Chicago's Lincoln Park to exploring Los Angeles.

So today we're thinking about all the good times past and looking forward to seeing Sugar again very soon.

Our pal Oz the Terrier is hosting a Blog Hop to help send lots of smiles and positive thoughts to Sugar and her family. At the bottom of this post you'll see both hops this week -- When I See Sugar Smile and our regular FitDog Friday hop.

Please join me in sending smiles and good thoughts for Sugar as you kick off your FitDog weekends!



The fun and games continue every Friday with FitDog Friday, the weekly Blog Hop brought to you by To Dog With LoveSlimDoggy and My GBGV Life to promote a healthy active lifestyle for pets (and their people, too!). Join in every Friday by linking up your FitDog story or visiting the blogs in the hop.
