|2009 Christmas Card from the Commanding Officer, employees and Suzanna of "Depot"|
During my visit with the CO, I learned that Suzanna was named after the Queen's favorite book - Susannah of the Mounties and there was a copy of the book in the CO's office. Suzanna does get out of the office so she does not spend all of her time behind a desk.
The question you may be asking is whether I am envious of this quiet and patient dog versus my boisterous, teenage temperament, sometimes stubborn, shoe loving, ball carrying retriever ? Would I miss the nudges to be entertained and played with after supper or the grab and snatch actions? The answer is that you fall in love with all of your pets - the good habits and the habits that test your patience. Eventually we all get older and slow down, so I need to enjoy the teenager and adult years of my dog while I can and be active with him. It is good to play for as long as you can.
