June 1995 – June 2009
Hi, my name is Lady Sundance of Windsor but my loving family called me Sundance, Sunny, Sunny Bear or Sissy. Some of my favorite things were brand new tennis balls, jeep rides with Dad, swimming at Red Feather Lakes, getting hugs from Matt and lying in my front yard in the warm wonderful sunshine. As a pup, my Mom would get so scared when I’d go swimming. Little did she know that I had webbed feet and was a wonderful swimmer. As I grew up I realized it was a lot of fun chasing Dad’s lures when he would cast out. When he fished, it was like a game of fetch only in the water! When I wasn’t swimming I was enjoying my big backyard. My family had a beautiful vegetable garden and I was thrilled when I learned I could help myself to all the corn I could eat. My neighbors watched with amazement as I picked the corn, pulled off the husks and ate the ear clean. Needless to say I got the nickname “Corndog” and my Dad claimed I was worse than the crows when it came to getting to the corn before he did! I was a very spoiled dog from the beginning and I have my Mom to thank for this. My Dad vowed that she could get a dog but ‘the dog would live outside in a kennel’. Little did he know that once I stole my Mom’s heart I would become the family member that had everything including her very own seat in the jeep that I refused to share. I pretty much ran the house and life revolved around me. As it should have been since I was always told I was the best girl ever! I lived close to an elementary school growing up and all the kids knew my name. Sometimes they were late to school because they spent too much time talking to me. After school, they would ring the doorbell to ask my Mom if I could come out and play. My family said I gave love unconditionally and I had the biggest and kindest heart. I know my family will miss me greeting them when they get up in the morning and when they come home after work. I know they will miss my paw hugs and they will miss giving me hugs and kisses. I know they loved me with all their hearts and it will be painful to lose me. They are going to feel sad because their baby girl isn’t with them each day but know I’m watching over them now. Know that now I’m their own special angel and I look forward to seeing them again.
