Sue’s Life So Far
Sue, a six year old Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix, was thrown out as a puppy and rescued by a farm family. She became the daughter’s beloved pet. Sue was happy there for a couple of years until the family began raising sheep. The sheep had problems with Sue, so she landed in a small pen with another dog where she stayed until I adopted her. In that instant, she went from farm dog to city dog!
Sue, the City Dog
Sue adapted to city life and I had her for almost a year before we went through the pet therapy evaluation. We have been a registered Pet Therapy Team with Alliance of Therapy Dogs (formerly Therapy Dogs, Inc.) for 3 years, visiting Lexington Medical Center. We are now serving Orangeburg and will be The Regional Medical Center’s first Pet Therapy Team, beginning in June 2014. We also visit Longwood Nursing Home and Magnolia Place memory facility. Sue loves to go to work, dancing when we get out of the car at any facility!
Rocky, her buddy
Sue has a “brother” at our house. Rocky is a Black Lab/Great Dane mix who loves to run and play with Sue. Rocky isn’t a Pet Therapy dog, so he has to stay home when Sue “goes to work”. But, he is always happy to see her come home again.
Sue likes to run
For exercise, Sue and I like to run. We run through our neighborhood and the surrounding ones. If we see any children, Sue always stops to visit. When we get back to our house, Sue loves to snuggle next to someone and take a nap!
