Hard to believe that when we first got her, Suji needed a wheelchair to get around. Now, even though she and Lulu get a lift to the park, she’s a dedicated walker. And if we’re ever late for her morning or evening walks, she let us know it!
Inspired by Tidying Up with Marie Kondo, Lulu and I look to clean up her toy box…
Hmmmm. This could be a problem. Whenever I’m working, Suji has to be sitting up on the couch as well, pressed up against me. At night, she’s on the bed, also pressed up against me when she sleeps. Apparently, when I leave the house or am gone for a while, she paces anxiously and, when I come through the door on my return, she absolutely loses it.
I am already feeling guilty about being away for her for nine whole days when we travel to Japan at the end of November.
Quelle excitation! A few days ago, Suji got the first-page feature in a Japanese dog magazine. The Aiken No Tomo profile offered insight into her past (rescued a little over a year and a half ago), ailments (some rear leg weakness), likes (treats and walks), dislikes (vacuum cleaners and loud noises), and her Instagram page (newoldpugsuji).
At the same time, she was being spotlighted as part of a dog rescue pop-up event in at one of the major Shinjuku department stores.
