Super chill.

Toasty warm.

From therapy dog, to in-therapy dog…

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…

October 28, 2018: Suji Sunday!

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.

Out for Hong Kong waffles…

Look at her ears go!

October 14, 2018: Suji Sunday! With special guest star Lulu!

You know what day it is?  Yeah!  It’s Suji Sunday!

All smiles.

Free tummy rubs!

A sneak peek shot from her photo shoot for Rover Boutique.

Suji models the outfit she got from auntie Andria.

Lulu tries on her matching outfit – but doesn’t quite succeed.

Lulu hits the showers!

The Suji Show!

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.

December 2, 2017: Our one year anniversary with Suji!

Yep.  One year ago today we took in a special needs senior.  She came with her own wheelchair.  She mostly got around by pulling herself by her front legs, dragging her back legs behind her.  She was quiet, gentle, and kept to herself.

A lot has changed in twelve months…

Suji arrives in Toronto.

Arriving home to meet the rest of the gang.

Building up those leg muscles with hydrotherapy.

Looking cool at her laser therapy session.

Riding around in her chariot.

Working up those hind leg muscles.

She loves her walks so much that, if 10 a.m. rolls around and we haven’t taken her out, she’ll sit at your feet and bark until you put her tiny socks and booties on.

 

Surprisingly, she seems to enjoy the cold weather and loves snow.  While Lulu needs to be forced to go out, Suji needs to be forced to come back in.

Cantankerous!

Her wardrobe is more expansive than Akemi’s.

 

Motoring!

She’s settled in quite nicely.

Thanks to the Pacific Pug Rescue for sending her our way!
