I am so sorry to hear of The passing of Sue. I knew her because she and I had golden littermates . My Stevie Ray if Violets Litter brother . We often shared training advice in online texts to each other. I am quite sure she is dancing with the dogs in eternal light and peace.

I wish I had the opportunity to have known Sue much earlier in life. What I do know .....She was a lovely lady who enjoyed being around people and fur babies.....She became a Sarasota Busker who played the piano and then started to learn the ukulele and couldn't wait to get back to buskin......she will be missed.RIP dear friend.

Enjoyed playing dog agility at “Erbe field” at her home in New Boston with her fur kids. She was a beautiful and fiercely independent woman. We will miss her spirit!
