Happy Birthday Suky

It's someone's birthday today.

My special girl Suky is 8 years old.

Sometimes I'm asked about her name and it's meaning.  The name Suky is a derivative of Susan, and meaning a lily, the same as Susan does ...  I didn't know this when I named her, the coincidence blew my mind!!  

She was actually called Suky in memory of Jessie, Alan's Mum who sadly died the day before Suky was born.  She loved dogs that snuggled up to you and said they were 'sooky sooky' dogs.  Meaning timid and needy in Scottish terminology.  Hence Suky's name is a tribute to a very special lady.

She's here somewhere, she's one of the pups with her Mum at just a couple of days old.

The day we picked her up, December 2011 ... just eight weeks old.  

Suky Midnight Star with her Mum Lady Midnight Star, her dad is a black Pug called Kenmilleven Graphite

With protective 'big sister' Rosy, the day after we brought her home.

And running on the farm with both sisters.

Tucked into Dad's coat when it got too cold, and little legs got too tired.

Toilet trained  :-)

A tired Dad makes for a good mattress, here with all her doggy sisters October 2014.

Another year and the diet is working well, 2015

2016 and a svelte and happy Suky.

But even so ... fitting into one bed with the family can sometimes feel like a squeeze. 2017

2018 sees Suky modelling socks ... and not looking too happy about it!!

And now in 2019, she's my constant companion both at the Van and back in Wales.

Happy Birthday Suky.  πŸŽ‚
