Saying Goodbye to a Friend

Saying Goodbye to a Friend

Saying Goodbye to a Friend

Saying goodbye is always tough. Saying goodbye to a good friend, knowing it’s permanent, is brutal. Last week we said goodbye to one of the most beautiful dog friends one can imagine – Sugar the Golden Retriever. Our hearts broke when her mother announced that she’d crossed the Rainbow Bridge. I’d like to devote today’s space to a photo montage of our good friend, Sugar. We’ll be saying goodbye to our friend in our own way. Feel free to weigh in in the comments and leave your sentiments on her page, Sugar the Golden Retriever.

Sugar the Golden Retriever - saying goodbye to friends is the hardest thing

Sugar was a good friend to Jones Natural Chews. She sampled and wrote about our treats, which we appreciated.

Sugar the Golden is in treat heaven! Do you know how much to give your dog when it comes to treats?
I loved Sugar’s wink and smile. She just glowed all the time.

She made an adorable video for Jones.

But Sugar and her parents are just downright good friends. They’re warm, friendly people who loved their dog, and it showed. Our heart goes out to them in their time of loss.

A lovely senior Golden Retriever
Sugar loved everyone. Her loss is deeply felt.

And I just honestly enjoyed the time I spent with this smiling pup. Saying goodbye to friends is hard. Goodbye, Sugar. You were well loved, which makes the parting that much more bitter sweet. <3


I almost feel guilty announcing our giveaway today, but it must be done. Your dogs would never forgive me if I didn’t, and Sugar would understand. So while we mourn one loss, we celebrate the life around us. I celebrate with treats. It’s just what I do. Join me? Click this sentence to find the entry for the cute little Chickee Snapz and Beefee Snapz from Jones Natural Chews. Your dog will thank you for entering the giveaway.

  1. I am trying hard not to cry again after reading this. Sugar was such a sweet soul and the whole community is morning with her mom. We were looking forward to seeing her again this year at BlogPaws. 🙁

  2. Even though it’s been quite some time since I visited Sugar’s or any other blogs, I cried my eyes out when I read about Sugar on Facebook. My heart goes out to her family. What a blessing sweet Sugar was.

  3. i am so upset over this, every time i think abt Sugar i get misty eyed. Sugar was just 1 month older than my oldest gal. Evie is almost blind, deaf, disc disease, dementia and terminal cancer, sarcoma in her chest. i love seeing Sugar and all of her adventures in social media. she seemed to have the best attitude, always with that lovely big smile and a twinkle in her eye. she was the sunshine. she was an icon, never will there be another one like this sweet loving gal. she will be missed by so many. my heart goes out to Rosalyn and Ron. i never met them or Sugar but i felt that i knew Sugar and Rosalyn thru social media and her blog. i still wonder if it is all a dream that i will never get to meet this wonderful little gal who brought so much joy and happiness to so many, even non dog owners. she was a angel.

    • Sugar was such a dear. Maybe you should consider attending a BlogPaws conference if one happens near you? There are dog people EVERYWHERE.

  4. It was devastating news about our beloved Sugar. She truly was a one of a kind dog, she touched everyone who met her. I’m glad I had the pleasure of knowing her and falling in love with her like everyone else does. My heart goes out to Rosalyn and her family, and all those who loved Sugar, a Golden Jewel. Lovely tribute to her today, very sweet of you to do.
    Love & Biscuits,
    Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them

  5. I was so upset to hear of Sugar’s passing. I couldn’t wait to go to my first Blog Paws this year and meet her. I saw in several posts that she wasn’t feeling well and I Just kept saying to myself fight it Sugar, keep fighting because I really want to meet you this year. I cried my eyes out when I read the post about her passing. So upset that I will never get to meet her.

    • Oh Christine! Our hearts all broke. I’m so sorry you didn’t get to meet her. But you’re going to meet so many fabulous dogs this year!
