Susie is a very old lady now. We think she is about 17 years old but we're not sure because we got her as a rescued dog. She was hit by a car when she was about 2 years old and her owners dumped her at a vets and gave a false address. She had a very badly broken leg which had to be pinned back together. That's when she came to live with us on the farm. She came to us a quiet, docile little thing that just wanted to sit on the sofa and cuddle into someone. Then we got the cast removed... Suddenly we had the Tasmanian devil! :-) a spinning bundle of energy that never stopped bringing us sticks to throw. She was a keen footballer in her day and made funny little Chewbacca noises when she dribbled the ball back to us. She's since retired from her professional football days although on bright sunny days when her arthritis isn't too bad she's not averse to the odd kick around. She was jet black when she came to us but with the passing years she has come to look more and more like a little badger. I love her to bits.

Susie is still living a comfortable life on the farm although she's really not very active at all anymore. She's now completely deaf and her eyesight isn't what it once was but she doesn't seem too worried. She knows her way around just fine so she still has a bit of a wander around the farm every morning - just checking everything is in order! She has a good shout about things in the evening and usually wants out for a circuit round the house at about 11pm! Her days are spent snoozing on the sofa, usually upside down with her legs in the air (we think she learnt to sleep this way when she had her broken leg, to take the pressure off the injured bone). She is a very loved dog. My dad holds her on his knee, like a baby, at the breakfast table every morning and feeds her bits of bacon or sausage. She falls asleep on his knee most evenings. She's very much my dad's dog. We've had her 17 years now, a very long time. Happy birthday Soosums ;-)

Sadly our little Susie passed away last September at 19 years old. She had a long and happy life and is very much missed.
