She came to live with us in May 2005 at the tender age of 10 months. She was supposed to be a shy girl, and her foster parents warned us not to be disappointed if she didn’t take to us right away. Sunny B had other plans because within seconds of walking in the door; she ran across the room and leaped into my arms. It was an instant bond. The foster parents were speechless at first!
When it was time to go, she did not hesitate to jump in the car, and was truly excited to go to her forever home.
When she got there, she was greeted by a 16-year-old cat, Shiloh. Sunny instantly wanted to play, but the cat would have nothing to do with her. But Sunny kept at it and they soon became friends. She shared everything, sometimes being overly generous.
Sunny loved going to the beach, the lake, the river. And she always had to find the biggest stick!
We had several squirrels who would antagonize her on the back deck. During the building of the 2nd part of the deck, with no sides up yet, she saw one and jumped off, flying through the air with the squirrel laser focused in her brain! Thank goodness, she was fine after the jump….and so was the squirrel.
Sunny was a sun dog, so her name fit well! There were many times when she was on the deck laying in the sun, or in the fall leaves staring into the sun with her eyes closed.
