Dr. Suzie unfortunately said goodbye to her beloved Standard Poodle Bert on February 15th, 2021. Dr. Suzie wrote a tribute to share their incredible memories together.
“Bert’s life was lived to the fullest. He got to see and travel more than most people do. His memories are everywhere. It is taking time, but the sting of the punch in the gut feeling I get whenever I come across something that makes me think of him is slowly feeling more like a warming of my heart. I never knew before that those two feeling were so damn close. There will never be another dog like Bert.”
