Parti All Nite in Salem
The story of Salem....
Susan Abeln, Kitsue Poodles, was my dearest friend in all the world. She was my mentor, my best friend. I lost Sue to cancer in October of 2016, and as devastating as it was....she trusted me with something very precious to her. Let me introduce you to Salem :) When Sue saw a picture of Salem as a baby, she saw something very special. After a sudden change of events, this puppy became available to Sue through All Nite Parti Poodles in Ohio. Sue named her Sudz...after the sudden change of events. She loved this girl so much! When Sue first got sick she asked me "Linda, if something happens to me, I want you to have her." My response was "You are not going anywhere!"...well cancer had other plans. I promised Sue I would take her, love her, and continue the breeding program with her. I also told Sue I was going to change her name, I was not calling a dog Sudz :) I told her I would name her Salem, after the beautiful place Sue lived out her final days. Sue agreed that Salem was the perfect name for her. The place in Salem where Sue lived is beautiful, and so many wonderful memories of that place will always be mine. Things change, life goes on, and along with the memories....I have this beautiful girl.
Salem has a heart of gold, loves anyone or anything she meets. She is kind, and she is gentle. She is the epitome of what Sue strives to achieve in her dogs. Her health testing came back with beautiful results! Her hips are OFA rated EXCELLENT. Sue saw such wonderful potential in this girl, and she trusted me with her. I will do everything in my power to deserve this honor!
When I look at this picture, Salem is there on the right, sound asleep in all her sweetness....you can see why Sue thought she was something very special :)
