We were lucky enough to have them in our lives! I learned SO much from Sue, as a breeder, as a friend, and as a person. She taught me to recognize quality and not be "kennel blind"...if you have something that isn't good you should be able to see that too. She taught me to second guess what is presented as the truth, and to cherish the value of true friends.
Phil sired litters here, and his puppies continue to bless this earth. I am honored to have this bloodline still in my breeding program. Sue meant the world to me, she taught me so much about breeding, but more importantly, she taught me how to be a better human being. She was my biggest cheerleader, and she laughed with me at my mistakes. I cherish the time I spent caring for her when she was sick, we had SO many honest heart to heart talks. She shared many secrets with me that changed my life. It makes my heart happy to know that they are together forever now.
Rest in Peace sweet Phil! This was one very special dog! Loved by so many, but mostly by my dear friend Sue. There are so many stories of Phil, he leaves behind quite the legacy! I am blessed to still have his son, and his grand daughter. So his legacy will continue here at Crossbrook! He is in heaven with Sue tonight, laying next to her eating peanut M&M's. All is well in heaven tonight!
