It’s a fact: certain pups catch your attention. It might be their beautiful fur, soulful eyes, or their lovable face that is the most captivating. Sometimes, it’s an illusive quality that just makes you want to reach out and hug them.
Susie Lobo, a miniature long-haired dachshund from Baltimore, Maryland, is definitely that kind of pup.
Barbara, Susie Lobo’s “Mom,” waited a year for Susie to be born; she acquired Susie from a breeder of show dogs. Born on July 30, 2003, Susie was named after a dog that Barbara had when she was nine years old.
“My parents gave her away,” Barbara said. “And it broke my heart.”
Despite frequently tearing and chewing things, Susie Lobo adapted well to her new family, which included Barbara and her husband, and pets Ashley, and FeeFee, who passed away in 2007, and 2008.
Susie is a healthy five year old, and is equally attached to Barbara and her husband. Susie’s main talent, Barbara says, is “just being cute,” and her typical day includes “just loving.”
Like all dogs, Susie has her likes and dislikes. She loves treats, especially raw bones, but hates the washer when it goes into the spin cycle.
Above all else, Susie is a loving, sweet dog, who instinctively responds to her “Mom’s” needs.
“She greets you going around your feet, and barking, and wagging her tail,” Barbara said. “She wants attention all the time, and she vocally lets you know. If I am upset and cry, she wants in my lap to lick the tears away. It’s the sweetest thing.”
