I will still get to see Cooper and follow along with his life as he was adopted by my boss’s nanny. She will be using our clinic for her vet services and my boss will keep me informed on how the little bugger is doing. The report today is that Cooper is now being switched to adult food as he as lost weight getting exercise playing with my boss’s kids. He is doing great with his re potty training and has wormed his way into his new owner’s hearts. I believe this was the best choice for Cooper and happy he is in a loving home and that he found a home so soon after his shelter stay. A rescue success!
Since I am sharing my rescue success story about my friends dog I thought it was only appropriate to finished this post with a tribute to my departed friend. After seeing her obituary in the paper I needed to do a proper tribute to her as she so deserved that.
Here is what the paper said: Meyer, Susan (Nee Lipovsek ) Passed away Monday, January 13, 2014, age 67years. Dear sister of George (Karen) and John Lipovsek. Dear friend of JoAnn Stancer. Also survivied by nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends. Private services were held.
Here is my tribute:
Susan J Meyer
4/14/46 – 1/13/14
Susan Jane Meyer of Greenfield, WI passed away 1/13/14 during a hospital stay for COPD. Sue worked for Allis Chalmers until they closed from there she traveled the US and Europe. She spend a few years in Texas where she met her beloved dog Bucky. Sue had a love for animals as it showed when she worked in various Veterinary Hospitals helping the client’s pet’s and then rescuing several dogs and cats that nobody else wanted. I JoAnn had the privilege of meeting Sue at the first clinic I worked in after I graduated from Veterinary Technician school, this was back in June of 1990. From then a beautiful long friendship had started and we ended up working at three different clinics together. At the various clinics she became good friends with some of the other staff and clients which she continued to see after her time in the clinic was done, she always showed up for our monthly girls night out evenings where we got together with the gals we used to work with, some of those gals I still work with. During this time Sue was there for me during the loss of my mom and dad at such a young age. If I was to have a second mom I told her it would of been her, Sue never had children and she told me the same that if she was to have a daughter she would’ve wanted one like me. She told me so many times that my parents would’ve been proud of what I became. That meant the world to me. After being a Veterinary Assistant her last job was at American Family Insurance where she worked in the legal department for over 10 years. She retired from American Family when her health declined from COPD. Sue loved to gamble and traveled to other states to gamble. Her favorite place to go was Las Vegas, Sue was the first person to invite me along with her on one of her trips to Vegas and showed me the ropes. We stayed at the Westward Ho and she invited me to the famous “HO-waiaan Luau and Dinner, it was a time I will never forget. Sue loved Arizona and had hopes to retire there those dreams were cut short and she never made it there. She spend her time at her home in Greenfield with her animals. Sue was preceded in death by her mother and father, her animals Missy, Bucky, Pepper, Bicky, Josie, Elliott, Raymond, Stewie, & Oscar Meyer. She left behind her 2 brothers George and John, nephews, grand nephews and nieces as well as her dog Cooper who will miss hanging with his momma each and every day. God Bless you Sue may you be pain free caring for all the animals over the rainbow bridge. Sue’s ashes along with her animals will be spread on my property as well as some will be going to Vegas where she can forever pull the one arm bandit.
