Breed: Corgi-golden retriever mix
Encountered: Two rooms down from mine at a Motel 6 in Tucson.
Backstory: Sugar and her human had one more day at a Motel 6 before catching flights home to Edmonton, Alberta. They’d come south to spend Thanksgiving with friends in Patagonia, Arizona. Sugar was flying home on Continental, but her owner on another airline, because Continental’s human fare was a bit steep.
Sugar welcomed us when we arrived, came into our room, and even tried out the bed.
If you’re wondering why the shadow in the photo seems to be larger than the dog pictured, it’s because it belongs to Ace, who, as you might guess, was pretty sweet on Sugar.
