So Long, Little Muse

as only dogs know how to be happy
with only the autonomy
of their shameless spirit.”

Goodbye, sweet Dolce...and thanks. 


  1. What a sweet dog! Because of your book Sue, he will always be with you and the world. From that little bundle of fur, what an inspiration has, and will lead to such better lives for children and their children to come! G-d bless you and Dolce.

  2. Rest in peace, sweet Dolce. You made your mark in this world and we will never forget you.

  3. Your muse will always be there...in your book....in you." Joan Davis :)

  4. Dear Susan,

    I just saw on your site that sweet Dolce has passed away. I just want to say that it made me cry. Tho' I did not suffer sexual abuse, I did come from a very messed up home, and a little dog who loved me best - unconditionally - helped to get me through it all. I know what it means to have that bond and to be so grateful for the gifts they give us. Sorry it is belated but I am so sorry for your loss. I do agree with the shared sentiment on your blog that he will be with you always, and that through you he has helped so many people.

    May all beings be happy….
