• I work with a gal that was in the Peace Corps in 1996. She purchased a "village dog" for $4 in the Central African Republic, along the Ubangui River.

    She named her Sukani. She was red & white and resembled a basenji a tiny bit for her coloring. She barked, wasn't prey driven, and had long fur once she moved to Washington!

    She is putting her to sleep today. I have pictures of Sukani in an email but can't seem to copy them right to post them here. She turned 14 in January. I know she probably outlived her littermates by 10 years.

    I am thinking of her today…....


  • Sorry to hear that a special dog friend is going over the bridge. Pass on my condolences to your friend.


  • Very sorry to hear of Sukani

  • Houston

    So sorry to hear of Sukani and your friend. My thoughts are with her today.


  • Tell your friend that I am very sorry for her loss. It's the most difficult but most kind decision she can ever make. Sukani will be in a better place, remembering with happiness her wonderful life with her human companion and patiently waiting for them to meet again.


  • Please pass on my condolences to your friend. What a wonderfully long life Sukani had. I'd love to hear the story from village dog/Peace Corp. to Washington.


  • Sorry to hear about the loss of this special friend…
    Our thoughts go out to the people that known her...
