It feels like a million or so years ago that I sent an email to the incredibly talented dog chef with the pretty Golden retriever asking if they might be interested in hosting a dog food blog hop with me. I was pretty green and utterly shocked when Sugar agreed to host Tasty Tuesday with us. Over the years, we were inspired over and over by the homemade dog treat recipes Sugar shared, by her beautiful photos and most of all, by the spirit of this sweet dog that always seemed to be smiling. 

It is with a broken heart 💔 that I write this. Today has been the hardest day of my life. My Sweet SUGAR has crossed the rainbow 🌈 bridge. SUGAR was a fighter; she survived two major surgeries (tongue and splenectomy). For the past days, she tried to get better but couldn’t. Unexpected ‘lymphoma’ occurred in her body. SUGAR lived a long happy life. I will miss her beautiful smile and happy spirit. I had the best fifteen years, seven months and six days of my life. I love you SUGAR #bestdogever #oneofakind #irreplaceable Golden Love ❤️️ ~ mom Rosalyn

Last week, the world and more importantly, her people said good bye to Sugar. It’s a loss the whole community feels sharply. Sugar has been a pillar of the pet blogging community and a friend the entire time I have been doing this. I know she inspired not just me, but so many of the pet bloggers I know and admire.

It felt only right that even though we stopped celebrating Tasty Tuesday a few years back, we link up one last time in honour of the sweet golden who meant so much to so many.

If you followed Sugar for any amount of time, you’ll know that she loved banana and her Mom spent untold hours coming up with so many banana dog treats recipes to make her smile. 

Today, in Sugar’s honour, we’re sharing 5 tasty banana dog treat recipes

Good bye SUGAR, may your spirit run free and the banana treat flow freely. Until we meet again.

In honour of Sugar, please make sure you drop by Sugar’s blog or the Golden Woofs Facebook page to pass on your condolences and maybe make some banana treats for the special pooch in you life. Their time with us is short; we’d better spoil them all we can. 

We will be hosting one last Tasty Tuesday blog hop in honour of our co-host Sugar, who sadly passed away this week. Please add your links paying tribute to and inspired by Sugar. No sponsored posts, please. This is not a traditional Tasty Tuesday hop – this one is all about Sugar.
