My Little Poodle Peanut, seen here in the picture, Passed away on Valentinesday.
In 1993 The Good LORD gave us a new blessing to our home in the likes of PEANUT. It was the first time I had ever had a tea cup poodle in my life. Someone in our area had dropped off or dumped off an entire herd of poodles they didn't want anymore, and Peanuts mother came to my door, 4 days later she gave birth to 4 babies. We found homes for all of them but kept PEANUT for ourselves. She is still today a blessing in my heart having known her.
Every Year on Valentinesday, Me and my 2 Children hold a family tradition of going out to get each other Valentinesday Love Goodies. We always pile in the car and go to the nearest store to splurge our ten dollars on each other, buying cards and candy goodies.
This Year we desided to go to Pets Mart to get the dogs a goody as we ventured out to go get ours. So we desided to take our mini pin Buddy and tea cup poodle PEANUT with us. We all got ready to go and Peanut was jumping up and down wanting to go so bad, just like she always did when someone mentioned the word, By By. So as always I told her to come on lets go get in the car. And Peanut and Buddy both ran out the door to the car before any of us were even out the door. Jumping up and down wanting in the car we all opened the car doors and piled in.
Well *I* thought my daughter had picked up Peanut and had her in her arms and my son had picked up buddy.
So not thinking any more about it, we all piled in the car and slammed the doors!
Little did any of us know PEANUT Wasnt IN the car yet! :( Peanut had her front paws on the rim of the door waiting to be picked up and got SLAMMED IN THE HEAD BY THE DOOR! @_@ OMG!
WE were heart broken when we realised what had happened and got out of the car! I rushed and picked Peanut up, I ran to the front porch with her but by the time I had gotten to the porch Peanuts ear was bleeding so badly there was no way to stop it! Peanut was uncontious! She wouldnt wake up! Her ear was bleeding her to death and catching the wits about us, I told my crying children that before PEANUT dies we had the chance to say our last good byes to her! (I CRY AS I TYPE THIS STORY BECAUSE I MISS HER SO MUCH) So as her last nurves jumped as she passed into HEAVEN We all were able to tell her goodbye and how much we love her.
We never did get back in the car that weekend. None of us even wanted to go anywhere.
My daughter and I took Peanut inside the house and gave her a bath to get all the blood off of her, while my son was man enough to wash our front porch off. After Peanuts bath we placed her on a chair for Buddy to see and come sniff so that he would see where Peanut went and Why she would soon be gone forever.
I placed Peanut in a shoe box, I place her shoe box on a table in my livingroom and I Placed her picture on top of the ShoeBox and Used Fake flowers to decorate her WAKE. All my friends came over that saturday to pay their respects to PEANUT, and on sunday they all came back for her funeral. We buried Peanut in our front yard in the garden outside our front door.
I truely know that if there was a member of my family I could have offered JESUS on that Valentinesday, in place of one of my children, or husband or myself, PEANUT would have gladly stepped up and saved our lives, who knows? We may very well have gotten into an accident that day had we gone anywhere. The Lord giveth and the Lord took her away. One day in glory I hope to live with PEANUT again.
