Arrival Story:
My husband and I went to the pound in Spokane, Washington to hopefully find a puppy for my 21st birthday. We wandered around a while and then came to a kennel that had 3 puppies in it. I saw Payton all curled up with her siblings sound asleep. I knew right then and there SHE WAS THE ONE!! She wasn't adoptable for 6 more hours due to the '72 hour from drop off law'. I sat by her kennel that entire time just to make sure she'd be MY BABY!! We adopted her and made her a part of our forever family that day.

Bio:
She brought us 11 years of the most UNCONDITIONAL LOVE a human can ever imagine!! Sadly, on August 6- 2005 she was diagnosed with lung cancer (no, we're not a smoking family) and had to be put to sleep. Papa and I were both there with her until the end and I made a promise to her that we'd meet again at Rainbow Bridge someday.

The Rules:
Each pup has to write down 7 facts about themselves, who tagged them and then choose 7 pups they are going to tag in their diary. You can 'tag' a pup by either pmailing them or leaving them a rosette...it's totally up to you.

7 facts about me are....hmmmmm...let's see

1. I was mamma's 21st bday present from papa
2. I love baby carrots and red vine licorice
3. I'm terrified of thunder
4. Birds are my favorite thing to chase
5. I love going bye-bye
6. Sleeping is a favorite past time
7. I'm a pound puppy

I was tagged by my bestest bridge pal...Sassy! Now I'm off to tag my pals Cherie de Bonneville , Abby Dabby Do, Bijou, Dakota Sun, Abby, Casey and Paris!!!

 

My Tail of Devotion for Payton (1994-2005)

My sweet Payton, where do I begin?

The day we brought you home was a day I'll never forget. We waited by your kennel door for hours just waiting to be able to adopt you and make you ours. WELL spent hours!! You gave papa and I 11 years of the most unconditional love a human could ever imagine...and for that, I am forever greatful. You always had a way of making things better just by being you. It's been a year since you've been gone but somehow, each day, I feel you and know that you are here with us. It came as a huge surprise to have to let you go that day but in our hearts we knew it was best. You gave soooooo much of yourself for so many years, letting you go so you wouldn't suffer any long was our thank you to you. With a very heavy heart, we let you go knowing you would no longer be sick or be suffering. I sat down the first night without you and put my heart on paper. This is for you my girl....Mamma still and always will LOVE YOU with all my heart.


We decided her name would be Payton
By her kennel door we did sit
We had to wait to adopt her
She was the greatest birthday gift I would ever get!

Her big brown eyes, her sweet soft ears, her hugs that were always the best
And how her colors met each other, the black and white along her chest.

Very quickly you became my greatest and bestest friend
For the love we have for each other, will never see an end.

Bubba, I’ll miss you oodles
And in my heart I will never forget
The unconditional love and gratitude
That I’m not ready to lose just yet.

So promise me one thing, watch over us you will do
For our time apart won’t be forever, someday we’ll start anew.

We took away your suffering~ we let our Pooper rest.
Papa held me close to him, and said it was for the best

As I held you in my arms, I felt you slip away
A part of me went with you
A part of me died that day.

You left us with eleven years worth of memories
Which we’ll think of lots and smile
But now we have to say goodbye but only for a while.

Although I think I still hear you
And what I’d give for just one more day
But in our hearts, we felt it was time………

Oh how we wish that you could have stayed!!!!


This is a special Tail of Devotion
