Quick Bio:

Ridding in the car with her head out the window. Barking at the mailman when he delivers the mail.

Our beloved dog Sweat Pea had to be put to slept about a year ago after loosing her sight, smell, and hearing. She was 21 years old. Some amazing fact about Sweat Pea besides the fact that she lived for so long inlude: At age 11 and never having had puppies herself, Sweat Pea became an instant mother to a box of KITTENS(yes kittens). Left abandon on our front porch. She even developed breast milk and feed the hungry newborn kittens for over a week. At age 14 Sweat Pea, who we thought was unable to havy puppies of her own, suprised us with a liter of one puppy. Just one, that we named Studlly, who still is with our family today. A year later we had an even bigger suprise when, at age 15, Sweat Pea, had another liter of , not one but 9 little puppies. The pregnancy did cost her here Uteris though. The litttle puppies were so small my mom took two weeks off of work to hand feed and take care of each one. All puppies survived abd were adopted out to loving homes. We kept the runt of the liter, a little girl puppie, we named Midgie. Midgie is still with our family today. Sweat Pea continued to live an active healthy life with us over the next 5 years. At age 21 things quickly went downhill for Sweat Pea. First she lost her hearing and then her sight. Finaly she lost her since of smell which cast her in a world of isolation and fear. When that happened we knew we owed it to her, for all the love and happiness she gave our family, to give her a peacefull painless way out of this world. So she could cross the rainbow bridge to the other side and be happy and young once again. We love and miss our beloved, Momma dog, Sweat Pea.
