You've been by my side for 15 years. I don't really remember what life was like without you. You been with me through all my ups and downs. You were there for me during sad times and celebrating with me through joyous times. I know you were holding on as long as you could, pushing through any aches or pains in order to give us another kiss for the day. Pushing through all the bad in order to not make us sad. The house is so quiet without you here. I don't know how to feel without you near. The days are new to me and the nights seem long. Trying to adjust to this new life without you will take some time. We chose to say goodbye on Valentines because there seem no better way, to remind us always how much love you brought us every single day. I miss you Peanut, and thank you for making everyone you met smile and making life better these past 15 years. Daddy and I couldn't be more thankful to have had you in our lives. We will miss you and love you forever.


Our Story:
2006, I had recently moved into my own place, it was the first time I didn't have roommates and my apartment seemed quiet. Although I was happy I felt I was missing something. I decided maybe I should get a dog. Really wasn't sure what I was looking for but I realized once I saw you. You were so little and when the lady handed you over to me to meet you, I knew you were ready to come home. I never decided on something so quick in my life. Unfortunately there was 1 hold on you, I had to wait. After leaving the Humane Society I felt so sad that I could not bring you with me. I thought I would not be able to adopt you because another family saw you first. I prayed about it and let God know my heart was sad. Within an hour I received a phone call from the Humane Society and they let me know the family that had the hold on you let it go and you were free to come home to me the same day. I could not have been more happy, I turned around and called my best friend Sonso and we went to pick you up. You were loved ever since. In my apartment you were tearing up the place because you were a ball of energy, from there I decided it seemed like a good idea to buy a house for you. lol and that I did, where me and you lived for many years. So many friends, human and dogs, came through our lives but it was me and you always side by side. Until daddy came into our lives. Mommy met daddy and fell in love, but even faster than we fell for each other, daddy fell for you. You stole your daddy's heart from the second he met you. There was only one problem, he had two cats that you would have to deal with. Even when you tried to scare them, they did not budge, so you came to accept them and we became a little family. Me, Daddy, Chloe, Abby and you.

Personal Notes

Peanut your boisterous spirit will always be with us. I will always remember the comical times we had when I took care of you when your mommy was on deployment. You certainly put a smile on my face and your cousin Ruski dog loves you so much. You will always be in our hearts. Rest in peace lovely furbaby.
