We will miss you Peach

On December 27th we had to say good-bye to our dog Peach. She has been blind for almost a year now and she had bad arthritis in her back hips and a growth on her. She was doing OK until the 26th. When we were headed to the zoo we couldn't get her to get up and go into the garage where it was warm. Jacob tucked a blanket around her and we went to the zoo. She was up at the gate when we got home. The next day she could hardly move and she could hardly eat and was wheasing. She went down hill that day. We had a vet come to the house that night and had her put out of her misery. Not really how we wanted to spend our Christmas vacation, but she needed to be in peace. I'm sure she is running around with Bubbles now and probably getting into trouble. We will miss you Peach! You were the sweetest and most gentle dog.

We got Peach when she was 5 months old so she was pretty big. Brittney, Makenzie and Jacob went with me when we got her. We had Peach in the back of the Suburban and she jumped over the seat and it scared Jacob and Makenzie and Jacob kept saying, "Take her back, take her back". We are so glad we kept her and I know Jacob is really glad we kept her.
