Peanut Fletcher Aka Kiss-kiss Girl
11/5/2006 - 2/26/2021How can losing a 19 lb little fur animal hurt so much? My heart literally feels like it’s been ripped out of my chest. You never really know how hard it is to lose something until it’s gone. This past week has been such a roller coaster of emotions. Peanut, our beagle collapsed on Monday evening. We rushed her to the animal hospital at which point we were told that she had a tumor that bursts and bled into her abdomen. They said their were multiple tumors in her liver and that anyone of them could burst at anytime and that she may not make it through the night. She was like a ticking time bomb. We were so thankful that she made it through the night and we were able to take her home the next day to spend time giving her lots of cookies and love before having to say goodbye. Her poor stomach and liver was severely enlarged and of course we didn’t want her to go through that trauma again. This morning when she got up and she turned her nose up at her favorite thing in the world; cookies, we knew that it was time for the inevitable. Today at 3:15, we helped our sweet Peanut cross the rainbow bridge. We have done this with 3 other dogs and 1 cat and it never gets easier. I actually feel like it’s one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. I think it gets harder the older we get. Anyways, as I sit here at the end of this emotional week, I want to remember the things she did that made us love her so much and that we will never forget.

Peanut, you were such a great dog!
We will miss your greeting us with your happy smile and wagging tail.
We will miss your tapping on the door a hundred times a night just so you could go out, turn around to get a cookie.
We will miss you flipping your dog dish and pushing it out to the kitchen when you were hungry.
We will miss you scratching at the water tank to let us know you were out of water.
We will miss you pushing your ball in the pool and whining until we played with you.
We will miss you doing your daily goofy goofy, scratching your back and flapping your ears.
We will miss you scratching at the kitchen cabinets when we left a crumb on the counter.
I will miss you laying in front of me every evening so you could see me because you lost your hearing and needed to make I was there.
We will miss all of your kisses which is why you got the nick name, kiss-kiss girl.
We will miss you jumping in bed with us at the end of the day and giving us so much love and kisses.
We will miss you and all of the unconditional love and happiness you gave us throughout your 14 1/2 years of life.

I know that Nutmeg, Cinnamon, and Harley were all there waiting at the pearly gates to welcome you! I’m am sure that they were howling away with lots of balls and cookies and ready to play.

Peanut, you were a wonderful dog and friend that we loved so much. Thank you for all of your love. We will never forget you!

Rest In Peace baby girl!

My son wrote this one right after she passed:

At 1523 hours, Peanut crossed the rainbow bridge and was welcomed by a cast of her brothers and sisters:

Cinnamon, who was not present, because she getting into trash;
Nutmeg, who was chewing her feet because she was nervous for mom;
Harley, who gave her a monkey stare and then buried his head into her with a welcoming nudge. Harley said to her that he knew where all the cookies and toy balls were while Nutmeg assured her that Mom is going to be ok and is in good hands. Cinnamon asked if she had brought snacks, and Peanut replied “no, the only thing I brought was my heart which is full of love”.
They offered her a paw and said and all she had to do was follow him. They trotted off into the sunset where they will forever watch down over us.

Rest easy, Kiss Kiss

Red
11/18/2006 - 2/26/2021Red was our angel, the best dog we could have asked for. She was there for many of the key moments in our life. I remember dancing with her when my husband and I got engaged. We opened wedding gifts with her in the living room. When we moved, she claimed a spot in the front room in front of the window so she could keep an eye on things. She spent time with me after my thyroid cancer surgery, snuggling next to me on the bed or the couch as I laid there and watched movies. She was the decision maker when it came to bringing another dog into the home - approving of our other dog Stockton after she had the chance to chase him around a field for a bit. She accompanied me to my grandparents house after my grandmother passed away, accidentally running across the pool cover and dressing up in silly bathrobes, keeping us laughing during an otherwise difficult time. She let me hug her and bury my face into her fur when I’d cry over the loss of my mom.

She welcomed visitors with a smile, sniffs and kisses. She hung out during parties, typically sitting in the middle of the crowd. She was feisty and protected me always, staying up with me late at night watching movies after my husband would go to bed. She loved us (and Stockton) deeply, and we felt it. She was the best dog, so full of personality, and she brought so much to our lives over these last 10 years.

I can’t imagine a life without her in it, and words can’t adequately express how much I will miss her. A piece of my heart will always be reserved for Red, and I look forward to the day I can love on her again.

We love you, Red. Thank you for loving us always and unconditionally. ❤

4/4/2011I remember watching you and your Daddy going out into field in front of our house in Illinois and you discovering bunnys for the first time. Oh the joy you had trying to catch them. It was beautiful watching you soar through the field. And the perplexing look on your face when ultimately the bunny would out run you. The fun you had in meeting your best friend Missy, our next door neighbors boxer. And the two of you meeting up every time one of you would be let out and one or the other would bark at the back patio door until you were reunited for another game of chase!Ronni GodareOcala, FloridaMarch 2, 2021

Chloe
9/24/2007 - 2/24/2021Chloe was my first baby. Before I got married and had children it was always just Chloe and I.

Harlow
2/22/2021One week ago today our precious Harlow left us and our hearts will never be the same. Harlow was that one in a million. She was not just a dog, she was another member of our family. She was our 5th child. She had the most purest soul of any life I’ve ever met and I’m so glad she chose us to be her forever family. We are better because of her. I will miss the way she greeted me everyday when I walked thru the door. Kevin may never be able to grill again without his faithful companion at his side rain or shine!!!!!! The love that everyone had shone her in her final days was overwhelming and humbling. So many visitors came to say goodbye. We are so incredibly blessed that because of the incredible people at Lap of Love, we were all able to be with our precious girl as she took her last breathe. Harlow fell asleep in our home feeling safe & loved. She is now pain free and will no longer suffer what Lymphoma took away from her....... until we meet again my sweet angel..... please wait for me at the Rainbow Bridge !Jennifer MillerSchaumburg, IllinoisMarch 1, 2021
