In Loving Memeory!!

            Yesterday was very sad for my family!! We lost a very good friend and family member!!
                  Penny...she was my second son's dog. Nicholas had some hard times as a young boy. We had him seeing a Doctor, who suggested that we get him a dog. It was his opinion that the unconditional love would help him greatly!! Boy, was that doctor right...Penny turned our sick little boy into a very happy, playful little boy again. They were 2 peas in a pod.
                    Nicholas was nine years old when we got Penny for him. Here they are 3 years after we got her.                           
           Where ever one was the other was right there. They have always been close. It was hard on Penny and Nick when we moved. He couldn't keep her with him..so we kept her with us. But, when he came to visit...it was like they were never apart :):)
              Here they are on his last visit one month ago. Nick is now 22 years old and Penny 13yrs.
                She has been struggling for the last two months...but 2 weeks ago it became apparent that she was really hurting....after taking her in to have the Vet look at her...it was with his  advice we let her go.     With my husband at my side we did....it was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do.
She will be greatly missed!!! Thank you Penny for all the love and devotion you gave us...you were a wonderful addition to our family!!  You will always be in our hearts!!

                             Thank you for listening to my story... all your prayers and comforting words will help tremendously !!!     Please hug your fur babies for me!! They are a great addition to our human lives. It is my opinion they make us all better humans :):)
                                Hugs...Sandie

What a cutie. I hear pugs are just the most loving dogs. All the ones I've met have been. One just can't be sad around them. I glad that your son has so many happy times with her. (((hugs))) for your whole family.

It makes me cry every time I hear about a family losing a beloved pet. I know how it feels and it just plain sucks. They give so much and expect so little in return. I know it is very hard for everyone, but hopefully the knowledge that she isn't in pain any more will relieve some of your own pain. You and the rest of your family are in our prayers for a quick healing. Call me when you are up to it sweetie. Love ya.

Sandra, I am so sorry for you and your family's loss (especially Nick) of such a wonderful family member. Having lost our own dog (who was also 13) in June, I know how hard it is. Thinking of you all

So sorry to hear about Penny. I hate seeing our pets get older. Sounds like Penny was well loved and had a great life.

I know I haven't commented in a while, but know I do come by for visits. Today I saw that you lost your beloved Penny. I am so so sorry. I'm sure it has been very hard on Nicholas, but she came along when he needed her most, and she gave him unconditional love and guidance as only our fur babies can. He will have those memories for a lifetime as she will always be by his side. You, and all your family are in my thoughts. Hugs to you all---

Sweet Penny! She took her job as best friend to heart, clearly. Pets are such a great comfort. Our little Cairn Terrier is 14 1/2 now. He is still plugging along for now. Best to all of you.
