Farewell, Peaches

I tried to do this last night, but Blogger was offline. Peaches was a small poodle who loved cats and adored her humans. She lived with Loa's family for 16 years. She didn't get much coverage in the blog, but what pictures there are of her mostly show her napping with the cats. I imagine that she is delighted to find so many cats at the Rainbow Bridge and is probably in the middle of the biggest nap pile ever right now.

                                   The time came when Peaches got old and tired.
                                   Because she was so loved and admired,
                                                  Her folks helped her go
                                                  To the Bridge, although
                                    That was the very last thing they desired.

Even when we already know of a loss, we learn something new about them in your post.

Good-bye Peaches.

Peaches sure did have a doll face. I love your blog. Every time I read your limericks I feel so happy/sad at the same time.
Thank you, Karen!

What a sweet post for a sweet doggy. I too hope that Loa and family will heal soon. It's so hard when Peaches is the second one to pass in their family in such a short time. TT was a sweet kitty.

What a dear little face that dog has. Oh dear, another family in mourning for a beloved family member. It happens so often and is devastating at the time.

Everyone has a story and you are a great story teller Karen Jo. Thank you for sharing and blessings forever to those sweet furbabies.
I hope all is well with you. I think you would be a great fur baby mom. I wish you didn't have allergies. :(
My kitties send you head buts and purrs!
Hugs,
Lorianna
