Ch Pintado's Georgia On My Mind

September 23 1997 - July 31 2011

Today the house is a little emptier. Just 2 months shy of her 15th birthday, we had to let Peanut go. Peanut was born the smallest of a litter of 12 puppies, she was born weighing just 6 oz, and did not gain any weight for over a week. 

There were many days in the first couple weeks we did not believe she would survive. My mom spent many days wandering around the house with Peanut holding Peanut to keep her warm and keep an eye on her. But she was always a fighter and continued to stay strong and flourish. We decided that Peanut should stay here with us and he became momís devoted dog.


In the show ring, Peanut finished her Ch with style, never placing less than reserve. But she really was momís companion and as such enjoyed going with mom everywhere she could. Peanut really enjoyed the trips to Otter Creek, NY where she could run the trails while mom rode her Paint mare, Dolly! In the past 10 years Peanut fell in love with my nephew, Brandon. She loved to follow him when he visited. When she could still go upstairs would lie outside his room at night to keep watch over him and she would chase the ball or bubbles for Brandon for hours!!


Although Peanut was never bred, she helped raise the litters here at Pintado. She loved puppies as much as she loved children, was patient and tolerant with them all! At the beginning Peanut was smaller and always just a little behind the rest of the litter, she opened her eyes about a week later, got up and around about a week later.. She did seem to catch up with the rest, but she has proved to us, she was still a little behind the rest of her littermates. The smallest of the 12, she is the last to leave us.


RIP Peanut  We miss you.

 

 

 

Peanut is my Mom's buddy.  I showed Peanut to her CKC Ch, which she finished in 7 days of showing, never placing lower than Reserve Winners.  Peanut had a rough start to life.  She was born weighing 6 oz while the others were 10-14 oz..  Peanut then stayed at 6 oz for just over 1 week, then slowly started to gain.  We gave her lots of extra care, and she still is the spoiled princess!!  Peanut has enjoyed several trips to Otter Creek, NY trail riding with my mom and her Paint mare, Dolly.
