Ch Pintado's Georgia On My Mind
ex Ch Ebbtide I Showed Up In Boots
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.
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.
