RIP Pete Penrod 1998-2009


A picture I took on New Years Eve....


Today is a VERY sad day for the family. My mom's poodle Pete has been sick most of his life and passed away this morning. He started having MAJOR problems about two months ago and could no longer walk. They didn't know if it was an infection or a nerve problem. With out thousands of dollars in test they might know, but mom didn't want to go that route. He lived a full life and it was just his time. She tried to keep him comfortable till then. We went over to her house for dinner last night and he just looked horrible. Mom knew that is was just a matter of time. This morning she called and said he looked worse, she made up her mind to just go somewhere and put him to sleep. She called me to see if I would go with her, so I got dressed and headed over to her house. As I walked in the door she said to Pete, we are gonna go bye bye in just a few minutes. Mom and I stopped to talk for about 3-4 minutes and I said, I better go say Hi to Pete or I'm gonna be in trouble. As I was walking he didn't look good. I stop and kept looking at him and he was not breathing. I knelled down in front of him and felt his side and sure enough...nothing. I called out to mom that he is not breathing and she came over and felt his chest and nothing. We knew he was gone. Mom called a few pet places to find out what she can do with him and most places were closed for the day. We called the Vet Hospital up the street and they take them for a local business and you can drop them off for $51 or you can cremate them and get a temporary urn for $116. We drove him up and mom is gonna have him cremated and bury his ashes this spring when the ground defrost. So needless to say she is VERY upset and trying to take her mind off of everything. It will take time but I told the boys over breakfast with Mom and they were sad, but understood it was meant to be. Now the tough part is telling Caleb Monday.Pete or as I call him Re Pete will be dearly missed and loved......
