A Tribute to Sweet Peachy


Our sweet Peachy (left) passed away very suddenly last night after fighting a brain tumor for about a year and a half.  She was only with us for a short time – she was an older dog when we adopted her – but she was a truly a part of our family and we loved her.  Sweet Peach, a.k.a. Peachy The Moose, was affectionate, gentle, and full of joy. She loved her new “sisters”, loved to play and snuggle, and especially loved to go for walks. Whenever we would get leashes out, she would do the Peachy-dance: race to the door, spin in circles, run to the other side of the room, spin in circles some more, repeating with a great big smile on her face until we had all three dogs harnessed and were out on our walk. We are happy to have had her in our lives and shall miss her.

  1. Spinning around must be an energetic dogs trait. Our lab-border collie mix does the same. Of course, she is large enough to send everything around her spinning too. You will will the clicking to toe nails in anticipating of walks.

    • Thank you for your note, Oscar. Peachy might have been an energetic dog when she was young, but we think that she was around 9 years old or so when we got her and she was pretty darned mellow by then. But I have never seen a dog get so excited to go for a walk.

      I hope that you and your family had a lovely Thanksgiving.


  2. Laurie, I am so sorry to hear of your loss of Sweet Peach. She was a very lucky girl to have been able to live out her remaining years with a family full of love.
    Brightest Blessings,
    Bill and Otis

    • Dear Bill and Otis, Thank you for your note about Peachy. We miss our sweet girl, but are thankful for the time that we had with her. We hope that you are both well. Laurie & the girls

  3. How beautiful that you adopted an older dog and gave her wonderful, love-filled years. I always love your photos of your dogs as they are so cute and I am such a big dog person myself (always having my own dog sleeping at my feet as I type away). All the best to you all.

    • Hi, Letizia,

      I apologize for taking so long to reply to your note. I appreciated hearing from you. We miss our sweet Peachy, but are thankful for the time that we had with her. We think that she was about 10 when she came to us. I hope that you and your family are well and that you are able to enjoy the holidays!


  4. Laurie and Bill, Very sorry about your loss! Peachy was very lucky to be part of your Family even though it was a short time! Vince

  5. No one could have loved her more or been a better than than you & Bill. You’ve extended your appreciation of Boston Terriers to me. May she rest in peace and sweet memories to you always.

    • Hi, Ann.

      I’ve been behind in my blog emails and I just noticed that I never answered your kind note about Peachy. It was very sweet of you to write and we appreciate your thoughts!


  6. No matter the length of time they are with us — they become an integral part of our lives … providing lessons for us to learn, and unconditional love to give. May her spirit run free like the wind. Holding her in Divine Light ~ as well as you and your family ~~
