November 14 1995 - March 11 2009

In loving memory of our Pierre who we love so much. Pierre will be greatly missed and be in our hearts forever.  I watched Pierre being born on November 14, 1995, at that time I didn't even know he was gonna be mine!!  My husband  surprised me with him when he was five week's old just before Christmas.

This dog is very deeply Loved by my Husband and I and our two children. We were Mommy and Daddy and my children were his brother and sister, he was treated like our third child!!

On March10,2009 my Husband woke up and seen there was something wrong with our poodle. He took him to the dining room where they always sat together then he came in and woke me up and told me there is something wrong with Pierre. I got up and seen how bad he was, and I just lost it, I knew this day would be coming at some point but I sure wasn't ready for it. It was 7:30 am and I called the vet to get him in, they said 8:20 we were there before 8:00 am. As soon as the Dr. came in, he looked at Pierre and said," He's had a CVA (cerebrovascular accident). They done some blood work and he was dehrydrated and a few other thing's. He said I'm gonna keep him for 24 hrs and he should be better. I thought cool, nothing major. I can handle this, well thats what I thought! The nurse told me to call her in the afternoon to check on him, as patient as a am, NOT I caouldn't wait till the afternoon so I called about 11:00 am to check on him and she said there has been no change, got off the phone and lost it again. By now my nerves were absolutly SHOT!  I called her back at 4:00 pm she said he was actually doing a little better, and I asked her if there were people there all night and she said no, I had such a hard time knowing that he would be alone all night but there wasn't anything I could do about it. She told me she leaves at 6:00 pm, a few minutes before 6:00pm she called me and said he took a turn for the worst. Great that's the news I really wanted to hear. Had the whole night to deal with that. Sleep? Me? Not that night at all!  I called at 9:00 the next morning and the lady said the Dr. will call you between patients. Wait, wait it seemed like it took for ever for him, to call me!! I'm sure it really wasn't that long, just felt like it!!!! He told me he had hoped Pierre would be doing much better today, but he has made no progress, he said I want you to come see him, and then we will go from there. My husband and I went down to see him at 3:00pm. The hardest day I have ever, ever had in my entire life!!! My husband and I both held him then I put him back in his cage. I had to take my husband to the car, because he as just taking it so bad. I sat out in the car for awhile with him. I just could not quit crying but I knew what had to be done a I wasn't gonna let my prescious little angel go throught this alone.I went back in there and told them I wanted to do it. They brought him to me wrapped up in a blanket and put us in a room all by ourselves and dimmed the lights. I sat and rocked my little angle knowing want I had to do. I talked to him, and rubbed his little head,  I asked the Lord to help me be strong, and he did. My daughther came in about twenty five minutes later with my  Aunt, and they both held him for a few minutes then I took him back when the DR. came in. I lost it I just totally lost it, he gave him the shot and it only took maybe a second or two and he was gone. Oh my God my heart hurt SO So very much!!!!


Me and my Family

                  He Only Takes The Best

 A heart of gold stopped beating,

two shining eyes at rest,

God broke our hearts to prove,

he only takes the best.

 God knows you had to leave us,

but you did not go alone,

for part os us went with you,

the day he took you home.

 To some you are forgotten,

to others just a part of the past,

but to us who loved and lost you,

the memory will always last.







Momma was being silly and put me in a walker

Hello baby boy this is Momma, I'm sorry I haven't been on in awhile, cause it's hard to type through all the tears.I hope all is well with you, I know you can see again and your running around in Heaven with all the other doggies.

Mom got you back on the 16th of March thats the next to the hardest thing I have ever done, putting you down was the hardest thing I've ever done. Your stting on the self of my China Cabinet that's in the dining room for now, but I plan on making you a Memorial Wall soon!!

I think Bailey (our cat) even realizes your no longer with us. We called you our French Fry freak, because you loved them so much! You know Daddy won't eat them at all any more, Momma eats them in your Honor!! We miss you so much baby boy, it still really hurts, it's not getting any easier yet.




My Precious Boy!

                     IF IT SHOULD BE


    If it should be that I grow weak and pain should keep me from my sleep

then you must do what must be done, for this last battle cannot be won.

   You'll be sad I understand, don't let your grief then stay your hand.

For this day, more than all the rest, your Love for me must stand the test.

  We've had so many happy years, what is to come can hold no fears. You'd not want to suffer so; the time has come- please let me go.

  Take me where my need they'll tend, and please stay with me till the end. Hold me firm and speak to me, until my eyes no longer see.

   I know in time that you will see, the kindness that you did for me.

Although my tail its last has waved, from pain and suffering I've been saved.

  Please do not grieve-it must be who had this painful thing to do.

We've been so close, we two, these years; Don't let your heart hold back tears
