Peanut The Corgi

Why yes, you ARE about to become bombarded with everything that is me! My human has a strange obsession with taking my picture and squeeling every time I so much as look at her so you get to share my pain. Have fun! And remember, if you feel like sharing anything, anything at all (and by anything, I mean food) feel free! My human is more than happy to share your Corgi pictures, videos, and blogs with my followers =)

This is proof that my human can’t figure out her camera on her phone.

Regardless, I still love her.

Thank you everyone for all you have done to help me out. Please, if you haven’t shared my fund link, please do!

This is my ‘this food is disgusting and I want my old food back’ look. But apparently I can’t have my old food anymore. Lame.

Thank you everyone for spreading the word about Peanut’s fundraising! We’ve raised a bit more money thanks to lovely followers :)

For those who have mentioned looking at different aid organizations, I’ve looked into several and Peanut does not qualify due to her condition being terminal and/or her not being a rescue dog. But thank you very much for your help!

I’m so sorry that I disappeared. Between the new baby, moving, and new jobs and such, I’ve had minimal to no time to be on here except to quickly browse in my downtime.

Things have been pretty good in regards to most aspects of our life.

Everything except for Peanut, who this tumblr was created for.

A few weeks ago, we took Peanut to the emergency vet for what appeared to be an abscess caused by a tooth. The vet determined that we would need to extract the tooth so we scheduled an appointment with our new vet. I opted out of the blood-screen work because she was so young and they doubted they’d find anything wrong. Well, the vet decided later that they would do it since she was a new patient, just to be sure.

The news wasn’t good and I got a call shortly after they received the results.

Peanut is in kidney failure. She’s not even 3 and she’s in kidney failure. They suspected, due to her age and lack of behavioral changes, that it was a congenital issue. Regardless, they didn’t expect that she has more than a couple years (assuming that she is only fed a prescription diet for kidney failure) max.

I opted out of the tooth extraction and instead used the vet’s referral to go to another clinic to get ultrasounds done. Her right kidney is no longer functioning and has shrunk to the size of an almond. Her left kidney is only twice that size and has only 30% function left. There is no way to determine how long it will last her. However, they did rule out that it was a congenital issue because the kidneys were not misshapen and they had a lot of scar tissue. They agreed that she’s been suffering with this for a very long time, probably most of her life and that the damage was done probably by something she ingested.

With a baby, only one job (job searching for myself isn’t working too well),

student loans and other obligations, we are doing everything we can to extend Peanut’s life and keep her comfortable. A wonderful friend referred us to a non-profit organization that helps raise funds for dogs in need of medical care whose owners can’t afford it.

We have been so blessed that people have responded but we haven’t reached our limit yet so I thought I’d ask here, to my Corgi Nation, if you are able to help us in any way.

Any donations made are tax deductible and go straight to the vet clinic.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. It is a bit long…

Tribute to one of the greatest movies of all time.

By far one of the most under appreciated movies ever.

The owner started these sites a few years ago but with horses. She’s just added this game to her bunch and so far it is significantly more challenging!

Love :) Please take a peek and maybe join??

The police just came to my door and gave me the worst news of my life. My baby was euthanized today. They told me they had no information on the person who was “bitten”. All they acted on was a picture sent to them. My baby is gone because someone didn’t like us having him.
We won’t be on tumblr, possibly ever again.

This is heartbreaking and I encourage Vader’s owners to seek legal action when they are ready.

I normally don’t post about stuff like this in tumblr but this is a true injustice, not to mention incredibly illegal.

It’s after hours for this particular state’s animal and health department, but I encourage all of you to take a moment and call these numbers and express how wrong this is.

(701) 328-2655
(701) 220 5194
(701) 220 0092 
(701) 202 6251 

Please be polite; the person on the other end of the line, odds are, is not the one who made the decision. They are representatives and they should be regarded with respect.

//Signal boosting.  I feel so horrible for Vader’s owners.  I agree with Autobot-lolo, be polite.  Don’t scream and curse and be belligerent.  Be firm, polite, and insistent, and ask for facts and citations (was there a police report?  Can a copy be purchased?). 

Don’t allow this go to unremarked.  This could be anyone’s pet, be it a fox, a German Shepherd, Doberman, or Pit Bull, or even a housecat or horse.  The police took Vader on the 20th, and he was euthanized on the 21st.  That’s very, very quick turnaround time, especially for a government agency.  I find it very worrisome, and that it sets a dangerous precedence.  Contacting the agencies will not bring Vader back, of course, but if all of us here on Tumblr can keep it from happening to someone else, I think that’s worthwhile.

This is so wrong. I am so sorry Tara I can’t even imagine the pain and grief you are going through. This just makes me feel so numb. This poor baby was ripped from his home and unfairly given a death sentence before he even has a chance to be defended. I hope legal action is taken and that whoever made this false report enjoys a special place in hell waiting for them.

Only reblogging this one because it has information that I find necessary to be reblogged. 

I feel that this is like executing someone for a crime without an investigation. 

I want to encourage Tara to prosecute this because according to the police report, he was allowed in her town, and then was told later that he was not.

I call bullshit on this situation. I am shocked this happened. I hate it
