Our thoughts go to the Carroll family on the death of Colt, their 9 year old Puggle. Colt arrived on a warm Friday afternoon. The date July 5, 2013. He was 2 years old and was rescued from a bad situation. Little did we know, at the time, just how much love this little man would give us. We took him into the back yard where he immediately, fully inspected every square inch, and then he was introduced to his new big sister Chanel. Chanel didn’t seem to be too impressed initially, but Colt’s personality grew on her pretty quickly. They soon became best friends, actually inseparable. When he first arrived, we were told what his name was, but he would not respond to it at all. We just called him Little Buddy for a few days until we got to know him better. We decided to rename him Colt, because he was certainly a straight shooter, told it like he saw it. Colt had some trouble at first with his supper dish and toys, he apparently never had either. It only took about 2 meals before the dish issue was over, it was now his favorite thing. The toy issue took a few days, but when he learned how to play that was his second favorite pastime. Over his lifetime he accumulated over 100 toys. He taught his sister Chanel and cousin Zoey how to open gift bags. Any occasion that included gifts always included them, and it was quite a site to see! Colt was one of the best security guards you could ever have. He would always let you know if someone had come; he would always check everyone out as soon as they arrived, and he liked everybody. Colt traveled with us everywhere. He really liked going to visit his cousin Zoey at Steve and Deborah’s house. They would play in the yard and in the house until they were too tired to move. We would all go to Ocean City, MD. There he liked to go on walks, hang out on the balcony, and go out on the boat. He was the First Mate. When the boat was underway, he insisted on riding in the passenger seat. When we would fish or float around he liked the back seat, that way he could keep an eye on everyone. Colt’s big sister Chanel passed on January 2, this year, he was heartbroken with us. Not long after that, the Covid 19 quarantine came, and his Mom was now home with him 24/7. They became very close during this time. It helped them both cope with Chanel’s passing. He was a therapist for us all during this difficult time. He could make us smile when we were sad, and we in turn would lift his spirits when he was sad. We know now why God had sent him to us, he was in need of a home, and we were in need of an angel. His passing is devastating to us all, to say the least. He was my best buddy. I was holding him in my lap on the way to the emergency room when he passed. I hugged him and gave him a kiss goodbye. It was the hardest thing that I’ve ever had to do. I, and the whole family, loved him so much. We are only comforted by the fact that one day Jesus will come and guide us across that same rainbow bridge where we will all be together again.
