The Chewing Machine named Beau
He’s not this small anymore… he’s probably a 40 lb dog.
My puppy, Beau, is now entirely too big to sleep in bed with me. He likes to lay on my legs and he’s just too heavy. I am not a big believer in buying a dog a bed. BUT, I did. I can NOT believe what I paid for it either! It’s even orthopedic…. shows a drawing of a dog laying on his bed with a straight back bone. I also bought him a kong and filled it with peanut butter. I’d just about do anything at this point to keep my shoes and other necessities of life safe from this chewing machine. He was excited about the kong for about 5 seconds. It’s out in the backyard just laying there…. he is taking his afternoon siesta….on the floor, right next to his new bed. The kitten says that SHE will use his nice expensive bed. You know it seems to me, that puppies, kitties, and kids all teach you the same things…. firstly, PATIENCE. secondly, PATIENCE and thirdly, PA….. ya…. lol

Another goal of this website is to disseminate a message (i.e. education) about domestic violence, child abuse, and all forms of sexual abuse to society at large. The message comes from real experience from the whole spectrum of the violence from sexual abuse by a perpetrator to sexual abuse perpetrated by a husband, to the abuse of children within the family. Peggy has seen it, lived it, and been hurt by it. There will on occasion be details that might be hard for some people to read, and a warning is usually posted at the beginning of the essay so that those who want to turn and not read may do so. The only way to teach and to let others learn what to avoid is to SHARE what happened with every detail necessary to make the point. Thank you.
