And that pretty well sums up the first few months of Peanut and her furever parent on the streets of Gila Bend.
Peanut is a rescue from the streets of Gila Bend when her future furever parent saw her running down the street late at night chasing a car she had jumped out of. Her future parent thought she would execute an easy rescue but was soon foiled. As soon as her future parent could get near the puppy, she took off dashing in front of semi’s and heading toward a speeding train. Luckily she didn’t run on the tracks but was hiding. Her parent couldn’t locate her so decided to walk to the nearest gas station and inquire about the little stray dog. As the months went by, she would travel to Gila Bend weekly to inquire about the puppy and buy cans of food to leave out for her as she was mostly a Chihuahua and terrier mix and couldn’t quite pull trash from the tall trash cans. And then one time while at the gas station as she was headed back to her car and she spotted the puppy near the palo verde tree and with outstretched arms she was able to pull the scared little puppy up and at that point, Peanut got her name and a very happy parent. It’s worked out because Peanut has been a faithful traveling companion for 10 years now. As gas stations go, I suspect she likes the Why Not Travel Store better as well!! Much more to do here and no speeding trains.
