Sad mommy plants a tree

Did you watch the Kentucky Derby?

Mommy and Daddy stayed outside doing things with us (way fun) until it was time fur the Derby to start. When she walked in the room she expressed "Oh what a beeuutiful horse!" me Crikit felt so happy cos she always calls me her little horse unless she's mad then I'm a bull sheesh then I realized it wasn't me she was talking about cos she said to daddy "oh he's gonna win what's his name?" Daddy said "Big Brown and he probably won't cos he's been running a lot of races recently". "No matter" momma said "I have no doubt he is gonna make history today!"
She then hears about a filly running named Eight Belles' and that a filly has never won before. When Eight Belles' went by the camera my mom said "oh she's beeuutiful and she just might win this if BB doesn't and I know she'll place if not win" daddy had his own idea's so he stayed quite.
The race began and mom was almost kissing the TV and screaming at it... weird we thought the TV was in trouble? Anyway we thought something was wrong but she was on the carpet and we couldn't go comfort her. Daddy tried to calm us but before you knew it she was so happy and apawlogizing to us fur her behavior. Then, something happened cos she began sobbing and we didn't like it. When she kindda stopped she came and gave us big oh long hugs and she let us lick her lots then she disappeared.
When mommy came outside later she dug a whole. She told us she was gonna plant a tree to give us shade all day and it's name would be Eight Belles'. We will furever honor the beeuutiful filly who gave her all to her owners' and took second in the Kentucky Derby before her life ended tragically. She had to be euthanized immediately. God's Garden has another beeuutiful horsey.


Me Crikit paying my respects to Eight Belles' our new tree and when our Eight Belles' is strong enough, we're gonna hang eight bells on her Y
