Sweetpea, the smallest puppy to ever grace the Puppy Bowl, captured the hearts of viewers worldwide. Weighing just 1.7 pounds during Puppy Bowl 2024, which aired on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 11, her miniature size belied her enormous impact.

However, Sweetpea's journey was bittersweet. Born on July 1, 2023, in Tennessee and raised at Bosley’s Place rescue in Georgia, she battled a kidney illness from a tender age. Despite her challenges, she radiated love and joy, endearing herself to everyone around her.

Tragically, Sweetpea's life was cut short on Nov. 20, 2023, succumbing to her illness at just 5 months old. Her passing left a void in the hearts of those who knew her, but her memory lives on as a testament to resilience and the power of love.
