This Is So Sad

Recommended Posts

One of my guinea pigs died this morning. Maeve. We got her from the humane society a year ago to keep our other guinea pig (Boudika) company. Maeve had sight problems, seemed to be kinda old, reeeeally cuddley. We spoiled her rotten, she was fine yesterday..... These things happen (I grew up on a farm, I've been thru this b4) but it just really sucks. We got our girls when I was going thru a terribly hard time, needed company and companionship. They very much give that to me. Now Boudika is all alone, I think we'l get another one later to keep her company. I miss her....

This day sux

I'm so sorry. :(

It's always hard when we lose part of our furry family.

How's Boudika doing?

I had a cat get out once and never saw her again. My other cat went through a little down time before she bounced back.

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

Hi Adelle,

I'm so sorry to hear about Maeve :( It's so hard to lose a pet--they become a part of the family.

Adelle, I am sorry for your loss. Yes it is hard to loose a pet, they are members of the family. They are a great comfort when we are feeling down.

I will be devastated when my geriatric cat decides to go.

But poor you, it was quite unexpected for your Maeve to go.

My thoughts are with you and little Boudika.

Hugs.

Catherine

It's always hard when we lose one of our little furry friends... Or our feathered friends or our friends with fins and scales or flippers! LOL... sorry. I went off there, I was just thinking about when my daughter's goldfish dies we will all be really upset... (Trust me, the silly fish is 5 years old and is over a foot long)...

I've recently lost several of my kitty babies and I'm still missing them, but we have a new addition to the family (another stinky boy kitty named Gizmo whos really sweet and cute)... but boy he stinks...

Thanx for all of your support! Boudika is making the "I'm a lonley piggie" sound a lot. It's breaking my heart! We're gonna get another baby to keep her company soon. They were in separate cages (cause maeve was kinda aggro w other piggies due to the blindness and abuse by others) but they could see/hear eachother (they were good friends as long as there was a fence between them). Boudika keeps looking for her.

We'll just have to keep an eye out at the humane society, they r so social, I hate her being lonley!

Again, thanx for the support. U guys rock.

Dear Adelle,

From one animal lover to another, I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. Growing up in a house that always had it's share of animals we had a saying when one passed: "It never gets easier..."

Have you ever read the Rainbow Bridge poem? I love it, and even though it always makes me cry, it's beautiful and very comforting:

Ditto on the Rainbow Bridge poem! So, so sorry for your loss. We just lost our 12 year old dog and it was a very sad day for us and the kids. I found a bunch of poems and funny stories on the internet that we shared with the kids to put a smile back on their face. I was reading all the dog ones, but I'm sure there are plenty out there for all pets. There were some really cute stories that not only made us smile by bringing back wonderful memories, but also got a few laughs at a very difficult time. My favorite was the one about how to train a puppy. It said you roll up a newspaper, tie it with a rubberband and leave it on the table. When your puppy chews up something or does something naughty, pick up the newspaper and hit yourself on the head with it, repeating over and over, "I should've been watching my puppy. I should've been watching my puppy."

Hugs to all of you and remember all the funny, quirky, and cute things she did. :)
