In Memoriam

This post is dedicated to the memory of Rocky and Scruffy. Beloved family pets.

Within hours of each other, our much loved Gerbil and Hampster passed on to the great squeeky running wheel in the sky. I can see fluffy white scruffy now, running around Hampster Heaven with a jowl full of seeds and anything else he can sniff out. Little brown Rocky, his partner in crime, lurking in the dark shadows of the heavenly throne, keeping his eyes open and his nose twitching for anything interesting that might pass by.

May the sunflower seeds be plentiful there, the bedding be cleaned often, and the water tube never run dry.

Blessed Be

Oh, I'm sorry. We had our first pet death this last week and it's so hard! Hugs.

My condolences Betty. I love rodentia too, but they don't live long. They endear themselves to you, and then break your heart when they go.

Rinda, sorry to hear about your loss as well. It's always sad to see a loved one go, even if he or she walks on four legs.

I'm still grieving over a pet death from 2003.

Your eulogy is fitting and sweet. :)

Hugs to you and Rinda.

My sister lost one of her dogs last week. They held a memorial service for her on Sunday. I assured her that anyone who didn't understand her grief had never lost an animal that had really touched them.

The only time I remember seeing Mike cry at a t.v. show was a re-run of Andy Griffith, but the day we had to put our pet to sleep he cried like a baby. To this day we talk about Mittens with tears in our eyes. It was twenty years ago.
