LIfe, it ends so we can learn to live. . .

It is with a VERY sad heart that I am passing along that our most beloved, and outgoing and adventurous cavy (guinea pig), Snuggles, had what appears to be a stroke, last night.  

She passed this morning on the way to the vet, in my wife, Ellen's arms.

She was unlike ANY piggie we've ever taken care of,  BLUE eyes (rather then the normal ruby red) and a personality that could win over the grouchiest person. Friendly, outgoing, and curiuos, she will always be remembered.  She was a bit over 5 years old and so was very old, but was very active for one so old also.

We are very glad she did not suffer long howevver.

Thank you. I will miss her a lot, my it has hit my wife the hardest.
Mike, she wasn't just a pet, she was a member of your family, your home will naturally feel quite lonely. I'm sorry for your loss. We've had two rescued golden retreivers over the years, and saying good bye was gut wrentching, eventually the hurt lessened. For us prayer helped, but I know that's not something all people would not chose. My prayers however, will be with you. {{{Lyn}}}

Thank you, if we can concentrate on all the times we had with her, which were all good times, it helps too. The loss is great, but time together were beyond belief. :-)
