Sad news from old friends.

Posted in Memorials at 8:26 am by Jenn

We’ve received some very sad updates from old friends in the past week.

Mia HammWe first heard from Michael and Carrie last week, letting us know that our beloved Mia Hamm had passed away.  A couple of months ago, Mia began bleeding from beneath her tail, and after multiple rounds of antibiotics, and an x-ray was done that revealed a serious tumor.  She passed her final days surrounded by her family and in comfort.  Hers was a happy tail from beginning to end — she found her family and lived a full and cherished life with them.

We then heard a followup from Twoflower the guinea pig. Twoflower He as adopted by Chris to be friends with his strong-willed ladypig Stealth.  They lived together in harmony and happiness for many months.  Unfortunately, early last week Twoflower passed in the wee hours of the morning as his heroic dad tried valiantly to get him into the emergency vet.

While we are always saddened to hear that our friends have gone over to the bridge, we are always heartened to know what good little lives our friends have had, and how dearly bought having a happy ending is.  Thank you again, to our wonderful adopters, who give so much to these little guys.

    It is always sad to learn of the passing or our little friends. Sympathy to the families who loved Mia and Twoflower, with special thoughts for Lady Stealth on the loss of her beloved companion.
