“In Loving Memory...”

Description from Luv2bead - Little Chick: My guinea pig, Gypsy, died this morning. She was only 3 years old. I can't believe she's gone...for some reason I never thought this day would least SO soon! She seemed so young. Last night I noticed she wasn't looking too well. I held her for a few hours (until midnight). This morning I woke up around 8:20am. She was alive but she was all limp and didn't look comfortable. I held her until she died (in my arms) around 8:55am. I'm so sad! She was the PERFECT guinea pig!

    Oh Nicole, I am so sorry. Loosing Gypsy so soon has to be so hard. My heart breaks for you and I wish I could make the pain go away. I hope you will soon remember only the good times with her.
    Take care Little Chick. Hugs and more hugs.

    Thanks Chicky LE!! It kinda took me off guard…though I regret nothing since I held her until the end. When Poco died a few years ago, I left his side for 15 minutes (to eat breakfast…how dumb of me)…when I came back, he was gone. I’ve regretted that and wished I could re-live it…I’m glad that didn’t happen with Gypsy!

    Thanks Mary & Sheltie Mom! LOL guinea pigs sure do squeak when they hear the fridge opening! ;) I tried to feed her a carrot and hay (her two favorite things) last night, but she wouldn’t eat them.

    I’m sure it was a great comfort to Gypsy (and you) that you were there with her when she passed. When our toy poodle Angel passed 6 years ago, I held her and am so happy I was with her, even though it was the saddest of times for me.
