Until We Meet Again, Dear Friend... - Jessie T. Wolf
Until We Meet Again, Dear Friend...|
I feel your pain Jessie. I once had a guinea pig that I love so much and she was dear to not just me but the whole family. She had a lot of personality for a rodent and I remember all the good times I had with her. I still blame myself because I took her cage outside one day and let her get some fresh air with ice cold water and shade for the first time in a long while. I came back a short while and she was dead. I had her since grade school to my senior year in high school. I cried so much that following evening.
Why I blame myself is because I found out guinea pigs get heat stroke easily so it must've been my taking her out that did her in despite my attempts to keep her cool. But we did have her for years so it must have been old age. I dunno...
Well, just know that as someone who also lost a pet I send my best wishes to you and Barkley. May both our pets RIP.

It's never good to blame yourself. Sometimes these things just happen, but at least our animal friends know that we love them, and they are family (even if they are small pets - I had rats for years as well, but I still loved them like I love my dogs).
