    My will

    I did not write this. I only adapted it to suit the forum. Emotionally, I had a hard time doing it but I thought I would post it for others because it seems so pertinent for us. I can't seem to figure out how to post it larger. I posted it here because it seemed the most obvious place, but if I'm wrong please feel free to move it to wherever it's appropriate.

    It's beautiful. Thank you, @Guinea Pig Papa, for sharing this. It almost made me cry but it also brought a smile to my face. I think this will help many people who have lost their beloved guinea pigs. It certainly has helped me with my own grief.

    @CavyTV that was my hope. Poopy looking up like that just seemed to be the perfect photo to use, and hopefully it does help others.

    I didn't realize that was your piggie Pooper... I'm so sorry that you lost him. He was a very handsome little boy

    @CavyTV Yep, that was my best friend. I used his pic because, well, using someone else's piggy just felt kind of like stealing to me. Using the same script but just changing a couple of words kind of felt like stealing too, but the message was more important. I'm not interested in any credit for it whatsoever. And just having that pic of him looking up, seemed like a good fit for what I wanted to do. Years from now no one will know whose piggy that was or what his name was, but hopefully that message sticks with them.

    Thank you, @Artista. Never seen a pig that wasn't adorable and precious and beautiful.

    Me neither. All animals are adorable and precious, and as pets, rely on us for their livelihood.

    I am a sensitive person and I started reading it thinking I was going to cry, and I did. It was really touching and beautiful.

    Re: My will

    As I said, I didn't write it and not looking for any credit. I read it elsewhere and it was written, I'm sure, for cats and dogs. But it had meaning for me, and I thought that if I redid it for those of us that are cavy crazy, it could have some meaning for them, too.

    New piggies will never, ever replace those lost.

    There will never be another Pooper, Mooshy, Chester, Bramley, Crumbs, or Inga, or Luigi. Ever. But those new bundles of fur help us to heal, and we help THEM by giving them the best life we possibly can. They aren't replacements. They're new beginnings.
