    My Ymir

    Ymir had to be euthanized today. She had lots of fluid in her lungs and medication wasn't helping. X-rays had some sort of mass near her stomach, and the vet told me that if medication hadn't helped, she wasn't likely to have quality of life again.

    I'm in shock. She was only 2 years old and this all started yesterday morning. I will write up a proper memorial later.

    I am so sorry. It's bad enough when they're elderly and you can see the train wreck coming, but it's much much harder when a young, seemingly healthy piggy has to be euthanized.

    I'm so, so sorry. I can't even imagine. My heart goes out to you, and mine and my herds thoughts are with you.

    Rest in peace, little Ymir. Gone way, way too soon little one.

    Re: My Ymir

    Thank you both. This absolutely blindsided me. She was absolutely fine until suddenly she wasn't.

    She didn't take long to win me over. Once she got home, the first thing she did was jump up onto her house. She'd hang out up there a lot, eating hay out of Simon's reach. And she was always the designated wheeker. I couldn't open the fridge without hearing it from her. I had her for about a year and a half but it felt like we had known each other much longer. She liked to lick my fingers when I was holding her outside the cage.

    Here's a few pictures from happier times.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. It's an awful tragedy to lose them unexpectedly at an early age. She was so beautiful.
