    We Miss You, Nugget

    I looked for weeks to find little texel babies. You were the last left available in your litter, just born a few days prior. I knew you were the perfect guy for our family. I picked you up a few weeks later. We drove 5 hours in a terrible, terrible storm to pick you up. Iíve never drove in such terrible weather. You were 3 weeks old on the dot, born March 24th. We decided, on the way home, you were Nugget.

    You were the happiest, most wonderful guinea pig Iíve ever met. Even when your brothers fought and squabbled, I would hear your out-of-place happy chirps above it all. You were never nasty a day in your life. Your personality was so full of life, you were the biggest lover. I donít want to say I had a favorite, but I chose you to get tattooed on me.

    2 weeks ago, you started to sick. You were on four different medications, but nothing worked. Putting you down was the hardest decision Iíve ever had to make, but you werenít yourself anymore. There was nothing you or I or anyone could do to help you anymore. You were just 10 days shy of your 1st birthday. There hasnít been a day thatís gone by that I havenít missed you. I love you forever and ever, Nugget. I picked out the prettiest urn for you, it has your name engraved on it.

    I am so sad to read that Nugget passed and at such a young age. What a sweet piggy Nugget was and he will forever be close to your heart.

    There are no words to describe fighting for a pig through an illness, and then ultimately having to make the decision to let them go. Knowing how badly that it hurts, and knowing that it is the kindest thing you can do for them.

    There are all kinds of new friends at the Rainbow Bridge, Nugget. I hope you find them and have yourself some fun in the sun. One day, your dad will come and find you again and take you home forever.

    Rest in peace, little man. Know how much you are loved.
