    Unhappy Goodnight Rocky, you will be missed

    Rocky passed away on Sunday night. He went to the vet on Saturday to get his molar filed and he didnít recover from anesthesia. He was estimated to be around 5. I adopted him August 2009 and the rescue said he was 2 Ĺ - 3 years old. I fell in love with him the moment I saw his pictures. He was my most favorite pig and the first one to pass away. He was always the first one to greet me. Always at the front of the cage with his nose up in the air.

    I couldnít write about it until today because it feels so unreal. I wished if I hadnít post about it, it would only be a bad dream and I would wake up to find him popcorning around in the cage. I miss him so much.

    Goodnight Rocky. I hope you make lots of new friends at the bridge and tell all of them whoís the boss.

    I am sorry for your loss.
    He looks like a real charmer. I know you will miss him dearly.
    It is so hard when a pet passes.

    Re: Goodnight Rocky, you will be missed

    Lissie, I am so sorry for the loss of Rocky, He sure looked like he had alot of personality, plus being beautiful/handsome. I know how you feel. When I lost my Legelas I was heartbroken. I have lost other pigs but Legelas was special. Rocky, was special. I am so sorry for you that he is gone. He is now waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge.

    I am so sorry for your loss. This made me cry. He is so beautiful. Is it common for guinea pigs to not recover from anesthesia or was it a mistake by the vet?

    I'm trying to get more info from the vet on what anesthesia was used and the dosage. I called them this morning to request for all the files and they haven't got back to me.

    I believe there are risks involved in using anesthesia.

    Thank you! It was captured from a webcam.

    Here's another video of Rocky and his friends doing tricks.

    Also with age, anesthesia can become tricky and he was so darn cute How are your other cavys doing with this?

    Re: Goodnight Rocky, you will be missed

    We were watching Rocky's videos. Even my husband was crying.

    Rocky was living with Oreo when he passed. Cookie had moved to another cage to live with Puffy about a year ago. Oreo seems sad. He's not coming out from his hidey as much. I am planning to introduce him to Cookie and Puffy this weekend.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I was crying watching those videos. I'm sure Rocky knew how much you loves him. Sounds like he had a wonderful life with you.

    Hi, Lis...........so sorry to hear about Rocky! He looks like a real rascal full of personality, and they do make an indelible impression on us, don't they? I know how difficult it can be to lose one of your "babies".

    My best to you and the family.

    Re: Goodnight Rocky, you will be missed

    Oh, this brought tears to my eyes . I'm so sorry for your loss of Rocky. When Curia passed away, I would walk over to her cage and play area, and remember her there. These little lovelies crawl into your heart and don't let go. You clearly loved Rocky, and he was fond of you too. At least you have pictures and videos to remember him by. I'm sure he's having a blast across the rainbow bridge.
