    My sweet Ben

    So 2 weeks ago yesterday my hubby and I lost our first piggy. Ben meant the world to us and we miss him so much. He was fine in the morning but come dinner time he wasn't moving around or eating and when i scratched under his chin I felt a lump. I called every vet in a 50 mile radius but to no avail. Finally got one to look at him but when we put him in the car he started convulsing. He didn't live but 2 mins after we got to the vet. They said his tummy filled with fluid and he had a tumor under his chin. (have to wonder about that one) Never felt anything under his chin and i scratch him there multiple times a day. So we brought him home and buried him under our favorite tree. Hubby is sick with missing him. Neither one of us knew how it was so easy to fall deeply in love with these guys. He is sleeping in this photo I thought it was cute he fell asleep with his foot in the food bowl. Click image for larger version.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. The pain of loosing an animal never goes away, you just learn to cope. He is at the Rainbow Bridge, and I am sure Boy and Winter are going to be there to welcome him over.

    I am so sorry! I know how hard that kind of pain hits you!!! He is in heaven now. Time will heal all wounds but I know how tragic and painful it can be for a while. I am so sorry.
