Oh PM, I was so sorry to read this. I know it's tough to lose your first piggie. I lost Gizmo this year. *hugs* You didn't let him down at all! He passed peacefully, knowing love, every amenity, and safety. For such simple, sweet little creatures, that's truly heaven.
Oh Liz, my hear absolutely sank to see this, I am so sorry to hear about Percy. I thought of this poem, and will be thinking of you.:hug:
RIP dear Percy
Oh, why are you shining so bright, big Sun,
And why is the garden so gay?
Do you know that my days of delight are done,
Do you know I am going away?
If you covered your face with a cloud, I 'd dream
You were sorry for me in my pain,
And the heads of the flowers all bowed would seem
To be weeping with me in the rain.
But why is your head so low, sweet heart,
And why are your eyes overcast?
Are they clouded because you know we must part,
Do you think this embrace is our last?
Then kiss me again, and again, and again,
Look up as you bid me good-bye!
For your face is too dear for the stain of a tear,
And your smile is the sun in my sky.
Aw, I am so sorry. I always thought "What a cutie!" when I saw your avatar. I bet he is happily popcorning around with a herd of ladies trailing behind him. You never know, hey he could be riding my old horse Cheyenne!
I'm so sorry. I know how hard it is to lose your first piggie. I was devastated when I lost my Slushie girl. She was the world to me. I'm sure Percy misses you, and will be waiting to see you again. Until then, he would want you to be happy.
