The passing of a guinea...

Our beloved Cocoa died today. I am so sad. We tried really hard to save him but he just couldn't breathe this morning. He was such a cute guinea pig, I really miss him heaps. It was so hard taking him to the vet, I didn't want to, I wanted us to just keep him until he died, but Christy didn't want to see him struggling so hard to breathe. And he really was struggling. Finn came to the vet's, too, and he's very sad without really understanding what he's going through. Cocoa was a lively and loving guinea who always cuddled up under your chin, and I guess we're lucky to have had him with us for the last two and a half years. Here's one of Finn's guinea pics from that time, the Night Guinea,

- You will later be glad you were together, and that you did all you could to ease his last moments
Yeah, it felt so right to be holding him while he was trying so hard to breathe.
I'm going to miss Cocoa.
Thanks for your kind words. Finn drew that picture in Paint a couple of years ago, I think, and I always liked it.
