A Moment of Zen
Some people call them gargoyles, keeping away the evil spirits, perched high on the corners of buildings, protecting all those who dwell within.....

I call her Waffles.

I Can Never Be Guinea Pig-Less...
Everyone please welcome Pickles McHushpuppy and Go Go Gadget!

I would like to thank the wonderful people at The Critter Corral and the links they sent me at Petfinder. I wanted just one single male, but when I saw thses two angels, I just had to have them. After some paperwork and a small adoption fee, they have come home finally.
My home is complete again. They are still so young and are just beginning to learn how to "wheek". They also appear to be potty trained, I am not sure how but they are going in one corner so I put a litter pan in there and they seem to enjoy using it.
I am so over joyed.

Sadness Turns into Appreciation
It has been almost a week now since Onion has left us. His giant cage sits clean and empty in the spot it had always resided. I cannot bear to move it. Being Guinea-Pig-Less has been rough, but I am moving more towards appreciation then depression now. I am so thankful I had Onion in my life. I am so thankful I have my other babies to help me grieve. And I am so grateful to have a man who shares my pain and love for these angels. Please watch over my family Onion, I hope your having a blast with your new angel wings.

Jeremy and his girl Dandelion.

Goodbye Onion.
Friends....Last night as I arrived home from work, My Jeremy tells me my piggy has been acting odd. I picked up him thinking he was just missing his momma and in a flash, he had a heart-attack and slipped away. My beloved Onion waited all day for me and finally went to sleep in my arms as I rocked him. I kissed him and held him tight so he would not be frightened. I held him for a long time after that, then laid him in his bed. He will spend his first night in the afterlife with us so as not be scared. He will be buried tomorrow next to his kin in the garden at my parents house. I am grieving immensely....So many goodbye's..I wonder is it all worth it? Can I withstand this heart-ache? Then I picture what Onions life might have been without me. He was a rescue. I know others need me and I will take comfort in that and pursue my mission of saving them. I cannot sleep for my babies final moments haunt my closed eye-sight. I wish I knew he was ok...I wish I could see him just one more time. I hope he is warm where ever he is. My dearest Onion, please tell Coal mouse, Radish, Moo and Dime Momma misses them terribly and that I will see you all again.

I made this memorial video with pictures and music for all to enjoy in Onions life.
