Goodbye Baby
Last night I had Baby out for a little longer than usual. She looked better, ate twice as much, drank twice as much and enjoyed her bath and blow dry more than usual with much attempt to stretch and play. I really thought we had made a turning point. I put her to bed around 11, got up to turn her at 4am then again at 10pm, then I went to work...She fell asleep. I am very upset although I knew it was coming..It hurts so much to say goodbye, i will find peace with it, but I know she was smiling when i laid her down for the final time. I was able to be apart of her life, I am so grateful.

Of course my tribute to my hog angel, have a blast with your new wings my sweet.

I'm so sorry, Steffy. It sounds like she had a wonderful last day with you and left peacefully, but it leaves such a hole in your heart.
{Hugs} from everybody here.

Steffy, i am so sorry. she was blessed to have you to take such good care of her. and wonderful that her last hours were her healthiest and most animated in a while - a little gift for you before she said goodbye.

archi died this morning so i share the pain of the goodbye. i did not get to say nor did i expect it. i know it hurts.

they have a better life with us and we do our best.

I am so sorry Steffy. Baby was a special little hog. She loved you much and made sure that her last moments with you were wonderful.

Many hugs! We're thinking of you!

Baby had the best life every with you Steffy and is probably telling every little critter at the Rainbow Bridge about it. We are sending foofs, purrs, and nosekisses to you from the Fluffy Tribe & Jane

Oh Stef....I am so sorry. Even though you knew this day was coming, it's still never easy to say good-bye.

I think Baby knew it would be her last day, and she got as much out of it as her little body would let her. She wanted to let you know how much she enjoyed her dinners, her bathtime and blow dry and savored each activity knowing it was her last. She passed on in the best way possible - without pain, without suffering, surrounded by her favorite things and favorite people. I know she will always be around you, as your own special little quilly angel. It's not often that we know people that not only love animals, but put their animals first, even before themselves. Baby was truly "your baby", and it showed. You were both lucky to have each other, and that bond will never die. Big hugs to you, Miss Steffy.

I'm very sorry to hear about Baby's passing. It sure hurts when they go, and I hope the hurt goes quickly and the good memories last forever.

You gave Baby such wonderful care. We know you miss her and she leaves a hole in your heart. She was a cute little hedgehog.

Hugs
