Farewell, Beau


Sighs. The single most difficult part of fur family relationships is saying good bye, or not. We lost one of our fur family members early this morning without warning, and needless to say we're all shocked and terribly saddened. From what I've read the average life span is 4-5 years but he seemed so virile just yesterday, whistling and waddling about in his cage. This is all so very sudden which compounds the grief, although I guess, you're never fully ready to lose a pet.

Beau, our Peruvian Cavy was with us only a short time in our lives, but his entire lifetime. He has left us with rich memories and an unrivaled standard in cavy coiffure. Beau was an undeniably striking fellow, with his flowing tortoise locks and come hither stare. Okay, the stare was more, Where's the alfalfa? than come hither, but these are my memoirs; I'm allowed such liberties. Smiles

For now, I must bid you fine blog friends adieu as we make arrangements to send Monsieur Beau over the rainbow bridge in style, just the way he would've wanted, the best we can offer still holds no candle to all he deserved. Farewell, furry dude.



Peace

Guinea pigs have such funny little personalities, don't they? Ours is quite demanding - -and charming, so I imagine Beau must have been as well. Sorry, sorry.

I am so sorry about dear Beau, who was such a beauty and I am sure a sweetie, too. (I still feel sad over the loss of our Guinea pig, Olga... and that was many years ago.)

Mo and I send you lots of love and warm wishes.
