Horrible, horrible news.


I am in tears as I type this but today I love my baby. Not my human baby (because I well, have none.), but my shelled baby. We are assuming that Scooter passed on sometime last night or yesterday and have no idea specifically why. We were thinking age, but he was only 8 years old, according to who I got him from, and then we thought an animal attack, but there were no signs...I simply just found him burrowed down in the ground...dead. I would have mentioned something in my first post today, but I was unaware of what happened had happened at that point in time.

Anyways, I just wanted to post this up to let you all know. I know some of you are big fans of my little man. He's currently buried in a show box in my yard, no 'tombstone' is made yet, unfortunately.





Who would've thought I would be so distraught over such a small animal? I mean, the little guy was a big part of my life and I miss him so much! I miss walking outside in the morning only to see him motoring about the yard and I miss him RUNNING towards me when I had a plate piled high with his special dindins...Oh goodness. :(

Anyways, yes, that's what happened. Needless to say, I am not exactly handling it well what with my PTSD towards death.

I wanted to make sure that you all know that I'm not asking for sympathy! I just want my friends to know that a prominent and super loved character in my life and on this blog has passed.

Oh I'm so sorry you lost your little friend! :( Have you had him for all of the 8 years? He looks like a real sweetheart <3 When mine died we didn't know the cause either. We assume she was sick but our vet had no experience with 'exotic' animals. :-/ I hope you'll feel better soon!

I hope I'll get over it soon! It's just so hard knowing he wont come running when I set down his dindins and all that small stuff you don't think about until now! I don't deal with death of anything well, so it's been bard. I hadn't had him the entire 8 years. He was a rescue and I'd had him about a year, I think?
