Another goodbye today

Why again? 
Why now?
Most of you don't know what a DEGU is.
They are little fur babies.
Sweet as can be.

We buried her today in our little pet cemetery.
She's now with her mother who also passed away last year.

R.I.P. little girl.

No matter how small they are, they make a 

in our lives.

Dear Cladie,
I'm so very sorry to read about your tiny itty-bitty furbaby. What a precious little sweetie she was. The pictures you've shared are beautiful and it's clear to see that was truly loved.

Sending you lots of love and big hugs. Thinking of you.

Loretta said...

How so very hurts sooo much to let them go! Hugs! Love you!

jeanne said...

Oh, Claudie, I am so sorry. The poor little thing. We used to have hamsters and we loved them dearly. When we lost them one by one we were all so sad. I do understand how sad it was for all of you.

We just arrived home today and we are so tired. This is a short comment Claudie.

I love you to Pieces,
Jeanne xoxoxo

An extra touch of you in Heaven for your mama? I don't know. It is a lot of hurt all at once. My grandfather died in April 2001, and exactly five weeks later, my grandmother--his wife--died. The morning she died was the day we got the bill from the florist for my grandfather's funeral arrangements--It just all happened so fast. Life is just so hard sometimes. Hang onto love and goodness, my friend. And I hope the days ahead are easier on you.

My dear friend, I am so sorry! It seems like once the losses start they do not end! I know the love we have for our fur babies is so strong. Sending you big hugs! love you, Linda

Claudie I'm so sorry to hear about your little furry pal~ I have never heard of a DEGU, but so sweet looking! So tough to say good by to our furry friends, we share our secrets with them, and they always love us don't they~

Huggs Sweet Claudie~

I have never seen one of these tiny babies before, sure are cute. So sad to loose any sweet pet to death, especially when we have mothered and loved them. I don't know about you, but I believe they will be ours again in the next life. :D

Sending hugs your way. Losing a pet is so hard and sad, and more so because you were already feeling such loss.

Do something kind for yourself today
and may new joys fill your heart...

Oh, Claudie... I am so sorry. I hate that this has happened to you on top of your other loss. But what a precious little creature and how blessed she was to have you and Randy and your children in her life. What a sweetie pie. May she rest in peace. And may you rest peacefully knowing that you made her life a happier one!

Was that cute little thing there when we were visiting you in July??...I guess it was.
I didn't see it.
so sorry it has left you now, at this time.
Doesn't matter how big, or how small
How little or how long we had them with us
A loss is a loss....and is always mourned

We had a pet cemetary also in my yard in Utah. 2 doggies are there and I feel bad that I have left them. Under the apple tree.

BIG HUG and I love ya

I can't bear it. I just can't bear seeing such a sweet thing go...oh Claudie, we love you! Yes, small things make big impacts and c'est la vie, I suppose...but it hurts.

Blessings of love to you my girl...and let me know when your package arrives! Anita

Oh Cludie, sorry to hear about your littlest fur baby. I have never heard of these, but they look like little hamsters. We have a bunch of fur babies buried in our yard too. Rabbits, hamsters, and a cockatiel. We were heartbroken when each one passed. Our rabbits were like cats. They had a litter box, and ran around in the house for hrs at a time. then go back in their cages, because they love to chew wires. One would come running when she heard bags rattling, or spoons clinking. She would jump up on the couch and snuggle under the blanket with us. Never had a rabbit like that one. Opps, here come the tears...

Love you!
Debbie xxoo

Deborah aka Miss Bee said...

Oh, Sweet friend, another loss. I'm so sorry. Why didn't we meet this littlest one this past summer?

We're home from Texas - late Sunday night and family just left for their home in Michigan. I'm trying to recoup now. Soooo tired!

I love you - now I'm going for a little nap.


Deborah aka Miss Bee said...

Yes, the video and the sound of hurt in your precious voice made me cry too. ...wrapping arms around you with love.


Jennifer Hayslip said...

Sweetest Claudie, It breaks my heart to know you lost a precious fur baby. :(( It's our little furbabies that give us unconditional love and help us get thru the hard times. Sending you lots of warm hugs and love your way! XOXO,Jenn

*sigh* You are killing me here. Tears and heart tugs need to stop.

Our eyes will be surrounded by those Nasty bags... :)
(have to interject some humor because the other option is sad)

Enough sad for you darlin -- Like we talked about the other evening ENOUGH already.

Thank you for sharing you darling Juliet with me. We had such a fabulous time and talked about you like crazy. Were you ears burning? ;)

Just like leaving you ... I didnt want to leave her. What a blessing you all are in my life. Thank you for being YOU.

Lovin you from Utah.

Dear French Poodle friend... :*( I remember seeing this little guy this summer as he ran near the house at one point... I don't know why some experience so much loss so close makes my heart sad that it's you this time love! :( But I do know he's in little Deju heaven...wherever that may be. One of the first things God created were I know they are dear to his heart too, just as much as they are dear to you. Take comfort in knowing many are praying for you honey...and not just for the loss of little Deju...however, we'll now be remembering his lil life too. I pray another gift of a Deju will come into your never know. Loving you like crazy friend...and am ready for a talk! How about you? xoxo LYTTMAB ~CC

Aw...Claudette...that is so sad. I am such an animal lover that it pains me to feel your loss.
It matters not the size of our little friends, but rather the size of the impression they've left on our hearts.

Thinking of you

I couldn't help but cry at the end of this. Reminded me of the time my degu died and I held her right up until her last breath.
Sorry for your loss xx
Now where are my tissues :'(
