R.I.P Pippy :o((((((

Okay, so we had a really bad shock last night. Romy was riding around on Colin's back in the dining room. They scared Willow who ran into his cage. Pippy was just inside the house bit and when Willow ran past him into the house Colin could see that he'd died (he didn't move basically.) Romy was absolutely distraught and clung really tightly to me in tears. Colin picked Pip up and he was as stiff as a board (Romy didn't see.) Goodness knows how many hours he'd been gone. Poor thing. It was so unexpected. He was fine earlier in the day. The other two piggies seem very subdued at the moment.

Poor Romy said she wouldn't be able to sleep last night. I told her I'd stay up with her (what sort of Mummy wouldn't?) We played games in bed and read Paddington. Bless her, it was gone 2am when she finally dropped off :o( She's feeling a bit better today. She's been to her XMA class which took her mind off it for a while and now she's out at the museum archaeology club with Colin for an hour. We might try and think of something special to do later as a treat.

Here's a nice picture of Pippy (top) with his brothers. He was such a gentle soul. He always looked out for little Toby and loved licking our fingers. He only ever bit anyone once, when Romy's fingers smelled of cucumber :o) He's gone to play with Squeaky now, bless him.

And here are a couple of photo's of him as a baby...

Poor Pip. :( That's really sad news. xxx We're sending lots of hugs too. I'm so afraid of finding Moose dead one morning, he's so old.

However, he is going to move back in with Cheesecake soon - so will you be wanting another one in a few months?

Don't know yet. ATM I'd say no, but then again it's worth asking in a few months ;o)

How old is Moose? Pippy wasn't even 3 yet :o(

Moose is 6. He's an old man, and his eyes are starting to cloud over. Hopefully he's still got a little bit of life left in him though, as he's going in with Cheesecake this week sometime. ;)
