June has been crazy. Five days after I came home from Nashville, Sammie passed away. I spent that entire week trying to save him. He ended up passing away in the very early morning of Friday, June 5. It’s definitely not what I expected to happen right after coming home from a wonderful trip – and I wasn’t even expecting it to happen within the next three years!
My guinea pig Sammie passed away on Friday. I adopted him in January but in the short time he was a part of our family, I wasn’t the only one who became extremely attached to him. And I’m not the only one who’s struggling with his loss.
Early this morning I lost my Sammie. It was a terrible, tragic death. I watched him decline so rapidly over the course of four days. It was painful for me, but I can only imagine how painful it was for him.
April 11th is National Pet Day, so in honor of this fantastic day (although everyday is pet day in my house!) here are some photos of my kids!
I am so thrilled that there is a month dedicated to guinea pigs! I’ve had a guinea pig in my life for over 6 years now. I recently lost my Kirby on 1-23-15 and shortly after, I rescued my Sammie from AZ Piggie Poo Rescue. I also started volunteering for the rescue and it’s been amazing!
