    Default Ferk

    My Ferk has left on the next part of her journey. It was time. She crossed peacefully, but slowly, determined to the end to stay with her mom as long as possible. Even after she was gone, I kept expecting her to leap up, her sparky little spirit winning out over her so-done body.

    This is never an easy thing to go through, no matter how many times you do it. But this was the worst one yet. I've loved all my animals, but there are a few who sneak into the heart of your heart: Alex, Dax, my angel Wen (who was with her as she crossed), and now Ferk. I'm shattered.

    Godspeed, my little baby girl. We squeezed a lifetime into 3 years...til we're together again.

    I'm so sorry, Paula. I have thought of you and sweet Ferk all day. Those who refuse to leave us are so hard. It's the ultimate compliment, I think.

    I'm so sorry, Paula. As you say, some of them just worm their way into your very soul. Godspeed, little Ferk

    I am so sorry Paula! You are a very special person who despite all the heartbreak continues to take in those seniors. They know it! Big hug to you!

    Oh, but she did... we just can't see it happen . I hope you can feel her by your side and in your heart.

    I'm so sorry. She obviously loved life with you very, very much based on how long she hung on with all her medical problems. Tough little cookie.

    Thanks everyone. Heidi was looking for her sister but now she's at Nancy's til I can look after her again probably in another 6 weeks

    Kim, thanks for that lovely thought. Normally I can feel them go cross with Wen but Laura was still there...ling story... and it was a bit uncertain when she actually went. But a very comforting image.
