Thumper is trundling along, he's old and he's now on meds; he's eating (woohoo) but he's not gaining any substantial weight as of yet. We're just going to have to keep an eye or two on him and hope he gets better.
Meanwhile, I have been rather poorly. I got a nasty, horrid virus that left me going back and forth to the doctors and hospital all week (which was beyond fun), and to top all that we're starting our A level work which I have missed a week of. *Is stressed*
The pigs have been enjoying the grass, when the weather has permitted them to do so!
Dusty, as ever, is eager to hoover the whole lot up in one swift munching!
They both also enjoyed some munching time on a wellyboot too! (Taking a leaf out of Momo's McChompChomp's book!)
We're all glad to see the sun again and hopefully this sun with it will bring some more happy times for us! :-)
This year has been a rather hard year (no, I'm not going to moan) and this week was going to be crazy stressed anyway (I have my AS results on Thursday and a second MRI scan of the year on Friday) but we came home on holiday to some devastating news.
I don't know all of the details but Dusty had a fit this morning and she had to be rushed to the vets - she's passed on. I don't know what caused it or anything like that because we don't know yet but it's just heart breaking.
Dusty was... greedy. She ate and ate and ate and ate and she would do ANYTHING to get the food.
She was sweet and would love to cuddle sometimes, when she knew she'd get food out of it.
She looked after her Mummy, Bubbles.
And was most definitely the Queen Bee!
Most of all, though, she had this really (really) sweet face. A face that melted your heart and made you give her food...
... a face that made you think "perhaps it was Poppy who ate all the food..." for a minuscule second...
Dusty had a big character; she was forever singing away and shouting her head off. I'm going to miss that. I'm going to miss her nibbles, her screams, her pure tubbyness and her expressions. I'm going to miss her confidence and determination and I'm going to miss her. Just everything about her.
Please share the food with Bubbles over the Bridge, Dusty boo. Rest in peace.
