Little Merry, RIP and you will always be remembered.
I DO hang on to the thought that Merry did know happiness for her short life with us. When I saw her in that pet shop at two weeks of age, my heart broke for her. To be told she was the runt of the litter and would live 'out the back with the retired mothers', I felt sick. It took some careful 'negotiations' on Ian's behalf with the pet shop to let us bring her home at 5 weeks old. Every day we were waiting I was worried for her. What they would do with her. But she came home. And always will I be thankful for That! We knew her outcome, she died with dignity. She had her life here.
Yes, my heart breaks and there are tears. But at least she had everything a little piggy deserves during her life here. And that means so much, and I am thankful xxxx
And thank YOU again xxx

I'm sad, so I can imagine how hard this is for you and Ian, but you did right by her. Hugs.
I love the thought of that snugly bundle, mini'smama!
You have all been fantastic, thank you xx
Fairy is keeping watch of her, and will continue the love and care you both gave her.
No matter if they are in our lives for days or years, when they depart the hole in our hearts are big and our hearts are heavy; saying goodbye is never easy.
Do the pet store people even know what a lethal is? If so maybe you can tell Ian. Breeding is bad, but careless breeding that results in lethals is worse.
I'm sorry for your loss, Pippipig.

Jessie was hand fed every 3-5 hours for the last 5 years of her life as she had a molar removed and this caused her mouth to become misaligned. She lived to be 8 years and in fact next month she would have left us 1 year ago.If I remember, I think DaisyMay hand fed her pig Jessie for several years. I think Jessie had teeth issues as she definitely wasn't a lethal white piggy.
I am sorry for your lost of Merry! You showed her love, compassion, comfort and that someone cared. You fed her, cleaned her and even gave her a fizzy lizzy when you blowed dried her.
It bought back many memories of us and sweet Jessie. Like others I had tears in my eyes. I'm sure Jessie, Merry and Fairy are all together with perfect teeth and munching tender green grass comparing notes on how lucky they were.
Sweet little Merry was too precious for this world. Heaven has another wee angel. Sending you and Ian many hugs and hope your heart will heal and that the hole Merry left is filled with sweet memories.
I just wish Merry hadn't had so many issues, it was so unfair. She was such a little fighter and already her character was shining through. I remember hoping against hope that she at least had her molars. Uff. I'm am going through the feeling sad stage, although there have been those moments of being happy that at least she had some joy.
I'm sorry for your loss too, JaneDoe. It is a hard decision to make.
And baby Elsa, Pippippig. Let's hope they all found each other and ARE playing!
Sleep well Merry, I was routing for you as I read your mummy's chronicle, so glad you could pass on from this world happy and with dignity.
