Somtimes in the journey of our lives thing happen that we cant stop. People leave, incomes change, caretakers really cannot continue taking care...sad as it is. I have often thought the what ifs for us.
If i didnt have Mr. Wheekers I would physically not be able to care for my fur babies. I would have to make a similar choice.
I am happy for brave Momo to go so far and be with her forever family.

Through the past week, through emails, phone calls late at night and mailers, you all held my hands and told me we will work this through...
Although I still have tons of packing to do, I need to stop by and say a proper bye.
It has been impossibly difficult to look at my apartment without the cage, and hard to remember not to grab pig veggies as I went to buy milk at Safeway on Saturday,..
I look frantically around while sitting in a restaurant that had a very squeaky doors, and of course, that alarm i have in my own head, lookit, 9pm, veggie time.
Hard not to parade into the living room and say "Emma, lookit what i got today,..."
It is the littlest things.. the snorfles, the way their heads smell, the way Maxie stands at his attention when the coffee grinder goes off,...
I will be leaving tonight, it is too hard for me to wait till Sunday, and Ben will fly on Sunday night.
But before we say goodbye, McChompChomp does have something hooge to announce...
We will all keep in touch, and there is so much I want to tell you about their new homes, but time is ticking and a momo needs to get packing...
Please continue to let us know how you are doing, and what we can do (if anything) to support you in your new journey.

Like everyone else, I am very sad to hear that you are not able to bring the pigs with you as we know how much you love them. Without a doubt, I am sure you left no stone unturned to find the best possible home for Emma, Maxie and Bernie.
We loved reading your Chronicles and laughed and cried with you as you so generously shared your stories and life with your pigs, past and present. Thanks again for sharing them with us and hope you will keep in touch.

Congratulations to you both! Lots of exciting times ahead for you, I wish you both the very best, lots of love and happiness forever.
And I would definitely never judge you. You've done everything you possibly can for your guinea pigs and you will miss them dearly.
I can just imagine you trying to trying to sneak them onto a plane, a bundle of squeaking lumps under your jumper.
