Goodbye, dear Pippin <3 [Jun. 12th, 2011|12:02 pm]

Our little Pippin died yesterday afternoon. It was very sudden, and very quick - a stroke most likely. He simply fell from the perch in his cage and was gone. Ken and I were both there in the room. I saw him fall and jumped up immediately to see what had happened, but there was nothing we could do. It's such a helpless feeling to stand by and watch a beloved pet die before your eyes. But I am so very grateful that we shared his company for six years, that we were there with him in the end, and that it was quick.

He was such a lovely, funny and dear little personality. He could always make us laugh. He will be missed very much.

Oh, sweetheart...I am so sorry. Pets are such amazing givers of unconditional love and they become such an integral part of the fabric of our lives; it is so hard when they leave us. :( I'm glad you have such wonderful memories of your dear Pippin. ♥

Thank you, dear. *hugs tightly* Yes, it's amazing how much a part of our lives they become, and how much loved, and how keenly their absence is felt. He and I had such a close connection - it will be hard for a while. I wrote a separate private post of all the cute, funny, affectionate things he used to do, so that I can keep all those best memories fresh. ^.^

I'm so sorry. I loved Pippin too, and I never got to meet him in person. Their little lives are too short. But his was certainly a happy one.

Ooooh, that's so sad! *sniffles*
I'm so sorry! Pets become such a big part of your life, it's really like a family member has passed away. *hugs tightly*
I can understand you'll miss Pippin, he seemed such a character from the stories you told about him. *hugs again*

Thank you, sweetie. He was such a smart and funny little character, and was always making us laugh. He was involved in our day so much, it's going to be a while before I stop listening for his voice and looking up to where his cage used to be expecting to see him. *hugs back tightly*
