    Our little baby...

    Oh Red, my dear girl I am so very sorry to hear about poor little Ron. I can not believe he has gone so soon. I know how proud you were of him, he had a very loveing home with you and Lyle caring for his every need. Thinking of you with much love xxxx:face-crying:

    Rest in peace sweet sweet Ron. You are missed.

    I am so very sorry Red and Lyle. There is never a 'good' time to lose a pet, but it just makes it all the worse being Christmas. NN is right, you gave him wonderful care, and we have enjoyed sharing in his life with you.

    Sleep soundly Ron. :heart:

    Thanks very much for the messages everyone...we're still gutted. We left a message at the specialist's saying the vet appt wasn't needed anymore...the room just looks empty without Ron's house next to the couch.

    Keeper of the hens

    Thank you very much TM, that's a very nice thing to say...we have a bit of an empty house at the moment, as Hammy has gone back to his proper owners :face-crying: Just us, our Bubba dog, the hissers and Pearl...they've all been getting extra love, especially Pearl as I think she misses Bam in her own way, and Kasper searched all around for Ron's cage after we cleaned and moved it to the cellar...

    Ron did have a good time whilst he was with us though, even if it wasn't long enough...I think my favourite memory is of him chasing the ribena bottle as it rolled and trying to eat the picture of grass from the label, heh.

    I did wonder if Kasper noticed. Dogs have such an excellent sense of smell and also they 'sense' things in other ways too. ha ha the Ribena bottle grass, that is a funny image of Ron, the little darlin',

    I'm not sure if he knew what it meant, but he definitely sensed the atmosphere and went searching for the cage. Whenever I've been feeling sad these past few days Kasper comes over...but his attempts to cheer me up are terrible; grab a toy in his mouth and jump all over me!! Idiot dog, a gentle cuddle would do...!
