ROSE 21.8.07 - 25.08.07
We are all terribly sad because our darling little Rose didn't make it:(
Although she seemed as happy and content as the others, she was unable to feed properly because of a very unusual, congenital defect. Joy had hand fed her night and day, as well as encouraging her to suckle, when first veterinary checks failed to find her problem but she still lost weight. A further veterinary examination led to the heartbreaking decision to put her to rest, to save her any suffering, as she would have literally starved to death. There was absolutely no way to save her so we had to let her go with the angels.
Frolic in the sunshine and bathe in God's moonbeams
Use the stars as stepping stones to take you to your peace
The pain of life forgotten now you have found release.
Without rain a flower folds, the petals drop and die
The little seed is planted, you'll be watered every day
That is beautiful, just right for that little special flower who never had the chance to blossom and grow.
I'm in floods of tears again, but know there was no choice at all.
I keep telling myself that she would now be suffering if still in this life, and it's good to know she didn't get to that stage.
She was a special little flower which God and the angels wanted back before her life had really begun.
Rest in Peace, little Rose. You were well loved in the short time you were here with us.
