And then we cried

Bart was dead this morning. He was curled up like he was asleep, so I hope he went peacefully. I'm going to miss my big, shy boy who gave me a big, stunning fleece each year; I am heartbroken that we could not help him recover.

The show – or rather, the skirting – must go on, though. I got a start today, getting Browning's and Benny's done. If Brian cooperates, I should be able to get another couple done tomorrow.

That's it for today from . . .

It is so heartbreaking to lose any of our furred, fleeced or feathered one. I am so sorry, Michelle.

I don't think it matters which one they are, they always break our hearts in some way shape or form. Hope good things happen soon:)

I am so sorry. I do hope him being curled up meant he passed peacefully in his sleep. That's the best anyone can hope for. Many hugs and love to you and yours.
