    Bob Dylan

    Bye bye our little Bob Dylan. You did such a great job and taught us so much about the power of resilience and a positive attitude. Your zest for life was so beautiful to behold. We are all so proud of you. Everyone loves you. Have fun with Burton up in heaven. We’ll see you on the other side.

    Innocent, gentle, trusting Ruby loved life & her natural diet, especially Radicchio lettuce, Timothy Hay, dried vegetables. Intrigued, she’d watch Pamela run on an exercise wheel then suddenly discovered this joy one night; loved to run through cardboard/bamboo tubes; greeted Pamela with affectionate gurgling chirps before they groomed each other; loved redecorating -moving branches & clearing paths through Timothy Hay & dried flowers. We miss you Ruby. Enjoy a digging box over the degu rainbow.

    She was with me for many years. Rick, his dad and staff suffered through her squeaking and loud noises but loved her. She was my non human half. She loved me and listened to me natter all day. Shirley you were very special and I will miss you deeply.

    Tweety, you were the best and my favourite budgie ever. I’ll miss your singing and your curiosity. Rest in peace, Tweety.

    I am so fortunate to have had you in my life. You had such a big personality, and were full of attitude. You knew exactly what you wanted and achieved it most of the time. Yet you were very affectionate, loving to snuggle with your brother, Quintus, and cuddling with me when you got older. You were confident, clever, funny, and exasperating; you never lost your drive for life, even when health issues made things so difficult for you. I will never forget you: my mouse, my gerbil, my love.

    My little doll. I loved watching how much you enjoyed everything in life, from the first time you got to dig in deep bedding, to chewing stir sticks and eating treats. You were such a sweetheart, giving me kisses and making me laugh. You were also adventurous and agile, doing ‘gerbil-parkour’ on the couch. You were only with me for a short time, but I’m glad I got to know you and happy you were able to have cuddles with Kit. I miss you lots.

    Oreo was a very sweet and loving guinea pig we rescued from Piggles Rescue. She was a companion to Praline and she was blind in one eye. My daughter Laila loved her very much and took good care of her. We miss her sweet self and we hope she is happy up in heaven.

    Praline liked taking her food, but Laila always made sure she had some!
    Since she was blind in one eye Oreo couldn’t see the bowl properly that’s also why she couldn’t find the food, but she was very sweet and caring to us!(:

    Angela was the sweetest degu on Earth.  She came from a loving home and I first met her when she was the first to run out from a baby degu ball to greet me.  It was love at first sight.  I knew she was the right one for me and to keep Pamela safe and warm.  Angela and Pamela did not require a formal introduction process.  It was a match made in heaven. No matter how much Angela squealed and stole (nuts) from Pamela, Pamela was always there for her.  Right to the end.  Angela made her last breath while cuddling with Pamela in a warm, soft blanket.

    We will both miss you Angela and your always happy orange smile.  Hopefully you will continue to be Pamela’s guardian Angel.

    RIP my sweet little buns. It was heartbreaking to hold you in my arms for the last time but you are in a better place now. You had some much love in one little package and taught me so much about unconditional love. I will miss you and you will always have a place in my heart. Love you forever and always. ❤️❤️❤️❤
