Rest In Peace Buffy




Poor Buffy, our Orpington, died today. I noticed last night she was droopy, so we checked her this morning and I brought her in. She was very flushed and droopy. I gave her water with a dropper and some high calorie paste, but I could tell she probably wouldn't make it. I suspect from her straining and trying to push that she had been egg-bound, and developed a nasty infection. There was no egg this morning. She had passed by lunch time when Dave came home. Rest in peace beautiful girl. Mommy loves you...

Yes, and when you only have 3 it's tough. I guess I'll be getting 2 babies in the spring!
