we have to go- in memoriam by oliko we have to go- in memoriam by oliko
If you don't have anything nice to say, don't comment, thank you.

Two days ago my pet degu Dani died.
It's a hard time for me, everything which reminds me of this little creature makes me cry.
In such moments I like to think that the pets, when die, become angels, or at least go to a place where they won't suffer anymore.

In the picture you can see Dani (died October 2009), Neon (July 2009) and Laguna (the smallest one, died in 2005), the three degus of mine. Each of them died from long-lasting illnesses. They did wanted to live, my family and I fought for their lives but lost.

Goodbye, my dear little friends. I miss you very, very much and won't forget you.

:hug: dejus are adorable. i'm sorry... i got rather attached to my hamsters and it's awful to feel dying life in your hands. Marty (my hamster) had to be put down but he was pretty much asleep in my palms... i still miss him too...

I'm so sorry you lost your pets. I lost my rat Molly this summer and I know how much it hurts and how hard it is to say goodbye. This is a lovely picture of them and you together and I'm sure all three of them are in a better place.

A pet is a part of the family, closer than some humans can become even to each other.
Animals who can't speak tend to from the deepest of spiritual and emotionally connective of bonds.

:hug: I'm sorry for your loss, my dear. I know how much it hurts when you lose a pet. They become as dear to you as anything else in life, and it's hard when you have to let them go.

I'm sure you gave them all you could and I'm sure they appreciated all you did.
Keep them in your heart. :heart:

I do believe in angles~ they'll always be with you since you love them so much and treasure the time you spent with them. even though you can't see them anymore but they are still their. They'll be happy if you get through this and cheer up again~:w00t:

Rozumiem twój smutek :< Najgorszą rzeczą jest stracić coś bliskiego, drogiego... Będzie okay, zobaczysz. Tak, jak w moim przypadku- a po roku zarzekania się po stracie ukochanego psa, w pewien zimowy wieczór wróciłam do domu zaryczana, trzymając w kocu małego szczeniaka :)
Trzymaj się kochana!

Very lovely sketch. I'm sorry to hear of your loss. I believe our pets, along with all aminals, have souls and do move on to a better place. I hope you feel better soon. And I will include Dani in my prayers.

I completely understand how you feel, and I agree with you about the angels. Have you ever heard of the rainbow bridge? It's where all the animals that we loved wait for us when they pass on. I bet you your degus are waiting for you there. ^_^
