Losing a loved one is never easy - no creature is too small to mourn...
Our youngest little silkie girl, Pichounette, passed away this morning at barely five months of age, after a life-long battle with an enlarged crop - a defect she inherited from her mom.
She never developed properly and fit in the palm of my hand, her massive crop comprising most of her body weight. Poor little angel, she fought until the very end and I cannot help but shed hot tears as I see her last moments nestled in the tall green grasses, a tiny ball of fluff in the sun wasting away - she should have had a long and vibrant life but never had the chance.
I held her cold little body in my hands as she gasped her last weak breaths this morning. I never want to live through that again.
Mommy loves you, little angel... you will be missed very much...
RIP beautiful one.
