RIP Little sweet Pootle.

She gave up the fight with bladder stones last night whilst cradled in my arms, in no pain, and crossed over the Rainbow Bridge.

She will be sorely missed and we both (hubby and I) are devastated and can't stop crying.
We took her to a lovely little country private crematorium up in Wales where we could put her body to rest, forever in our hearts and forever in our minds, waiting to be joined with us and our other piggies in the future.
Love you loads and miss you more than words can ever say, our dearest gorgeous, lovable Pootsy Pie.

Pootle was of our first piggies - a black & white Aby, with a cute ginger brown bottom. She was mischevious and liked to whinge but she was the biggest softy ever. She never got snappy or annoyed at us and would have spent forever curled up under our warm jumpers, cradled in our arms.
Only 3 years old, too young to die, but after battling since Xmas with stones, doing everything we possibly could for her, she just gave up the fight last night after trying to pass a 6mm round stone.

I wish I could have done more for you Pootle and saved your pain. I wish I could have insisted on more than just Baytrill for your squealing all these months or gone to seen a specialist or had you x-rayed, but I can't go back in time now and when I did do everything I could, it just wasn't enough.

Love you forever
x

I am very sorry that you have lost Pootle despite all your efforts.

I have lost my first piggy Minx after a long and bitter battle with bladder stones as well. It was very devastating on me as well.

RIP Pootle - popcorn free and happy again!

So sorry to hear, just been through this with Smartie, did everything we could as you did but sadly wasn't to be, he was only 18months :(
RIP Pootle and Smartie and all the others so recently lost, so devastating as Wiebke says.

thanks so much you guys.
I think we have a good enough reason to form a 'stones hate group' :( . They are evil things and I really feel for every owner that had their piggy suffer with them.

She is indeed free now but it's so hard still to think I will never be able to hold and snuggle with her again.

I wish my other piggies were as affectionate, but they aren't quite like she was. All amazing and gorgeous in their own ways of course, but my neck will feel alot colder now :(

I'm so very sorry to hear you have lost Pootle. She would have felt comforted in your arms as she passed to the bridge. Let the tears flow... The loss of a pet runs so very deep and its something only other animal lovers could truly understand. Pootle will be safely at Rainbow Bridge now and can watch over you both. Run free at the bridge sweet Pootle and know that you will be sadly missed.
