Been a very emotional day, had to make the decision to allow my gorgeous Tommy to be put to sleep. He's always been the snuggliest of our piggies but his health has not been the best recently, he's had a few eye infections, he hurt his back and had been losing weight. Looks like he decided today that enough was enough, was scary to hold him limp in my arms, the vet did everything they could but it was kinder to say good bye than to put his little body though anymore.

Sleep tight little one, Tinker and Tiny are a little lost without you but I'll look after them xx

I am so sorry for your loss; you have done absolutely the right thing and have been the most loving of piggy mums that Tommy could have found right to the end. He will always live on in your heart; he looks like his nest in there is pretty large and filled with precious memories!
