Found fudge, one of my original Squeaky Pig piggies gone to the bridge this morning. :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'

No explanation, no illness, was as bright as a button last night after veggie supper.... but this morning she didnt appear for morning veggies. Found her flat out and cold in one of the log houses. :'( :'( :'(

Again no signs of any kind of illness whatsoever! just peaceful on her side. She must have gone in her sleep of some kind of heart failure.

She was not that old in piggie years, was just over 3.

I am in shock, have never found a piggie 'gone' like that, and think it is far worse than when they have been ill, and you half expect it.

Being so young as well, and having many pigs in their golden years....again she is the last piggie I would have expected to find this way.

I am still reeling from it.

Oh sorry to hear that Deb, it must have been a real bad shock.........at least she must have gone peacefully which is better than them suffering and we have to make the decision for them.....

aw Deb I am so very sorry for the shock you got this morning :'( :'( I tend to find most of mine go this way, only a few weeks ago I lost Jasper and Evee and Romeo all with no outward signs of ill health (except a gut feeling about Jasper the night before he was too quite for my liking) I tend to think pigs hide their ill health (in their past they had to hide it from predators or they would be caught etc) and although to us they seem fine they in fact do have an illness , dont think it bad it happened this way, I myself rather this then a long drawn out illness, over the years I would say most of mine go with no apparent symptoms, :'(
just in case make sure you disenfect the cage out, 3 is my most common age and this time of year is a bad time for me I have often posted this that If they get past 3 they generally go on up to 8 but 3 is my worst age, as a lot of mine are around 3 or 4 I hate it
fudge did'nt want you to know she was ill and did the best thing went while you was'nt watching I've had pigs wait until i left a room to go over the bridge
now you are in shock your day is going to be a blur so just take your time dont rush into any decisions you need to make its an horrendous time for you sweetie but we have all been there ourselves and I just know many will be on later to try to cheer you up, God bless fudge ( my own fudge is almost 4) and chin up cry all you want, she was a special part of your life and will be badly missed

What a terrible shock it is when this happens without warning, at any age , but with younger guineas especially so.
I once had a young sow die in front of my husbands eyes at only 10 months. I'd taken the dogs out with my niece and when we came back my little guinea had gone.

Sweet dreams little Fudge x

Take care, we'll all be thinking about you Deb.

I'm so sorry deb... :'(


but while it must have been a shock for you, it is probably the nicest way for a piggy to go - without long, drawnout suffering or scary vet visits. If I go one day, I hope I go like your piggy - peaceful in my sleep.

Run free Fudge! Say hello to all my piggies at the bridge...

I'm sorry to hear Fudge has gone to the bridge Deb, she's had 3 great years with you and yes take comfort in that she died peacefully in her sleep. Run free with the others Fudge (she looked alot like my Pebbles Deb).

Take care Deb, hugs
