Unfortunately, our little star Alphonse closed his eyes yesterday and went across the rainbow bridge, to join so many other wonderful guineas. We miss him dearly, but we will never forget him.

In Memory of Alphonse, who slipped away suddenly on 18th January 2011.
Sweet dreams little man. Run free and pop-corn in peace.

I watched you close your eyes,
I felt you slip away,
Although you meant the world to me,
I couldn’t make you stay.
Someone saw you getting tired,
A cure, not meant to be,
They lifted you up in their arms,
They whispered “Come with me.â€
Although you departed from this life,
Your memories won’t fade away,
You took a piece of us with you,
When you left today.
Goodbye my sweet companion,
It’s time for you to run free,
But always I’ll remember you,
And the joy you gave to me.
I will be forever grateful,
To have had you in my life,
But for now my little darling,
It’s time to close your eyes.
To rid yourself of pain and fear,
Remember how we loved you dear.
Sleep with the angels, sweet one,
It’s time to rest your head.
Dream only of the nicest things,
As we lay you in your bed.
Look down from us from time to time,
Remember how you made us smile,
Even though we now feel sad,
We’ll always be your Mum and Dad.

We had to have him put to sleep in the end, the poor thing was just lay there crying in pain, I stayed with him till the end. Walking away without him was the hardest thing I ever had to do and I must have cried for so long afterwards.

We adopted 2 new pups today and they have really helped us, Patch included who really misses him

aww but at least you know you did the right thing for your baby when he needed you to, that takes a lot of love and courage, well done.

Congrats on the new ones, will look out for pics x

He was so sweet, always up for cuddles or pestering us for more food, I just thank everyone here for the support and comfort

I am sure he will (they get special treats once they go over the bridge x)...I hope he can find my georgie...well if he's into the older lady that is....I know it hurts (I only lost georgie on saturday night) but in time ...it does get better, I was lucky with georgie another week and she would have been 9, it is so much harder when they are so young, he wont be alone xx
