Default Our beloved Minnie, the sweetest guinea pig

Less than two weeks after her second birthday, our beloved guinea pig, Minnie, passed away yesterday. It is with a heavy heart and teary eyes that I write this and remember her the way that she was...happy, active, loving and extremely vocal. Our once wheek filled home is now silent. Minnie lived a happy full two years with us and will forever bring joy to my heart.

Yesterday morning started like any other, I fed all three guinea pigs and cleaned their cage. Minnie was feisty as always and was getting in my way like she does every day...oh how I wish she was in my way this morning. We had gone out for the day and came back in the late afternoon. I prepared the guinea pigs' veggie dinner and brought it to them. Rocky and Jasmine ran over and started eating. As I turned to leave the room I realized that Minnie hadn't come out to the food. I came back and found her on her side unable to move and hardly breathing. I called my husband and we rushed to her and removed her from the cage trying to figure out what was wrong. Less than 30 minutes later she died in my husband's arms. I hope she knows how much she was loved and I am glad that she did not die alone. She has left a hole in our hearts that just cannot be filled.

Rest in peace baby girl, we will miss you terribly.

Val, I'm so sorry for your loss. I know how much you and your husband love Minnie. Take comfort knowing that Minnie had a wonderful life with you, and she passed surrounded with lots of love.

I'm so sorry for your loss, Val. I know it's so hard when we lose our little furry friends. She sounds like a total sweetheart who had a wonderful life and was so very loved. RIP little Minnie. xx

Thank you all for your kind words, the last 24 hours have been very hard on us. We expected a lot more years with her but are thankful for the little time we did have to share with her in our lives. We are definitely better off having loved and lost her than never having loved her at all. I do also take comfort in knowing she did not die alone but held on until we were with her and could say our good-byes.
