    Oh Carol – you’re having such a horrible week. So terribly sorry to hear about Percy. Rest in peace sweet boy, no more pain for you. You did the best you could for him Carol – he wouldn’t have thanked you for prolonging his suffering. We’ll all miss him.

  • Brenda says

    Oh shit Carol; I’m so sorry to read this post. Percy was very lucky to have landed at SAINTS, and he couldn’t have been given better care, and consideration for his quality of life than what he received from you,- and the staff and volunteers in the “barnyard crew”. He was a special guy, and will be greatly missed. Big hugs all around.

    So sorry to hear this. Percy was one of the first animals I met at SAINTS on our tour and one of the reasons I wanted to volunteer. Such a kind, sweet guy with great licks. Last time when I was working there I got a great big lick in the face when cleaning out the loafing shed. I will miss him so much, not going to be the same. Big hug to you Carol, I know how much this guy meant to you and how much you are going to miss him <3
