tammy lost her beloved sam…
Sam died shortly before 4:00 this afternoon. It was quick and peaceful.
He had a good day. Spent most of it sleeping on my lap.
I had him for almost 8 years but I do believe this last year when he was sick was his happiest. Due to the illness he consistently lost weight, quite a bit weight actually.
The weight loss made him feel better, become more active and he loved to play with Ripley.
He never presented as sick and if it weren’t for the blood work I would never have known.
I want to thank you for letting me bring him home. He was a gift. Ripley and I will miss him terribly. I do find some comfort knowing that it was his
time. After days of going back and forth (he was great one day, not so great the next, he bounced back and forth) I knew as I drove home that it was
the right decision. At the vet there was no argument from him, no struggle he went gently.
nugget passed away suddenly during the night without any warning. he hasn’t been ill, he was in great physical shape..we are unsure what happened, he just died without us knowing anything was wrong. sadie will be lonely without nugget, we will move her in with the other chickens in a day or so.
rest in peace nugget, you weren’t the super nicest rooster but that’s ok, you were you and sadie really liked you.
