Binx was the first glider in the US to have his anal glands removed due to repeated infection/abscess. He was a mill bred glider, and almost 8 years old.

I posted a while back about his first removal of a fatty tumor on his chest. I apologize for not being here-I work 2 full time jobs and don't get online much any more. Will attempt to get his final pics, post surgical (2nd surgery, & post mortem) up tomorrow...

Binx went to the rainbow bridge in my hands on May 20, 2010 from complications of the recurrence of his tumor. The vet thinks it metastasized prior to the second removal, and invaded his liver. He was jaundiced, but not nearly as bad as when Chronos died in my hands-other organs were likely affected as well.

He passed the most peacefully of all 11 gliders I have seen off to the Bridge..not one of mine so far (knock on wood) has gone without me-my biggest fear is that one will. frown

He was one of the gliders, along with Roxy, Troi, Hush, and Teal'c, who went with my Ex when we split-I was babysitting that night due to his condition. He was sitting on me about 20 min...took a VERY deep breath, and that was it, he was gone. I knew Binx from the time he was about 5 months OOP, although he didn't come to live with me until he was about 2 years old or so. He was from the same mill breeder as my Riker, Flying Fur Ranch.

Thanks to Binx, we knew the validity and possible issues associated with removal of the anal glands in a glider, along with the fact they can do fine-better than repeated or sustained infection. He was an awesome and loving little guy-and will be badly missed.

I don't get online much, as I work 2 full time jobs now, but Facebook is the best place if anyone needs to contact me for anything-Jen Bailey, Kamas, UT.

This makes 3 to the bridge in just over 6 months.

This is for Binx:

Don't Fear the Reaper-Blue Oyster Cult

All our times have come
Here but now they're gone
Seasons don't fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain..we can be like they are
Come on baby...don't fear the reaper
Baby take my hand...don't fear the reaper
We'll be able to fly...don't fear the reaper
Baby I'm your man...

la, la la, la, la
la, la la, la, la

Valentine is done
Here but now they're gone
Romeo and Juliet...
are together in eternity...Romeo and Juliet
40,000 men and women everyday...Like Romeo and Juliet
40,000 men and women everyday...Redefine happiness
Another 40,000 come everyday...We can be like they are
Come on baby...don't fear the reaper
Baby take my hand...don't fear the reaper
We'll be able to fly...don't fear the reaper
Baby I'm your man...

la, la la, la, la
la, la la, la, la

Love of two is one
Here but now they're gone
Came the last night of sadness
And it was clear he couldn't go on
Then the door was opened and the wind appeared
The candles blew and then disappeared
The curtains flew and then he appeared...saying don't be afraid
Come on baby...and he had no fear
And he ran to him...then they started to fly
They looked backward and said goodbye...he had become like they are
he had taken his hand...he had become like they are
Come on baby...don't fear the reaper

Edit: His time of death was 6:50 pm.

My Lyah's time of death was 6:50 pm
December 11, 2007. What is it about that time of night?

Thank you, Binx, for EVERYTHING...for loving Jen as much as you did, for teaching vets AND glider slaves what we needed to know about anal glands, and for just being YOU! We will miss you, but we also would not deny you the chance to transfer to your next destination. Go freely and know that we'll take care of your mommy until the day comes when she joins you. cry

Jen, I spoke to you after this happened and you know how very sorry I am about Binx's passing. I still believe that the little guy held on until he was in his Momma's hands before he let go and crossed the bridge. Even tho he was technically your ex's glider, he still loved you and wanted to be with you in his last moments. Many ((((((HUGS))))) to you.
