Leigh was my oldest glider. She was 12 years old. Her name was Leigh and she was my sweet heart. Without her, I dont know who will help my new glider get used to their new home. She acted as a foster mother for all of my other gliders and I don't know what I am going to do without her. She was the first glider I ever got. I remember saving two years of birthday and christmas money to get her (I got her when I was 11 and she was 2.) She was my little baby girl. =)We bonded right away and for years I spoiled her rotten. I miss her so much already. She passed away from old age and I knew she would of soon, she started to slow down on her paces. Was sleeping more and eating less but was still very healthy when I brought her to the vet. When she would try to get inside her little sleeping house, only her head and front arms would make it in and she would stop for some breath. I would have to reach in and plop the rest of her body in so she could sleep. This morning I took her out and she passed away right in my arms. Soon her feet and little nose turned purple and I was crying. I still feel a lot of pain and I want to cry some more but if I do, my sides will hurt more than they already do and my eyes will puff up a lot more also. :*( I am SO sad!

Your story is sad. Gliders really are special creatures. I dread the day I have to face what you are going through right now. My thoughts and prayers are with you tonight.

I am so sorry about your loss. At least she died of old age and not of anything else. That is the way we should all go, of old age. She knew she was loved, and you got many years of love back from her. I'm sure the rest of your babies will miss her as well. Take good care of the rest of your babies. My heart goes out to you! *hug*

The only thing I can muster is sorry and my deepest sympathies. The fact that she lived to a ripe old age of 12 is a testament to the love and care you have given her. You should be proud of your diligent care. I have seen many stories posted here where the gliders die at an early age. You were more fortunate than many glider owners.<BR>You should take solace in the fact, that you gave her the best possible life a glider could wish to have. You were a true friend to her and her to you. Now you will be friends forever! She will always be there in your fondest memories. I thank you for the care you have given her and this sets the bar a couple of notches higher for your fellow glider owners. I pray my gliders have just as long and healthy life as your glider had. May she rest in peace!<BR> John (Rocky & Adrienne)

Just want to send my feelings, it is hard to let those we love go. The memory's are good and last with us a life time. Leigh will be remembered by all of us here at glider central. It shows that you now how to take care of them, they need you and people like you. So I encourage you to never leave this site, cause you are one of the strongholds that we the new members and old need.<P>------------------<BR>David, Dody, and gliders

I am so sorry. I think we all know that you have improved the lives of gliders, and that is all you can do. <BR> I have to say 12 years is a very very long time, its obvious that you glider was loved and very well taken care of.<BR> Again I am very sorry, I cant even imagine your pain, but this is not the end as long as you let your glider live in your heart and memories, and continue to share your love with others.

I am so sorry...i can't even begin to imagine what you're going through. I've only had my gliders a little over a year, and i don't know what i would do if anything happened to them...you'll be in my prayers, and if you need to talk, you can email me any time.

It seems to me that Leigh may just be the longest-lived glider in the U.S. And it appears that you've had her long before any of us ever heard of gliders...Just curious...How did you take such good care of her without the help & advice of people that frequent this board? How did you learn about diet, and all the other info needed to care for her, especially at age ll...Most of us would be completely lost without this board...She sounds like a very, very special friend, both to you and other gliders...Again, so sorry for your loss...<P> []http://www.sugarglider.net/ubb/heart.gif[/] []http://www.sugarglider.net/ubb/images/icons/blush.gif[/]'s Sassie & Cassie

I am so very sad to hear about your sweet, beautiful little sugie Leigh. I cannot begin to feel the pain you must feel, but I still cry over your great loss. I know Leigh must have loved you so very much, as you loved her, and been so very fortunate to have you to care for her. Her precious spirit will shine eternally through you, the other people who have known her sweet heart, and all the other sugies she touched. She is a beautiful light that will never be dimmed.

I am so sorry to hear about Leigh. []images/icons/frown.gif" border="0[/] You did right by her, as anyone can see from her age. Just remember what wonderful times you had together and how much better your lives were for having known each other. My deepest sympathies.

I was asked:
How did you take such good care of her without the help & advice of people that frequent this board? How did you learn about diet, and all the other info needed to care for her, especially at age ll...Most of us would be completely lost without this board?<p>My reply:
I spent a lot of time with animals when I was younger and when I first saw a glider I went up to the owner and asked her about them. She was actually a breeder and when I saw her clan I fell in love righ away with Leigh, who was only a couple days oop. When I finally got her, the breeder was always there for me to ask questions and she even gave many print outs with suggestions if bonding isn't working and what kinds of food to give and not give. Times to feed and much more. She even helped me get a cage and set it up after my parents and her became good friends. She was actually one of the good breeders who actually cared for the animals.<p>She sadly doesn't breed anymore and I haven't spoken to her in a couple years but I wish I were able to pick up another glider from her. When I found out about this board, I was surprised to see that everyone here takes care of their glides just like I do and so I knew they were well cared for and loved so I desided I would stay just incase I need some help (which I often do) or just find a cute story to post and also to put up a memorial for a special friend.

I lost Arrow in November of 2000 from a hypoglycemic seisure (low blood sugar). He was only a year and a half old but I know I gave him the best years of his life and that he was very happy. Right now though, he's on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge waiting for all the other gliders who pass so that he can play with them. So, I know Leigh is there now to play with him and show him the love of an older adult, which is neat! All I know I can do, is think of all the memories that he produced with me on all his happy antics. Just do the same and I'm glad that Leigh was able to live such a long and happy Life!! []images/icons/smile.gif" border="0[/] Thanks for sharing your story!!!!<p>Love, Tessa~~~~~~~~~ <img src="graemlins/heartpump.gif" border="0" alt="heart" /><p>[ 01-09-2002: Message edited by: Tessa ]</p>
