Somehow my all my gliders got out yesterday. Maybe I didn't close the door good enough?

Anyway. My daughter closed the dog in the glider room for a few minutes yesterday and heard crashing. She went in to find our little Apple in the dogs mouth and all the gliders running around. Apple seemed okay for few hours but went downhill quickly.

She died inside my bra around 1 am last night.

We all feel so horrible.

I learned how quickly something like that can happen, even when we think we've covered all our tracks with cage doors, latches, etc. Believe me, I feel your pain. I've been there, not with one of my gliders, but with another pet once. It was the most horrible thing in the world. I am so sorry for your loss. Try not to beat yourself up too much, I've also been reminded that normally our houses hold a bunch of predators and a bunch of prey, and when left alone, natural instincts kick in like mad and it's a matter of them figuring out which one is which. I'm so sorry. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. *HUGZ*

How awful! My thoughts are with you and your family. Give the rest of your gliders extra hugs (and don't forget your daughter - she probably feels worse than you!)

I'm so sorry for your loss and hope the other gliders all are safe.

Not to scare you but now that your dog has had a glider in his or hers mouth please keep the dog away from your gliders from here on out. Once a dog has a taste of any animal they will desire this taste and wil ltry to get your other gliders.

I have personally seen this many times over growing up on a farm and rasing livestock of all kinds and having dogs as well. So Please no matter at this point how much you think you know your dog it will try to get to the others. So for your Gliders safety never let the dog near them from this point on. Not even under guidance the dog will always be quicker than you.

I'm sorry again for your loss and I only tell you this to prevent loosing anymore.

I know what you are saying. We didn't mean for the gliders and dog to be in the same room. I wasn't home and my 10 year-old put the dog in the room because she had to for a few minutes. We had no idea they were out of the cage.

But yeah, I know what you are saying.

Honestly, I'm starting to wonder if I should keep them.

I dont know about the past. But dont let this event keep you from the gliders. I know i dont even have a glider yet and i am already fearing the day she dies (hopefully a decade plus away)

Keeping them shouldn't be a problem unless you feel there's a chance the dog can get to them at any time. If you can keep the dog away on a perm basis there should be no issues. My prayers go out to you and your family.

Stacey - don't let yourself get too freaked out and start second guessing your ability to care for them. Give it some time, think it out. The first suggestion I thought of was do you have a closet that you could keep them in? Carmella's cage is in a closet in our spare room (pffft who am I kidding it's HER room now!) and we originally put her in there so she can have darkness during the day. It also keeps the smell down and now a days I like the thought of her being in there b/c I keep the door closed whenever we're not home so even if she DOES get out she's just in the closet. I don't have other pets but it seems like maybe a setup like this would help you feel like they were safer??

:hugs: I'm so sorry I just lost my Tony yesterday and I know how hard it can be...

cry I am SO sorry for your loss. This is one of my biggest fears with my little ones. I already know that this will be thier fate if they run across the dog someday. He doesn't like the sounds they make and his instinct is to kill rats. shakehead

Thank you so much everyone. It really is comforting. We know it isn't Mika's fault. It's hard not to be mad at the dog, but we know he was just being a dog.

We picked up a pretty box and a pot of pansies. We will bury her in a few.

Thanks again guys.

I am very sorry for your loss! I had a cat that got in my room when I was younger and killed my teddybear hamster, I was devasted! It happens though, you learn from it, and you go on. Your other gliders need you to, and thankfully you have them smile Don't give up now!

I'm sorry for your loss as well. Just give it some time and I think you'll feel your confidence return about keeping gliders. I went through the same thing when Jeepers died last summer. At that time, I just knew I would never get another glider and would just keep Peepers as long as God decided to give us. But of course Peeps needed a buddy so I got her one and well, life goes on. dunno

I guess what I'm saying is just "hang in there".

I'm so sorry for your loss, it's so hard to have a beloved pet pass away, but when it's a tragic death it's so much harder. cry

Please be really careful with letting your dog even near the glider cages from this point on. My dog has learned how to open up bedroom doors by working the doorknobs until they wiggle loose. I had another dog that could open up any gate we tried to enclose her in, even if we put a rope or wire tie through the lock. It had to be actually locked with a combination lock or a key lock to keep her inside. Dogs love to chew, and I don't imagine it would take very long for one to get into a glider cage if it really wanted to. frown

Your poor daughter! She must be so traumatized by it all. cry
