Unfortunately, my husband and I have returned home without our little Penny.

I wish I could say it was because she was being hospitalized, but she is not. She is no longer with us. :o(

I am so broken hearted - I can't stop crying and my husband cried as well. We only had her 3 days - the vet we saw tonight told us a few things:

1) She appeared to be a runt and was probably pulled from her mommy too soon. (Tonight,she was estimated to be about 6 to 7 wks OOP, which is actually younger than what we were told by the breeder AND she only weighed a measley 16g!!) On top of that, 2)the funny noises we had started to hear today with her breathing, was advanced pneumonia. She was malnourished as well, although she was eating great and drinking here at our house. (vet said she wasn't properly cared for as a joey and the best 3 days of her life were spent with us)

Anyway, due to the advancement of her pneumonia, the Dr told us her prognosis was bleak and the ultimate result would be death, as she had too many things that weren't going in her favor. The Dr was even sure that with hospitalization at their facility, she still wouldn't beat it.

We opted to have her euthanized - it was either euth or take her home and watch her die of respiratory failure and there is NO way I wanted our little baby to suffer in the least bit or to come home and find her dead in her cage with her sister. We were there for 2 hrs and spent some more time with her before giving her to the vet and going over ANY other possibilities. (to which there really were none...)

We are home and I am still crying. The vet was wonderful - very caring and knowledgeable. She of course told us, to give ourselves about a week but to be looking for a companion for Zoey (Penny's sister) as it is best to always havemore than one suggie. We know this and plan to get another female companion for Zoey but our little Penny will be SO VERY missed...and will NEVER be forgotten!! In the meantime, poor Zoey seems a little confused as to where her buddy was - she knows we went to the vet with her (Zoey went too) but now we're back home and Penny isn't.

Thank you all for your prayers and good thoughts - I'm sure Penny is carrying them up with her to suggie heaven...

RIP Penny...our little love bug...we will miss you...

I am so sorry for your loss. You are right though the best days of her life you gave her and you should be proud of that! I am sure she loved you so much. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. I hope you have great luck in finding a new friend for Zoey I am sure she is sad too.

It is amazing how someone so small and here for such a short time can leave such a big hole in your heart.

It is never an easy choice to let them go hug2

You did the right thing - you helped your beloved Penny cross the bridge, even when your heart was breaking. That's so hard - and such a blessing for her. She will be waiting at the bridge for you, and in the meantime, she has lots of other suggies to play with. I'm so sorry for your loss. hug2

cry I am so sorry to hear about your sweet little girl. I agree, 3 days of knowing love will be three days of pure light in her sweet little soul. Giving her a new life free of pain and suffering is a true sign of deep care and compassion.
Many prayers to you and your husband. Rest in peace sweet little Penny....

If we never loved, then maybe we would never feel pain. Love anyway. It's worth it.
