Goodbye, Cinnamon

We lost Cinnamon the guinea pig last night. The boys were upset, of course, but recognized that he's at least 5 years old, which is pretty old for a small animal.

Some of you might remember the day we got him and his friend, Rusty. Cinnamon always was a gutsy little guy. Right after I snapped this picture, he nibbled on Thor's nose. Poor Thor just looked like someone hurt his feelings. He's always kindly to smaller creatures (virtually all of us).

And when the boys took Cinnamon and Rusty outside to graze, Thor sat right near them, to make sure no one disturbed his boys and their little critters.

Remember when Dan gave Cinnamon a carrot? Thor had hurt feelings and had to have a carrot, too. It made us all laugh. Cinnamon calmly kept munching.
RIP, wee Cinnamon. I hope you find lots of sweet, green grass across the Rainbow Bridge.

There's a crowd waiting at the bridge to meet Cinnamon. My Bentley will watch over him.

I'm so sorry!
5 years is a great age for guinea pigs. He had a good life with you.
The first Picture is very beautiful. Thor is a good boy!

I'm so sorry! That was a lovely tribute, and I agree with Violett - that last picture says it all. Cinnamon looks like he's smiling!

It's always sad to loose a pet - seems as though they can all become family members.

Oh, Thor, we're so sorry for your loss. We're sure Cinnamon loved his life with you and the boys and we know he will be missed. We're equally sure he's in G.P. heaven now, having a rollicking good time.

oh that is sad - I am sorry.. nice tribute... I am currently building up some effort to post about our cat Mio. We had to have him put down last week... he was 10 years old, more and more beaten up ( by other cats) and also had a broken leg... so sad, I cried so hard at the vet.. allthough I know it was for the best...
