Default Hufflelump, May 2006 - December 30, 2011

We helped Hufflelump cross a few days ago at the ripe old age of at least 5 and half. He could have been older but we know he had at least earned the title "Sir". He was surrendered to us more than three years ago. He was completely blind but that didn't bother him at all. Although he never used a wheel, he took over our sunken living room for three hours every night and did his laps. Though he was never a cuddler, he looked forward to coming out. Although we helped him cross (he would have kept fighting forever it seemed), I'm a firm believer that he died of old age. He had slowed down a lot over the last 9 months, napped all the time. He had lost most of his teeth, and was treated for several colds and an ear infection. Unfortunately his latest cold turned to pneumonia and it was not responding to any range of antibiotics or, later, steroids. On his last two days, he was struggling to suck in air and couldn't eat. We said goodbye to Sir Huff and are hopeful that he has meet up with Po who crossed the day before him.

Love you lots and lots old man. Show them all how it is done on the other side.


Mom to Many Quilled Ones
Ella, Tiggy, Huff, Po, Kelen, Cedric, Kipper, Hector and Annabelle, you are always in our thoughts.

So sorry to hear about your little man. It is sad to see them go, even when it is for the best. He is at peace now...and I would bet still running laps at the Rainbow Bridge,

April, I'm so sorry. It's never easy losing one, but two in two days is really hard. *hugs*.

Rest easy Sir Hufflelump.
If you can't laugh at yourself, I'd be glad to do it for you.

When I'm good I'm very good, but when I'm bad I'm better.

I'm so sorry April. RIP Sir Hufflelump and Po.
Chinchillas are not potato chips. You CAN have just one.
However, three is much more fun.

So sorry, April.
Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until they speak.

I'm sorry for both your losses April. Not a very happy holiday season hedgewise.
Never argue with idiots. They will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

April, It is never easy to lose one, but to lose them so close together is certainly tough. God speed little ones.
