I am new to the forum but not to beardies and reading this thread brings tears to my eyes thinking of our companions who love us unconditionally with forever innocence and trust in their hearts. Their eyes being a gateway to their souls and their unique personalities radiating. We did not choose them as pets but they chose us as their forever slaves. They were never meant to be taken from us but we can all say weve given them the best damn days, months, or years of our lives to see these guys be vibrant youthful happy nd just plain lovable.
We buried Brimstone yesterday after noon after fighting for her and with her for 3 days. We adopted the little babe from Petco when we ran across her cage on our way to pick up some extra crickets. It was her lucky day being as we breed dubias and crickets ourselves.. we just so happened to have ran out of our adult crickets.. anyway she was missing a tail nd very emaciated. We knew we had to bring her home right there. We got home nd she ate a cricket and fell asleep. The next day she had gotten worse and thats when we found this glorious site and reached out. Though we tried everything we could have possibly done from beginning to end all we succeeded at was giving her the love she needed to finally be at peace so she could rest her head in bliss nd fall asleep on her forever cloud.
Though it stings to have lost her we are at peace knowing we tried and shes probably the happiest shes ever been. My heart goes out to all that have lost their beardedchildren. For they fill a special place in our hearts that only beardedlovers would understand. And even with older children still alive or new babies to come they will always be there filling that hole with a gleam of light licking your nose saying thank you reminding you you will always be loved by their beardedface.
my beloved spike passed on Thursday night due to a bacterial infection that he just could beat this time. Spike was a rescue and his previous owner improperly feed him and gave him to much calcium causing him to have gout, he was parasite free but prone to bacterial infections. I have a awesome exotic pet vet who we saw on Halloween and gave him antibiotics but it didn't work this time. he was about 5yrs old. he is greatly missed.
