Hello I'm Kristen, this is my first entry so it's not as good as everyone else's, yet.

By now you might have heard of Rudy's passing, it was one and a half hours ago and my voice still sounds raw and scratchy from crying. I'm really not much of a farmer or an outside person, but I loved this chick. I guess that's what a week of caring for an animal leads to: absolute adoration. As much as it hurts now, I am still so thankful that Rudy hatched to us and gave us that week of being totally, comepletely, almost ridiculously happy. I miss the little one so much and even now my eyes are fogging up. She didn't give up the fight though, she just fought so hard for so long there was no fight left in her, and that's okay. She did so well and I'm so proud of her for holding on this long. It took me an hour to finish writing her a letter and I know that I was just stalling because I didn't want to acually acknowledge that she was gone.

Gonna miss you, Little One,
                              Kristen ♥


  1. Kristen I am sooo sorry! I wish I was there so I could give you a hug! I am sure Rudy felt the love you gave her, and had a happy little life.

  2. Kristen, I'm so sorry for your loss. I've been in your position before and I know how horrible it is. When it gets to be too much, just remember those times you were ridiculously happy with Rudy. She may not have had a long life, but you have her a better life than many other animals who live much longer.
