Farewell, Beloved Peaches

Happy Peaches

It is with a heavy heart that I write to share that Peaches has crossed over to Rainbow Bridge. Our feisty, stubborn little pig bravely fought malocclusion for over three months.

From an early age she made clear her love of food - especially romaine. There was a period of several weeks where baby Peaches wouldn't quit wheeking until she was given her favorite veggies. Not green lettuce, red lettuce, Boston lettuce, or any other type of greens. It had to be romaine or the wheeking wouldn't stop. Thankfully her enthusiasm soon expanded to include other foods.

Throughout the next years she enjoyed numerous adventures, got into all sorts of piggy mischief, and spent many an afternoon lounging on her favorite cozy. Peaches was always one of the most social pigs in the herd. She greeted us faithfully every morning, waiting (albeit impatiently) for her breakfast pellets.

Mike and I are heartbroken that she is gone. We miss her dearly but are thankful that she is free from discomfort... and finally able to eat everything in sight once again.

Until we meet again, sweet Peaches.

  1. I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that your posts on your guinea pigs, and guinea pig rescue in general are incredibly important to me. We have two guinea pigs (as well as rabbits, dogs, and cats), so to hear that your GP has passed on is definitely devastating. I had commented about it on your FB page when this initially happened, but I wanted to be here as well. You are in my thoughts.

  3. I'm so sorry Alice. Try to take comfort that Peaches had a very happy, loving life with both you and Mike, and her other little furry friends. I like to picture our dearly departed in fields of dandelions and veggies, popcorning and chomping.

    Rest in peace, Peaches. May you eat an abundance of Romaine lettuce over the rainbow bridge. <3

  10. Thanks for the kind words Michelle, they mean a lot to me. I'm taking some time to get back into the swing of things but it's coming along. Hugs to you, your pigs, and the rest of your furry family.
