I was only thinking the other day how nice it was that we'd had about a  week 
of gpdd's without any of our little pals passing to The Bridge. But then  
here we are, with news of brave little Kozmo's passing, plus the obituary to  
Muttley from his still-bereft slave.
Marsha, I've posted brief condolences in your Blinkz guestbook, which I had  
not discovered before. Muttley looked gorgeous, and as I've said, reminds me 
of  my favourite Dolly Mixture, Soulage.
Kacee, you say one should not have favourites, but I have always argued  that 
if one considers ones pets to be people, which I think all gpdd-ers do,  then 
one is bound to like some more than others. I think the piggies also like  
some humans more than others. I think it's okay to have favourites, so long as  
all of them know they are loved and all get the same amount of treats and 
Kozmo sounds like a little fighter, and you did all you could for her. I  
have always maintained that the bond between slave and pig strengthens if the  
slave is involved with administering some kind of special care over a period of  
time. It is always so hard to say good-bye, but I believe it is even harder 
when  one has been involved with a long fight to postpone that piggie's 
My heart goes out to both of you, and all others who are coping with sick  
piggies or recent bereavements. May it bring you a shred of comfort to know that 
 far across the ocean in France, a heart has been touched by your stories and 
 there is someone who shares your sense of loss.
"The animal  shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete 
than ours they  move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the 
senses we have lost or  never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. 
They are not brethren,  they are not underlings; they are other nations, caught 
with ourselves in the  net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour 
and travail of the  earth".
