Roland

We are very sad about Roland, who went over the Rainbow Bridge yesterday.  He lived in New York with Auntie Dawn and Uncle Wayne, and had many, many pigtures on Facebook, for his #WolandWednesday theme. An awful lot of them had him taking food from his daddy’s lips while standing on his daddy’s chest.  Awful is a carefully chosen word there.  I wouldn’t do it, not even from Mummy.  But it shows what a polite and trusting pig Roland was.

Sending love to Auntie Dawn and Uncle Wayne.

As you will know, Dougall had been losing weight steadily since September, and in the last month his weight had plummeted.  We could find no reason for it, other than he had stopped eating, and whether he had mouth ulcers due to an empty tummy, or had them earlier and they made his tummy empty, we don’t know.  Last night he started breathing as if he had fluid in his lungs.  This morning he had lost even more weight, and was in distress, so we helped him across the Rainbow Bridge at 11 am.  I’m sure Victor and Humphrey and all the others were waiting to welcome him.

My sweet boy. Forever loved.
