Country Life… and Death
Posted By Smockity Frocks On September 26, 2012 @ 6:40 am In Country Living | 12 Comments
The thing about country life is that there is also the other side of life. Death.
Since moving to the country, it seems that we have seen more than our share of death of beloved pets. We have mourned with our children over a pet rabbit , a mama cat , and a bottle fed baby goat .
And now, late at night, while trying to medicate a sick goat, we had to endure tears as we helplessly watched him die. Our 17 year old, Madison , bought and paid for him with her own money, and had planned to show him in the upcoming 4-H stock show. She was holding him as he died.
Goodbye, Leonardo. You will be missed.
