Bongo Fury Orange Crayola Patches

Post by Zoundz on Wed Mar 05, 2014 10:34 pm

Lovely Patch left us yesterday. She was never really ill a day in her life, though was very noisy, persistent nasal stuff - nothing would ever clear it, so we stopped treating, and she lived a very happy, active life - always in good condition - and I honestly thought she was younger than she actually was. I was really upset yesterday as I thought she was only about 20 months - turns out she'd have been two in a week or so <3

She was a wonderful, mad, feisty madam - and I will miss her terribly! She was a bit of a ringleader in her cage group - her and her three daughters, and the four of them would be out of the door the second it was open. It was like a party trick, everyone who visits likes to see my 4 mad girls go pinging out through the door whenever it's opened! Her three daughters seem quite subdued now though Sad they're not young themselves, and I'm somewhat gutted that we never continued that line, just through never getting around to it Sad it means I've essentially lost the Agouti in our Russians, and the Russian Dove Agoutis too... Sad I think they're too old to try now.

Anyway - Patch was a gem, and we loved her very much :*( and I am so grateful to her for giving me her lovely litter - they have been fab too <3

Run free gorgeous girl - go and find Ducky - together again at last...

And - what could be more suited to her than Neil Young's Heart Of Gold?

"Heart Of Gold"

I want to live,
I want to give
I've been a miner
for a heart of gold.
It's these expressions
I never give
That keep me searching
for a heart of gold
And I'm getting old.
Keeps me searching
for a heart of gold
And I'm getting old.

I've been to Hollywood
I've been to Redwood
I crossed the ocean
for a heart of gold
I've been in my mind,
it's such a fine line
That keeps me searching
for a heart of gold
And I'm getting old.
Keeps me searching
for a heart of gold
And I'm getting old.

Keep me searching
for a heart of gold
You keep me searching
for a heart of gold
And I'm growing old.
I've been a miner
for a heart of gold.





On the left - the one on the right is her daughter Dusty:


And with her daughter Cherry:

Thanks guys.

No Darren, I think not Sad I'm not saying no, but it's not likely, I've all but lost the agouti in my russians, I may one day in the future (if I don't lose my Russians altogether) add a cinnamon in and see how we go.
