Rivendell Fondlewife :*(

Post by Zoundz on Sat Mar 22, 2014 1:32 am

Really gutted to announce the passing of the lovely Fondle last night :*( I am heartbroken. Fondle was a really special girl to me, and to others who knew her too. I hardly know how to write this, as I am feeling so upset about her.

We collected Fondle at Bradford 2013, she was about 8 weeks old then, which puts her at roughly 16 months now Sad not at all old enough to have left us - but these things happen. She'd been healthy all her life, until picking up a respiratory infection recently. It didn't seem serious at all, and we treated her and she seemed fine... but then yesterday, she was gone Sad I guess it must have hit her harder than we thought Sad

She left us with a lovely legacy though. She and Benden Oddbod gave us a lovely litter of 5 last year, and we kept Oddsock, Oddfellow and Bracegirdle. Grace and Eoghan has Cinnabun and Sassafras, who they've kindly allowed us to have back for litters... so hopefully, Fondle's line will continue... I'm just so sorry she's gone :*(

Thank you again Ann, for another lovely Rivendell rat... I loved her to bits, and she will be missed very much.

Run free beautiful girl.









With Oddbod...




For her - being a Rivendell rat - another Simon And Garfunkel song...

Flowers Never Bend With The Rainfall:

Through the corridors of sleep
Past the shadows dark and deep
My mind dances and leaps in confusion.
I don't know what is real,
I can't touch what I feel
And I hide behind the shield of my illusion.

So I'll continue to continue to pretend
My life will never end,
And flowers never bend
With the rainfall.

The mirror on my wall
Casts an image dark and small
But I'm not sure at all it's my reflection.
I am blinded by the light
Of God and truth and right
And I wander in the night without direction.

So I'll continue to continue to pretend
My life will never end,
And flowers never bend
With the rainfall.

It's no matter if you're born
To play the King or pawn
For the line is thinly drawn 'tween joy and sorrow,
So my fantasy
Becomes reality,
And I must be what I must be and face tomorrow.

So I'll continue to continue to pretend
My life will never end,
And flowers never bend
With the rainfall.

xx

Bye Fondle. She was sweeter than cinnamon and twice as frisky
Run free with your Oddbod

I can't say how sorry I was to see this  Sad She was such a gorgeous girl and on the one occasion where I got to meet her it was clear she was a special girl - and also clear you fell in love at first sight  Love 

The pics if her with Oddbod are so sweet  Love and it's so nice they had gorgeous babies to continue their line.
