Bongo Fury Safe As Milk

Post by Zoundz on Wed Dec 03, 2014 11:25 pm

My gorgeous Russian Silver boy has gone to the bridge - way too young, taken by pneumonia, a particularly nasty form of Strep that was resistant to baytril - so our treatment wasn't helping him, and we had hardly any time to try anything else Sad

I will miss him, he was a sparky, friendly, special guy... and had never been sick in his life until this last few days. He was a gorgeous lad, and very fortunately for us, managed to sire a litter with our Endeavour girl Dolly. I am so grateful that he was responsible for keeping our Russian line alive <3 he will always be remembered for that, as much as his endearing personality.

Everyone knew Milky, he was the rat that lay on his back having his ears scritched in the Pet Island show! He was always a floppy, soppy kind of a rat, only too happy to cuddle up for ages and jut lie on whoever was holding him :*) I will miss that so much... Sad

Run free my wonderful boy - and please, think of Dachau Sad he misses you so much.





and - the song he was named after...

Safe As Milk - Captain Beefheart:

Well my cigarette died when I washed my face
Dropped some drops in an ashtray hit a wrong place
Woman at my blinds to see spiders spinning lines
Its a safe as milk it’s a safe as milk
I never heard it put quite that way
The shape I’m in is a gone a way
They called a day they called a day
Yesterday’s paper headlines approach rain gutter teasing rusty cat sneezing
Soppin wet hammer dusty and wheezing
Lusty alley whining trashcan blues
Children running after rainbows stocking poor
Gracious ladies nylon hanging on to line
Jumping onto leg looking mighty fine

Sorrows lollipop lands stick-broken on a dark carnival ground
Pop up toaster cracklin
Aluminium rhythm and sound
Ev’ry day pencil lazy and sharp
The icebox inside looking like a harp
E-lectric bulb been out for years
Freezer fumes feed the gas tears
Cheese in the corner with a mile long beard
Bacon blue bread dog eared (repeat twice)

I may be hungry but I sure ain’t weird

xx

Sad awful to lose them to pneumonia, but at least if it was quick he didn't suffer much - wish I could have met him
