i didn't want to post this yesterday, i was just too freaking sad.
i remember when poppy came here several years ago...an emaciated little bag of bones, abandoned up on a mountain during a time of terrible storms.
we all felt so very sorry for her, she had been thru a horrible time.
poppy started off in the house, she was just too frail to send out to the barns.
and poppy liked being a house pig so when she was ready we moved her over to the mp building to be their resident princess.
sometimes folks would tell me tall tales of poppy chasing them around the room trying to bite them but i knew this was not true.
they were misunderstanding her overatures of pig pal-ness..she just wanted to share a snack or two!
eventually folks got to know her better (or maybe she did settle down in her enthusiasm) and everyone fell in love.
poppy was so special to all of us, she was a gift that enriched our lives.
a few weeks ago poppy developed an infection. we hit her hard with multiple antibiotics but she just couldn't recover. yesterday the vets advised it was time to let her go.
poppy passed peacefully surrounded by love.
we will so miss this special girl, she was a great friend to us.
rest in peace our sweet little pig...i hope ellie, petunia and all of the others were waiting to welcome you home.
