One of my 12 year old's guinea pigs died unexpectedly Friday. Murray was a 5 year old tri-color that we have had since he was abandoned in an apartment in a nearby town. My daughter took it like a trooper and we held a very nice service to which my husband added, "Murray, may there never be another guinea pig or small animal to take your place. Amen." :Wink:

It's so hard to watch kids deal with losing a pet. Hugs to your daughter, she did a wonderful thing giving Murray a happy life while she had him. I second your husband's prayer, when our last fish died, I threw out the tank.

Erica handled the death very well. But she was sad that he died alone without knowing his time of death. This of course led to a heartfelt discussion that I will always treasure with my most compassionate child.

I was the only one who caught the meaning behind my husband's prayer, so as everyone added their "Amen" my lip began to tremble as I stiffled a chuckle.

At that, Erica turned to me and said, "Don't cry Mom. Murray was just a guinea pig, you know."
