I'm Just Going To Get This Over With



Marcel's gone.  He had a third bladder stone attack over the weekend and this time couldn't fight it.  He was one of mine and Hank's favorite sheep.

Oh, my girl! You've had a tough summer/fall. I wish I could do more than just tell you how much I want to hug you.

Oh no! I just want to scream at the Universe -- stop, stop, STOP. Enough already. I'm so very sorry, Sara. My heart is breaking, again, for you all.

aarond said...

I am so sorry to hear this. Sometimes I wish I didn't love my pets so much.

Sheepmom said...

I'm so sorry you lost him, and so young. He had a great life with you and you did everything humanly possible for him. There are some things we just can't fix. I'm glad he was in a home where everyone loved him.

Ditto what amyfibre said. This streak of losses is heartbreaking.

I'm sorry my post sounds cold. It's not meant to...but I just don't know what else to say anymore.

Maureen said...

Oh Sara, not cold at all... I don't think I could bear it. You dont deserve such heartbreak one after another. Know that there are many who mourn with you... I just don't know what else I can say except you're in my thoughts. Take care.

Dear Sara. You don't sound cold. You sound beaten down and heart broken. We all wish we could fix this for you, but can only remind you that we are thinking of you and mourning with you.

You are a good shepherd - that means you've given your sheep the best of everything. That is all any of us can do for our animal friends.

I hope that this is the end of the troubles, I'll pray for that.

So sorry, again, for this news.

So sorry Sara, I was hoping that when I saw Marcel's picture in your posts that he was getting better. Love the picture of him with Hank. Your post does not sound cold, I know you have had a hard year critter wise. Hoping you are out of harms way with all the storm and rains in the east. Take care. We will all miss Marcel.

Michelle said...

Still here; still heartbroken with you....

small farm girl said...

Well crap.

I need orange said...

Oh no. Not another loss. My heart is breaking for you.

Marcel was one of my favorites, too.

Thank you for sharing him with us.

I am so sorry.

Renee McCausey said...

So sorry. I know how hard losing those favorites can be.

Alice said...

You kept your composure, Sara. How admirable of you to do so with the busy event of the week-end that was supposed to be joyous with family and friends. While Hug-A Sheep -Day is for the living, those sheep and animals that have passed get the hugs from our hearts and memories.
Take satisfaction that the love you show them is contagious and celebrated all over the world. Marcel would be proud that you let the day go on as a happy one.
{{{hugs}}}

I'm gonna tell Mom! said...

Oh dear. Oh no. I am so sad for you. Just terribly, terribly sad. I think you and I just need to kiss this year goodbye!

CathyD. said...

Oh no Sara, I can't believe this.
You don't sound cold, you sound numb. And that is completely understandable. Even I feel numb, it's just too much to absorb. I am so very, very sorry for you and Tim, and for Hank and all the others. You know I'd hug you all if I could, but I doubt if even that would help. Hoping all the love from your blogging friends gives you some comfort.

Marcy said...

Heartbreaking! As Maureen said above, we mourn with you.

Lori Skoog said...

Sara, I like what Alice said and a big ditto. You have really been tested this year and I want you to know that we all think you have been a great Mom to all your animals. So sorry.

Gloria19 said...

So sorry yet again. It's just more than any one person should have to deal with. Thank you so much for sharing Marcel with us in your blog. He was special.

Benita said...

Wow! It's been rough down there for you. Marcel so close after Handy. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I am so sorry.

YarnKettle said...

You don't sound cold, you sound lost. I'm sorry for your loss.

threecollie said...

I am SO sorry, what a sad time for you!

C-ingspots said...

Oh no...I'm so very sorry. I would feel heartbroken and bereft had I gone through so much too. Please know that everyone here sends you love, prayers and an end to so much pain.

melanie said...

So very, very sorry.

Michelle said...

So very sorry to hear about this.

Damn it. That sucks. :( I'm so sorry. (huge hug)

Thinking about you. He was a cool sheep with a very cool name.

Bee Lady said...

I am so sorry to hear this. And i've had computer problems and apparently missed a previous post. You have my sympathy. We lost Winston a couple of weeks ago so I know just how you feel.

I too am sorry. What an awful disease.

sheepsclothing said...

Oh Sara. I'm so sorry.

Nadine Dobeneck said...

I am very sorry for your loss. That is the only bad part of loving your fur friends when they pass on it hurts. Just got to think that you gave him a great home with lots of love and his life was good.

♥ Brigitte ♥ said...

I´m so sorry :(

MarmePurl said...

Ugh. Sara. So Very, very sorry.
There's a lot of love down this comment line. I so hope you can feel it...if you can feel anything after all this loss.

Eleanor P said...

I'm so very sorry--my heart is with you. No matter what, don't ever stop loving them like you do! I have my arms around you and holding on fiercely tight. You are very loved by people and animals alike.

Marion from Hamburg said...

Dear Sara, I am so very very sorry! It is too sad and I hope this series of losses has come to an end now. It's definitely more than enough! I'm thinking of you!

Ed said...

Marcel was one fantastic sheep, I'll miss him..

Anonymous said...

Sara, I have been reading your blog for such a short time. I am so sad for you and Hank. I know what it is like to lose a friend or a pet. All I can say is that you have so many people who care for you and are willing to share their concern for your loss. No other sheep can take Marcel's place, but maybe another will come along and add to his joy in your life. I'll be thinking and praying for you.

kbdoolin said...

There are no words...to say I'm sorry sounds so lame but I can't think of anything else to say...I'm so very sorry.

Tammy said...

So very sorry. I was afraid this is what your post would say when I read the title. Dang it.

Tammy

Dreaming said...

Poor Marcel - Poor you. So sad. (((Hugs)))

Kim said...

So sorry, Sara. :(

The Odyssey Farm said...

I'm so sorry, Sara. Enough already. Hang in there, your other kids need you.

Susan said...

I know shineola happens, but enough already. You and Marcel sure fought it as best as you could. I am very sorry, Sara. Love to you and Hank (and to Marcel, wherever he is, dear boy.)

Mickie said...

I just got here and I am so sorry to read this. It never gets easy, does it. They get right into our hearts and own our souls. I wish I could do more than send you love and heart. Just like everyone else said - this is a crappy deal. If it isn't too forward, I send you hugs. Doesn't do a dang bit of good but hopefully makes you feel a bit less alone.
