The Titan


There has been a group of sheep here over the years that I've considered titans.  Buddy, Woolliam, Ewen McTeagle, Jester, Marcel, Keebler, Graham Lamb...  Big in stature...and personality.  Count Chocula was The Titan.  

We've been trying to fight through a bladder stone attack for a week.  He patiently tolerated everything we tried and we tried pretty much everything.  I finally had to call it. 

I will sure miss seeing you standing in your doorway.  Thank you for one final classic picture last night.  You were a good sheep.  The bravest Titan of them all.

Oh Sara. I am so sorry. :-(

From reading your Tour de Fleece post I knew something awful was going on. :-(

Sending much sympathy.

I reiterate what I posted on Instagram. So much sorrow, so much souris for you in this suck-y year. I'm so sorry, Sara. If only I could give you more than a virtual hug. Auntie Reg, please hug Sara for all of us.

I am so sorry, Sara! What a tough year. We suffered through the same problem with bladder stones last week and had to put down my favorite sheep on Friday. A beautiful silver gray Romeldale that followed me around like a puppy. I cried and cried. Thought of you so often grieving for Early and now this.
