Thanking everyone for their prayers and purrs for Pedro..sadly we were notified this morning that Alison was going to have to help him on his journey to the bridge.. We tried so hard and we really hoped he would pull through but he was a senior boy and may have been down too long with the cold and his old bones. He was with his Donkey family his Mum Alison and he was treated as we all deserve with respect and dignity and love. Hubby has taken this so badly..when you work so hard and try to have the best outcome you can feel like you have somehow failed. I have chosen the photo below and i will get this printed and framed and when Alison has had time to grieve i will give it to her. Pedro bought neighbours who had never met together..he had all of us talking to him in soothing words and rubbing his ears and telling him what a good boy he was..we tried we really did but he just did not have it in him..he had a lovely life and was living with a wonderful family..he will be sadly missed..i am so sad i only spent those few hours with him..but now i am able to meet his donkey friends and Alisons horse..we have been bought together over our love of animals and Pedro was the catalyst. Hubby is doubting his ability to take part in these animal rescues..a few members simply cannot cope..road trauma and human casualties they deal with all the time ..but these ones get some of the toughest men and women..i hope he still does..as having a person with such love snd respect for animals is what is needed.. Run free sweet Pedro i will never forget the time i was privileged to spend with you..
