Default Flags at half-mast

This morning was trauma filled as i discovered that my female Ball had died. She has had health issues since i got her in September. She was the one with the serious problem shed and would'nt eat. I tried absolutely everything but it was not to be.
I still can't bring myself to bury her.
Rest in peace my little girl.

Oh no! I'm sorry Greg. That is rough.

I remember when I found Princess dead, just 30 minutes prior to her vet appt. It was a huge hit to me and broke my heart.

Just be sure to take time to mourn even if the rest of the world calls us crazy!

Oh man, that's too bad Greg. Feels awful to lose a pet. And a brand new one too! I can't believe that guy didn't give you a break on that.

So sorry Greg! Most of us have lost one of our snakes also. It is tough on all of us. She is in a better place my friend!

Sorry mate, loosing a pet is never easy and you can guarantee some one will say it's just a snake and get over it....resist the urge to push their nose out the back of their head and know that there are some people out there ( all of us for starters ) who do understand.
