R.I.P Shannon

When we first got Shannon it was 2004. She was supposed to be my Christmas present but she came a little early around November 8. When I walked in her co-owner's house, I just knew that that was a new beginning of pet friendship.

When we got home Shannon went straight to my bed. I thought to myself that Shannon will be here forever because I'm not going to let anything happen to her. I guess I was wrong because 4 years later she got sick and wouldn't eat or drink a thing. We took her to the vet every day so they could give her food and water.

Then one day, April 10, 2008, at 6:00 am, around the time I get up to get ready for school, I found her laying there, not breathing. I checked for her heartbeat but there was nothing. I called my mom into the room.

When I heard her say "I'm sorry," I broke out into tears. That was the end of a great pet friendship!

So sorry to read of Shannon
by: Karen

It is so very tearful to read of your and everyone's account on this website. It takes me back to when my Honey Bunny passed away. I hope that by now, you have moved on while still keeping the memories of Shannon deeply in your heart. God bless!
