The link above is to the last pictures taken yesterday before Lenny went to the vet for the last time.
We have been struggling with his condition for most of the fall. We did what any animal loving persons could do for him, but he just got worse and kept losing weight. For as long as he was happy in most of his life and not wasting away, we were willing to keep medicating him.
Lenny and his brother Squiggy were the cutest little brown guinea pigs I had ever seen. Poor guys were probably from an in-bred family and wound up having lots of problems. Come February they both would have been 3 and they spent almost the whole time with me.
They were buried together - as I had Squiggy's ashes- in the flower section of Tom's parents garden. May they Rest in Peace together.
