Little Davie has passed away. He took his bottle last night, had a good snuggle with me and when I put him back on his bed my kitten Tiger snuggled up to him and started rubbing and licking him like he knew Davie needed his family around him. I rubbed his head and he fell asleep. He only woke up once all night and I gave him a drink and he snuggled down with Tiger. Around 3am he just took his last breath. I am so very blessed to have had Davie come into my life if only for just a short time. I am also blessed to have each of you. Your prayers and good thoughts have been a blessing and strength to me. I truly believe your prayers are what helped Davie die with peace, love and dignity. Your prayers helped me from having to make the decision of taking Davie's life. I prayed too. I prayed last night he would pass in his sleep peacefully. God answered our prayers. I am so upset that Davie had to die and though I know he is just a goat, he was my baby. I feel like I have lost a member of my family. I am going to bury Davie in a corner of the backyard where he enjoyed sitting and watching the birds. Thank you again for all your prayers, thoughts, posts, and emails. They truly helped Davie have a peaceful death. I ask that you keep having good thoughts and prayers for Miss Diva. That she will not get CAE. From the very depth of my heart I thank each of you for being with and giving me strength through Davie's journey.

Peggy, I found this:

‘Do-it-yourself’ Franciscan Animal Blessing

For all animals:

Blessed are you, Lord God,
maker of all living creatures.
On the fifth and sixth days of creation,
you called forth fish in the sea,
birds in the air and animals on the land.
You inspired St. Francis to call all animals his brothers and sisters.
We ask you to bless Ms*diva.
By the power of your love,
enable her to live according to your plan.
May we always praise you
for all your beauty in creation.
Blessed are you, Lord our God, in all your creatures! Amen.

Yesterday was my first time here, and the 'update' about Davie was the first thing I read.

It's a sad way to 'meet' you but I couldn't just pass by without commenting... I'm sorry to hear Davie didn't make it. I also wanted you know that that I have no idea how you named him, but looking at his photo I was struck by how 'perfect' his name was. Omgoodness. That is a Davie if I've ever seen one! He was lucky to have you in his short life and he was loved... and really, that's what is important. He knew he was loved.

Awww Peggy

I'm so sorry.

I have tears rolling down my cheeks and I dare someone to say that a goat isn't worth tears!

I often think that animals are smarter and more caring than most adults.

They bring so much to our lives by making us laugh and wanting our love and always being there for us.

Things happen and it stinks but Davie brought love and joy to you in his short time there.

I will pray for Miss Diva too. Hopefully she will not pick up the illness.

Hugs

Poor Little Davey...I have tears in my eyes while I type to you Peggy because I know how much you love all of your animals just like we love ours here at our home. I am glad that God saw fit to take him home and you did not have to make that awful decision.
Take care

There is no such thing as 'just' a goat or any other animal. They are the most precious beings this nasty world will ever know. I just posted on yesterdays blog and now I find this and am in tears. Life is so unfair, animals are so innocent yet they seem to suffer the most at the hands of humans. Just be at peace knowing you did all you could for him in his short but precious life.

Oh dear Peggy, how very sad and heartwrenching. Poor Davie. I've prayed for a beloved pet to pass quickly when they were suffering, too, and my prayers were answered. The Lord is merciful. I will pray for Miss Diva to be protected from the CAE.
