Just for the record: Andy is the one who logged on and blogged this. I don't mind, just thought I'd mention it. Andy had to take him to vet and have him put down this morning. Ferret Cancer. So sad.

Was it pronounce Ma-lone-ee? I used to call David Stinkey Maloney. Why? I don't know.

Jeannett Gibson said...

No, it was Malone (as in Karl Malone the basketball player), but we used to call him Maloney Baloney.

Yes, it was miserable, way harder than I ever thought it would be for a ferret, of all things. I sat there and held him until he stopped breathing, poor guy. I cried the whole time, and Jeannett left me to deal with it solo because she's a wuss.

Okay that is SO SAD! I'm really sorry! My kids always loved looking at your ferrets. He will be missed.

Peggy said...

Oh Andy and Jeannett, I am so sorry about Malone. You did the most loving thing--holding him until he was gone--I am proud of you. It is so sad when we lose our animals--they are so much apart of us.

Love you both,
Aunt Peggy

i'm so sorry. i didn't even know you had a ferret. it is so hard to put an animal down. that's one of the only times i've seen my dad cry.

wow, you had a ferret? huh. i thought they were illegal pets?

anyway, i'm sorry! i hate when pets die. i want another pet someday, but the first thing i think about is how hard it is when the pet dies, and i don't want to go through that again!
