This morning we lost Tula, the little tiny lamb. She was fine last night but this morning she was non responsive. Her belly was full of milk though, and felt kind of bloated. I treated her for bloat with no success. I ran her to the vet and unfortunately she died on the exam table. They felt that she had some underlying infection because she was eating well, but her digestion had shut down. I know that she was tiny and weak from the beginning, but that doesn't make it any easier to lose her.
In honour of Tula's life, I will postpone the results of the naming contest. It is not a time for celebrating today.
Run free, tiny girl. The flock of Artaius welcomes you.
