Thanks Barbara, Roger came home shortly after I put on this post, so he knows. We're just so sad, it was so quick and unexpected. She didn't seem sick yesterday at all, until last night when she just threw up, then had trouble breathing. Our little Issy, was so young, it's still such a shock. I'm going to have to stop crying, I've got to get to work. I'll post something tonight.

Deb & Roger
and yes Barbara, I'm so thankful for Sweetie, Lonzo, Rubio and Leo; they're helping me keep my sanity.

We love you, sweet little Issy and we'll always miss you. Now you're with Angel and Dino and all the other beardies that have passed; on Rainbow Bridge. Now you don't have any pain and you're at peace, with lots of mountains to climb and lots of adventures to have. We'll always love you and miss you Issy, my sweet baby.
Mommy and Daddy

Deb, my heart's aching right along with you and Roger. I can't believe Issy is gone :cry:

May Issy rest in eternal peace and find Dino and Angel over at the Rainbow Bridge.

Hi Barbara,

I did make it to work, a bit late, but I'm here. My head feels like it's full of cotton candy. Latest is we may be adopting a dog. Roger went to the shelter after seeing an ad. She's a pitbull, black, 10 yrs old, in good shape & she fell in love with Roger (that doesn't surprise me, he has a knack with dogs). So I go tomorrow am, if she likes me, too, I think Roger said the fee is $50. I'll let you know. I've never had a dog so this will be a new experience. She won't take Issy's place, but at least Roger will stop bugging me about getting a dog. She's a small pitbull, much smaller than Deja next door. I'll let you know. Time to get back on the phone. Thanks for your good wishes.

I'm soo sorry about Izzy. I can't help wondering if her previous (before she was with you) life and her laying infertile eggs made her weaker. I do know that they can be ill and us not know it.

Thanks everyone for your good wishes. We still have no idea why Issy got so sick so suddenly. She did lay 2 clutches of eggs, but thanks to Tracie's advice in giving our girls liquid calcium according to their weight after laying, but Sweetie and Issy recovered very well, so we don't think it's that. Issy threw up some greens around supper time yesterday. Roger didn't think anything of it, as she seemed to be ok afterwards. He cuddled her as he normally does and put her to bed. It was only when I got home & realized she was really having trouble breathing that we both realized she was really sick. It was only a couple of hours after she was put to bed that I got home, so it was a great shock to find her having so much trouble breathing. We kept our eye on her (not getting alot of sleep) and we were sure she would be ok until we got her to the vet, but she passed away at 7a & the vet office opened at 9:30. She did have some loose poops, we were planning to get her to the vet this Friday to check for parasites. She seemed fine all weekend and yesterday, too, ate well, pooped in the bath, ran around as she usually does. It's been such a shock, 3 beardies in 2 months. I check & re-checked Sweetie & the boys to make sure they were ok. We still don't know what happened, our sweet little Issy. I'll be putting together a memorial when I can think straight.

As for our new family member, she's not ours yet. She's a 10 yr old female pitbull named Sahara, she's black with a white puff on her chest. I get to meet her tomorrow and if that meeting goes well, she's ours. Roger has always wanted a dog, he especially likes pitbulls, he's always found they've been misunderstood. We've been babysitting Deja, our neighbours dog, here and there for over a year & she's a real sweetheart. Roger's really fallen for her, so what could I do? I've never had a dog, being a cat person, but I love Deja, too, so I guess there's a little dog person inside me. We go to the rescue tomorrow (this is our town rescue), get approved and when we pay the fee on Friday, she'll be ours, my first dog. Should be interesting.

I've always loved all our dragons, it's amazing how they can nestle in your heart, and if it werent for taking care of Sweetie, Lonzo, Leo and Rubio, I think I would have broken down completely. What was funny is Sweetie, who's tank is beside Issy, kept looking over and was very quiet this am, as if she knew Issy was having trouble. Even Lonzo and Leo were quiet this morning, not doing their usual bobbing and giving me comforting looks every time I'd look at them. They are all amazing and we're going to miss Issy so much.

I keep going over and over what either of us could have done differently and we honestly can't think what we could have done. I'm just sorry she couldn't let us know she was having a problem before it got so bad.

Thanks again everyone for your kind words,
Deb and Roger.

I'm so sorry to hear about your baby. I have no idea how you must feel. Just know that she lived the best life any beardie could live. She'll be with you forever.

If you ever need to talk, we're hear for you!

Oh, Deb, I just can't believe it! You and Roger must be beside yourselves. You guys have been thru a very rough couple of months and I can't imagine how you are feeling. I will always remember Issy as the pic of her waving is my all-time favorite beardie pic. She was certainly a beautiful girl and lucky to have you n Roger to dote on her.

(((Big hugs n kisses to you)))
