Basch passed away this afternoon of either a serious mystery illness or a sudden combo of diseases. I did what I could, but this was just too much for him...
I got him from my boyfriend for Valentine's day.. He had a heart on his left side and was the most charming creature I've ever had the please to care for. He came up to my hand and would stay beside it, like a hug. He was carefree and lived a good life.
Basch, Ill miss you. You were my "sweet boy", and Ill miss you greeting me every time I walked by the tank. I hope I made your life happy like you made mine. Love you, Basch.
My friend Summer (and fellow enthusiast) and Steph, my friend who Basch adored and would always swim to and play with, helped me bury him. It didnt seem right to throw him away.
Its cold here, but we buried him as deep as we could in the frozen ground and found the most lovely stones we could from the lake shore. He's buried on a small hill over looking Lake Ontario, where the sun sets by a pretty tree. We found a stunning bunch of red branches and used them like flowers. It was a sad day...
RIP, Baschy <3
