We received some sad news today... my friend Glynis
called to say just after losing her Jonah, she went
outside and found Leona had passed away. Necropsy
confirmed that Jonah had a tumor while Leona had
peritonitis. Neither related, neither contagious...
it was just their time... so close together...
I went to Kentucky in 2005 and Glynis, Eric and I
rescued these three beautiful girls from a pond in a
high traffic area. Since they already had Jonah and
Fiona, they decided to name Sharona and Leona
similarly. They called them all: "The Onahs."
Fiona, Jonah and Leona have now passed... but they
lived wonderful, happy and safe lives with their
Wishing the best to Glynis & Eric and their
remaining flock: Joseph, Sharona, Rosie, Dixie,
Donnie, Elam, Taloo, Red, Lilly and Gabby.
