Well, as if losing one straw in the last week and having my big guy go naked in the saltwater pool wasn't enough, now my poor Bleu has passed on. He hadn't been ill, but at the same time, it wasn't really a surprise. He was the last of three ruggies that I purchased back in late Sept/early Oct. It must have been a rough shipment for them, because Titan and Big Red (who has a thread in here, too) passed also under similar conditions....seemed fine and adjusted then just stopped, like a switch had been turned off. I'm sure he's in a happy place now.
