{The above image was taken the day before Rosie died. The goose we had recently adopted, who lives in the same part of the barn, decided to start sleeping on or near Rosie. I'm sure it was for warmth, but I like to believe, as a pure white magical creature, the goose also knew...}

It is with heavy hearts I let you know that we helped The World's Grumpiest But I Am Fine As I AM Pig, aka Rosie, onto her next journey, the day after Thanksgiving. It was a very hard decision, she was elderly, blind, weakening, had spinal issues and was more and more disoriented and I did not want her to fall or suffer in the winter. She was buried with all the beautiful gifts people sent to me to place in her grave. It is the end of an era. She was one grumpy pig, but we loved her just the way she was! You can read about her on the blog, or visit the recent photo album on the Apifera FB page.
Giving Tuesday is 11/27. Facebook is matching donations for non profits. Matching donations are first come first serve, and Facebook begins the matches at 8AM EST [5AM PCT]. The matches go quickly, so if you want to help us possibly get matching donations on Tuesday, best to get up and donate immediately at 8AM.

I will have a post up on the Apifera Facebook page on Monday night, and you can donate there Tuesday. If you don't want to donate via Facebook, you can always donate through our blog [those donations from the blog are of course not matched].

If you are an active Facebook user, you can also do your own Fundraiser for Giving Tuesday, and select any non profit you want -of course we will love it if you choose Apifera, but there are many worthy causes.
Go to Rosie's funeral, hankies required
