JellyBean used to fall asleep on my chest and make sweet baby noises! She loved her Mommy and Daddy so much. We miss her beyond words!
I had a special song just for her. JellyBean would instantly lay down and fall asleep. I sang this to her before she passed away.
JellyBean Girl, my JellyBean Girl She’s so sweet, she’s so wonderful She’s my JellyBean, JellyBean Girl JellyBean Girl, my JellyBean Girl
Goodbye, my sweet JellyBean! Thank you for being such an amazing friend and companion. I will see you on the other side!
June 10, 2014: Please say a prayer for us and our JellyBean Girl. Please pray she gets better (highly unlikely) goes on her own or we know without a doubt when it is time for us to intervene.
JellyBean has been in horrible pain for a year with a lame leg. She is 14 and that is pretty old for a goat. I feel terrible about her pain. I have done everything humanly possible to help her with special diets and supplements, as well as pain medications. I have talked to my vet and she agreed that as long as she has a will to live, eats and gets out, we should let her. But she is taking a turn. Today, she went out in the grass, wouldn’t eat much and was there all day. I went down and sat with her several times and she talked to me, looked in my eyes and I told her what a great goat she has been and how much I love her. Wayne had to help her back into her house when he got home. She has always been so kind, gentle and sweet. She was my “lap goat.” She melts in my arms and falls asleep when I sing to her. She has been an amazing friend. It’s all expected, but never easy.
April 22, 2014. My poor JellyBean Girl has been dealing with severe arthritis in her leg. Now I had to have the vet over to drain an abscess. She left a drain in it. Ewwweee!! Her bedding needs to be clean, so my ANGEL, Bree Villyard came over to clean out her house! What would I do without her?? Thank you, Bree!! This picture is from when JB was about a year old. She is now 14. That is pretty old for a goat. My vet says she has had one live till she was 16. If it weren’t for her horrible leg, I would bet she would break a world record! Please say a prayer for her, because she has been in horrible pain. But my vet agrees that she still has a lot of fight in her. She is amazing! Yet, if she doesn’t go on her own, the time will come all too soon for me to make a decision. I will miss this sweet baby!
