NorthWapiti's Buckingham - aka Hambone

NorthWapiti's Buckingham - aka Hambone
May 2, 2010 - August 5, 2010

During the night of August 4th Hambone quietly passed away due to an undetected congenital birth defect.

He used his 3 months well - playing, running, having a lot of fun and making a lot of friends.

Gaily I lived as ease and nature taught,
And spent my little life without a thought,
And am amazed that Death, that tyrant grim,
Should think of me, who never thought of him.
~René Francois Regnier

This is the price we pay for loving those whose lives are shorter than ours, at best. Still a bargain! Godspeed, little Hambone.
