WSU Dawley of SITH
Unknown - October 9 2008
Dawley, aka Stuart Little, joins the other 3 "almost" SITH ratties, Baby Blue, from a rescue litter Colette took in, CWR Lahela, and OFR Oliver, all of whom, for one reason or another, didn't quite make it home. Thanks to Colette and Michelle, I do have photos of Blue and Lahela. I never put them up on my site because it was just too painful at the time, but maybe I will some day. Sadly, I never even had a photo of Oliver, and I assumed the same would be true of Dawley... and then the following email arrived from his new quarantine home....
This is Allie, holding Dawley in a little
sling she made for him
(Allie is the daughter of Little Mischief Rescue's marvelous Margaret)
It seems that Allie carried him around and snuggled
with him for much of the last 5 hours of his life
He got to know that he was loved and he learned to like it.
Margaret and Allie, you could not possibly have given me a more precious gift.
Rest in peace little man.
What's in a name?
Sprague and Dawley, what else are you going
to name a pair of lab rats?
