Hi everyone.
I sought out your group for the first time last night. I am in 
Ohio..having a pet skunk was a childhood dream. When I finally found my 
little was wonderful!
My much loved little boy Snookie passed after almost 7 years of bringing 
me such affection and joy..and a light has just gone out of my life.  I 
can't put the grief into better words at the moment, although it hasn't 
even been 24 hours.
I am 51..and find myself alternately laughing at the memories and 
sobbing the next moment.
I went online to find somewhere where explanation would not be necessary 
and people would just understand. I could surround myself with people 
and I'd still see that silly little face. I had several weeks to prepare 
during his decline..he knew he was loved..and his last moments were 
spent raising his little head and nose to those who loved him to be 
stroked and talked to before the eyes closed. It could not have been 
more peaceful and yet..right just hurts. Thank you so much for
