RIP, My Koosh

A huge part of my stressful week was that I lost my hedgehog to Wobbly Hedgehog Syndrome last October 12, 2012. :( 

After about 10 days of being paralyzed, 5 of which he was in the pet hospital. A few minutes before I left school to pick him up, he had collapsed in his cage. :(

Wobbly hedgehog syndrome is a genetic disease that can't be cured :( slowly, the hedgehog's hind legs get paralyzed and it eventually leads to the rest of the body. Isn't that so sad? He couldn't even curl up anymore here. I have an old post of Koosh over here, where he was younger and could still curl up into a ball. :(

This is Koosh resting on the grass, because his hind legs couldn't support him to stand properly anymore.

I was lucky enough to find a photographer who could take me and Koosh at the last minute, before I sent him to the vet. She's amazing! Her name is Chase Chua, I met her last summer through common friends. I later on learned in her blog entry that she was apprehensive to shoot us, but really I'm so thankful it happened.

She has the photography style that I love. The creamy background and dreamy colors.

 This is actually a glimpse of what Koosh used to look like when he could stand.

Poor baby resting on my hand :(

I can't even watermark this. Whenever I see the second photo, I want to cry :(

He looks really cute here too, but he was having a really hard time balancing so I was holding up his behind for this picture. :(

I gave Chase a little token, just to say thank you for being able to shoot me. I drew up that little hedgehog quickly with my markers before doing my makeup.

Inside was a vintage camera. Hope she liked it!

After the shoot, I served a good old house favorite, pizza pan de sal. It's just simple Filipino bread with tomato sauce and cheese on top. Yum!

'Til the next post,
