    I am sorry to inform yall that Dude, the baby yellow bellied slider with pneumonia, passed away on February 11. I had found a veterinarian that was 45 minutes away and I had an appointment scheduled on February 13. I did take my other baby to the vet for a check up and she did not see anything wrong with him. I would like to thank @Randi for helping me. I am sorry for updating you all a week later, I just didn't feel like talking about it then.
    Thank you

    R.I.P Dude

    It's always sad to hear about turtles passing away, especially babies... I'm sorry for your loss. I'm sure Dude is very grateful to you for taking care of him all this time. Take care.

    I'm really sorry for your loss. :( I was going to message you to ask how it was going yesterday. It has been a long and tough journey for you. I think it's best if you just keep this lil one for now. He has been a little trooper. You've done all you could for the others, and please remain strong. Stay positive. My thoughts are with you. :<3::tort:
    I understand the feelings surrounding things like this. This day exactly, Feb 22nd, 2014, (it fell on a Saturday though, I believe) I had to euthanize my four year old female leopard gecko. Her reproductive organs had burst. It's never easy, no matter what species it is and no matter what the circumstances. Once again, I'm sorry for your loss.

    Rest In Peace, Dude. :(:tort::<3:

    Sorry to hear about this. Dude, had a wonderful caring parent! Unfortunately it's so difficult for babies to get over illnesses sometimes. Sending you thoughts of comfort. :<3:
