In Memory Of
Baaam-Baaam came from the same neighbor as Maaa-maaa. Baaam-Baaam was rejected by her mother when she was only a few hours old. She came to Journey's End and was bottle-fed in her early days with sheep formula. She used to sleep indoors, but soon she was old enough to live outdoors fulltime.
Baaam-Baaam seemed to go into a depression after Baaabette and Baaarney passed away. She was listless and withdrawn. When Florence arranged for Banjo to come live here, Baaam-Baaam quickly perked up. She became more friendly and started playing with her toys again. She could usually be found standing beside Banjo, or walking around with Banjo following.
One day we saw that Baaam-Baaam had become lethargic and wasn't eating, although she had eaten the day before. She was transported to a vet who treats farm animals, and he found that she had fast-growing tumors in her mouth. He felt that there was no way to cure the cancer, and she was put down the same day.
