Sorrowful Crabby Monday...Remembering Oceana





Hello, Blogville Darlings.   We crabby girls, Beachnut and Shelldon must announce that our beloved Oceana has crossed the rainbow bridge.    Oh, we are so sorrowful.    We wish we knew what happened.   She had been buried for a few months and we all felt she was simply molting.   However, this was not the case and while I, Beachnut was digging a new hidey hole the other day, I found our darling.   She was gone.

Please help us remember some of our favorite moments with her.



Oceana joined our family on 4-29-13.   She was so very gorgeous and we adored her immediately!   Her shell was lovely and look at those colorful long leggies.





She was definitely the adventurous sort.





Of course, she brought a sense of glamor and grace and femininity to us
We remember our post on 9-4-13 as we prepared for a date!    Goodness, we knew nothing about makeup and fashion and style before Oceana.   She set us straight and we have never been the same.   POL    





She was also very creative!    On 10-30-13 our darling Madi had a ghost story event and our Oceana won a prize. 












So, friends, it is with very heavy crabby hearts that we say goodbye to our lovely Oceana.   We're sure she is enjoying a stroll along a heavenly beach and enjoying the sunshine on her shell.


Ciao and Little Pinches,
Beachnut and Shelldon




From The Hands:   We have no idea what happened to Oceana.   She had been buried for quite a while, but that is not unusual if a hermit crab is molting.   Before that, she seemed fine, but it is certainly hard to tell with the girls.   We feel very badly that we have lost her.    Beachnut happened to dig her up...maybe she knew her friend was gone or maybe she found her by chance.    She immediately moved into Oceana's empty shell.    Beachnut and Oceana had been close friends and were often seen sitting cuddled up together in the crabitat.   Hopefully the other two girls will have long and happy lives with us.

Oh no Sarge we are so sorry to read about Oceana crossing over to the rainbow bridge. She was truly beautiful outside and inside. Very funny and very creative for sure she won the hands a snuggly warm scarf.

Her shell was very colorful. We didn't know that Beachnut was her bestie. How nice that she was able to move into Oceana's shell.

Sarge please give THE HANDS a gentle lick from us today.
Run free little pincher..you will be missed.
Hugs madi your bfff

Oh no, we are so incredibly saddened to hear this. More sad that we haven't been around to give her a little kiss or get one of her pinches lately. Beachnut and Shelldon, I'm always here (if not always present) if you need a nice snout to rest on. I am mourning along with you. xoxo

So sorry about dear Oceana. What a character she was. It seems that she lives on in Beechnut (or should that be vice versa?) in a more tangible fashion than is usual in these circumstances.
Toodle pip!

RIP Oceana.

Sweet William The Scot said...

Lee says it kind of sounds like us. We could go to the bridge and it might take a month before people would find us. Just like we drifted away and no one noticed right away. Oceana I hope you have a wonderful beach in crab heaven.
Thanks for being a friend
Sweet William The Scot

Ruby said...

Oh noes. OMD/OMC I am so sorry to hear this. She sure had a style all her own that I really admired. I hope you have as good of a Habitat over the Bridge, as the HANDS gave you here....

Kisses,
Ruby ♥♥
