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.
Of course, she brought a sense of glamor and grace and femininity to us
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.
