Nyar lived only a little over 2 years. She fought a long battle with several illnesses, every day of her short life. She was seperated, often for long periods of time, from her mother Gudrun. During these periods of time, Nyar's illness spiked to dangerous levals. However, when Nyar recovered, albeit for short periods of time, they were reunited, and did very well together.
Nyar's short life ended on April 1, 1996, a few weeks after her mother also died. After suffering for over 2 years, Nyar's small body could no longer handle the aliments brought on by her weakend condition. So she finally gave in. Those of us who believe in heaven like to imagine Gudrun, Nyar, & Gudrun's stillborn calf swimming freely in open waters, and playing together happily.
Thank you to Shannon for the photos of Nyar!
