Very touching ..
HOW can people be so heartless, so unaware?
Glad she had a year in which she discovered that not all two-footed are as cruel

Ahhhh so truly sorry to read this as Berry certainly deserved so much better than she got, yet so happy she experienced a nice life in her last year. And bless Spinner, Sushi & Potato Chip that they have such loving people looking after them

Forever rest in peace, Berry....

Why don't people take their pets for help and give them to a sanctuary if they are no longer able to care for them.
Tortoises live very long if you get one for a pet, you will have a lifelong responsibility for it.

So sad to see that despite all their care, it didn't help, but at least the last year of Berry's life HAD to be better than the prior ones.

At least she was happy at the end of her life. She did find a little happy peace at the finale of her life. I dont understand how the original owner didn't realize there was a problem. A total moron would know there was a reason for that baby to not be growing!!!! God people make me sick.

This story is again a testimonial of ignorance of the owner who had berry on the wrong diet. People acquire pets without being informed about their care. OR they are aware but can't afford to care for the pet properly or worse - can't be bothered.

Thank you Cher.

My heart goes out to little Berry! I'm glad her last days were with Susan, Marshall, and YoYo, who at least cared for her!
Rest in Peace little Berry!!
