We found out about the kidney failure about 3 months ago when she got terribly ill. We were lucky to have had another 3 months with her.
She had taken a turn for the great just before Thanksgiving and had even begun to put on some of the weight she had lost and had regained her mischievous ways and game playing.
3 days ago she took ill again. This time it was hard and fast.
She let me know late last night she was in pain. I comforted her as best as I could with the intention of taking her in to her vet this morning and letting her go.
She died at home in my arms this morning about 8:30 .. we never got to the vet.
I may need to have a little time out as I am also dealing with my husband being in the hospital about 3 hours away from here.
Please say a prayer for Taffy and for my husband.

Here ya go ...
Fun Facts About The Rhinoceros
There are five different species of rhinoceros. Three are from southern Asia and two are from Africa. They are the Black Rhinoceros, White Rhinoceros, Indian Rhinoceros, Javan Rhinoceros and Sumatran Rhinoceros. Despite their name, White Rhinoceros are actually gray.
The name rhinoceros comes from the Greek words rhino (nose) and ceros (horn) and is often shortened to rhino.
White rhinoceros are the second largest land mammal. The white rhino is the largest rhino species and can weigh over 7700 lb and is the largest land mammal after the elephant which can grow to be 15,000 lb.
Rhinos can grow to over 6 feet tall and more than 11 feet in length.
Rhinos are speed machines. They can run up to 30 – 40 miles per hour; the fastest human can run 15 miles an hour, so finding a tree to climb is a better strategy than trying to outrun a rhino!
Rhinos have poor eyesight, but very well-developed senses of smell and hearing. A rhino has difficulty detecting someone standing only a hundred feet away if the individual remains still. However, if the person makes the faintest sound or the rhino is able to smell the person, it will easily detect him, even at much greater distances. The olfactory portion is the largest area of the rhino’s brain.
Rhinoceros horns are made from a protein called keratin, the same substance that fingernails and hair are made of. The rhino’s horn is not bone and is not attached to its skull; it is also not hollow like elephant tusks. It is actually a compacted mass of hairs that continues to grow throughout the animal’s lifetime, just like our own hair and nails. The longest known on a black rhino was 4 feet 9 inches long (they average about 20 inches in length on the black rhino).
In spite of the massive size Rhinoceros are not carnivorous, they are herbivores.
Rhino pregnancies last for 15 - 16 months. The average size of a newborn Rhino is between 80 and 125 lbs! Mother rhinos are very nurturing. The young stay with them until they are approximately 3 years old.
A group of rhinoceros is called a ‘herd’ or a ‘crash’.
