Blackberry is gone


She died today. I'm just heartbroken. Rabbit GI systems are sensitive and hers was no exception. I can't begin to imagine the house without her... she was the bossy bunny glue that kept us all in line. She saved my life 6 years ago, when I was in so much pain with no hope of recovery (stupid doctors!) and she kept me laughing when all I wanted to do was cry.

She taught me that bunnies are intelligent and playful. She also taught me that you may have to learn another language to talk to someone - just because they're different doesn't mean they have nothing to say.

I know she had a superb life (three obedient cats and staff to clean her litterbox frequently) filled with binkies and general happiness. Her death was not painful. And I love that she was getting more touchable, to the point that she would jump on the couch when I was knitting and demand a massage. :) I’ll miss her so much. Already do.

We buried her at Valley Forge in a gorgeous wooded area with deer and lots of bunnies. She likes lots of room to run.

It's so hard losing a pet. They leave holes in your heart.

Mom's advice is to try and just remember all of the joy and happiness you shared with Blackberry, and not to mourn her loss, but treasure her memory. Our time with these little guys is brief, but meaningful.

And here I go, getting teary.

I didn't post anything until now because I know how hard it is to lose a family member. When I saw you the other day I was praying for you and I hope things are getting better & easier. Looking forward to next week - call me when you have a better idea of when & where
