We lost our sweet little Bunny last month. She passed away peacefully during the night. We found her in Baby Girl's closet in the morning.
Funny thing, she had her routine, and she never came into my bedroom when we went to bed. But the night that she died, she came into the bathroom and just "talked and talked" to me. I think she was saying "good-bye"!
We had to make Baby Girl understand that Bunny sought out a peaceful, safe, comfortable place to lay down for the last time. The kids are both at an age where they really understand this loss, and there were tears for several days.
Hard to get used to not seeing Bunny on my bed everyday when I come home.
Here's to you, Bunny! Thank you for 17 years of love and companionship. May you run free in heaven with all the other much-loved pets that have gone before you!
