Another Bunny Tale

Our bunny, Henry, died today.  He was the sweetest bunny ever.  Last night we found him after he'd had a seizure and brought him to the vet. By the time we got there, he seemed to be completely normal again. I really thought the vet would have to put him to sleep!  With all of his medical problems, we never thought Henry would live 4 1/2 years! He had a good life, or so we'd like to think.

We didn't run any tests because the vet said if it was what he thought, there wouldn't be anything we could do for Henry, but he added that he might be okay.  We got him home, he ate a few carrots and seemed to be fine until he had another seizure.  He seemed to bounce back from that one, but didn't make it through the night. Joseph was able to tell him good-bye before everyone went to sleep.

We have many, many memories. From his medical adventures to daily life. We've always grown carrots and veggies in the garden for Henry (he was a spoiled bunny). He liked all the special treats. We're going to miss him.  Joseph would read to him and do school work with him and we think Henry might have learned something!   Here are a few pictures of Henry over the years.  He's now playing with St. Francis in heaven.

I'm so sorry for your loss! It's never easy to lose a family pet. I have to say I think only you would have a bunny that needed a nebulizer treatment ;) Hope your boys are doing okay with this.
