Faretheewell, Fuzzy.

I feel like I just said this about Acorn, but in case any of you missed the status post on Facebook, Fuzzy is no longer with us. I'm afraid he had a stroke or some such which led to an inability to get up and so we ended his suffering.


Atlee recovered remarkably fast asking, "So, can I get a third rabbit?" Um, no. The rabbit cage will go into storage for a few years. Truthfully? It makes me a little nervous that if I had died last December, she would have been setting Rich up on dates come January.

So long Fuzzy. You were a wonderful rabbit. I hope there are lots and lots of carrots in the Great Warren in the sky.

I feel horrible saying this, but yummmm... rabbit stew....

Oh my God. I'm a terrible person! Swipe that.

Sorry bout the bunny. And I understand about the kid asking to get a new animal. Corinne wants a dog when the cats pass away... BADLY.

I want a bunny, but my husband won't let me have one. When he was a kid, he got a little bunny named Tribble and it died because his parents weren't the kind of people who take a bunny to the vet for some antibiotics.

So when I suggest a rabbit someday my husband is all like "No! You love them and they just DIE ON YOU."

Just thought I'd share my face book status from earlier today for those of you not in the loop.

Ahem.

Gettysburg Mom is excited! Normally you only get to bury a dead rabbit once. Thanks, Greeley, for the opportunity to do it again! (Ewwwww......)

So sorry for your loss. We have a bunny named Coltrane and he's just the best. I'm sure Fuzzy will be missed.

Did you take a picture of the dis-interred Fuzzy? Because you could have made it your new logo, with the title: "Jesus is a zombie" or something. :D ha!

"Dead rabbits are dead unless God makes them alive again."

Today's secret word is: argaro

Ohhhh. So sad. I had a bunny when I was little (about to give gross details - you may want to skip this) and she died because bunnies eat their poop and flies laid eggs on her poop and she ate them and they hatched in her tummy and ate their way out. There was literally a hole in her. The second we noticed it we put her down. It was awful. My child will never have a small animal!
