My sweet boy

It is with the deepest sadness and a broken heart that I tell you that yesterday my wonderful bunny, Petey, passed away in my arms unexpectedly. I am still in shock and really don't understand what happened. All I know is that I am totally shattered. The depth of sadness is immeasurable.

I know that many of you enjoyed seeing him from time to time, along with his girlfriend, Laurel. Laurel is lost without him. She keeps looking for him and sits waiting for him.

He was a special boy. My heart. I miss him so much.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss! When I was younger my best friend had a bunny named Petey as well, and he too passed suddenly :-(
Losing a pet is one of the hardest losses we go through in life, they give us so much and ask for little in return.
biggest hugs

I'm sorry you lost your baby. It's so hard when our pets leave us. He was lucky to have you. Thinking of you.

Pretty Things said...

I'm really sorry. Had he been sick at ALL?

I was devastated when I lost my cat. I went to the shelter to volunteer to get back on track. They have bunnies there. May not be your thing, but it did help me heal. Just a thought?

Really really sorry. No one should have to go through the loss of a friend.

There are never any words for this sort of loss. I know that time will heal but you will always remember that he hopped into a hole in your heart that you didn't know was there. May your memories bring you peace.

So very sorry for your loss Nancy. The only thing that got me through that tough period off loss was knowing how much love was shared between myself and my Whit.
I will be thinking of you.

Mermaid Glass said...

I'm so sorry about your boy. I have buns, too, and I know how sweet and loving and funny they can be. My heart goes out to Laurel, as well. She must be so lonely and lost. I can't imagine what would happen to our Violet without Maxwell.

My Life Under the Bus said...

Oh I am sooo sorry - We have a very sweet Lionhead rabbit my boys carry around in a blanket like a baby! Much love from Marshmallow to poor Laurel!

So sorry for your lose. Hurts so bad to lose a loved one. I have two very special photos in my bedroom. One is of Gracie (my Siamese cat) and one is of Skeeter (my chihuahua dog) who have passed away. Even though many years have passed, I look at their photos often and still miss them so much. They were both so special and I wish they were still with here me.

I am so sorry for the loss of your dear friend Petey.

sasha and max said...

Nancy, I feel your pain so acutely - I had tears in my eyes when I read your post on facebook. When we lost our 2 previous cats within 3 months of each other, we were so totally distraught. Time, cuddles with Laurel, and friendship can hopefully heal your poor heart. Take care. Big hugs, Vicki

Jean Hutter said...

Oh no - I am just so sorry - I am sitting here with tears in my eyes. I loved to see the bunny photos - hugs to you and Laurel - I am thinking baout you.

kelleysbeads said...

I saw this on fb and my heart just went out to you. So hard when it happens unexpectedly. As hard as it was/is, I'm glad you were holding him at the time. You were his Momma and Petey loved you immeasurably.

CrowNology said...

Oh my...I am so sorry...

Jenny said...

I've been thinking about you since I saw this yesterday. It's so hard to lose pets. They do nothing but give. I'm so sorry. I hope that soon, the grief will give way to good memories.

Ruby Mtn said it well. He died with a friend near and dear escorting him into the next. I'm sorry for the raw feelings that all brings for you here in the last.
Much love,
Stranger

Rebecca said...

I'm so, so sorry for your loss. I can only imagine how you and Laurel must be feeling; I know either of my two bunnies would be lost without the other. I will miss him here at your blog too.

Andrew Thornton said...

Hey Chica,

I'm really sorry to hear of your loss. I've been thinking about what I would say, the perfect thing to say to console you and help you through this time. But the truth is, there is nothing that can be said to wave away the pain of having apart of yourself gone.

Just know that you're in my thoughts and prayers. Remember the times you had together and be grateful for the moments you shared.

And eating copious amounts of chocolate and drinking red wine are good options too.

Linda Landig said...

I amo sorry. Our furry friends bring so much joy and comfort to our lives.

Holly Knott said...

Aww!!! I am so sorry! I know the pain. Hugs to you and his girlfriend...
