SAVANNAH HAS DIED ....

Our special, special lady died Saturday evening, January 7. She was 9 years old.

She was clearly failing a very few days prior and we did all we could to keep her comfortable and just loved her and loved her .... and now we miss her so much.
This is the first picture we have of Savannah. We got her in the Spring of 2004. She was pregnant and was going to the Shoofly Farm summer camp to have babies as part of the kids experience there. She came back and graced our lives here ever since.

I am so very, very sorry for your loss. I know right now that your hearts are breaking. We just lost our little Ziggy this past Friday on January 6, so we know the pain that you are feeling right now. We wish that we could take the hurt away as it aches so much...

Oh, no, precious Savannah! I am so glad, though, that she had you to make her comfortable and loved and not frightened in her last hours!

I am so sorry.

We will all miss sweet Savannah. She was such a lucky girl to have had a home with you and the other buns. It's a shame nature didn't design rabbits to stay here with us longer.

Binky free, spotty girl!

She always accepted her pellets & veggies very graciously, and with much entusiasm!

Good night, Savannah - please give a little nudge to Buddy, Baxter, and Lil' Jasper for us...

Would Rabbits Guy or Bunny Lady object to using the lovely Savannah's picture for this Monday Mantra?

I'm so sad to hear this! Sweet Savannah is now over the Rainbow Bridge throwing binkies like a kit in an open space.
My hear goes out to you, RG and the rest of the house. I know what is like to lose a beloved furry one.

I read your blog post everyday. I saw Savannah's photos when she was alive... Although I didn't really see your real bunny, I also felt sad to heard the news. :'(

Binky free, Savannah. I hope you will be happy at Rainbow Bridge.

Just made a contribution to our local House Rabbit Society rescue shelter in Savannah's memory and encourage other A Houseful of Rabbits blog fans to do the same.

Karen M said...

So sorry for the loss of your beautiful Savannah. She was trulyt a special bun.

Lisa said...

I am so, so sorry for your loss. This is such heartbreaking news but I know you know the silver lining here is that Savannah got to spend nearly 8 wonderful years in the ideal home. I'll never forget her dewlap or her spots. Binky free as the Queen of the Bridge, Regal Savannah.

It's shaping up to be a rough year already.

Duchess's Slave said...

I am so,so sorry to hear this,we will definitely miss seeing her sweet face. It hurts so much when you lose one of your bunnies. She had such a wonderful home, at least she knew she was loved when she passed.
Give all the buns a nose rub from us.
Binky free Savannah...
