SWEET GOLDIE - RIP

We had to help Goldie into the Bunny-beyond on Friday afternoon.  Goldie has had cataracts for quite awhile and has been fully blind for a few weeks, although for the most part she knew her way around her living areas and Benji.  But in the past few days she began to be listless, not eat much, and lost control of her bodily functions.  It was very hard and sad to just keep her clean and comfortable.  In the long run it is for the very best, for now just incredibly sad and empty. 

We got Goldie and her brother Bluie, as babies, 8 1/2 years and more ago.  American fuzzy lops.  Bluie had a congenital issue, and though we gave him almost daily anti-biotic shots and periodic hydration treatments, he lived well for several years. 

There will never be another Goldie.

RG and BL, there is an ineffable peace across the Bridge, but it is also filled with bunnyness. Goldie is probably regaling her old and new friends with descriptions of her HOR haircuts. Do not be sad. A life of giving and receiving, receiving and giving great gifts, a life lived in an embrace of love, you all proving yourselves the kindest and most dutiful and Goldie thus allowed to be her bunniest is not to be mourned, and yet we do. Peace be with you and all of Goldie's bunny comrades at HOR.

brandi said...

She is forever beautiful and healthy now. She can see clearly, she has no more pain. She is with Bluie and all the other HOR rabbits that have passed into the next life. Nose rubs to Benji and you and BL, too.

Cris and Crafts said...

I'm so sorry. I only have one bunny and for less then a year now, but I can't imagine what it would be like to lose her. I really believe that Goldie is in a better face, with all of her vision and binking away with bunny friends. R.I.P.

So sorry to hear the news. So hard to make that decision, but the kindest thing you could do under the circumstances. She was a beautiful bunny and I'm sure she was grateful everyday that she could call you house her home.

Lalis said...

Oh, RG... I just barely saw this post and I have tears in my eyes. I am so sorry for loss...

Every bunny that leaves us takes a big piece of our heart with them.
