June 23rd was and always will be a sad day for us. Our very first rescued Rabbit, Commander Bun-Bun was very sick, and passed away despite all of our efforts. We had her for a very wonderful six plus years, so we guess she wasn't a youngster, but it was still hard. She's had a problem with GI Stasis in the past a couple of times, but this time she just didn't recover no matter what we and our wonderful Vet staff tried to do. We will always remember her as a 5 pund bundle of alpha Rabbit. Whenever you went into "her" room, she would run over to you and grunt just to let you know she was the boss. When she was out and about, she lay right at our feet if we were sitting in a chair watching television or using the computer. She would race around the house like a fur covered missile jumping and kicking and make banked turns off of the furniture. Her favorite spot was in front of the sliding door were she could see everything in the backyard and the family room. She will always be rememberd by us as the rabbit that started up our rescue efforts and will be greatly missed--but we will always cherish the many memories we have of our "Commander". Larry & Nancy

She sounds like she had quite a personality! What a wonderful bunny to have in your life for 6 years full of sassiness, foot cuddles, and speeding around the house! You are blessed to have known her and she was blessed to have a family like yours.

Binky free, Commander Bun-Bun.

Mom to Tony, Muffin, Frida, and Big Bunny

I'm so sorry for your loss.

It's hard when they do leave our lives... when they leave us for the Rainbow Bridge..they leave this big bunny shapedhole in our hearts....that seem's to stay there forever.

But it's sounds like Miss Commander Bun Bun had a good life with you...she sounded like she was such a character..and so well loved and spoiled.

She's looking down on you..remembering all the love and good time'sthat you had shown her.

Rest in peace sweet one

RIP all my bunnies 2011...(Sunshine,Jack ,Charlie,Marley,Chocolate Bunny,Maggie,Ebony,Wally,Zak,Josie,Riley)....

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I know how hard it is. I've lost two myself. Oddly enough, my first one was named Bun Bun and I later started calling him Commander Bun Bun, how weird is that? Hopefully, my BunBun has taken your Commander Bun-Bun under his wing.

She does sound to have had the best personality ever.

RIP Commander Bun-Bun

Sounds like she had quite a special personality, that made her Commander Bun Bun. She had six wonderful, very loving years with you and went to the bridge knowing how much she was loved by you and Larry.

I had to get rid of the kids, the rabbits were allergic.

The first is always the hardest. You gave her a life time of love and happiness.

Binky free Commander.
