It's taken me too long to post this but I have been broken up over this.
Lady, my Holland Lop I rescued a year and 4 months ago died in my arms March 26th at 15 til 8pm. She turned into the love of my life from rescuing her from a fearful lop that was scared of people to a people loving lop that would run in between my legs every morning (she slept outside my bedroom door in the hallway) in a figure 8 between both legs and finally standing on her hind legs to beg for craisons and treats. The night before she died she was giving us kisses and being so cute and we were talking about how far she had came from the rabbit I was going to take to Petco to get adopted from her biting me all the time on the behind when I was going to nick name her ass bite... sigh..

She had jumped into her cage which was always left open on the floor and caught her leg in the door, **** those metal wire doors and seemed ok. I was home and caught what happened and immediately took her out, called the vets and kept an eye on her. She was hopping around like normal , no problems. The night before she died, I heard two high pitched noises coming from her direction in the hallway that woke me up and looked and found her eating her pellets. I was confused, but that should have been the wake up call for me to take her to the vet in the morning, but she was running around, acting normal, like all prey animals do. Cut to 7pm acting as if she cannot walk. I pick her up and she make the same noise she made the night before and I freak out. Her head is rolling all over the place and I know what is happening, she is going to pass, and it was probably from the accident that happened days earlier that me and the vet thought was ok.

Since it was so late I had to call to find an emergency hospital that could take care of a rabbit other than to put it down and by the time we did,
she died in my arms walking out the door to take her. I was calm by that point and stroking her head and telling her it was going to be ok while trying to get to the car.

I took her to the vet for the necropsy and figured out it was a blood clot that caused her death and it was probably from the bump/ caught leg.. it's something he said we would have never caught and found and was a matter of time. sigh....

I would take her to the vets for the drop of a hat to make certain she was ok and now she is gone..

I'm glad I was able to get her before she was put down at a shelter, brought to me from Clover patch Rabbit Rescue in TN to MD and I was able to get her to finally trust and love humans.

It took 8 months for her to trust me enough to allow me to pick her up. So it was amazing she died in my arms...

It's heart breaking but I'm consoling myself that I changed her life gave her love, made her feel love and she died in my arms of a human the cared and loved her..

She had a personality to be dealt with, tossing her ears around like long hair and would throw her stuffed animals in her water bowl when pissed off.
I loved her even when she was throwing her hay all over the floor when she was mad at me.

I'm still sad and going to be sad for a while. She was not just a rabbit.
She was my girl.. and I loved her and still do.

I'm so, so sorry. She was clearly a very loved and happy bunny, and I'm sure it comforted her greatly to spend her last moments in your arms. Sending thoughts and prayers your way Vanessa.

Binky over the rainbow bridge, little Lady!

It's almost the first anniversary of Rosebun's passing... I'm sure he's up there making himself a banana cake and inviting Lady to the party.

Oh, Vanessa. :( I'm so sorry. Lady had really blossomed under your care from an unsocialised, grumpy rabbit into a beautiful, loving little bun. I know that she would have felt entirely safe in your arms.

:rainbow: Binky free, Lady.

So sorry for your loss. Sometimes it's hard not to try and second guess about things like this and bunnies are so good at hiding problems from us also. Rest in peace little girl, you're loved and missed.

I can't believe it. Today is a month that my beautiful baby has been gone. .. It doesn't hurt any less... and I type this crying again thinking of my girl who I only had a year and 4 months with. I miss you little girl. I wish you were still here with me, hopping beside me like you did after you learned that people loved you and you could trust them, nudging me with your nose and waiting for me to pet you and stroke your back and after wards you would give me kisses and licks. I miss that most of all. No other bunny can replace you my dear darling Lady... a few more pictures and one of me and her together... :(

I can't look at any of these post without getting misty--there is nothing I hate more than having to post here, but, they are all so loved by us that it is the very least we could do to celebrate the joy and happiness they shared with us, whether long or short.
