    We just took our little Mini Rex for her last trip to the vet. Such an amazing bunny--where to start? If I forgot to close her hutch, she'd jump up into it and put herself up. She was a world class jumper and got onto things even my larger bunnies couldn't get to. She's been with us more than 13 years and the people that surrendered her to the shelter said she was born on July 7, 1999. By far our oldest bunny surpassing Coal at 16. She started losing her mobility 6 months ago and it was time, even though we hated to make this last trip. Goodbye my sweetie, rest in peace and binky free. Tech support (my son) will be over next week to add some pics for me.

    So sorry to hear about your mini rex. Same thing happened to our hiphop, he lost his mobility. Rather than let him suffer we had him put to sleep. He had a long life almost 14 years old. Brent and Sharon

    Still can't get used to your hutch without you in it waiting for your treats and veggies.

    You need to get another mini rex! After hip hop passed away it only took us a few months to get another netherland dwarf. I even tried to get the same color but we ended up with Sadie a black netherland dwarf and we love her! Brent and Sharon

    I'm so sorry that you've lost your little bunny. I know how much it hurts, but maybe the fact that she lived so long can be a tiny comfort. I'm looking forward to see the photos of her, I bet she was adorable.

    I'm so sorry for your loss! These sweet little furry creatures find their way into our hearts and it hurts when they are gone!

    my bunny went down over the weekend...seemed to perk up, eating..but over today dropped... i knew he wasn't going to get better, so i took him in to the ver's before closing (vet said he was sick a long time and lost weight and would be in end stage of some kind of kidney or liver failure.)....Im really sad, been wailing and holding him. i keep my animal's bodies overnight, wrapped...after once when I buried my dog immediately....and got a bit of ptsd about it. hope i haven't been graphic or depressing, but id like to talk to people who know this stuff; doing what's right for our own but hurting to lose a beautiful fur suit....Im scared about tomorrow, the doubts...and when his body is buried...that empty pain. i may never have another bun. I just love him so and long to feel that sense of peace that they go on (Ive felt it before around humans and animals..but sometimes I lose it... sorry for rambling...I feel so alone).

    Sorry for your loss. I don't completely understand the story - because English is not my native language - , but I think I got the point. When my bunny died, we chose individual cremation. It's a kind of slight comfort to have his remains with us, at the place where he was living with us in love and joy. It gives me the illusion that I can still take care of him.
