K&K, 

My deepest sympathies to you - I just checked this thread.... I am just so sorry for your loss.  Kokanee was a gorgeous bun and we are all so lucky to have had you share her stories with us.  I thought this might being you some joy through your sadness....

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

The pictures are so beautiful! I love the one with her paw to her lips..."I haz a secrets!"
I also remember the one of her in her pen when you caught her in a yawn. "EEEEKKK!" My daughter and I think of that all the time.
We are grieving with you. She is at rest and peace now. How wonderful that you were able to bury her at your parent's house. I have many furry friends in our yard here, and will never let go of this house for that very reason.

"Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not here, I did not die." (don't remember who's quote that is)

"My heart has joined the thousand, for my friend stopped running today." Richard Adams~Watership Down

"Then he breathed upon me and took away the trembling from my limbs and caused me to stand upon my feet. And after that, he said not much, but that we should meet again, and I must go further up and further in. Then he turned about in a storm and flurry of gold and was gone suddenly." C.S. Lewis~The Last Battle

I joined binkybunny not too long ago.. My miss bazy may passed on about two weeks ago and i do know how heartbroken you are!!!!!  No one can  make you feel better,,just time and knowing what a perfect life you gave her.  Also, i was shocked being new here, how many people wrote such nice things to me  and that also helped me alot.  I actually printed out the responses and read them over and over.  I know that sounds weird, but i did what ever it took to feel better.

Please feel better!!

K&K, I do not know you and I haven't been part of this forum long. But I know how you feel. I lost several beloved friends and it has always been very hard... I remember when I lost my beautiful Olivia, a dog I simply adored... I couldn't stop crying... even to this day tears roll down my face when I remember her... At that time I came across this quote that helped me cope with such grief. I thought I'd share it with you:

'Don't be dismayed at goodbyes, a farewell is necessary before we can meet again, and after a moment or lifetime, meeting again is certain for those who are friends.'

I hope it helps... I always remember that. I'm sure my sweet Olivia is already showing your beautiful Kokanee around... ((((((hugs)))))

If I Had Known
(Charrlotte' s Poem)
By Shayna Smith

If I had know this would be the last time I felt your warm tounge
If I had known this would be the last time you slept in my pocket (coat for rabbit)
If I had known this would be the last time I heard you chur (what sound do bunnies make when they're happy?)
If I had know this was the last time I played with you
If I known this would be the last time I felt your heart beat
I would had made it last a little longer
If I had known

If I had known you would never cuddle with me again
If I had known you would leave this life so soon
If I had known I would never see your ears perk up again
If I had known you would never know that other people could be kind
If I had known you would never be full grown
If I had known this would be your last breath
If I had known you were about to leave this life
I would have made your life a little better
If I had known

Now I know that you are at the rainbow bridge
Now I know you are playing with others
Now I know that I will see you again
Now I know you will always be a part of me
Now I know that you and I loved each other dearly
Now I know that you will be healthy and whole
Now I know I did the best I could to make your life luxury and love you
Now you are in god's hands in a throne waiting for me to join you again
Now I know
My heart can rest

"Tomorrow's A Mystery, Yesterday's History, Todays A Gift. That's Why It's Called The Present."

K&K: Scooter here. I wanted to say that I am so sorry for your loss. My better half said it already, but I also wanted to tell you myself. I am currently out of town at a conference, and it was all I could do to keep the tears back on your loss just so I can do my job. Please accept my condolences.
Pet Parents to: Aeryn, Tegan, Keelie, and Kiera (bunnies); Harley, Sierra, Ringo and Owen (cats); Dakota (dog). We miss our Rainbow Bunnies: Keiran, Kylie, Reno, Carbun, Kaylee and our boy Bailey.

KK, what a endearing heartwarming story, and such beautiful pictures. Thank you for sharing. I am so sorry for you loss! I know your heart feels heavy right now. I can relate to eating chocolate and icecream during painful times. When I was younger and sad, I could never eat, but for some reason as I have grown older I can comfort eat with no problem.

You gave Kokanee such a wonderful happy life, and now she and Bailey are binkying around enjoying the other side of the rainbow bridge together.

I have always loved this poem:

Death is nothing at all

I have only slipped away into the next room

I am I and you are you

Whatever we were to each other

That we are still

Call me by my old familiar name

Speak to me in the easy way you always used

Put no difference into your tone

Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow

Laugh as we always laughed

At the little jokes we shared

Play, smile, think of me, pray for me

Let my name be ever the household word that it always was

Let it be spoken without effort

Without the shadow of a ghost in it

Life means all that it ever meant

It is the same as it ever was

What is death but a negligible accident?

Why should I be out of mind

Because I am out of sight?

All is well.

Nothing is past; nothing is lost

One brief moment and all will be as it was before

Always
keep an open mind.
But not so open that your brains fall out

I heard, but didn't see: There was a rainbow around the sun on Monday...They're called halo's apprently. I'm going to believe that was her telling me where she went: Rainbow bridge.

K&K those pictures tell it all. A sweet memorial.

For a second when I read the thread title posted here just now, I had a major stress reaction! Then I caught my breath and remembered. I became a member on the forum shortly before she died so I didn't get to know of her day to day antics while she was still around. I just re-read back over the thread and can understand why you are teary! She was a stunner! Even though it's only been four months I hope the pain has lessened and the buns that have entered your life since have help in the healing. Ok my heartbeat it returning to normal now.

Anniversaries of this kind of event are always so hard. Kokanee will always be with you though, I hope you can believe that.

What a beauty! ^_^ I can see how she became your shining star.

lolz...for some reason, that side view of her and Kahlua reminded me of the old Laverne and Shirley show...I could see the two of them, paw in paw, dancing down the street to "Schlemiel, schlemozzle...Hasenfeffer Incorporated!" *giggles*

They look like they had a the perfect bun to bun relationship.

Oh KK, such great pics! It's always sort of a bitter sweet to remember all the great wonderful things isn't it? I'm so sorry though for the pain they can bring, but thankful for all the joy that the memories can bring too! It's amazing the joy that these fuzzy faces can bring into our lives.
