    Not active much on here anymore, so I don’t know who all will remember me. I check here from time to time but don’t post a whole lot.

    Anyway, Dec 1st, I lost my dog, Bruce to a sudden Gastric Torsion. We rushed him to the emergency one morning when we saw his chest cavity was expanded & he had white gums. They rushed him into surgery but his stomach was already too far gone & he passed away on the operating table. I love every dog that crosses my path but I have never bonded with a dog the way I did him. I always called him my “Grumpy Old man” because he was always kind of mopey, sometimes seemed depressed after his dog friend passed away 2 years ago. He got grumpy the older he was getting, mainly just didn’t care to deal with other animals so I was excited for my move coming up. I was to be moving away as I’m getting married & taking him with me…I had such high hopes of him being able to live out the rest of his life peacefully with me but he never got the chance.

    I started having a lot of anxiety about the big move & that increased after Bruce’s passing because now I wasn’t going to have his comfort with me. So to see if the move wouldn’t be as bad as I’m making it to be, I flew out to my future home state to stay there for 3 weeks starting Dec 30th. On Jan 1st, my dad woke me up with the phone call that my bunny Mimzy had passed away. We don’t know why, she seemed fine. My mom said she was still excited to eat as usual. She fed Mimzy her pellets one night & by morning, most of her food was still left uneaten & Mimzy was laying on the floor. It was so unbearable that I wasn’t there & wasn’t going to be back home for 3 more weeks still. Mimzy was pretty independent & ornery. She loved me but wasn’t crazy about strangers & was not afraid to defend her territory, all other pets in the house were scared of her Obi-bun was the only pet who was loving & patient enough to deal with her. She was still my sweetie though, & I rescued her from a bad home & gave her the best I could.

    I just got home today. Mimzy was my last remaining fur baby. Obi-Bun’s passing was a year ago on Jan 19, 2017. He was 8, Mimzy was 5. I still have the comfort of the rest of the family pets, but no more of my own.  Walking into an empty quiet room was so tough. My mom was so sweet to make a collage of photos of all of my fur babies & gifted it to me today. I’ll need to be getting a frame for it. She unknowingly picked some of my very favorite pictures of each of them. Rest in Peace, my babies…I’m missing you so very much!


    ^ These are Mimzy when I first got her in 2012. She had to grow into those ears!

    I have to be grateful that I got the opportunity in 2017 to finally take Mimzy to a pumpkin patch for pictures, & also took her to see Santa for those photos (obviously not pictured above)

    & my darling Bruce<3

    Oh no, that’s horrible! I’m very sorry for your losses
    It’s really beautiful that your mum made you the collage, I hope it can help you in these difficult times.

    I’m so very sorry. It’s so hard saying goodbye to special fur babies, especially when so close together.   I feel really sad for you. I know you loved Mimzy very much. All of your babies were so very lucky to have you.

    Thank you both so much! & for the poem, it’s beautiful! I’m definitely blessed to have had the opportunity to be a bun mom. Had it not been for Mimzy falling into my care, I don’t know that I would’ve ever seriously considered one. They truly have such huge personalities.

    Oh Mimzy, Im really sorry to read what you’ve been through. I remember Mimzy (and Obi-bun) very well.

    Bruce looked to be a lovely dog, despite his grumpiness. You appeared to have a special bond. x

    I hope your upcoming nuptials and move will help bring more balance to this year and some happier times.

    This is the third post I’ve found of a bunny that I knew well here that we have lost. And I am so sad to read of the loss of your dog.
    I’m so very sorry, Mimzy. (((((Hugs))))))) I, too, had dogs who went through GDV, but they survived it, only to pass within the year of contracting it from other causes. There’s nothing harder than saying goodbye to one of these precious friends. :'(

    I’m thinking of you and sending comforting hugs your way. My Mimzy and Fiver passed last August/September and Pip left us in January of last year. It’s been a really bad few years for our Binky Bunny crew.

    I also don’t make it in here often (shout out to jerseygirl who keeps me in the loop) but if you ever need someone to write to, my inbox is always open.

    I hope your move and wedding bring you joy and that in time there will be smiles to replace the sadness you now feel when you think of these blessed animal friends. They’ll be smiling on you throughout all your new adventures, I am certain.

    Sleep well and sweet dreams, Mimzy and Bruce. <3<3

    No not you too.  Oh no.  A double hit too.  

     So sorry.  I know it hurts so bad.  I remember you.  I hate to hear you lost both your bun and your dog.  OUCH.
