Teddy.

My last rabbit Teddy died today. He was about 9 years old, maybe older which is old for a rabbit. He started to lose control of his back end which is usually fatal in the nastiest possible way for rabbits (google fly strike - actually don't, it's really not very nice) and he couldn't use one of his back legs which was getting painfully urine scalded, so I took him to the vet this afternoon.

Goodnight sweet boy.

So sorry to read about your loss of Teddy.

Thank you. It never gets any easier, no matter how many you love and lose.

I seriously think this is the cutest rabbit I've ever seen. And I adore his name.

I had a kitty, Mr. Ripley, whose back leg stopped working one night, out of the blue (different cause than Teddy's I know - and I took your advice and did not google it). But it was a hard night - we had to put him to sleep. He had been "my baby" at the time. SO...my heart is saddened to learn of your little Teddy.

If I get Lil a stuffed rabbit for Easter - I'm so going to name it Teddy :)
