IF THERE ARE PETS IN HEAVEN . . .

[ Edited ]

If there are pets in heaven, my bunny is surely there.  She is in a field of wild flowers doing bunny binkies and sniffing the spring air.

 

Bunny Rabbit, my dear pet for the last 6 years, grew weak from cancer and we had to euthanize her February 22.  She was diagnosed last September but recovered with steroids for several months during which time she played in cardboard boxes, ate her greens with relish, and even managed an occasional leap for joy like she did the day I first saw her and rescued her from an empy lot where someone had abandoned her.  She lived literally at the center of our household, in the kitchen in a large, homemade hutch with wire on all sides so she could oversee all our activities.  She frequently roamed the kitchen and loved to play in cardboard boxes covered with a table cloth, eat lettuce, carrots and other goodies from a "Rollin' the Hay" ball, and insist on getting petted over and over.

 

I habitually glance to her hutch every time I enter the kitchen, every time I make a loud noise, every time I reach for broccoli or celantro or bell pepper in the fridg.  I have discovered I glanced to see how she was doing dozens of times a day.  I will miss her soft fur.  I will never forget the little "umpf, umpf" sound she made whe she especially enjoyed the petting.  She made that sound when my son, her favorite person, petted her for the last time as she lay, sleepy from medication at the vets office.  His last words to her were the same he said to her every time he closed her into her hutch at the end of her play time:  "Go to bed, Bunny."

 

May God keep you and grant you sweet sleep until we meet you there.

I am so sorry for your family's loss. I just Went through the same thing a week ago like sing my 10 year old golden retriever. I know how hard/sad it is. If you are a believer, you will love to hear what Psalm 36:6 says. I had read it before, but the words just came off the page for me since. God preserves both man and animals! I hope you read it and are comforted as I have been. I like to think they will be in heaven when we get there.
