Members' rabbits Remembrance Roll 2011

The very worst part about having pets is losing them. Sometimes they have been our companions for just a short time, other times they have been our companions for many years. Whatever the situation, losing them can be very hard and often difficult to get over. This part of the website is dedicated to those rabbits who enriched our lives and have gone to live over Rainbow Bridge...

Rainbow Bridge (author unknown)

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

When an animal, any kind of animal, dies that has been especially close to someone , 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 or old are restored to good 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, someone 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.

If you have lost a rabbit and need someone to talk to who will understand your grief, please remember that the RWAF provides a pet bereavement counselling service to members. So do please contact us if you feel you need to and we hope to help make these hard times a little easier.

"I don't know how I would have coped without your support line. No matter how many times I rang, often hysterical and incoherent, I was never made to feel a nuisance. Whilst family and friends could not find the time for me, the voice at the end of the help line never let me down."

Dearly beloved Max, you were the best bunny anyone could ask for, you were more than a bunny you were my best friend and even though you went over rainbow bridge three years ago I miss and love you as much today as I did when you were still with us, I look forward to the day I see you again my friend xxxx

Benjamin Macdonald

One-eyed Benjamin came to us as a "hopeless case" in 2001, and was anything but. He has been so full of life, and never let his disability stop him.

I keep being told by vets how fragile rabbits are, and how easily they will give up. Benji was proof that this is a dreadful generalisation - rabbits want to live and are tougher than they are given credit for. Even at the end when his body was failing, he was interested in all that was going on around him and very keen for food, despite the fact that it was doing him little good.

With his partner Pipkin, he formed the closest bond that I have seen between any of our rabbits, and she is very much missing him now.

We are all very grateful for all that Benji has taught us about the resilience of the rabbit spirit, and draw comfort from the idea of him running free over the bridge.

Much love Andrew, Nicola, Oliver, Megan and all the buns

Thank you for all the happy times and cuddles.

Missing you always, but know you'll be having a great time with Aslan at Rainbow Bridge!

All our love

Archibold Glover April 2004 - August 2011

Archie was my best friend (and still is). I went to buy you that day and that turned out to be the best thing I have ever done. You brightened my world. Always there when I needed a cuddle, following me wherever I went, always looking for treats! You were the best bunny a girl could have asked for. Everyone loved you, but no-one could love you as much as I did-still do. You are my shining light and thank you for the best 7 years of my life.

I hope you enjoyed those 7 years as much as we did-I'm pretty sure you did!

Archie was THE most spoiled bunny rabbit ever. He had 7 very happy and hoppy years, the last few months of his life being his "new lease of life" after getting through having a horrible abscess-he was more mischievious and happier than ever.

Rest in peace my little angel-and know that mummy loves you more than anything in the world, and always will.

Follow us always, I always want you with us.

Love you
