August 2007 - August 2015
Our sweet Nugget left us this morning.
Sweet old bunny.
I emailed The Mister when I got home from the vet
and said he was in heaven... probably munching on the best
organic lettuces ever. He sent a note back saying,
"Well, he lived a heavenly life with us, too."
And he's right, we spoiled him something awful. :)
We always thought of him as a rescue rabbit even though
we got him at a pet store. He had been there since a baby
and nobody had bought him after 6 months.
He'd never been out of the little glass aquarium he was in
and we enjoyed rescuing him from that environment
to introducing him to free reign of the house,
organic lettuces, and lots of toys.
You'd think he would prefer a quiet corner but we could
usually find him in the back of the house with the boys.
He loved to stay in their room even though it was chaotic,
loud and crazy there.
He had a lot of personality and loved to jump out from
around a corner and startle you.
He would run through the house and kick up his back
legs like he just couldn't contain his excitement.
He slept under the dining room table with a cat or two
and was softer than a cat could ever be.
He seems to have had a stroke several days ago
and when his condition didn't improve, it was
time to let him go. He was 80 years old in
human years. A nice, long, full life.
We miss him already.
