Why do we love the little critters so?

Filed under: Uncategorized — texxas @ 3:23 am

Well today marks a sad start to the blog…. last night our little rabbit, William was a little subdued as he came in for his nightly cuddle…. he sat under the coffee table and benson (the golden retreiver) just made a great fuss over him. He sniffed, prodded with his nose and put his great chin on the bunny.This morning (after I had left for work early) Sue had him taken to the vet for a check up… still poorly, he sat with his head over the water bowl and looked sad.This afternoon William died at the vet’s. This is a common thing with rabbits, they get stomach / bowel obstructions and die very quickly. Mercifully, it was quick.His passing makes me wonder – Why do we become so attached to the little buggers? Not just rabbits, cats, dogs etc…. all pets. or as I prefer to call them.. furry children.   Rest in Peace little William…    


  1. It’s very sad when our furry friends meet their maker. At least you can find comfort in knowing that you gave him one of the most loving homes a bunny could ask for. Chin up my dear friend.

  2. Dear Tex, sad to hear that Bill is not there anymore. I still remember him in your back yard. Max just had a problem yesterday and we don’t know what it was. Can be from epilepsy to diabetis or a stroke. But I know exactly what you mean by love for our furry children. Talk to you soon my friend

  3. Hey Tex,
    why do these little buggers break our hearts so much. becauae they can and they do so without wanting anything but a pat in return. There is a little soul fluttering around happy to be part of your life. we watch Harley getting slower and slower and wonder what happened to our strong courageous dog. BUt he is still with us for the moment.
