My sweet, sweet, SWEET Dallas passed away this morning. I don't know how - he was FINE yesterday,.. eating, drinking, everything. This morning I woke to find him peacefully laying in his pen, no longer with us. This is killing me..he was too young, he'd just made his full recovery and has been doing so well for weeks and weeks. Back to his happy hoppy self. Him and Duncan were good again.

Duncan is taking this hard. He's been coming to me for a lot of love. Sometimes hopping away to hide in the corner for a while. Just looking in his eyes, he looks really upset. I know how he feels.
I went to the store and bought both Duncan and Demi toys and treats, hoping to up their spirits a bit. We're all taking this hard.

I really can't write much more write now. I'm sorry.

 

I love you Dallas, I absolutely always will..you were my first rabbit and just an amazing and strong creature. R.I.P baby, I wish I could have held you when you took your last breath. I'm so sorry. I hope you are in peace...and I hope you got your left eye back in heaven - have fun up there in the green grasses of heaven Dallas. Wait for us. Duncan misses you, I miss you - we all miss you.

I am so so sorry!   This is a shock. I feel for you. You've been through so much with him recently.  Please know we're here for when you feel you want to talk more. (((DallasDelight, Duncan & Demi)))   My hope is his passing was painless and swiftly took him to the bridge where he can binky carefree.

Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear about Dallas, he was so special and doing so well. I lost Simba that way, just came home and he was gone, it's devastating. I'm glad you have the other two for comfort although they can never replace that 'first' bunny love. He was so lucky to have such a wonderful mum.

I lit a candle also, in a group named Dal

Oh, I'm so sorry! Dallas was a gorgeous bunny. I always loved seeing pictures of him. He was very lucky to have an owner like you. He loved you very much, and he lived a great life.

That has to be one of my worst rabbit fears - that I'll come home one day and my bunny will be gone. I'm very sorry that you had to lose Dallas that way.

Rest in peace, little bunny.

I'm so sorry to hear about Dallas.

You and your bunnies will be grieving for a while, but just snuggle Duncan and Demi. It will comfort all of you. They may not be very interested in new toys and treats for a bit. Bunnies grieve too, but it's good they have each other.

Thank you all so, so much for the support. And thank you Kralspace for creating that group to light a candle for him - seeing those candles and messages to him had me in a whole new bout of tears. I appreciate it all so much. I can't thank you guys enough.

Duncan is doing a bit better this morning. He is staying close to things that still smell like Dallas and I can tell it's comforting to him. He is still searching for Dallas though - it breaks my heart to see him hurting and missing him. He keeps checking under the bed and in his favorite spots he used to lay.
But he's eating much better today, and drinking well too. Demi is doing really well - I think because she did not see Dallas much, they never really met. She's been GREAT for Duncan, he's in a much better mood when he's around her. She had a hayday with the toys last night, even got some really good laughs out of me she was being so funny...throwing the baby rattle around and chasing/binkying with the jingly cat ball toys..silly girl. Duncan even rolled his ball around for a little while and chewed on one of the baby toys. Both were in happy enough moods to greedily accept some carrot

They've been making things so much easier on me. I got in Demi's cage with her and gave her some love, but it reminded me of how I wouldn't be able to ever pet Dallas like that again, and I broke down. She hopped into my lap, put her paws on my chest and rested her head on me there for at least 20 minutes while I pet her and just cried my heart out....I thought that was one of the sweetest things ever..she waited so patiently and it was so comforting to have her there like that.

Thanks again to all of you..it means the world to me

It's amazing how they know when we need comfort. Sarita introduced me to the candles a long time ago and I think it's a wonderful site.

Be gentle with yourself now and let Duncan and Demi take care of you.

I just read your other threads. You have been through so much... It breaks MY heart, and I've never even "met" Dallas.

It sounds like he loved you and the rest of his family very much. The times you shared together will never be taken away from you. <3

Oh no, this is the first I've seen of this thread, DD. I am so very sorry for your loss! Dallas was such a sweetheart and I will also miss him greatly. My prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time. (((((((((hugs)))))))))
I'm going to go light a candle for him too. I'm just awash in tears. Why, oh why do they have to leave us so quickly? And why does the black rabbit have to come for them in the night like that? *shakes head*

Bless you Dallas. Binky free in Paradise, sweet one!

(Here's the candle I lit for him...I think I either re-created kral's group or started one of my own. Sorry again to be so late to this topic and I hope I haven't caused any further grief.)

Thank you all, again.

It is okay MM, you haven't caused further grief(it has not left), if anything it is nice to know others have Dallas in their thoughts and miss him as well...he was such a silly sweetheart. I remember when he was recovering from his eye, he was kind of down, so I brought him in bed with me and he curled up into my chest and fell asleep with me while I watch Fried Green Tomatoes. That was such a great moment, I won't forget that.


Figured I'd give an update. It's been a week tomorrow, or rather, sometime tonight. Kind of hard...

Duncan is doing okay. Sometimes I'm really worried about him pining away, other times he seems okay. He's still not back to eating 100%, but is eating enough to satisfy us both so that's good. Drinking really well. He seems to be coming out of his hiding-from-everything state. He had been ALWAYS resting and sleeping(and just spending most of his time) in the hidey-area of his cage, now he's coming out into his pen and resting like he used to. That is good!
Demi is still doing really well. Nothing off there, she's still a hyper young girl!


Thought I'd post these 2 pictures of Dallas and Duncan together.... I have more, but these 2 are my favorite that I have on this computer




 

 

edit: I found photos I took on July 1st - just over a month before he passed away - to show you all how well he was recovering, and never did end up posting them. You'll all see why I am so confused by his passing when you see the photos. He had "returned" with a vengeance and was looking GREAT. (PS, he wasn't kept in that cage, he was doing too well for it - he'd gone in there because I'd refilled food..and that was an exciting event!)

 


(didn't his no-eye look awesome?)


(disapproving the colored shaped chewing toy..hah)


("wait...no.......I approve")


And the last photo. I'd been petting his head, he'd fallen asleep.

That first pic of them flopped is just... too adorable for words.

My mom wants a memorial picture of her cat Jack framed for her, he was born in her closet, and died in her favorite chair after almost 18 years in our lives. Perhaps framing a picture of your boys together would be a good memorial for him?
