Jack is passing over the bridge tomorrow, Friday the 16th 10.30 AM GMT.  It has been a horrible week and I cannot remember having cried this much in years. But I have come to terms with it and now knowing that the reason for all his illnesses, it is the right thing to do.

Please, please think of him as he crosses over the bridge, so he isn’t alone.
 
My dad who is a retired cabinet maker has made a coffin for him (so we can give him his final resting place when we move to our house this year) and he will be buried in our garden.
 
Binky free, my little guy

Somehow I feel that this is because the vet just hasn't got the experience to know how to help Jack. It makes it so much harder. I will think of him, tomorrow, have to figure out the time difference. That video is heartbreaking.

Hugs to you and Jack. Your video was sweet and it made me cry.

Rest assured Ursula, I will be thinking of you and Jack the rest of the day and tomorrow when you put him to rest. I will light a candle for your darling boy so he can cross the bridge and be whole again.

that's a lovely video.
I will think of you and Jack tomorrow, and ask Spockie to meet him when he crosses the bridge to welcome him and show him around.

In retrospect, I doubt there was anything else your vet could have done for him once we found out it was leukemia.

I am so sorry for what has happened, it is all just so sad. I had to put a dog down and it was terribly sad, but I stayed with her untill her last moments.

Your movie made me cry, it is just too sad when an animal has to be put down, even if it is for their benefit.

I didn't know Jack had been diagnosed with leukemia. I'm so sorry.

I'm so sorry. I've lost many pets, in different ways. For some reason I find euthanasia to be one of the harder ways. To be with a pet as they go away, it hurts so much. I'm so sorry.

We know he'll go peacefully.

Much love,
Alika

I know nothing will make you feel better about what's coming tomorrow, but I thought I would post the last few paragraphs of Watership Down.

I read it on bad days when I'm missing Hershey terribly and it makes me have a good cry and then I can think about  Hershey not hurting anymore and I'm sure having a good time sassing and bossing everyone at the Rainbow Bridge...........

---------------------------

(Hazel has lived long and feels his age greatly and all it's limitations, aches and pains and he wakes from a nap to find a visitor next to him, waiting to talk to him, the Black Rabbit has come to escort Hazel home. )

"You know me, don't you?"

"Yes, of course," said Hazel, hoping he would be able to remember his name in a moment. Then he saw that in the darkness of the burrow the stranger's ears were shining with a faint silver light. "Yes, my lord," he said. "Yes, I know you."

"You've been feeling tired," said the stranger, "but I can do something about that. I've come to ask whether you'd care to join my Owsla. We shall be glad to have you and you'll greatly enjoy it. If you're ready, we might go along now."

They went out past the young sentry, who paid the visitor no attention. The sun was shining and in spite of the cold there were a few bucks and does at silflay, keeping out of the wind as they nibbled the shoots of spring grass. It seemed to Hazel that he would not be needing his body any more, so he left it lying on the edge of the ditch, but stopped for a moment to watch his rabbits and to try to get used to the extraordinary feeling that strength and speed were flowing inexhaustibly out of him into their sleek young bodies and healthy senses.

"You needn't worry about them," said his companion. "They'll be all right-and thousands like them. If you'll come along, I'll show you what I mean."

He reached the top of the bank in a single, powerful leap. Hazel followed; and together they slipped away, running easily down through the wood, where the first primroses were beginning to bloom."

 

We'll all be thinking of you and Jack,  hugs, courage and strength from all of us here.  Kathy

That's a beautiful video and it had me bawling. I am so sorry for little Jack and for your whole bunny-human family. I will be thinking of all of you tomorrow.

Binky free, Jack.

 That is a really beautiful tribute video.  I'm so sorry to hear of the diagnosis. You have done so much for Jack and it is very obvious that you love him.

I want to recap a little on Jack's history for those who don't know.  Jack (aged 4-5 yrs) was living on a balcony and had various health issues. The most pressing being his teeth. His owner had being trying to rehome him for a while and was going to put him to sleep as she was moving in with a boyfriend who had allergies.

So he got a new home and another chance. A doting care giver and 2 bunny friends. His life was enriched and his trouble teeth removed to make him more comfortable.  I believe he has had other issues remedied also. Forgive me if I've got the details wrong.

We can all see in the video above how much the quality of his life improved and I want to thank you for that!  Never doubt you have done your best by him.  I wish I could give him a cuddle.  May his crossing be peaceful and pain free.  Ursula, my thoughts will remain with you & your partner . (((Hugs to you)))

Whoever says "It's only a rabbit" has obviously never loved a rabbit.

Thank you so much guys. You have no idea how much it means to me. I haven't had to say goodbye to a pet in 15 years or so, and I cannot really share my pain with anyone else than you and my boyfriend ("it's just a rabbit"). I know with all your thoughts, Jack will be fine.

JG: thank you. You got it right. And now knowing he had leukemia all along,his problems with UTI and diarhea and all the huge water intake make sense. And I have been saying to myself all this time, that if he still lived alone on that balcony, his owner would never have known about his dental issues, the UTI, the diarhea et.c. And he would not have had the chance to enjoy all the cuddles that he is apparently addicted to
