I am so sorry for everything that you're going through. I've been following your other threads, but haven't chimed in much... Just know that my heart goes out to you and your bunnies. I didn't know Jack's story (until Jersey posted it), but I do know that he had a great life with you. I'll be thinking of you and Jack tomorrow. That tribute video you posted was beautiful. (((((Hugs)))))

I am so sorry. I will be thinking of guys tomorrow. Hard heartbreaking day. Be sure to be good to yourself and get rest. You have given Jack a wonderful life and after the hurt begins to be replaced by more with memories of his wonderful life with you -- a blessing full of love.

HUGS! Even though we are far apart, you will have many of us with you in spirit.

It went well. It wasn't as horrible as I thought it would be. Vet had to go out and get some more meds, as Jack just didn't want to let go. My boyfriend who had been close to fainting (men!) was sitting on the other side of the room and finally came over and kissed Jack godbye and told him he would be missed...and that moment, Jack went.

We have been home for an hour now and Karl and Molly are still saying their goodbye. They have groomed him from the moment he came in and now Molly is snuggled up against him. I'm not sure how long we should wait before we can bury him?

hi karla! i feel heartbroken for you ...... his life was better for just knowing you and vise versa i assume.
it is so hard to make that decision ... it can be so easy to be selfish and not let them go ...... you did it out of love and im sure he would of loved you back for it

I lit a candle. There is a group for Jack now for those wanting to light one also.

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

Aww, that's such a sad, but sweet story about Jack hanging on until your bf could say good bye too. I went and lit a candle for Jack too. I'm sitting here at the library, waiting for my next class today, and trying not to cry!

I am so very sorry to read this about Jack. My heart is still really tender, after losing my Bella, so I can definitely empathize with what you are going through. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.. both of you! Binky free, Handsome Jack! Bella Bunneh is there.. she's a little bit sassy, but she's an angel, too...

karla,
That is very sweet that your BF let Jack know it was OK to say goodbye. He is peaceful now.
Thank you, Jerseygirl, I lit a candle for Jack.
There's a field of Binky Bunnies over the bridge.

Wishing all those great memories to bring joy and overcome the saddness you feel now. You are both wonderful Bunny parents and Jack was so lucky to have come to you and live such happy days.
Sending hugs your way, wish i had read this at home and not work *whipes a tear*

Isn't it amazing how pets can do that, just wait for the final ok to go. If your other buns are still snuggling next to the body, I would suggest putting out some treats so that they could go munch them and see that Jack isn't going to come with them.  After that, that should be enough time.

BTW, not all of us men are that bad... at least in public.  My girlfriend almost hated me for how distant and cold I seemed when we brought in her old bun's remains to the vet but when she stepped out of the room so I could finish up the paperwork, I lost it.  And yet, was just fine when I left the room.  Sometimes we just have to put on the gruff exteriors so that all the work that has to get done gets done.

Then there are the faintin' pansies...

I am sending so much love to you and your bunny family. Hang in there. I think that your story has touched a lot of people. I had to wipe away a few tears myself. The video that you made for him is beautiful - he must have been such a sweet spot in your life. **Binky free, lil one!**
