Oh, Petzy, I just saw this now, and I am so sorry about Mops. He was a darling bunny and you took wonderful care of him. Sarita is right - it's not a length of hair issue. I suspect that any bunny can have a point in their digestive tract that can add to a blockage and just get in trouble more easily, and there is no way for any of us to know about it. You gave him pain killers and treated him in ways that are designed to relieve him, so he didn't suffer as much as you are thinking. And you brought him home to his family and all of you stayed with him to the end. That's a comfort for him, you, and the 3 who will not be confused and search for him. They said their goodbyes and Mops is over the bridge.

I am so very sad right now to read your sweetheart Mops has gone to the bridge. Gosh, I feel like he is our Mops in a way as you share so much about your beautiful rabbits. I'm very glad for Sarita's last post as it can happen to any type of rabbit. You take such care of yours and Mops had a wonderful life with you and his bunny & canine friends.

Maybe it will seem macabre, and I hope it is acceptable to show; before his burial I showed the body of Mops to his three bonded rabbits a last time.

Deirdra chased Neigey away from the body.

Those videos made me tear up again for Mops. They are so sad, watching the 3 give their own little bunny good-byes to Mops. And you giving him a little good-bye touch too. I can see that he meant alot to all of you, and once again I must say I am very sorry for your loss, and give hugs to you and your remaining fur babies.

I will light a candle now, to show him the path to the Bridge.

Petzy, I felt a lot of emotion from the videos. I am teary eyed. It makes me want to hold Chacha in my arms (you know she would hate that as well as I do) and never let her go

That was bittersweet to see. Hard to believe that is Mops there, so still. He will know how much he is loved.  Deirdra and Lint it seems have already said goodbye. From the 1st video it looks like Neigey gets it now too. It made me tear up again too but I'm glad I watched it.

I am so sorry you lost Mops. I remember when I first joined BB we had a thread started about which celebrities our rabbits look like, and you posted Mops' photo and I replied with a photo of Harrison Ford in his Indiana Jones outfit and you didn't know who he was, and I was shocked! I always thought and always will think Mops is a very stunning looking rabbit and a handsome little man. I know he is in a great place right now binking around. I will miss him a lot, your rabbits are very special here. I will be thinking of you and your other buns, my guys here all give you bunny kisses and hugs from me.

I just watched you videos. I think they all look at peace with it, and that they know Mops is gone. Hopefully this will help them through their mourning proces. I hope the trio will be strong without Mops. If anyone can bond them, it is you.

I have read the links, and from what I understand, enzymes from papaya or pinapple cannot help. I am more than puzzled now, because of what they claim to be the cause in the articles, but I think we should move that discussion to another thread and not in in this one.

About him hurting...it is my belief that bunnies actually are not in pain as such like the way you and I or our cats and dogs can be. Because rabbits are prey animals, they have another way of coping with pain, and they don't feel it the same way. This is what I have always been told, and I choose to believe this. Anything else wouldn't make sense in nature. So, please don't worry about him being in pain.

Also, when people and animals are dying, the system shuts down, and pain is actually not felt. He has been feeling tired, that's it.

And if I go, while you are still here...
Know that I still live on,
Vibrating to a different measure,
Behind a thin veil that you cannot see through.
You will not see me, so you must have faith.
I will wait there for the time when we can soar together again, both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life to the fullest.
And when you need me, just whisper my name in your heart,
...I will be there.

Petzy, those clips are so sad. But it makes me see how much it seems to help bonded bunnies know what has happened. It almost looks like each one checks Mops for breath, going up to his nose. They seem to understand after thoroughly touching him and prodding the bag for any movement. It's the same for each. I know this is better for them than Mops just disappearing since they would search for him. They look like they are young and don't actually understand what has happened though. Like there isn't an elder bunny there to explain that all of us die, so it's their first experience and they are confused about it.

He looks peaceful. And Karla is quite right. I had forgotten that my vet told me that when Spockie was dying. He was out of pain from his systems shutting down long before he finally went.

If it's not too much trouble I would like to see videos of your three in a couple of days just to know how they are getting along. Don't worry about the bonding situation. I think they are close enough that they will work it out among them. They are grieving, and I expect they will try to help and comfort each other, and you.

I don't think the videos are at all macabre - I think they are fascinating and sad too. I'd love updates on the trio as well.

I've only had one experience with a bonded pair where one died (well I put her to sleep - Twizzler). It was at the vet's office so I think that Toffee was more distracted than a comfort to Twizzler in her last few minutes. I have to think it just wasn't peaceful for Twizzler or Toffee with dogs barking and pigs squealing. So Toffee's response was not at all like your three's. It was more confusion and discomfort from the vet's office. I do often wonder what I could have done differently since it was a planned euthanasia rather than an unexpected death. I know Toffee is just fine now but I have to wonder what I could have done better for Twizzler.

I'm sorry for your loss - I know it is extra hard to lose one of a group, as the group still needs you but you need time to grieve.

I also showed the body to my group when I had to put one down, I was hoping it would help them understand better than one leaving for the vets and just never coming home. I don't think that is inappropriate, and I think you made a good decision in taking him home to his warren. I am sure it was a relief to him to be with his loved ones when he left.

I hope you find something that will bring you comfort and emotional healing, and I hope the trio will do well together.
