I'm so sorry about Marshy. It's always a shock when you have no warning, but bunnies can go just that fast sometimes. They have very delicate systems, and are good at hiding their illnesses, though it sounds like he wasn't acting that way either. He may have had a genetic disorder that just surfaced.

He is crossing the Rainbow Bridge now and playing with the other bunnies.

I'm so sorry! Hugs to you. It is hard when it's so unexpected. I will light a candle so little Marshy can find his way to the Rainbow Bridge.

Thank you all for your kind word I know the pain of his loss will lessen with time but it helps to have a kind world from people that understand .Speaking of ,my sweet husband just came home with a bun, sigh. He wanted to make it all better sweet man .I didnt want another bun so soon but the fact that he tryed to make the hurt go away for me and the kids is increadably sweet plus he told me he couldnt stand the thought of not having a bun running around the house .So for the past 3 hours i have been completly cleaning with vinager/water  and rebuiding the rabbit pad so new bun can call it home. He seems friendly and happy not to be in that feed store tiny cage but it will take a few days for him to ajust to us I cant help but feel guilty that we replaced marshy but this bun needs love too .Thank you again for the sweet words and reminding me that Marshy is happy over that rainbow bridge having all the bananas he can eat .(((((hugs back ))))

I'm so sad to hear this! Sending you healing (((vibes))) for your heart. The new bunny may help you heal and it's great you've opened your home for him so soon. Do not feel guilty - you honor Marshmallow in giving a home to one of his kin.

binky-free sweet marshmallow! Such a sweet bun. I'm truely sad to hear of his passing.
You have no need to feel guilty at all Marshmallow will be proud of you for giving a home to a bun in need. And it was so kind and thoughful of your husband. perhaps this is the best way for him to deal with it aswell? You gave marshmallow the best home he could have ever wanted and now you are opening you heart to another humble bun. good luck and lots of love to you, your family and your new furbaby.

Thanks guys you are right giving a home to a needy bun wont take away from Marshmallow but honer him thanks for reminding me of that it realy helps .Yes Mirbear i belive you are right it is a sweet thing for hubby to do bringing home a new furbaby and a way for him to cope with Marshys loss he was increadably close to Marshmallow shocking to see such a big tough man fall in love with a fluffy cute bunbun but he did right away and they would lay on the floor and cuddle everyday too .New bun is settling in nicely I made sure to clean the cage well and have just let him explore it he like to rearrange things to his liking lol ill sit quietly beside him petting his nose and speaking softly every now and then he is still nervouse about us but seems to like the pets as long as we move very s l o w  l y .Ill post pics and updates soon

Sorry to hear about the death of your Marshmallow. It's so hard to lose such a good bunny friend. Giving your love to a new rabbit will never replace Marshmallow in your heart. Hugs

So sorry for the loss of your bunny. We lost our first too, and as hard as it was to decide to get another one....we wouldn't be happy without a bunny hopping around. Best wishes to you, your family and the new bunny!
