Sunny Saturday

Sunny Saturday

We buried our friend, Sunny yesterday.

Sunny was from the city and lived with the PM's best friend. He was a gorgeous, kind and sweet bun who loved to cuddle and play. He just turned 10 this month. Can you believe that? A 10 year old bunny. The PM had bunnies growing up and the oldest lived for three years. Sunny must have really loved where he was living.

The PM and her city friends have an understanding that when their pets move on to the Bridge, that the PM would bury them out here. This gives her friends a lot of peace of mind, knowing their beloved pet will have a proper burial. This is the first time that we have had this honor.

We chose the perfect spot, on the edge of the field, next to our black walnut tree. You can't plant gardens around black walnuts as other plants don't like to grow around it so we knew the ground would not be dug up or disturbed.

We topped his grave with roses for all the love that he shared, daisies as they are his momma's favorite and some clover in case he gets hungry on the way to the Bridge.

I spend a few minutes with him in the breeze. Soon he will be running with the wild ones.

Shalom aleichem שלום עליכם

Sunny, you were truly loved and will be greatly missed.

Sam was a very lucky bunny, to have lived surrounded by so much loved, and to have been so beautifully honoured on his departure.

Ah, that's so sweet! It's hard to say goodbye after 10 years but it's great to do it that way.

My rabbits both lived for 8 years. I buried them at our garden in Germany and every time I coame back for vacation I still see their places.

I am ever so sorry to hear about your Sunny bunny. ten is an incredible age for a bunny to live to. he must have given so much love over those many years. I am so touched by the tender way in which you have layed him to rest under the nut tree.

Love to you both dear friends from Miss Peach who will be a bridesmaid in Ariel and Mao's wedding!
