I'm so sorry to hear about Peter. He had a good life and I'm glad he went quickly and peacefully.

It's tough to have one's pet die. But, I hope when it's time for me to go, it will be as quick as Nords' bunny.

We had to have our late cat put down. I made the decision to end her misery, and for days afterward, my wife kept asking if it was the right thing to do. I still miss my sweet cat.

Bless you for taking such good care of your animal friend (and all others on this forum who do so).

That kind of caring and loyalty is worth far more than any of the financial/employment issues normally discussed here.

Nords, so sorry to hear about Peter Bunny. You all gave him a good life. What better thing is there in life than to be loved and cherished? I discovered recently that my pug-mix (adopted at what I thought was approximately 2 years old was most likely 5 years older). He has become quite gray and arthritic over the winter. I keep the house very warm and give him lots of treats. I carry him up and down the steps. So hard, but I keep thinking that I rescued him from a shelter. It was no-kill but what would have happened to him if I had not brought him home? I will be OK if I have to put him down (if he starts to suffer) but I don't think I will get another dog for a few years.

So sorry to hear about this, Nords. I had been following your posts about him. You were a wonderful bunny dad.

It's coming up on a year since our beloved cat died. I still think about him every day. Still very sad but lots of wonderful memories, too. He was the cat who would bring stray socks upstairs from the basement hamper. I used to get choked up sorting laundry after he died. Now I see it as a time to remember what a clever, silly, spunky cat he was.

I can't believe that I am feeling upset about a bunny that I never knew.

I'm just glad that Peter had a peaceful passing and you did not have to make the decision to euthanise. Remember the good times.

So sorry to hear about your bunny. Sounds like his last days were pretty good. I'm glad it worked out you were home.

Nords,

Sorry to hear about Peter Bunny. Our pets are so much a part of our life and they know they are loved during their time with us.

Time will lessen the pain but they will always have a place in our heart.

Bless your heart, Nords. So sorry to hear of sweet Peter's end. The loss of a pet is so difficult to express to those who do not understand the strength of our bonds with them. As one who has been there all too often, I hope you find comfort in his long and happy life with your family and the peaceful end you provided for him.
Love to you and yours,
Sarah

How lucky for both of you to be together at the end really. I'm sure Peter went in peace. God bless.

I am sorry for your loss Nords. Often we get closer to our pets than to most people.

When I got the call from DW to put down our 16 yr old dog, I was not surprised because he was sick for a long time. I told w*rk that I would do the deed and return. They said "take the whole day off". Good thing because I was Crushed afterward.
