In Memoriam - Bella

We have lost another blogging bunny, Bella.
As Christina commented in an earlier post: Bad start to 2012.

Beautiful Bella (Passed to the Rainbow Bridge 01-06-2012)

You can read about Bella and family, and offer your condolences at Little Fluffy Adventures

Please make a donation to a bunny shelter near you in her memory.
If you don't have a shelter, here's a great one.


Rainbow Bridge

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Here's a newer version that was made into a poem.


  1. Ok, you just made me cry at work. So beautiful.

    1. @Kat: Sorry ... you can't imagine what a faucet I was preparing the post.

    2. @Kat: But I thought I should explain the Rainbow Bridge in case someone didn't know what I was referring to.

  2. Bunya - no worries. It was sad but beautiful. It gives me hope that after my bunz leave me, I will see them again. :)
