Support

At times like these, we lean on each other for support...

Dionne Warwick – That’s What Friends Are For

And I never thought I’d feel this way
And as far as I’m concerned
I’m glad I got the chance to say
That I do believe I love you

And if I should ever go away
Well, then close your eyes and try to feel
The way we do today
And then if you can remember

Keep smilin’, keep shinin’
Knowin’ you can always count on me, for sure
That’s what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I’ll be on your side forever more
That’s what friends are for

Well, you came and opened me
And now there’s so much more I see
And so by the way I thank you

Whoa, and then for the times when we’re apart
Well, then close your eyes and know
These words are comin’ from my heart
And then if you can remember, oh

Keep smiling, keep shining
Knowing you can always count on me, for sure
That’s what friends are for
In good times, in bad times
I’ll be on your side forever more
Oh, that’s what friends are for

Whoa… oh… oh… keep smilin’, keep shinin’
Knowin’ you can always count on me, for sure
That’s what friends are for
For good times and bad times
I’ll be on your side forever more
That’s what friends are for

Keep smilin’, keep shinin’
Knowin’ you can always count on me, oh, for sure
‘Cause I tell you that’s what friends are for
For good times and for bad times
I’ll be on your side forever more
That’s what friends are for (That’s what friends are for)

On me, for sure
That’s what friends are for
Keep smilin’, keep shinin’

Grieving

It was really hard today cleaning up the rabbitry. Just looking at Clark’s empty cage break my heart all over again. It is so hard for me not to fold an extra piece of newspaper to line his litter tray.

I just cannot forget how handsome he was even in his passing, he was such a beautiful little boy.

I miss you Clark. Beth asked me why you’re not here today. I told her we sent you to the cemetery and she asked, “Dad, what’s SEMITREE?”. Isn’t she funny?

I remembered one time how you gave a shock and later I was laughing really hard. Remember that day when you acted like such a pig digging into the pellets so fast that you got one stuck in your nose? You were having greenish snots and that gave me a scare. Then I realized you inhaled a piece of pellet through the nose and that was so funny.

You must be really having fun binky-ing all around at rainbow bridge right now.

Moving Forward

Just wanted to write a note to thank all friends near and far for all the encouraging words poured in throughout the night. Life goes on and and we do find meaning in all happenings both good or bad. For the past 3 years, there has been a lot of ups and downs for Tru-Luv rabbitry. But with the amount of downs going on, any sane person would have quit this hobby a long time ago. Thinking about it, I believe I am pretty insane.

On a positive note, I believe that feeling emotional during the death of a pet only goes to show that there were indeed a friendship and attachment involved. It is a full circle of emotions as there will not be joy without sorrow. Every beginning has an end and every end will be followed by a new beginning.

Clark’s death is not the end of him, his legacy will continue to be alive through his kits and grandkits. Both Balian and Sibylla will keep him alive. As the kits grow in the nest box, perhaps there will be a few little Clarks in there. If they do not appear now, they may manifest in a couple more generations to come.

The Holland Lop circle of friends that I have are really awesome and supportive. We all believe that rabbits can come and go in our lives but friends remain forever! I have made a couple of true friends who will always be there for me through sharing my rabbits.

And when the time comes for the circle of life to be completed, my friends and I come full circle once again. This will continue on and on and on and on and on, forever and ever…

Moving forward and till death do us part…
