So yesterday I told you about the rabbit I drew and named Sir Walter Harrington. I also posted the quote from Helen Keller about one door of happiness closing while another is opening. Here is the rest of the story.
Since Razzy's death, Sugie and I have been terribly sad. We miss him so much. When a rabbit is "bonded" to another rabbit, it can be a little bit more complicated. You see, rabbits can grieve so much that they make themselves sick and they can truly die of a broken heart. David and I kept a good eye on Sugie and I spent tons of time in the studio with her and gave her lots of attention....but....
A friend of mine told me to go visit a lady an hour away that has a bunny rescue. She had a sweet little bunny named Snoopy that looked just like Sugie. She also had another boy named Simba. Both were under a year old. A little bit of a concern for me as Sugie is 2 and baby bunnies and adult bunnies eat different stuff. I went to the rescue on August 28th. Bonnie, the lady at the rescue, got Snoopy and Simba out of their pens and put them in playpens for me to visit with them. Then out of the clear blue she says, "oh, did I tell you about Sir Harrington?" WHAT??!!!! did you say??? "Oh," Bonnie says, "I thought I mentioned him." My heart skipped a beat and I got goosebumps. My drawing...my font on my patterns....Bonnie is a weaver and also does ceramics (visit her here). On each of the bunnies pens in her rescue, she makes a little ornament with the bunnies name on it. I walked to the pen and saw this.
