R.I.P., S.J.P

It's been awhile since I've written, because we've had a rough couple weeks. Our sweet little bunny, S.J.P. (Sarah Jessica Parker), who was a part of our family for over 5 years, passed away last week. 

We had taken her in for a routine tooth filing (bunnies' teeth never stop growing, so as they get older, sometimes they get misaligned and then grow all wonky), and the Dr. didn't put her under enough anesthesia, so she woke up in the middle of the procedure, and bit her tongue. Bunnies are super sensitive and delicate - the tongue bite was too much for her - blood everywhere, she couldn't eat and had to be force fed, and to avoid too many gruesome details, I'll just say she seized and passed two days later.

We had a healthy bunny, and two days later we have a huge empty space in our home and in our lives. Needless to say, we're completely devastated. At this point, we try to keep busy every day and focus on things that need to get done. Any quiet moment - usually in the car for me - I just break down. 

It's a reminder that you just never know how much time you have left - on this planet, with your loved ones, or with your pets. So get out there, do your thing, and tell the people and animals you love, how much they mean to you. We miss you, S.J.P.!
