Farewell My Pirate Duke
Words simply cannot express the sorrow. I'm very sad to tell you my Bunko has left us for the rainbow bridge. I took him to the vet last week because his third eyelid was swollen. He was accompanied by my Seal who is always battling sludge. The vet called and asked to keep them overnight as they were still working on them both. Bunko's stomach never got better and they wanted to watch and run some more tests. When I came to pick them up on Wednesday, the tech went back there to get Bunko ready to go and he started having trouble breathing. They put him on oxygen but he didn't get any better. Probable causes were congestive heart failure and kidney problems. The vet said it was only a matter of hours before he passed, so I made the decision to stop my baby's pain there.
Our home is lonely, there is a hole that can't be filled. My Bella and Ferd are sad, it's obvious, but they are the sweetest bunnies. I spend time with them to cheer them up, but I think they are cheering me up more. Bunnies really are such amazing beings.
Bunko was pure joy, pure love. He taught us to go for what we want and never let go.
We love you my baby boy and we miss you. Thank you for finding us and filling our home with love. Farewell my sweetheart until we meet again.
