I have been the lucky owner/mother of a Netherlands dwarf rabbit, Chocolate, for the past nine years. He passed away last night, only two days after I left. He’d been visibly declining for a month; he was blind in one eye, he’d begun walking stiffly, and he stopped grooming himself or running around when I took him out of his cage every day. He stopped eating when I left and he passed away last night. I have been so upset, but I was very lucky to have him for so long, and I’d like to take a moment on this blog to remember him.
I hope he’s running around up there with my brother, lively and happy and young again.
