~ Princess Aspen ~

Sorry if you were expecting a nail polish-related post, but I need a little blog therapy for a loss in our beautiful fuzzy family. Our sweet Holland Lop bunny, Aspen, passed away the day after Thanksgiving =*( and it has broken our hearts. It's always so hard to lose a pet because they represent all that is good in this world, innocent, unconditionally loving and a comfort to their people. It's especially hard because my husband and I have had bunnies ever since we lived together (even snuck them into non-pet apartments). We had the horrible experience of losing three of those bunnies in a four-year period, except for our trooper girl Aspen.


She would have been eight in February, our Valentine's baby. I am comforted by the fact that she lived a long, very happy life and even had her own room. Endless treats, toys and a big brother lab who adored her and let her climb all over him. No matter how long she lived, it's never long enough. It's so sad to look at an empty room and cage and you always think of how much more time you could have had, or how much more attention you could have paid.


The only thing that makes it better is time and knowing that she was in her favorite spot in the world. But we do have the memories and photos that make us smile any time we want to think of those happy times. R.I.P. my little snowball, we love you ~

  9. I'm sorry to hear about Aspen. *hugs*

    I can relate to what you and your family might be feeling. We lost several pets over the years and there really is no easy way to handle the loss. I guess the most important thing is that she was part of your lives and made a mark. :)
