    So I bought this bunny a long time ago from a breeder of meat bunnies. I was lil and I thought he was just too cute to kill so I got my dad to save him and I raised him and named him lil bunny foo foo. He lived with my chickens, free to go to the big uncovered run with grass and trees where he loved to dig tunnels, to the small covered run where he would lounge in his spacious 4 room rabbit hutch, to the nest boxes in the hen house where he seemed to sit for hours staring out the windows waiting for me to come so he could sit on my lap and be loved on. So in other words he had a really good life with me if I do say so myself. He was the cock of the walk; he even beat up a few roosters when they thought they were the ones in charge. Anyways he was getting really old and turning grey and getting grumpy so I knew he was finally filling his age. This morning I went out to take care of everyone and I found him all curled up in his night night room (a room filled with bedding for him to sleep in) of his rabbit hutch. He just looked like he was peacefully asleep but not breathing. So he died in his sleep last night. I am really sad but kind of happy that he died in such a peaceful way. Anyways I just wanted to say rest in peace my lil bunny foo foo I will miss you and I will always love you.

    So sorry, but I'm glad too that he died in such a peaceful way. It's a good way to die. He's a very pretty boy.

    Wow, what a wonderful bunny life. I can imagine he had a little bunny smile on his face that he was so loved. Thank you for sharing this, and my condolences.
