Sweet Sweet Taffy....

The day started off with a visit to the vet for my pet rabbit, Taffy.  She has been having some problems with her back leg.  I was not prepared for what I was told, her leg was broken.  Not sure how it happened, she lives in my laundry room in her own cozy space....but the vet said it might have been because she was 9 years old, which is apparently old for a rabbit.
We got Taffy April 15, 2003 when my kids were 10 and 12.   Today when the doctor gave me my options it didn't look good.  He could either amputate the leg which would be difficult to heal at her age or put her to sleep.  I hated my choices but after the doctor said he felt she had lived a long life and the surgery would be hard on such an old rabbit we both decided letting Taffy go to heaven was the best for her.  I have had this experience with dogs in the past because of health issues and it never gets any easier. When I walked out of that office I cried like a baby.  Taffy gave us lots of great memories and when I came back home to her empty room...the tears flowed again.  I am going to miss our daily one-sided conversations Taf.....! have a special place in my heart always!
Life is so fragile!
