Monday Bunday: Memories

Thanks to everyone for their condolences and Tid tributes. She did indeed live the life of royalty around here.










She was my resident optimist. Always perky, always certain that something really good was right around the corner.










She loved to make new friends...










and considered Pixel her true pal.












She was more adventurous than her feline friend and was quick to explore her new home, confused as to why he wouldn’t join her. She slept right outside his carrier until he decided to make his appearance, lending her support and encouragement to what she must’ve thought was a big scaredy-cat.












Tidbit was always a sport about my travels...










and a supporter of my accomplishments.












She shared my interests...











and sometimes followed me around like a little dog.










She even went to the office with me, where she worked hard...










and made quite an impression.










Tidbit couldn't resist a good party...












and we had a great four years together, celebrating...










and sharing a lot of love.










I want to thank Tidbit’s friends at Animal Avian Hospital for caring for her and for staying open late for us on Saturday so we could be with her. Dr. Jordan and his techs were incredibly kind and it wasn’t until we were on our way home that we realized they stayed nearly three hours beyond their Saturday closing time to monitor her situation, call us, and let us do what had to be done.

If anyone would like to make a charitable donation in Tidbit’s memory, this was one of her favorites: Best Friends. You can also donate to her doctor's veterinary school, or to the local charity of your choice. If you’re not into charity or are currently going through hard times, just do something nice for someone. It’s important to add to the balance of good in the world so the negative won’t overwhelm us.

Dan, Pix, and I are doing fine. We would’ve preferred a different outcome, but we’re glad Tid isn’t suffering or having to keep going to the vet, which was stressful for her. I'll continue with this blog, even though I originally set it up for her as much as for me. I'll also continue to post "Classic Tid Pics" from time to time. Keep us on your blog reader, and hug a bunny, if you've got one (and if it will let you)!

what a WONDERFUL tribute - I bet it was a joy and bittersweet to go through and make it. i really enjoyed reading her story and this - pets are my greatest reminder of how to look at the world and face life - always living in the moment. I love how Tid was so supportive of your cat when you moved. pets are so awesome.

lots of hugs and nose bumps from zinger

tid, stanley and archi are having a blast at the bridge and can't wait till we join them.

thank you for giving her such a great life.

What a precious tribute to The Tid. She had a wonderful life with you and Dan and Pixel. She lived life to the fullest every day, she loved, and was loved. And that's what life is all about, whether you're a human or a bun. :)

May all your precious memories of Tidbit comfort you.

((((((((((hugs))))))))))

What a glamorous, high-spirited, fun-loving Whitester bun Tidbit was! I will miss her so much. But I know she is eating lots of yummy hay on the Bridge and loving you, as always. Where there is love, there's never a last goodbye.

A beautiful tribute, Auntie Bunnygirl. You and Tid shared so much happiness and love. :)

Purrs, snuggles, and gentle headbonkies from Marilyn.

p.s. -- Mom wanted me to tell you she has finished Steal Tomorrow and LOVED it. She wants to type up some comments for you, and she'll get the to you in the next couple of days.

Lovely tribute to a incredible bunny.

Whoops, tears on the keyboard...

Glad you have so many wonderful pictures of her.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Yes, awesome tribute. I can't imagine you shutting the blog down; it seems that it would be closing the door on Tid's memories, and that's not healthy for any of us.

Ellie Hamilton said...

Oh, my.... she didn't make it. I'm so sorry. It takes awhile for the universe to shift back and start filling in the hole that is left. God bless Tidbit, and God bless you.
