Tribute to Glenna Bunny

Today we learned that a very special bunny went to the Bridge.

Glenna was found wandering outside a little over a year ago, her frostbitten ears full of necrotic tissue, her fur stained, and suffering from warbles - abscesses caused by maggots. Her ears sloughed off the first time she was bathed, but she was a little trooper. Taken in by Bright Eyes Sanctuary, she spent a year as their special honored guest and the poster bunny for why you don't abandon rabbits outdoors.

Unfortunately, Glenna had tooth troubles and jaw abscesses. Funds were raised multiple times for her care, and the love and support were always forthcoming. After each surgery, she bounced back fast, never losing her appetite for her special "porridge" and never losing her sweet nature.

Now, sadly, brave little Glenna-bun has gone to the bridge, after yet another abscess that put pressure on her eye. The way she went was so much like how I lost my Tidbit it was heartbreaking to read.

Binky free from pain, sweet girl. You've been an inspiration.

Oh sweet little girl - enjoy those endless fields of dandelions and basil, binkies in the sunset and lots and lots of bananas.

Poor bunny - don't get me started on why people should be screened for pet ownership...

Rest in peace, Glenna.

Farewell Glenna bun.

Oh, poor little Glenna bun. She had the best mom ever in Patti. I was fortunate to meet G-bun at an adoption event in Maryland earlier this year and she was a dear, feisty bun.

Poor Glenna. We really don't need any more poster buns for release/neglect. I'm glad she got to know what love and affection and proper care are in the end, if only for a year. Now, no more pain.

Oh what a precious little girl bun. I'm sorry that she went to the bridge, but I'm so glad that she got to experience what it is to be loved.

RIP, precious and brave little Glennabun.

So sad she was abandoned and what amazing love she still had to bounce back and hang in there. I am thankful that she didn't die abandoned but got to experience lots of love and care and warmth, both physical and the warmth of love before she went to the bridge. What an amazing soul.

She was such a brave bunny to have faced such terrible treatment. Have a peaceful time at the bridge, little one.

Thank you for your good thoughts on Freckles' surgery. She's looking good today and quite happy to be home.
