Thumper, my Bubba / One year on :( (Long post, sorry guys!)

Post by Thumper2001 on Thu Dec 15, 2011 3:38 pm

Nothing I can write here can do justice to explain how much I love you, how much I miss you and how much I am hurting right now. I canít believe I am writing your Rainbow Bridge tribute, it feels so final, but I have to do it, for you.

Fate brought you into my life 10 years and seven months ago. I shudder when I think what might have come of you if you hadnít been found in that field that night. You were so small and so scared. Who knows how long you had been out there for. All these years Iíve wondered where you came from, but all I want to know now is, where have you gone?

You didnít live with me in the beginning, but I always knew I was going to make you mine. We were destined to be together, you and me.

I canít believe you are gone Bubba. Of course, we knew about your tumour and we could see it was getting bigger, but the vet said you had a few months left, and then you were gone just 4 days later. The end was all so sudden. You died in my arms/on my knee, on the way to the vet on Saturday December 10th at approx 14:30. I hope you felt safe, and that you knew how much we loved you. I am sorry that I never thought to take your blankie with us, but we left in such a rush. A selfish part of me is glad, because I want to keep it, it was such a big part of you, you had it forever! But you were not left alone, I left you at the vet with your big green towel, so you will always be warm and comfortable. It was so hard to leave you there, but I hope to have you home for Christmas.

You did exactly what I asked of you, I BEGGED you not to let go until we moved out of the flat and into a new home. I so feared you dying in the flat because Iíd have felt like I was leaving you behind if weíd moved afterwards. I wanted memories of you in our forever home. Thank you Bubba, for giving them to me.

You took my request quite literally and you left us 6 months to the day we moved in.

People keep saying to me ďshe was oldĒ ďshe had a great lifeĒ ďnobody could have loved her more than youĒ ďnobody could have gave her a better life than youĒ but I never felt like I could do enough for you, I didnít feel like anything was good enough for my Bubba. I would have wrapped you in cotton wool if I could, to protect you from the world.

Whenever I was in a bad mood or just having a bad day, Mark would point you in my direction and I would instantly feel better. You brightened up my life and now I am in such a dark place without you.

Since we moved into the new house, I slept with you in your room on a Friday night so Mark wouldnít wake me early in the morning. How can I sleep in there now without you?

Iíve never been big on Christmas, but every Christmas night before bed, you and me would make a pact, one more Christmas together. I didnít ask you to make that pact last year because I didnít know if you would make it and I didnít want you to feel like you were letting me down. But now, all I can think is, if weíd made that pact, would you still be here? But I know you would be if you could be.

Iím home alone today without you, for the first time. The house feels so empty without you. Iíve just spent hours looking at all your pictures, some of them made me smile, most of them made me cry. Iím so glad that you spent half your life with a camera or a phone poked in your face, because the pictures and the videos are all I have left of you now.

Over the next few days, Iím going to clear some of your stuff away. Please donít think that Iím doing it because I donít want your things around or itís because I donít love you anymore, I have to do it, because looking at it all is killing me. Seeing your cage every day, filled with your things but not you is breaking my heart even more than it is broken already, if that is possible.

Already my life has changed so much, I donít like it one little bit. Your needs were always my number one priority, and now youíre gone, Iím lost.
I canít believe Iíll never hear you grunt with excitement again, or that our nightly cuddles on the sofa are no more.

So many people have cried for you Bubba, but nobody more than me, I miss you so much it hurts.

But you will live on through me and through HH. I still have hundreds of your pictures, videos and stories to share. I just hope, in time, that I can do it. Right now it hurts too much but I will try my best because itís the very least you deserve. But if I canít do it, please forgive me, itís only because I love you so much.

Thank you Thumper, my Bubba, for the amazing 10 years and 7 months we had together. You have made such an impact on my life, my little mange tout addict. I am honoured to have been able to call myself your bunny-mummy. You were one in a million; there will never be another like you.

Sleep well my beautiful baby girl, we will love you and miss you forever.

Love from your Mummy

Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

I can only read half as I can't see to read the rest for crying, but I've looked at the photos and she was just such a little star and it just won't be the same without her here. It doesn't matter if a bunny is 7 months old or 10 years of age there is never a right time for them to leave us.

I just love the way she crosses her front paws a true sign how comfortable she was with her world

Thumper sweetheart I will never forget you

A beautiful heartfelt tribute to a very special girl.

I am so sorry your heart is breaking. I wish I could take some of the pain away for you. It doesn't matter how old she was or how ill she was, she was your friend and you didn't want her to go whatever.

I think that fact that it all happened so fast after you were given the estimate of a few months was a body blow for you. I'm sure you feel cheated as I would too.

We are all here to help you get through this and we are all hurting too, but not to the extent obviously, that you do. Hugs Hugs Hugs

Whenever I see mange tout, I think of her and I hope there are meadows of the stuff at the Bridge.

Merry Christmas sweetheart x x x x x x x x x

It's not the same here without you Crying or Very sad

This was you about this time last year.

Refusing to open your presents!


Checking out your new bed after I opened it


I think you decided you liked it!


Breakfast in bed!


I remember last year my dad picked me up from MIL's and we popped in by our flat for their presents, we packed up the car and I said 'oh, I've forgotten something' I ran back inside, wrapped you in a towel to keep you warm, and off we went!! Dad said to me 'Do you really think I didn't know what you had gone back for?' Haha!

After we got there, you decided the best place to lie would be right in front of the living room door! Dad wanted out, he pointed at you and said 'good one!' and was about to move you. Me: 'noooooooo!!! I'll move her!' Haha!

I love you loads Bubba and I miss you so so much. Today is going to be so hard without you, it already is Sad I'm so used to you running away with bits of wrapping paper in your mouth, refusing to open your presents and generally being ace!!!

I hope you aren't missing us too much.

We love you and miss you Bubba, love from Mummy x x x x x x x x x

Happy new year Bubba.

I am so sad that you never saw 2012. It would have made us so happy if you had.

Even after we moved out of Nanny's and into the flat, you spent most Hogmanay nights at Nanny's, for your own safety and sanity. The flat was always too rowdy for you, but after the bells, we would always walk over to see you, to say happy new year to you. (And them of course.)

I'm sure it was strange for them, you not being there last night and this morning.

New years day morning was always me nagging Mark. 'Can we go get her now?' 'How about now?' 'Are you nearly ready yet, we need to go and get Thumper!'

It was always a day where we three did absolutely nothing! I remember last year, you lying in your cage snoozing and I was on the sofa reading a book. You could have came out but you enjoyed your lazy days too!

I sat in your room last night, you were the first person that I wished a happy new year. I wish I could have done it for real, rather than talking to your picture and your empty cage.

I miss you so much baby girl and starting a brand new year without you is upsetting me so much.

I will love you forever and will think of you always.
