Jack,

I am saddened to hear of Bella's departure for the Bridge. She was a BEAUTIFUL big girl. I know that she was your special somebun and you loved her with all your heart. It hurts to the core of your soul to loose that special companion. Pickles is sharing your sadness but he doesn't understand. To put it bluntly, bunnies can grieve themselves to death.

Pickles needs a new bunny friend......and even though you don't understand it.....you do too. There will never be another Bella. Her name fit her perfectly, BTW. You are not 'replacing' Bella. You are getting a new addition to your lovely warren and that bunny will be its own rabbit with a wonderful and unique personality. We waited to get another bunny after our Lady died. We didn't wait long after our Thumper died before getting Rory and grieving has somehow been easier. Not that we miss Thumper less, but with Rory's antics making us laugh a lot our hearts were lighter somehow.

Somewhere there is a perfect somebun for Pickle and I'm sure Bella will binky at the Bridge knowing Pickle is again happy.

Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs

Thinking of you Jack, Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs I know you are hurting so badly.

Here's the thing though, we all know that the majority of rabbits are happier in pairs (or more). And though we all know deep down that at some point we will lose one of the pair it is not something we want to think about or make plans for. As much as we grieve for the lost bun, I think we all have to try and put the grief on one side and think on what would be best for the remaining bun. I know how hard this is to do, and how hard it is to think straight Sad

Bella will always have a very special place in your heart, you are not being disloyal in thinking about finding a new partner for Pickles. If you were able to ask Bella I am sure she would want you to put Pickles first. He is probably a very lonely and confused bun right now.

Our human hearts are very stretchy as far as rabbits go. You will always hold Bella there but you will soon find there is room for another bun in your's. Offering a rescue bun a home is a wonderful tribute to Bella. You are able to give such a fantastic home and such wonderful care. A friend for Pickles would be a lucky bun indeed. I think Bella would be very proud of you xxx

I echo what Sixer said. Bella taught you how to love deeply and she would want you to show love to another bun that was in need of saving. And when you get a bun from a rescue you are not only saving that bun but also the bun that can take it's place in the shelter. Saving TWO buns! How fantastic is that!?!?! Bella would be so proud!

I am so sorry to hear about Bella, it is such a shock Sad but I agree with what everyone else has said, you need to think about Pickles and Sixer couldn't have said it better, what a lovely tribute it would be to Bella to help a rescue bun who would be so happy with you and Pickles Hugs Hugs Hugs Hugs

Jack I think that it is important to tell yourself that this is not a replacement for Bella, but a new partner for Pickle. There are no guarantees that Pickle will be ready for a new partner even if he does seem miserable at the moment. But if he does find a new partner to love I think you have to enjoy his fulfilled needs and not blame her for not being Bella. It will feel odd, but I am sure she will worm her way into your affections in no time.

Hi Jack Wave

I am wishing Pickle all the best of luck at Cottontails. I hope things have gone well!

I think everyone else have already said it - you are in no way, shape or form replacing Bella. You are doing what is best for Pickle as his owner and that speaks volumes. You are also giving another needy bun a home, and clearing a space at the rescue for one more Hugs

I am sure that in time you will grow to love Pickle's new friend, and Bella will be up there watching you, very proud.
