Life without Speedy

Thank you all for you lovely comments, Messages, emails and ecards. I just wanted to thank you for them and to let you know that I am gradually replying to them, it may take a while between the tears and trying to keep busy so I don’t keep crying…..I don’t want to keep crying all the time.

Life without Speedy is sad and lonely. The House seems empty and has lost its spark. I can’t bare to clean out Speedy’s sleep den or his play are in the kitchen right now, I just miss him so much that I just can’t do that final job.

Speedy was Buried in the garden he loves to play in, in front of the little apple tree that he tried to chew on. A fitting place for him I think.

As for his Blog well that will stay up, as will all his other social media. Will I continue to post….I don’t know…Maybe after all we still have the Hedgehogs to keep you up to date with and of course Bird the Jackdaw whos still comes everyday to feed out of my hand and the mouse family that lives in the front garden who shares stuff with the hedgehogs…plus all the other birds that come to visit. We even had a new visitor today a young squirrel…never seen one before in my garden…though I am sure it has probably been before as it knew where the bird table in the tree was. The squirrel was a bit nervous so who knows if we will see it again, I hope so.

Will we get another bunny or another pet? I don’t know…I do but Hubby is not sure we will see what the future holds….right now we are too sad, Maybe I’ll get fed up with the sadness and put my foot down and make hubby let us have another pet…we will see. But for now I will leave you with the video of me feeding Bird the Jackdaw from a few weeks ago….

Today My Heart joined the Thousand for my friend and Baby stopped Running

It is with a broken heart that I must share this sad news….My Baby boy passed away in my arms at 6.30am this morning UK time. He had one last great adventure on Friday and he had a little outing yesterday in his Stroller. He was Happy. He even got up for his cuddle this morning but couldn’t get up when I went to put him back in his pen this morning. It came without warning and we was going to take him to the vets when they opened but he went so quick.

I told him it was ok to leave and that his mummy and daddy loved him very much but it was ok….and he took his last breath….

His last great adventure….We will miss you so much Speedy…..

The trouble with Vet’s

So there are 2 vets one is more expensive than the other. The more expensive vet miss diagnosed Speedy’s Abscess for 12 month until it burst and then wanted to charge huge amounts after surgery to keep it clean that I knew I could do myself.

The cheaper one who was originally Speedy’s vet till they got to expensive. The one that made the mistake has become really expensive so I thought I would try Speedy’s original vet as they were closer and there are road works on the way to the other one.

The reason why because Speedy’s lump on his side has gotten bigger and he is in pain. It turns out the original vet has now become the cheaper one and they are better too. We thought the lump was the source of Speedy’s pain another abscess or cancer, well its not giving Speedy pain. The vet gave it a good look over and its not an abscess, he seems to think it is a fibrous lump…it may be cancer but he wouldn’t recommend surgery given Speedy’s age but it’s probably not and even if the cells he took out were sent for test and it turned out to be cancer he would still not recommend surgery. He believes Speedy is having a flare up of his arthritis and that is the source of his pain but the cbd oil and meloxicam isn’t covering it so the vet called Chris did a little digging to see what else Speedy could take and it turns out that rabbits can take liquid paracetamol in quite a high dose though he wanted to be cautious as he was concerned about possible liver damage and only wanted us to try a 3kg dose for a dog which is 10mg per kg rather than the rabbit dose. The Dog dose would be 30mg twice a day so infant paracetamol that you can get in a pharmacy or Supermarket for a couple of quid can be used on rabbits….who knew?

I like this vet. The consultation was 20 pounds the other one would have been more like 30 pound plus what ever for the paracetamol assuming they would have thought of that

If you try it for your dog or for your rabbit make sure you check the ingredients as some infant liquid paracetamol has ethanol in which is bad for them, the one I got was calpol not the sugarfree one as that has other stuff in it that is bad too.

Anyway the paracetamol does seem to be working so we had one good day of weather this week so we did this….

We went to the nearest beach for a little sun and R and R!
