Goodbye Patch


After 3 rounds of medicine and still no change in the head tilt, we took Patch to the vet again this morning and she found a growth in his ear - some kind of tumor - which is why the antibiotics were not doing anything. Operating was an option, but it would have been very difficult and he probably wouldn't have survived. We chose the hardest option and said our goodbyes.

We will miss you, Patches. And I know Pumpkin will miss you the most. We love you and just wanted to do the right thing for you. Rest peacefully without pain.

I am so so sorry to hear about Patch. What a difficult decision! But I think you made the right one. I love the pic of him and his friend Chloe who are now playing together at the Bridge, free of pain.

My sincerest condolences to you and to Pumpkin.

Poor Patch. Bless you for not selfishly extending his suffering just so you wouldn't have to say good-bye. I'm sure he's doing big binkies at the Bridge, showing off for Chloe.

Give Pumpkin some extra nose-rubs for me.

Oh, gosh, I am so sorry. Patch will be missed by many. We send nose bonks to Pumpkin. (bonk, bonk).

I'm sorry to hear Patch left a bunny sized holes in your heart. Hop free at the bridge, tilt free, little bun!
