God Bless Waffle

Otin left a comment on my post that mentioned something about me having pet trouble. Well it continued. My bunny died last night and I miss him very much. I wanted to post something in his honor so I decided to recycle a little something I wrote earlier in the year. It's cute, funny, and will give you a glimpse of the friendly bunny Waffle really was.

(Before anyone flips out trying to say that I "stole" this, I want to tell you that this was on my old blog. I wrote it and yes...that was me.)


...................................................

I have a rabbit and I love him dearly. He is the joy of my life and he's kind of like my little child (since I don't know what it's like to have real children).

That's my darling Waffle and my sister when he was just a baby bunny and we thought he was a girl. About a year or so ago I was feeding him and noticed that he had something near his bottom. "Oh, Waffle! You have poop stuck to your butt!" It was not poop. It turned out that Waffle was not a she but a he.

Since then I've come to accept the fact that he is a boy. If I had known this in the beginning I would have named him Thumper, but that's okay.

It turns out that I should have named him Thumper because he has this habit that he's picked up since going through his bunny puberty...

He humps...A LOT!

I always used to tell people how friendly my pet bunny was. He used to go up to people so they could pet him and he would snuggle on their laps and such. Now he has become a little too friendly. I let him out of his cage so he can run around and he chases me around the room. I tell him, "Waffle, this is disgusting! I am your mother!" He doesn't listen.

This is him eyeing up my roommates ankle.
She had no idea what she was in for.

He spots something he likes...he sniffs a little.
He likes what he sees. He likes what he smells. He's gonna go for it.

He may be a sexed crazed bunny...but he's my bunny and I still love him.

Aww so sorry to hear you lost Waffle - thank you for sharing your old post and pictures. Last December my son sat up all night consoling his dear girlfriend when her bunny passed away -- he told me it was a very very long night.

Hugs

I'm sorry about Waffle. Losing a pet is so hard. Have you read about the Rainbow Bridge? Let me know if not and I'll get you a link. It's really pretty.

Awwww! I'm so sorry about Waffle! Loved the tribute, though...

((HUGZ!!))

I am sorry....

I can not stop giggling!!! I had no idea that bunnies would hump your leg like a cat or dog does....

OMG!!!

I used to have a cat that would not leave you alone until he finished the hump. If you knocked the damn thing off, he just got ticked and jumped on your leg again and again until you either let it finish or tossed it in the basement.

The Peach Tart said...

Aw. He was so adorable and lovable. I'm so sorry about little bunny passing.

From one bunny owner to another... my sincerest condolences! Unless and until you own a bunny, there is no way you can imagine what sweet (and trainable!) pets they are. I've had many... Ophelia, Burgess, Shirleen, Satchmo, Russell, Peppercorn... all beautiful and all special in their own unique way. And all were litterbox trained.

Rabbits are not only cool but very affectionate (obviously!!). Keep Waffle in your heart, but don't hesitate to give another bunny a good home when the time is right.

Sending loving thoughts and warm hugs your way.

Waffle/Thunder looks like a very cute pet and bunny. I'm sorry for your loss. It's always hard losing a loved one in your life - whether person or pet.
