Lily the Bunny

For my youngest daughter I made this little bunny, named Lily. I thought she would feel too old by now for little crocheted animals, but bunnies she can't resist. 

Maybe you remember my pictures and stories about our Flemish Giant Haasje. He lived indoors and when one of us was at home, we took him out of his bench, so he could hop wherever he wanted, though most of the time he lied stretch out sleeping.
Last May he died. One day he was running around in the garden, even digged a hole, and the next day he lied limp, panting and miserable. The vet thought it might be an infection, so after some antibiotics and analgesics we took him home, hoping for the best. But his status didn't improve over the night and the next day. At the end of the afternoon, I couldn't endure it anymore to see my precious friend in such discomfort. I called the vet to come over and after she ensured me a couple of times that it was for the best, I decided it was time.My dear friend. Best rabbit in the world he was.

  8. Such a cute bunny! You never get too old for those.
    I had bunnies for companions for 25 years and my heart broke every time one of them left me. I like to think they are all together on a green hill now, a bit like the one in "Watership Down".
