|This is the last photo I've ever taken of little Linda and I've been putting off talking about it for about two weeks as she passed away at the end of August. And, to be honest, it hasn't really properly sunk in yet and I can't even imagine what it will be like not having anyone for whom to bring bits and bobs from the kitchen when I go back home to Marseille. At least I am very glad that she was still around when I visited last time and I had a chance to say goodbye, in a way, as we knew she didn't have much time left. |
But let's look on the bright side, she had a wonderful life and she was an amazing little bunny up until the last second. Heck, in the photo she is at the very top of the garden and that's a place she wasn't really allowed to go to but she decided in the her final months that she really, really, really wanted to explore that area and she would wait next to the gate for any opportunity to go there and she would come back down all by herself! Finally the gate was just left open so she wouldn't have to wait. Well, we did know of her stubbornness when she decided to really wanted to visit the side flowerbed all the time (proof 1 and 2). And I remember that once I saw her there at the top next to the some orange cocktail tomatoes, desperately trying to bite into one but she just couldn't get a grip on it with her teeth... so I asked her if she wanted one and opened one for her in half and she ate the whole thing!
And the thing is, we know she was extremely old but we can't quite remember which year we got her in. I remember we were shopping for back-to-school furniture for a new flat I moved into in Toulon so it must have been either in the second half of 2005 or 2006 so either she was 8 or 9, so she was a very old miniature rabbit lady, but in terms of adventures she probably has lived through and enjoyed about 15 times the stuff that house- or apartment-confined rabbits experience in their lifetime. And she was definitely a social little thing - gardening? Definitely not without Linda jumping into the weed bucket to see if she can't find something tasty to eat. DIY in the garden? Why yes, of course, you must have a bunny running under your feet making sure you were doing things correctly!
And on this note, the pix:pets:linda tag has existed since 2010, so we can all remember her amazing awesomeness and adventures!
