04 Sep Bunhun
The lovely and very dignified Bun hun was born October 11, 2014 and she was so close to turning 14 before a tumor developed under her arm. Thankfully the Penticton SPCA Dr. examined her, provided the diagnosis and Dr. Mike Tigchelaar prescribed pain medicine to help Bun hun through her final days.
As in life she was loved to the end. She kept Jonathan whom she first met when he was 9 happy and motivated to give her always fresh water good food and a comfortable place to be. Before Bun hun Jon was difficult to get up but Bun hun changed that. Every morning she would be placed on his bed, he would reach for her and they would cuddle. About twenty minutes later, she would thump telling Jon it was time for her to return to her cage and use her litter box. Of course, Jon would gently get up and place her carefully in her cage and viola no more problems getting Jon up. I credit Bun hun for teaching Jon to be kind and gentle even though he is a big strong man of 23 now.
Bun hun loved crackers, from dried whole wheat pitas or crusts from bread. She enjoyed laying in Jon’s arms relaxed and curious of everything around her. The family had very hard times in her 13 years but Bun hun was always the same sweet cuddly girl lifting our spirits. When Jon started working Bun hun had the best of everything, but what she wanted and loved the most was being held by Jon who held her even after the light left her eyes. There are too many stories to tell and too many tears falling to say more. Bun hun was a Netherland Dwarf and I found her at the purple horse pet store in Rutland hiding under a bunny tunnel saying get me away from all these huge bunnies. I’m so glad we did.
