Today.

We had to say good-bye to Luxie today.  Her condition got worst and she was in so much pain.  I've felt a little lost all day.  Luxie had been with us for over two years and she did things that made us laugh and she did things that exasperated us. She loved being outside and did happy sideways kicks as soon as she was free to run around.  There were places in the house she knew she couldn't go so she would plot to get there no matter what we set up to discourage her.  When she was annoyed with us she would stomp her foot. She was usually annoyed when we tried to pet her and she wasn't in the mood for pets. She always had a project she was working on. It usually involved going inside a box tunnel and digging out newspaper. She worked at that like she was getting paid.



 When we brought Rue home Luxie adored her. When I opened their "cage" to pet them Lux was sure to lay across Rue and watch me carefully. She would let me pet her but she wanted me to know Rue was hers.  Rue seemed to take it all in stride.  They were both the cleanest bunnies ever thanks to their constant grooming of each other.
We are going to miss Luxie so much. I will hold Rue extra tight and hope she doesn't stomp her foot from all the petting.
