Tell us about your friend:
Silky was born July 22nd 2001 and was a purebred broken lilac velveteen mini rex. I got her at four weeks old and had her for two weeks. Then on Thursday, August 30, 2001 the tragedy happened.
It was a hot day and I was swimming in the pool and my sister was carrying Silky around in her arms (with NO harness!). My sister bent down to pick some grass for Silky near where the dog is tied.
Silky hopped from her arms into the dog area and the dog chased her into the doghouse and bit her till death in the corner of the doghouse as my sister screamed and just stood there and watched the dog as I jumped out of the pool and ran to save the bunny. It was too late to save Silky's lifeless body there in the corner.
My mom removed the dog and I did not wanna look afraid of seeing more of Silky's lifeless body. I did not get over this for weeks and I don't like the dog as much as I used to.
Soon Silky's Mom had a litter with a rabbit that looked soooo much like Silky as if Silky was trying to come back for another life. Sadly, Silky 2 as we named her, was taken by owners who were irresponsible and escaped from the hutch into the woods and was never seen again.
Again Silky tried to come back in my rabbit Spice's litter of babies and she was successful. Right now Basil, who looks exactly like Silky (her color and her spots, everything) lays as a helpless kit in Spice's nest.
Born July 8th 2003 Basil seems like a keeper. I still miss Silky although she seems to be there with Basil!
Loved and Missed,
