Bauldrick by Aristi / Aristi, Your Loving Mommy

It’s been a few months since his passing and I never knew I could be so upset over an animal I hadn’t even had for 6 months…he was truly the loveliest rabbit ever. He was my Christmas gift I had been asking for. I was extremely lucky to get such an affectionate young boy who had such a great personality. I can’t described the level of love I had for the little guy. He wasn’t looking too well one day, he could hardly stand up by the end of it and me and my mother brought him to the vet. She found he had an upper respiratory problem and was trying to gently tell me he wasn’t going to survive very long. I tried to keep from crying, but and she lay him on the floor to speak to us my mother noticed him falling backwards and nuzzling up to the vet. Suddenly to our shock he ran around the room in such fear, stuttering. When the vet caught him he immediately died in her arms and I burst into tears along with my mom and the doctor in disbelief told us he had died. I was so crushed, not on;y did my baby die but it was on my younger sisters birthday.

The vet allowed me to see him for the last time. I didn’t want to but my mom pressed it on me and I’m glad she did. He was so sweet and peaceful lying in my arms. At that moment I felt so lonely. My lovely little baby had just left me. I was in disbelief as I tried not to cry as I walked pass the people I had just spoken and joked with in the waiting room. I couldn’t keep from screaming in the car; it was soo horrific to watch. I’m only 16, and to watch something I loved so dearly leave in such a way hurt me deeply. My dad and mom tried to comfort me but I just stayed in my dark room and prayed. I remember singing to myself our little song, ” Baby Mine” from dumbo. He Was so precious to me.
My mom wasn’t much better and tried to remain calm and happy for the rest of my sisters birthday. I still cry to this day when I hear that song, I miss him so much. He was the best rabbit ever and I wish to see him someday again.

“Baby mine, don’t you cry,
Baby mine, dry your eyes,
Rest your head close to my heart,
Never to part, baby of mine,
Little one when you play,
Don’t you mind what you say,
Let those eyes sparkle and shine,
Never a tear, baby of mine,
If they knew sweet little you,
They’d end up loving you too,
All those same people who scold you,
What they’d give just for
The right to hold you,
From your head to your toes,
You’re not much, goodness knows,
But you’re so precious to me,
Cute as can be, baby of mine”
