Ruth by Elissa Branum / Mommy (Elissa, age 11)

Ruth was my best friend. I miss her so much. When I first saw her it was love at first sight. It was at a very big show in Texas a few months ago. I had recently lost two other rabbits Pansy and Nellie, so I was going to get a new bunny. So there was Ruth. I love her so much! I miss Ruth! So I bought her. She was shown and won 5th place. She was so beautiful!

Dutch are an adorable rabbit breed with little dark-colored “pants,” white “socks,” dark “cheeks” and ears, and a white “blaze.” Ruth was black and white and OH SO CUTE! I miss her!

Ruth and I loved each other so much! We loved kissing and hugging, playing in the house, playing chase, playing hide-and-seek, doing school together, or just sitting together.

Ruth, my baby, died of a strange unknown disease only a few short weeks later.

Ruth, my sweetie pie, I just want you to know that Mommy loves her baby so, so much. I’m praying that in heaven God will give you plenty of friends, that you won’t miss Mommy too much, that you have plenty of pineapple treats, and that you’ll be waiting at those pearly gates for me!!!


I'll never forget you, Ruthie.
