Squeakers is a pet; no that's not right he's our kit; one of our children that we raised after Crystal hand fed them from two days old. He earned his name because of when he ate from the syringe all he did was squeak and beg for more.
From that day on he was inseparable when it came to his siblings. Unfortunately Vanellope had to be removed as they got older but he still had Yoda. It was our decision to bring those two to the vets and get them neutered so that they could be with their spayed sister again. We had them out together beforehand and they acted like she had never left.
Unfortunately Squeaky had a complication from the neuter where he had continual bleeding. It did stop at one point for a few hours but that was it. Crystal held him in her arms all night long cradling him like a baby and he loved every minute of it. Venellope stayed by his side as well nipping him now and then to keep him awake and active(light nips of hey are you ok?).
Yesterday when he came home and we put him in his cage Yoda covered little Squeaky in kisses(he must have known) and snuggled with him until we took him back out and flew down to the vets.
Marlborough Vet clinic outside of Keene was excellent. The doctor went well and above telling us what he did; what he was looking for and the extra steps that were taken. Knowing full well how much blood he lost we and the Vet thought this might be a possibility. We have nothing but praises to say about our treatment and the treatment of our bunnies there but sometimes things don't happen as you would like.
Our hearts are broken into three. We still have your sibling but you can't be musketeers without three. You didn't fight us, you soaked up every minute that we spent with you and we are grateful for the blessing that you were in our life. Unfortunately we can't control fate nor steer it's direction and you were called up by God to embrace your father and Zangeif. I wouldn't change any part of the time we had together and thought it was only a year it seemed like a lifetime.
I will forever remember the struggles and triumphs that you had during this time and how you didn't let go until we tried all we could. No expense or effort was too great and we would have loved for you to be with us now but I know that in a blink of an eye for you we'll be walking a crossed the bridge and hear a squeak. That would be my only warning before you tackled me to the grass and searched for treats while your father looked on.
Take care of him Beau and we'll see you soon. Love your humans.
