We got Bella when I was only nine years old, and I am 18 now. I have had her half my life, and she was a wonderful companion and friend. Bella was a chubby bunny and liked to eat anything she could get her paws on. She even ate a hamburger once!
She had so many sweet little habits. She would groom herself furiously if you rubbed her backside. Her butt would wiggle when she ate bananas. Her very favorite food was honey buns!
Bella was there through everything. When I got a bad grade, when I didn't get the part in the play, when I went through a bad break-up. I would cuddle her and everything was suddenly a lot better.
Bella meant a lot to our family. My mother sat with her everyday on the couch when she read and patted her. It was their special time together. My father, a man of very little emotional mushiness, was in love with her. He cuddled her every night and had his own special "voice" to speak to her with. They had a bond unlike any other. Even my brother would lay on the floor with her and play around with her.
We got Bella after our first bunny, Bailey passed away. She was only two and battled cancer. Bella and Bailey will remain in our hearts forever. I look forward to meeting them someday at the Rainbow Bridge. <3 The Rainbow Bridge Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
