Mood: hug me
Now Playing: Me? George?
Topic: The Third Gennyrayshun
I can't believe George has gone an' dun it, you know? Left for da Rainbow Bridge ad left just me an' Fox here at Our Warren with Maman (weepin) and Dadda (bearin' up). I mean, George was only nine. Usually bunnies stay at Our Warren until they are like 10 or 12 years old. Hunny was 13.5 years old!
I know George was sad. I mean, afta Missy left, alla fight went outta him. So Maman and Dadda went over to Dr Sharin's where she hassa boat-load of rescued bunnies, and sure enough, she had The Duchess of Crosswicks, Comet, who was as black as George was white. And she had lost her bondamte, Brian, and was sad, too, so she and George reached an agreemint, to be each odders' Best Buddy.
And they rode out da hurrycane shoulder-to-shoulder while Dadda ran the pumps an genneryraytor all night and Maman sat and listened to the wind trying to pull down the trees outta the back Garden. And Maman axted George why Hurrycans allus seemed to come at night, but he didn't know eidder. But they sat togedder and pondered in case the roof blew off (which it didn't).
And then real sudden, Ms Comet hadda heart attck a couplea months later. She crossed heer at home. We were all very sad. But Dr Sharin said she enjoyed being "1 of 4" instead of "1 of 50", cos she got presonalized salads every evening, an' hed her had own peronsal treat-bag - fings Dr Sharin dosn't allus have time to hand out with fifty bunnies-in-need and exry carers comin' in. She said Comet was livin The Dream - her own screenPorch, local hay, delivered Greenbag, cats to 'noy anna Dawg to appeal to, and she got reg'lar well-bunny checkups at Chsterfield Veterinary Clinic on Rout 206 and 'Mergency hospial care with Doctor Doolan at NorthStarVETS just up the road.
Both Doctors saw George. And both treated him aggresively. They had known George from he was poor abandoned litttle baby-bunny in the cardboard box that no one wanted. and ome unccaring local vetwho was going to put to sleep if Maman "kept him hanging round, waitin." Maman rushed over to that place, showed her ID and scooped up George.
Poor guy, he had ever seen a letuce leaf and he hought Blinda, who was old and sick with cancer, was his mawie. He was sad little bbaby a furst who didn't knw what to make of his his noo home.
But he grew innu it.When Hunny left for the bridg in 2005 (and Maman blames bloodyminded sister for damages to a house not own in exress of $10,000, steaing documented property in excess of $34,000, defrauding a vulnerale person, assult, trespass and making her move Hunny out of his warm, secure home, thus causing his deah. That anger won't go away - EVER!)
Then while Maman wept. Gentle George took over the Hay Diaries.
He told me he Lore - the Blog was begun by Belinda as a writing Exercise that go out of had, then served as a dsicipline exerside. And then it lay "fallow: while Georg and Maman woked on a big book. The book isn't finished yet, but I axted maman if I could have time gettn' up to Geprge-speed. I need to learn his focus, unerstadnd the Lore of the Lagomorphs, and get inside of his head and the udder bunnies heads who all play big parts in the book. There are 25 major characters and at least 20 who appear more than once. I got my werk cut out fer me - and it's wrtten in mamam's "Good English", not rabbt-speak!!
So I gotta lotta catchin' up to do. I wanna make George proud of me.I got Big Feets to Fill, lemme tell you! But I'm gonna do it! I'm a lop and we take these things serriusly!
So this is the Seventh Strand and I am Dusty, grey-and -white lop, and I am the noo keeper obba blog.
Every Ending brings a noo beginning, although we mite not see it right away - our job is to keep lookin!
