This week we said good bye to our sweet bun Frank.

He was 11 years old and has been a part of our family for most of that. I’m so glad we got to spend one last Easter with him.

And that we managed to get in one last photoshoot with him and Dottie before he left us. He was always such a sport when it came to photoshoots, whether it was getting “nibbled” on by the baby or put in the oven to help announce her arrival.


I never thought about how much he was integrated into our daily lives, there’s a 5lb bag of carrots in our fridge…. and yesterday I finished an apple and walked into the living room with the core for him to nibble on, forgetting that he wasn’t going to be there.

Sweet Frank we loved you so much our lives will not be the same without you.

Hope you are enjoying your shady spot under the tree.

  1. Ahhh, I love this blog post. It recounts sweet memories and offers beautiful photos of the amazing Frank — such a sweet little bun. Losing our furry friends is the absolute hardest part about loving them in the first place. Ya’ll provided Frank the ultimate bunny condo, but more importantly, a special place in your hearts. You gave him love and affection … and he gave right back. Bunny licks on the hand were my favorite!
