Just a rabbit…

From time to time, people tell me, “Lighten up, it’s just a rabbit,”
or, “That’s a lot of money for just a rabbit.”
They don’t understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the
costs involved for “just a rabbit.”
Some of my proudest moments have come about with “just a rabbit.”
Many hours have passed when my only company was “just a rabbit,” but I did not once feel slighted.
Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by “just a rabbit,”
and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of “just a rabbit”
gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.
If you, too, think it’s “just a rabbit,” then you will probably
understand phases like “just a friend,” “just a sunrise,” or “just a promise.”
“Just a rabbit”, brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy.
“Just a rabbit”, brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.
Because of “just a rabbit”, I will rise early, and look longingly to the future.
So for me and folks like me, it’s not “just a rabbit” but an
embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future; the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.
“Just a rabbit” brings out what’s good in me, and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.
I hope that someday they can understand that it’s not “just a rabbit,”
but the thing that keeps me from being “just a human.”
So the next time you hear the phrase “just a rabbit.” just smile,
because they…
….”just don’t understand.”

Good thread Jane. :wave:

Have to say, when I lost Spenser last year I was really touched by the kind words not only from fellow pet owners, but also from some who are not into animals but couldn't know me without realising he was not 'just a rabbit'.
