    My rabbits Mika and Miss Piggy were killed today by Maggie and Abby. Those two dogs are the ones that belong to our ex-landlord and always run loose. They always come and visit us because they were good friends with mikey and mav.

    This morning I went out and took pictures of my bunnies under the cherry tree so I could show everyone. And the next time I looked out the window M and A were running around near the house and the roof to the hutch was off. Miss Piggy was killed across the road and Mika in the neighbours yard. I really wish they had run under the hutch. They'd be safe there. They didn't even have a chance. They didn't know where to go. I feel so guilty. I never would have put them out there if I thought any animals could get at them. My dogs never got into the hutch when it was in the backyard.

    My poor babies. We buried them together next to chiclet and I planted a tree on top of them and then I planted one on top of chiclet. I always wanted to do that for Sahara (my horse) but we didn't have the land.

    I've had five rabbits in the last year. I got my first one, Chiclet, on my birthday last year and now they are all dead. I feel sick. I'm not having any more until steve and I own our own land and I can put a brick fence with a wire roof and a hutch inside for them. They would be happy there I think. Of course Mika and Miss Piggy were really happy outside too.

    I'm so sad. :(

    Oh yeah. And I decided that I'm going to call the shelter and have them come and pick up Abby and Maggie from now on. They have to pay $90 a dog to get them out because they get picked up so much. I know that they kill the neighbours chickens and having them out on the streets is horrible. We keep taking them back for them but I'm not going to anymore. They have lots of property! Why don't they just put up a fence!

    I am truly sorry to hear of your buns. Yes I agree if the owner isnt going to be responsible enough to have those dogs in a area where they wont hurt another animal then they need to pay the fee to get them back. Once again, irresponsible people who shouldnt have dogs. Argggggg

    Awww Saje, I am so so sorry about your bunnies. That is a tragedy. I love rabbits too, I had lots as a kid. It seems it is almost impossible to keep them safe from predators. My cousin had one that they built what they thought was a predator-safe hutch but one night (they think) racoons got in. I know how much you loved your bunnies. I am truely sorry for your loss.

    I'm so sorry about Mika and Miss Piggy!! That is so horrible. I agree with you decision to have the shelter pick up the dogs - maybe their owners will learn their lesson when they pay $180 to get their dogs out of the pound.

    I hope so. Do you really think it's right? I wouldn't do it if I wasn't confident that they would come and get them. The woman really loves her dogs. She's just too stupid to realize that they need a safe, fenced yard. Her 'boyfriend' doesn't care either way I'm sure.

    I'm so sorry to hear of your bunnies :( ((HUGS)) I think it's perfectly right, maybe if they have to pay that kinda money to get them out a few times they'll be more willing to put up a fence.

    Oh Saje honey, I'm so sorry. I know how happy Mika and Miss Piggy were with you. You're a wonderful bunny mommy. I know how you feel, but please don't blame yourself. "Should've"s don't do anyone any good. Your kids are thankful that they're yours. You give them wonderful lives full of love, and there's nothing more any pet animal in the world wants. They love you and we love you, and we're all here for you.

    So sorry to hear that! Something similar happened to my mom's ferret a couple of years ago. NOT a pretty sight. Anyway, you we're a great mommy to them and I'm sure they watch over you now, to thank you for all you've donef or them:)

    I'm SO sorry for your bunnies. Atleast you know they are together. I would confront the people on their dogs and tell them what they did, unless you did that already.

    Julie's right, Saje. You need to tell the woman what she caused. She needs to hear that there were horrible consequences to her irresponsibility. And do it face to face - let her see how much pain she has caused.

    Well, Steve called and let them know. I really can't Renee. And I'm afraid that she'll just start tying them up again. :mad: Maybe I should have Steve go and build a fence for them.

    Even if you do call animal control on these dogs they probably will start tying them up agian. These people obviously have some sort of "issues" with fences. Why should you guys have to build the fence for them, they should think up the idea all on their own and put the plan into action. People that let their dog run loose annoy me. My neighbor's yorkie attacked Hannah today (ofcourse he was running loose) and he hurt her really bad. They obviously don't care what harm their dogs are causing to other people, and just imagine what could happen to those poor dogs running loose like that all the time!

    Well, we're not going to build a fence but someone needs to! We are supposed to be 'friends' with them. We spent Christmas at their house and we used to take Maggie and Abby on walks with us. That's why our dogs are so bonded. It's AHHHHHHH frustrating.

    yeah, I can imagine. I feel bad for the dogs. Have you ever suggested them putting up a fence. Maybe have other neighbors suggest it too, that might get it through their heads.
