Well, it is a sad day for Ryleigh. Due to an undetermined "illness" or perhaps even a broken back we are all mourning the loss of our dearly departed rabbit, Zac Efron (yes, that is really the name Ryleigh gave him).
About a month ago I noticed that something was wrong with Zac's back legs. He would take a few hops and then the back ones would just kinda give out. I thought either he was dropped and broke his back or maybe had some neurologically wrong with him.
Today when I checked on him he was laying on his side (still alive) but couldn't get up. So, Nick took him to the "vet". Unfortunately whatever he had couldn't be "healed" and he returned home this evening without him. Ryleigh seems to be taking it pretty well. Nick told her that the he was staying with the vet, but they didn't think they could fix him b/c he was so sick and they would give him medicine to put him to sleep.
Nick thought she knew what this meant, but after my conversation with her she really thinks they are just going to give him medicine to help him sleep tonight (we are starting a savings account tomorrow for her counseling she will require later in life for her parents LIES!)
