We had to say goodbye to Caroline, our lop rabbit, today. She’d been quite ill for several months, and it was clear that she wasn’t going to be getting any better and she was suffering. I’ll miss her wiggling little nose. We had a good run, little girl!
She, like all my pets, has a human name, because I refuse to name any pet "Spot" or "Fluffy" or "Patches."
Conceptual integrity in turn dictates that the design must proceed
from one mind, or from a very small number of agreeing resonant minds.
