Sid Saunders was taking a leisurely walk through the woods one day in East Sussex when he tripped over something and nearly found his face buried in the ground. But what he tripped over… well, there actually WAS something buried in the ground.
After straightening himself up, Sid looked back at what caused his misstep and was shocked to see a small tombstone. That’s right. A tombstone, and it was out in the middle of nowhere.
It had obviously been there a long, long time, and it apparently was never cleared of debris. So Sid knelt down and began to read what was inscribed on it. He had trouble reading it, so he came back the next day and cleaned it up.
When it was finally cleared of the dirt and debris, Sid was shocked after reading it. The grave was not actually for a person, but, rather, a special pet… a rabbit to be exact. It’s name was Duchie, and it had died back in 1882 at the age of 13.
It’s believed Duchie lived there on a private estate back then. Sid thought it was great that Duchie’s owners went to the trouble of having a real tombstone made up for the pet. And maybe, that’s just the way it should be.
