    Oh, Jan. I cried when I read what you wrote. I'm still crying. I'm so sorry. I still remember when you said she licked Perry's picture. That broke my heart. I'm sure they're together now, snuggling in a field of carrots.

    I'd like to think Mocha gets to play with them every now and then. I always felt she and Marbles were the same way. He misses her a lot. It's almost been a year now and I still grieve so much. I wish I was there to hug you.

    Perry and Pernod are together now, and there's no more pain. They were the luckiest bunnies to have ended up in your family. They couldn't have been more loved.

    UPDATE: Well Pernod didn't like how things are run at the Bridge, so she cut out of there and stays with you along with Perry all the time now.

    Leave it to you, Jan, tohave a bunny refuse Heavento stay in your house instead.

    Watch for signs of them. They leave them.

    Thanks again.

    To2R - I often think about Mocha and Marbles - 2 of the most attractive Dutches around. How is Marbles doing on his own?

    Well, I got Pernod's ashes back, so I feel she is back with us. I can't tell you how hard it is not having her under my feet, demanding what she wants all the time. I miss my little girl :(

    John did a Rainbow Bridge memorial picture of her, like he did for Perry and Fudge and we have hung them in the Bunny Room, to watch over Shadow

    Shadow is doing OK, and has let us pet him a bit more, but I do think he misses her - probably misses being told what to do, just like us!

    I received a lovely card from the vets and techs saying how sorry they were about Pernod and wished they could have saved her. They have also been in touch with a rabbit specialist in Saskatchewan about her chewing her tail off no one seems to have heard of that in rabbits :?

    The culture they took showed some kind of fungus, but they have sent it to pathology to see if they can find out more. I can't praise the vets high enough, for their help and compassion.

    I miss my little girl so much :(

    Jan, you'v reallybeen great about expressing what you've gone thourgh w/Pernod and must commend you for it.. Others will be right behind you (unfortnately) but would hope that I could be as insightful as you have been.

    Hoping you and yours are happy and healthy tonight and keep posting of Pernod as she may be gone, but not forgotten in the least..

    Jan, I just wanted to tell you Im thinking about you tonight. How have you been holding up?

    Ive had that picture of Pernod outside pruning your tree as my background for months. Everytime I look at it it makes me smile.

    Hope youre doing well.

    Oh Haley, thank you so much for thinking of me :hug:. I am so touched that you have Pernod's picture as your background :).

    Things have been rough lately - I haven't posted them on the Forum. The week after we got back from Vegas, John was in a car accident. Someone smashed in to the back of him at a junction, so hard he crashed in to the car in front. Fortunately, he wasn't hurt, but the car was a write off.

    The same week, my mom, who was doing well after her fall here, had a mini stroke. She was slurring her words and very confused when I spoke to her on the phone. My brother and sister-in-law have been wonderful, but I felt so helpless stuck here. She also got a water infection, but after strong antibiotics, she is back to herself, and no lasting effects from the stroke - thank God.

    I miss Pernod so much. She was a rock to me when I needed to cry or have a cuddle. Shadow has become more 'people' friendly, but he isn't a 'cuddly' bunny. And Jester - well, he has too much energy to sit still and be cuddled. They aren't any nearer bonding, and have had a few fights, but no major injuries, just a few cuts and scrapes. I find I really miss seeing Perry and Pernod snuggling - I really think they were a one-off couple, just made for each other.

    Thanks fo asking. This forum is the only thing that keeps me going on bad days :)

    Well, Pernod, today would have been yours and Perry's 6th Gotcha Day! I so wish we were all together to share it :(.

    I miss you so much, Pernie, I really do! The only thing that helps is knowing you and Perry are together again, as you should be.

    Love you both

    Mommy x

    I am so sorry, Jan. I offer a hug to you. I know you need one now.

    You take care, and let us know how you're doing.

    I'm so sorry Jan. I never really knew Perry, but I think of Pernod most times I buy food because I think of hunting in all the pet shops for the SS to send to you (and then trying to explain to the guy at the post office that it was a present in the package-because it's easier to say a present than anything else-, and then he asked specifically what it was and I had to conceed I was sending a present of rabbit food, lol). He's stayed in my heart more than most bunnies do, and to have that affect on someone he never knew he must have been a special guy.

    Thinking of all of you, and hoping you are doing ok.

    I'm just a PM away if you ever need a chat.

    Thanks for your replies. I was a bit weepy yesterday, missing my babies. What made it worse is that Shadow and Jester are on a major hate trip at the moment - couldn't even keep them in the same room last night, as they were fighting through the bars. Such a difference from the snuggles and cuddles Pernod and Perry shared :(.

    Tracey, I'll never forget how you went above and beyond for Pernod. She sure loved her UK pellets, and I'm sure they kept her going for as long as she did :hug:

    Something I thought I'd mentioned here but haven't. Some weeks after Pernod went to The Bridge, I got a letter from a vet school in Saskatchewan, saying that Pernod's vets in Edmonton had donated money on her behalf, to do research. I thought tht was so thoughtful of them, and nice to know that something was done in Pernod's name!

    Thanks again, guys. I so miss her :(
