      It is with great sadness that I have to let you all know that Pippi passed away peacefully in his afternoon sleep, I’ve just come downstairs to a distraught Jenny. 

      No doubt Pippi is reunited with Rusty on the other side of the rainbow bridge by now, Poor Jenny is inconsolable, she won’t let me touch her…. 

      Pippi would have only been just over four and a half years old, still far too young…

      Oh, no, GJ! I’m shocked to read this. Pippi was way too young. I don’t understand it =( Poor Jenny!

      Sweet, friendly little peacemaker Pippi, I hope you’re binkying free with Rusty now.

      I’m sorry for your sudden loss. I relate to Jenny’s being inconsolable. I remember holding on to my little girl for hours. No one could pry her from my arms, until I was ready to give her away. Pippi was way too young. I suppose the smallest silver lining was that it was peaceful in his sleep. But along with bam, I just don’t understand it.

      In my thoughts.

      poor jenny is looking all over for pippi, in spite of being left with the body for a while.
      she has finally calmed down a little and has just come over asking for head rubs…

      Ohhhh…inconsolable rabbit (Jenny). Sorry. I haven’t been a member long enough to know who is who and who is what. When you said inconsolable and not letting you touch her, I immediately pictured a young girl (a human Jenny) not letting you touch the rabbit (Pippi). But Pippi is a boy. Maybe suconsciously since Pippi was the rabbit I assumed Gina and Jenny were the two human bunny guardians. And because of the way I reacted with my bunny I jumped to the same conclusion. Regardless, I let my mind cruse on autopilot and misinterpret the whole scene. Sorry.

      Still immensely sorry for your loss of Pippi. Just wanted to apologize for not knowing or paying attention to what I was talking about and commenting so ridiculously. Embarrassed to be so careless at such an emotional time for you.

      No need to apologise, I realised your mistake and kind intentions and was just grateful for the kind support
      The username Gina Jenny comes from when I joined, as I joined when I took on two totally feral sisters my sons and I caught abandoned shortly after Easter three years ago. Jenny was bonded to a very gentle Pippi who lost his bonded bun friend shortly after I took the girls on. Jenny nearly died of hypothermia post spay, it was only snuggling into Pippi’s warm safe side that pulled her through, and Pippi was definitely her knight in shining armour and she was so glad after living wild to have such a big brave knight to keep her feeling safe and protected. He was probably one of the gentlest bunnies the forum has ever had too, and she welcomed his calming presence as she recovered from the ordeal of living feral. Gina was later bonded to another rescue, a boy called Podge, who likewise helped her recover from living feral, and I then adopted a third boy girl pair, Minstrel and Snickers, plus we have Latte our sole surviving Guinea pig. So a complex household, easy for even long standing members to confuse, and you are far from the first x

      Heartbroken (VB) tinged with comfort that for Pippi at least it was peaceful and the death you’d ask for any bun, though preferably at at twice the age he was. He was curled up just as he used to as a baby bun and looked so much like his baby self asleep, at least it is a nice final image to hold onto. It’s midnight, just been down to check on poor Jenny, she just doesn’t know what to do with herself…

      Went down to check on poor Jenny, yes I know it’s stupid o’clock in the morning, to find poor Gina trying to wash the black spots off Podge’s back. That’s something she hasn’t done for around two years, so I’m guessing she’s affected too. Jenny still doesn’t know what to do with herself but has just taken a sprinkling of pellets. Will be struggling not to over treat her over the next few days, but I can’t, not given her tendencies to need gas drops occasionally, as the last thing she needs is an upset tum right now.

      Jenny accepted maybe two minutes of head rubs this morning, then snarled…

      Accepting a sprinkle of pellets and two minutes of head rubs sounds very hopeful. And snarling does sound like classic Jenny.

      Rusty and Pippi experiencing sunshine and grass for the first time in their baby bun lives. The air was fresh and got up baby bun snozzles, making little snozzles sneeze, but they loved being out, Late Winter/Early Spring 14

      Thank you for being understanding and helping me to not feel like such a dolt. And thanks for the brief history to get me up to speed. Saw the video…it’s amazing how fast time goes, in general, let alone with the bunnies. Their lives are so short relative to ours. Of course every bunny is special and precious, but every so often an extraordinary one shows up. It sounds like Pippi was one of those. I notice bam called him the “little peacemaker”. It would have been such a pleasure to have met the little “Master of Gentleness”.

      You and your whole crew are in my thoughts.

      He truly was the little peacemaker and master of gentleness. There are not many boy buns you could put an unfamiliar, recently spayed doe with without worry, but he was one, and he literally lay still and let her cuddle into him and heal over several days. Needless to say the tastiest of treats found their way under both noses at regular intervals during that week, which might have helped a little! Pippi loved his food. And he loved being outside in the garden.

      I’m so very sorry for your loss. And sorry it took me so long to see this. We are in mourning together. It’s so hard to love a bunny so much. Big (((((hugs)))) to you.

      You are right in that he had the most peaceful death. That is what I was hoping for my Bindi but not how it happened.

      I am so sorry to hear this news. Heartbreaking. Lots of sweet thoughts of Pippi and hopeful prayers during Jenny’s time of grieving. She must feel very much the same way you do right now and I know you’ll give each other what you both need to get through this difficult time. Binky free, Pippi.

      Such a beautiful bunny Pippi was.

      I know, it’s really hard to look at pics. I want to find some nice pics of Bindi to print and put in my Memory Journal (I always write in the journal special memories, quotes etc after a bunny passes and include pics) but I haven’t been able to bring myself to do it yet. Still haven’t for Sterling either.

      It took me about 2 years to finally feel ready to do this for Bunston. I’m glad I waited until I was ready, because it filled me with nice memories of him, rather than being depressing. When the time is right you’ll do it!

      It’s only Pippi, the grey bun, thats pssed, the others are all alive and well, even Jenny, his bonded bun seems to be coping better than I expected. I think It helps she has two pairs of buns near her 24/7…

      Losing Pippi has bought Rusty back to mind, we bought Rusty and Pippi home together as 10 week olds, sadly Rusty died at less than two years old from a retrobulba mass, which was heartbreaking. I had just taken Gina and Jenny on then, two ferral juveniles, presumably dumped after Easter, as our local RSPCA was already at full rabbit capacity and literally had nowhere to put them and begged us to keep them. I won’t be getting another bun to bond with Jenny though, Jenny will have to manage with the other four through the bars for company. Jenny was in a bad way back then, and needed so much care that I didn’t have time to grieve properly for him, and its almost like the grief for Rusty is really only now fully coming out, along with the grief for Pippi

      Sorry to hear that your having some Rusty issues along with the loss of “The Peacemaker”. Love his nicknames. But I must say you have some really wonderful pics of the crew. Thank you for sharing. Those are absolutely great photos. The “picture is worth a thousand words” definitely applies.

      In my thoughts…
