View Full Version : Our Darling Dutchess

19-10-2004, 09:53 PM
It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that our beautiful
girl has left us :cry: She went into a deep sleep this afternoon only
to wake up at the Rainbow Bridge. We are heartbroken :cry:

Our beloved Dutchess had been so very brave this year with her bad
leg but even having the leg removed did not take away her spirit
she lived for her Duke and he lived for her. What will our Duke do
without his dear old Dutch now?

We can honestly say, with hands on hearts, that our darling big girl
had been so very happy here she had that little spat where
accepting the amputation gave us cause for concern but she bounced
right back and when she came into the house to stay forever, she
thrived. We have wonderful pictures of our darling girl in her
usual upside down pose with her teeth showing we always said that
she was smiling on these pictures.

One of our slippers has now gone to sleep and one of our old codgers
had left us Duke and Dutchess where always known as a pair of
slippers or the old codgers. Please send vibes that our darling boy
Duke can get through this and continue his fight against this awful

Kisses to all the bunnies and a special kiss to our Angel Dutchess

You gave Duchess a wonderful home and bestowed her with love, compassion and kindness, what more could a bunny want for.

Sorry to here about Dutchess. Her and Duke made a beautiful pair. I hope he's coping ok, I'm sure your giving him plenty of nose rubs but add a few extra from me :)

I am so sorry to hear you have lost your lovely Dutchess. Poor Duke, it is so sad when one bunny goes over the bridge and leaves a companion behind. I am sure she will watch over him and he will have lots of extra nose rubs from you both. Hope he recovers from his abcess, they are nasty things. Sending vibes his way for a full recovery.

I am sorry for this late response (catching up with reading many posts)

I am really sorry to hear about Dutchess, what a beauty and such a character, a very special regal lady. My heart goes out to you and Duke.

Your website always brings a smile to my face, especially when I feel down in the dumps. You bring out your buns characters (that your photo's clearly show) that truely shows that you are a very muched loved lady. Your love and dedication is a real credit to you Jaypot

I am so sorry Jay to hear this sad news about your Duchess. We are all thinking about you and lots of cuddles to Duke

Love from

Poor Duchess.
Another newcomer to the bridge is my Heidi. She is very nice and will no doubt share her rose and carrot that daddy buried her with. Now both of you go find some dandelions and bask in the sun.
*no gossiping about Jay and I though! I know what these does are like.... :lol:

:cry: Sorry for this late response as just catching up with postings but I am so sorry to hear your news Jay - Big bunny hugs coming to you, John and the Hairy mob you must miss your girlie terribly.

Big Big Nose Rubs coming for Duke and I hope Duchess is binkying free basking in the warm sunshine with Heidi and the many other loved bunns.

Thinking of you
