New office worker

As is customary, we try to make good use of the new buns in the office.  Here, the black bun is acquainting himself with the reservation pads.

Pen, check.  Cell phone, check.  Grooming appointment book, check.

Notice the snarky customer in the top of the picture.
  This job is not without it's perils.
His sister skipped orientation.  She eats too much and needed to sleep it off.

A show and John's birthday

John, the rabbits and I spent the day yesterday at a rabbit show.  We had awesome weather despite the forcast calling for snow earlier in the week.  The 2 hour drive was well worth it as Bunzilla took best of breed over the girls in show A.  He is pictured here first just hanging out waiting to be judged for best 4 class.  Although he didn't get it, he did get an honorable mention.  Not too bad for a 4 month old buck!

This is Mandie looking her finest.  She won best of breed in show B and went on to win best 4 class.  Yeah, Mandie!!

Here he is!  The birthday boy digging into his awesome cake!  It's great to celebrate another year of good living.  This was the best part of the day:)

Just a visit

Bunzilla was on his way for a beauty treatment and he stopped off to see his good friend Morty.  Got to love friendly cats and curious buns:)

"Wassup, Morty?"

What I WILL eat and what I WON'T eat

A note from Mandie:
 To whom it may concern,
 I will not eat carrots, broccoli, or craisins (as noted in the picture.)  However, I will eat lots of whole wheat bread, oats, and pellets.  Please make a note of that.

So much for a healthy eating lifestyle for this carbohydrate loving former California girl. She's embracing a midwest type of diet.
"What is this in my bowl?"

"You may give these to Bunzilla."

12 days old

I had hoped today would be the day that the buns opened their eyes but they decided not to.  Anyways, Here they are, cute as can be:)

A Big Win

Today at the Southern Ohio Rabbit Breeders Association rabbit show my new rabbit Mandie won best 4 class.  It was probably one of the most thrilling moments for me in rabbits.  Although I can't really claim the victory as I just got this rabbit from Betty Chu and I have not put in all the hours of grooming it was nice to be representing such a lovely, lovely rabbit.

5 days old

I am upgrading the status of my two peas in a pod to two fat butter beans.
This one reminds me of a little old fat man.

"I'm so full I can't roll over! Give me a hand, would ya?"

Oh Mandie!

Everybody, sing along with me to this classic Barry Manilow tune:

"Well, you came and you gave without takin'

But I sent you away, oh Mandy

well, you kissed me and stopped me from shakin'

And I need you today, oh Mandy"
Meet my version of Mandie-

This is John picking Mandie up from the airport.  There were lots of curious onlookers in the Delta cargo office and one of the ladies was kind enough to take this picture.  John loves his bunny duties:)

Unfortunately, I couldn't go with John to pick her up as I had to work.  Here I am taking a break to meet my new beauty, she's very squeezable.

Here's Mandie in her full glory.  Pretty as a post card, isn't she?  She is photographed with her first mom Betty who lives in California.  Betty's rabbits are like rare gems if you are lucky enough to have one.  I am hoping that Mandie will enjoy her new mid west lifestyle.

1 day old

Are those my babies?  After a disasterous start (Too Sexy pushed her babies out of the cage onto the floor) she decides she will take good care of them.

Two peas in a pod.  I have it on good authority that the dark one is a black.  I assume the pink one is a REW. 
Fat milk belly!  I will make a prediction that this one is a doe. 

I worried about this little fellow yesterday but after two good feedings I couldn't get him to cooperate he was so vigerous!  I predict this is a buck.

2 Bunnies:)

I am happy to report that Too Sexy had 2 buns today.  Looks to be one white and one color of a sort.  Keeping my fingers crossed that they are vigorous.
