Decatur Arts Festival Bunnies

Went to the Decatur Arts Festival, one of our favorite annual outings. Started to see bunny art and....

These artists have work that is other than bunnies, but in case you were not aware, this is a bunny blog. Thank you to these artists who allowed me to take pictures of their work. Their business cards are included below so if you like what you see, you can contact them and buy some bunnies! (Or check out their websites for other artworks).

We again saw John Hung Ha. We have seen him at prior art festivals (click this link to see some of his art) and I want to tell you a quick story. We purchased one of his pieces and he also kindly donated one of his pieces to the GHRS annual auction. Well, I started to really want the donated piece but did turn it over to GHRS to auction. I ended up in a bidding war over it. Bottom line: I did not get it but he helped a lot of bunnies with his generosity.

Today, there was a smaller version and now we have our own.

Forgot to take a picture this time,
so I hope this is still current.

Here's the picture of him from today, with more bunny art!

Incredible! The other statue next to it was a cat.
They looked like they were "high fiving".
Even got one of the
cards with a bunny.

There were even vendors selling bunny ice cream!

Memorial Day

Hi, there. Bunya here.
Here are some holiday rules and cautions:
Don't drink and drive.
Don't text and drive.
Don't drink and text (you can get in a lot of trouble).
When boating, wear a big orange life vest (you humans look so funny in those).
Play with your bunnies and give them lots of treats!

Have a safe & wonderful holiday weekend!

And thank the members of the armed forces, past and present,
that we have the freedom to celebrate.

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day! Especially to all the bunny mommas (and daddies).

If they are lucky, they come from the rescue shelter.

GHRS rescued bunnies: Zazzle (the Mommy) and babies

Zazzle and babies seemed appropriate to include on Mother's Day.

Bunold Thump in 2016!

and I'm going to make the humans pay for them!
It's gonna' be great!"

Ethel frustrating limitation - the gate

Ethel has the heart of an explorer and the elusiveness of Houdini (we call her Bundini). Here, she is at one of her usual haunts, the gate that is one limit to their territory. I'd wager she's nibbling the bars. She has been the mastermind of earlier escapes (as documented in this blog), but so far, this gate has frustrated her mightily.
Sorry, Ethel.

Bunya can tell time, when it's important

I don't know how, but I swear Bunya can tell time. That has been asserted here before.

Their favorite treat, a Probios is served (for whatever reason) at 9pm. If I miss the time, Bunya will stare at me from the floor, using his mind meld to communicate his message. If I am too absorbed in my book, then he hops up on the sofa next to my recliner, where I have to see him, and repeats the stare.

It works.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Treats are in the hand of the human.

Bunny Potter

Bunya is shedding. Sometimes, he sports a little chevron that migrates from his nose up his face. This time, a "lightning bolt" just appeared.

I keep waiting for him to wave around an apple-wood stick and emit "Treatsium maximus!"

Realize that if you adopt a bunny, you may never again eat a banana alone.

P.S. Bunny care: Bananas are a treat only. A portion is a small amount, like half a thin slice, the size of a fingernail.

Table for One, or Ethel sneaking some pellets

Bunya is on an all hay diet to make sure he's on the road to recovering from his recent stomach blockage. This will likely be his future forever diet.

Well, that means poor little Miss Ethel is on an all hay diet, too.

But I try to sneak her some pellets when Mr. B is not around. In this case, Bunya was off in the hay cube box and Ethel was playing in their cardboard "warren" under the kitchen table. Ethel now knows that if I tap on a certain door, I am prepared to offer her some pellets or a treat Bunya can't have.

When this video starts, Ethel has finished the first course of pellets but is still hanging out hoping for more. Of course, I caved in and provide more pellets for her surreptitious enjoyment (about 20-ish seconds in). Still love watching bunnies chew.

Vegetable gardens and farms ravaged!
Buildings chinned to the ground!
Bunny poops the size of a Volkswagen!

I think we've got another blockbuster on our hands.

Bunya's mid-day meds

This was when Bunya had to take a mid-day dose of his meds. We've cut back to twice a day now. Anywho, I would run home from the office, zoom in to draw the meds and dose him through his pen fence. He was so excited he'd be jumping on the fence. He knew - a treat follows. Then I dashed back to work.

Funny Bunny Thursday Meme

So true...

The human grooms

When there's that one little tuft of hair sticking out of his cheek and you just have to snag it. And the treat is so good, he lets you. (Mr. Bunya winks at me. Twice.)
