Ethel racing around

Ethel was just in a happy race around mood. Caught the tail end on this video.

We call them the NASbunnies or the Buntona 500. Probably it's part fun and part instinct that as prey, they have to know their turf and multiple exit routes quickly if a predator appears... like a human to pick them up to brush them or, worse, take them to the vet.

Funny Bunny Monday Meme*day

There are so few good bunny cards (that are not for Easter). Wow - found an anniversary card! Got for Dr. Mrs. Bunnymom.

She gave it to me before I could give it to her. Yes, we both found the same card for each other.


Don't recall this happening since we bought the exact same watch as a wedding gift for each other (except I got her the lady's version and she got me the man's version).

Carving a "bunkin" (bunny pumpkin) for Halloween?
Here are a few "Boo! Bunnies" to inspire your creative carving...

Was this bunny in "Lord of the Rings" or something?

Don't forget "EB" - the Energizer Bunny

Bunnies home from their staycation

Took a long weekend away so the bunnies had a staycation at GHRS. They are not fans of car rides and Ethel seems the most traumatized by them.

When I picked them up, they all turned their backs and flipped me off (if you have bunnies, you know what this looks like... it's the bunny way of shooting you the "bird"). Talk to the butt because the bunny's pissed at you.

Huddled together in the carrier on the ride home.
Ears were shaking like leaves in a hurricane.
With their new rug came a new long tube
(in the center of the rolled up carpet).
Happy to see they didn't just hide at home,
but explored and played.
AFTER flipping me off as they exited the carrier. AGAIN.

You can see the prior rug tube
(bigger diameter) at the top of this picture.
They've chewed through parts and still love it.
When I went to let them out and feed them breakfast,
they seemed to have no problem remembering that
they get a morning papaya treat.
It looks like Lucy and Ethel are head-to-head
to see who will get groomed -
they are actually trying to snatch each other's papaya.

After the morning rituals,
Ethel, as usual, seeks the high ground.
This is the highest perch they can reach.

And there Ethel settled.















































And home is home again.

Ethel, she sleeps with the toys

Literally. We had just finished cleaning their pen and dumped out the little chew toys and cardboard tubes in a pile. Ethel made a little space for herself and flopped in the middle of them, laying against the tube.

Bunny Monday Meme*day



And the baseboards, the carpet, the furniture, the electric cords (phones, chargers, vacuum cleaner)....

Glass bunnies

Thanks to the gallery that let us take the pictures. Yes, yes, of course they had non-bunny art, but who cares? Sorry, I mean, it's the bunny art you will find posted here. No offense meant.

Bunny loving


We believe little Miss Ethel to be the most generous and loving of our bunnies. She is most likely to be grooming her bonded bunny buds. Lucy & Bunya. Here she is grooming Lucy on the cool bricks of the fireplace mantle; this is one of their ways to stay cool during summer (resting on the cool bricks).

Adopting a bonded pair is good for you and the bunny. Or you can try some speed dating with your bunny at your local bunny shelter with their bunny-whisperer. Bonded bunnies keep each other company and make for happier bunnies; they are less bored, which is a good thing for all involved. Lucy and Ethel were abandoned together on the steps of GHRS and have always been together. When looking for a bonded pal for Bunya, we ended up with a threesome instead, so that Lucy & Ethel did not have to be separated.
