|Grooming - showing love and affection among bonded bunnies.|
Which is not to say that there isn't the occasional hair-pulling,
if alpha bunny needs to reaffirm the pecking order.

The Bunmuda Triangle
Here's a (too long) video showing how lucky Bunya is - the girls take turns grooming him. A real groom-fest.
This is to be distinguished from when a human wants to groom them, for which they express a different sentiment, succinctly demonstrated here by Bunya.
(The wire part of the brush Bunya grabbed is not used on the bunnies - it is too harsh for their delicate skin. The soft bristle side is for them, along with the furminator.)
Of course, grooming is most evident if you have a pair of bonded bunnies. (Otherwise, you have to rub their little heads for them.) If you have a single bunny, think about having your local HRS chapter or other rabbit rescue arrange some dates for your bunny. Remember: You don't pick their mate - they do (make sure everyone has already been "fixed" and has healed). If you are thinking about adopting a rescue bunny, forget the dating process and just adopt a bonded pair - that's the easiest.
