The rare Lucy flop

As recently noted, you start to video one thing and the bunnies turn it into something else.

On the blog's Bunny Care/Resources page is a link to the post Bunny Care - H2O ... Shaken, not stirred. It's about another way to get more water in your bunnies - a very good thing that helps their complicated (and easily disturbed) digestive systems work. Basically, after you wash their greens, don't completely dry them ... leave them wet.

Lucy has just finished munching some moist greens and was grooming herself. It's cute and we love when they pull down their ears to clean them; we call this "talking on their ear phone". I was able to get a little of that but then she was finished and a Lucy flop was caught on video. Most often, Lucy walks her front feet forward until she's stretched out to relax; so beyond the fact that catching certain bunny actions on video is hard, this was even more rare.

Marlin Perkins and Jim Fowler would have been pleased to capture such video in the Wild Kingdom.


  1. I love it when they do that and I am doubley blessed as Speedy does that 1 all the time and 2 he even does it in my arms during a cuddle,xx Rachel

  2. Aww.. Lucy's trying to pacify her paparazzi. "Okay, if I flop maybe they'll leave me alone while I bathe next time! Sheesh, hoomans!"

    It must be very hard to be such an adorable dutchie princess.
