Bunnyfest 2015 with Hoppy Hour & Agility Course

A huge THANK YOU to all the volunteers who make this event possible and wonderful -- and that rescue, rehabilitate, and find homes for abandoned and abused rabbits. Oh, and educate the public about proper bunny care and what wonderful pets they can be.

Check them out to adopt a bunny, read great bunny care articles or donate:

Cute buns everywhere... at Hoppy Hour (next section, below), on the agility course (further below), held by their humans, and in guest enclosures (so they could relax and their humans could mingle, too).


(Bunny Hipster)

This little bunny was in constant motion so I have a dozen
or more blurry pictures of him. All of a sudden, he plopped
down (one leg out back) to survey his domain. Guess he'd
already passed his business cards around to everybunny else.

If Cousin It was a bunny.

A first for GHRS. Looked like a huge success.
If you would like to see the bunnies in action, check out the videos herehere and here.

Lots of humans, too.
Lots of toys, litter boxes, mazes, tubes...

Bunny networking

Bunny butt!
Somebody was comfortable enough to flop.

Several bunnies looked for humans to pet them.
They had no problem being immensely successful in such endeavors.
As I said...

Bountiful bunnies
Friends were made.

Crowded - there were plenty of restrooms.
Was wondering if this nuzzling couple
was already bonded or just met.

"Hop on in -- the hay is fine!"
"That's good,...a little more to the right."

Looking for pets in all the right places
"Where'd you go?"

Willow leaves - treats!
And the human bouncers,
just in case anyone got overly aggressive.
Or affectionate.

Another first for GHRS. It was not like some tournament contest obstacles. The bar was low but the couple of bunnies I observed weren't sure what to do. Consequently, the gentle volunteer showing it to the bunnies and putting the buns through their paces is the one who got the most exercise. I hope her back is okay. Maybe next year, they can give her a little rolling stool so she doesn't have to bend over so much. The course looked like you could set up a few home-made imitations; depending on your bunny's personality, it would be something fun to do to bond with your bun. And I'm sure they would not mind getting a few reward treats.

Coming to the fulcrum, about to...

"Whoa, whoa, whoa - was that an earthquake?"

Over you go

"I did it!"

"What's this?"
"Hey, lady. this thing is moving!"
