“Mason”

Mason was so peppy yesterday, running all over his pen and jumping on the couch. He still won’t go up there when I’m sitting on it. I think he has in the past, and I know his sister Piper does. He just wants to have the couch to himself I guess.

Douglas enjoys making a mess. Today he even knocked over his pellet bow and I had to scoop them back in. He said he would have been fine eating them off the floor though. He’s going home tomorrow and little Duffy has gone home today. After Mason departs in a few days, we’ll have some girl power when a pair of ladies arrive. My boys will happy to have some more girls in the house.

“Duffy”

Duffy always puts his head down for petting when I come in his pen. He jumps up from wherever he was sleeping and runs over to the fence to greet me as well. “Hi there! You’re my best friend now!” I get nothing but love from this little guy. He’s so sweet and I’d adopt him myself in a heartbeat if I had the permanent space. If anyone is interested, check out his petfinder page before someone else scoops him up!

It seems like every bunny is my house right now is shedding. Yesterday alone I gave my Hershey and Douglas long grooming sessions. So much fur is flying! Hopefully it’s into the garbage and not into bunny’s mouths though. My Piper just got a good grooming too and she really hates it. Mason isn’t shedding too bad, but he has left a big white spot on the floor where he likes to lay. So I’ve been grooming the floor instead. I’ve been growled at, scratched, bitten and given “the bunny butt” but I’ll never stop on my quest to keep bunny tummies as fur-free as possible!

“Mason”

Douglas’ favorite thing to do now is to snuggle with the tissue box up on top of the coffee table. He’s got a great view from up there. It would probably be softer to snuggle with some actual tissues rather than the box, but he works with what he’s got. Mason’s high ground is on top of the back of the couch. Every morning and evening while he’s waiting to be fed, he perches up there. I always feed my boys in the dining room first, so he’s up there watching and waiting for me to get to the living room to feed him. “I’m hungry!”

Whenever I pet Duffy, he nudges his cute little head into my hand It’s a cuteness overload. I cannot believe someone hasn’t claimed this little guy to adopt him. He’s so friendly with my whole family and we’re complete strangers to him. He’s got the whole package: looks, personality and all his poop actually stays in the litter box. My own rabbits aren’t even that good!

Duffy is currently up for adoption from All About Rabbits Rescue. If you or someone you know is interested in adopting Duffy, check out his petfinder page!

Duffy is such a sweet little guy. The small ones aren’t always very friendly, but this little one is. He’s around 4-5 lbs I’d say, and as sweet as the caramel and chocolate swirls in his coat. Whenever I go into his pen to pet him, he puts his paws up on my leg to say hello. It’s hard not to want to give that cute little face a treat!

I’m not neglecting the other 5 rabbits in the house though. Everyone gets some petting time, though they’d probably all be fine with more treats instead! All of the visitors are great eaters, which is always appreciated. Mason and Douglas both put their paws up on the fence at mealtime and look just like begging puppy dogs. Love those big buns!

“Duffy”

I noticed that Douglas raises his ears when he’s cleaning them. It’s always odd to see a lop with their ears up, especially when they do it by themselves. An up-ears lop look like a totally different rabbit. It’s a good disguise should he ever need one!

When I was sitting with Mason last night, he came over by my feet and I assumed he wanted petting. After a little while of that he got up and started gnawing on the edge of the end table. There’s already a spot there that’s been eaten away so I don’t mind. He was chewing on that for like 15 minutes. I don’t know why he got the sudden urge, but that’s one good way to wear his teeth down!

Duffy bunny is back with us for the weekend. He’s such a friendly little guy and is also currently up for adoption from All About Rabbits Rescue. If you or someone you know is interested in adopting Duffy, check out his petfinder page!

Always Be Petting!

“Mason”

ABP: Always be petting. At least that’s Mason’s motto. If I’m petting him and I stop for a moment, he keeps nudging me until I start again. This big guy knows that he deserves my full attention, regardless of whatever else is going on. Douglas is a little less needy, but is perfectly content to jump onto the coffee table and start picking through my things if I’m paying more attention to my laptop than to him. He stuck his nose in my glass of water last night and took a few slurps. I just realized that I forgot to change it and kept drinking from it later on. Oh well, you’re healthy Douglas so I guess we can share a drink!

*CHINs* Your Stuff is Now Mine!

“Douglas”

Every day when I go into Douglas’ pen to hang out with him, he jumps up onto the coffee table and checks out the tray of stuff I bring in there with me. It’s mostly my phone, a drink, the TV remote, my laptop mouse and other various things that tote around the house to the various bunny pens. So far he hasn’t tried to chew on anything, but he does re-chin everything every day. I don’t think any other bunnies are chinning any of it, but I guess Douglas needs to let them know, that my stuff is now his stuff.

Mason is so very similar to his sister Piper in more than just their appearance. They’re both snuggling sweeties with great appetite and energy. Piper likes to jump on the beds upstairs, but usually not when someone is up there already, unless she’s waking you up to feed her. Mason jumps up on the couch in the living room, but never when I’m sitting on it. Today he waited for me to leave, then hopped up and sat there for a little while, taking in the view of the room.

How Big and Sweet You Are

“Mason”

Mason and Douglas are always happy to see me. They both run right over to the fence and put their paws up high. They’re probably looking for treats, but a pet on the head seems to suffice most of the time. I love having big sweet bunnies here. Douglas comes over and nudges my foot for some pets and so does Mason. If I’m in their pen and not petting them (as long as they aren’t busy) my job is to be petting. Both snuggle right down and are thrilled to be the object of my attention. If you’ve never considered adopting a big rabbit, this is my PSA: Get a big bunny, they’re the sweetest!

Rakin’ in the Bunny Fur

I groomed Douglas quite a bit yesterday. He’s a pretty good boy about it, but no bunny likes it when you’re plucking fur from their butt. My Piper really needs a good grooming right now. The floor upstairs is covered in her fur and her bottom is very shaggy. She’s incredibly fussy about it through so I’ll have to pick her up to do it.

Douglas is getting another roommate today and it’s my Piper’s twin brother Mason! I love the big white bunnies and I’m so happy to have Mason back. He’s sort of like my stepson and I hope he thinks I’m a fun stepmom and not an evil one. I guess all I have to do is give him lots of treats and I’m everyone’s friend.

Douglas always runs over to greet me, probably because he thinks he’s getting food. So far he hasn’t tried any sneak attacks to get any of my snacks, but he does jump onto the couch for pets and some light grooming. Usually bunnies will walk over my lap but Douglas jumps right over me. Since he’s a little on the larger side, I appreciate it. I’m used to my 9.5 lb girl Piper waking me up in the morning by jumping on my neck and face. That’s one wake up call that’s hard to miss!
