“Douglas”

Last night Douglas was on a digging spree. He started with the towel in his carrier and dug it out underneath him until it was out of the carrier. Then he backed up and continued digging it backwards under a cardboard box before ultimately stopping at his soft bed. He probably would have gone even further but there was a wall in the way. He’s always entertaining to watch, who needs TV? He’s heading home tonight but fortunately will be back this summer for more shenanigans!

“Hershey”

Douglas is a such carefree boy. Every time I or a family member goes near his pen, he gets very excited and jumps up and down. He might be expecting a treat, but seems satisfied with some petting. He’s quite content to sit there for as long as you’re willing to pet him for, something I’m not used to with my own male rabbits. Our girl Piper is always up for petting, but she’s large like Douglas. The bigger buns do tend to be cuddlier, but I know a few small rabbits who are extremely friendly!

Hershey is enjoying the living room sun today. When the sunbeam hit his Rex fur just right, you can see the many colors scrunched up along his short strands of fur. His coat isn’t just super-soft, it’s beautiful, even though he is in the middle of a shed right now. He’s a handsome boy, and boy does he know it!

“Douglas”

Douglas has spent a lot of time up on top of our coffee table. When he first arrived he chinned everything he could: the corners, the box on top, my laptop, my tray, my hand! He’s very territorial of HIS coffee table. Last night I had some ice cream, and since I usually use the coffee table as a table (silly me) I set the bowl down there. Seconds later Douglas jumps up and runs toward the bowl. He’s used to getting his food in a bowl, so he likely thought I had something for him. He overshot a little and wound up with some chocolate syrup on one of his low-hanging ears. I wiped it off with a tissue, but at least he didn’t go paws deep into ice cream!

“Douglas”

I had such nice couch snuggles with Douglas last night. He’s such a mush. He jumps on the couch effortlessly and plops down next to me like he’s a puppy. Then I get “the nudge” which in this case meant, “pet me!” and I’m always happy to oblige. Earlier in the day he did some bunny runs and boy was he loud! He seemed to be practicing for the Daytona 500. Lops always seem to have a little more power in their hindquarters than other buns and Douglas knows how to use his!

“Mason”

“Douglas”

We’re coming to the end of the week, and the end of both Douglas and Mason’s visits. There’s only a couple more days left to get couch cuddles, floor snuggles, table petting and foot dancing with these two big, beautiful boys. Douglas had settled in there right away, and is always up for a pet from anyone, but Mason took a little time to adjust. Sometimes he doesn’t want to be petted, but when he’s willing, he just melts into the ground like his sister Piper. I call them puddles of vanilla ice cream, just slightly furry.

“Mason & Piper”

“Douglas”

We brought my Piper downstairs to meet her littermate Mason this morning. She was a little more interested in checking out her surroundings than saying hello to Mason. He was certainly glad to see her as he doesn’t see as many other bunnies as she does. I don’t think they necessarily remembered each other, but they were happy to just say hello. It was interesting to see them next to one another and the difference in their bodies. Piper is a little fuller and Mason is longer. I still look at him and think that it’s my girl, but they are twins after all!

My Charlie stayed in my room for the duration because he was not interested. I don’t think the other boys downstairs knew what was going on. If Douglas had, he definitely would have wanted to come over and meet my girl. He certainly is a friendly guy.

Bunny Plucking Season

“Douglas”

“Mason”

Mason kept sniffing me when I went to visit him last night and was periscoping up to the couch. I told him that he was more than welcome to join me, but he didn’t want to. He did check out my remote, but I stopped him before he nibbled off any buttons.

Douglas is shedding a bit right now on his behind. I’m somewhat compulsive about plucking shedding bunny fur, which is good for the buns, good me, so win-win! I’ve plucked Douglas’s bottom three times since he’s been here, and there’s still more fur to go. He only lets me do it for so long before he gets up in a huff, but progress is progress!

Before I went to bed last night Douglas was sitting up on the coffee table and Mason was up on the couch. I think they were trying to see each other, or just get a better view of the living room.

Who’s That Sleeping in Your Bed?

“Mason”

“Douglas”

“Piper”

Yesterday Douglas decided that my foot was just as good for petting and he snuggled right under it. I obliged him, but I can’t imagine it was as good as a hand. While I cleaned Mason’s litter box last night, just outside of his pen, he just had to get a better vantage point to supervise from, so he jumped up onto the end table. That jump was effortless, and one that his sister Piper has also made.

I used to make Piper wait to come out of her pen until after Charlie had eaten his breakfast. Lately I’ve been letting her out before and they’re just sharing her breakfast. Last week she seized the opportunity and jumped up onto my parent’s bed. Problem was, they were both still in it, and both Piper and my dad freaked out a little. Then, this morning, she was doing runs and vaulted onto my bed, with me in it. I didn’t move, since it’s not the first time I’ve been run over by a rabbit, and eventually she hopped down. Then, 5 minutes later, she did it again. I guess she didn’t care that I was still up there, because there’s no way she could have forgotten that fast!

“Douglas”

“Mason”

When I opened up the plexiglass “window” between Mason and Douglas’s pens yesterday, Mason went right over to Douglas. He even stuck his nose into the fence, but he had to wait for Douglas to finish in the litter box. Once Douglas did come over, they looked at each other and then Douglas ran away. He came back, but this time he was on top of the coffee table. “I’ve got the higher ground!” Mason didn’t seem to mind.

Mister Mason seems to have allergies and I feel so bad for him. I have them to, so I know how yucky is can feel to be congested and sneezing a lot. I know I’m allergic to grass/hay but I take something for it so I’m okay. he seems to sneeze in his box, so maybe he is too. I don’t know if they make allergy meds for bunnies, but they totally should! I think my Bella had a slight allergy to something as she sneezed occasionally, and another bun I sat for also sneezes. It is adorable to see a bunny sneeze, but I imagine they don’t feel that way.

“Mason”

“Douglas”

My Piper’s littermate Mason is staying with us for the week. He looks just like her, but I can still tell them apart. He was a little shy when he arrived, which is just like Piper, but later he was chinning everything. He eventually let me pet him and snuggled down, just like his sister.

Douglas was eyeing the couch from the coffee table so I put a higher divider in front. The┬álast thing I want is bunnies getting out of their pens. With those big back feet of his, I know he’d have no trouble jumping high if he wanted to!
