Mine.

River doesn't understand why bunnies can't have shoes of their own, so she's commandeering this pair until further notice.
Thanks for visiting the blog and we hope you all have a great weekend!  We'll be back with more bunny cuteness on Monday.

It's all good!

After last night's scare, the bunnies won't be taking their health for granted anymore.  Given this new lease on life, it's all about the snuggles!

Update: Feeling better!

Does the little human give you yucky medicine too, mirror bun?
This is the place Simon would retreat to every time I gave him medicine or force-fed him.  He got progressively closer to mirror bun (and harder to extricate) with each passing dose to the point he attempted to pass through the looking glass by merging with his reflection.
Simon:  If I close my eyes hard enough, maybe the little human will go away.
River:  She's still here.  Hey, little human--you said I could come out and play after you were done with whatever you just did to Simon!
This pic pretty much captures the level of stink-eye River leveled at me for giving Simon medicine (which she discovered the hard way by cleaning his face and tasting it).
At this point, I was very worried about Simon because his ears were feeling cooler than normal (shock).  I set him on a heating pad (LOW setting) and wrapped him in his favorite purple towel to help stabilize his body temperature.
After getting Simon's temperature more regulated, I uncovered him so he could move freely if he wanted to (left the heating pad on low).  River wouldn't leave his side, gave him an ear hug and promptly fell asleep like this for the next hour.
At this point, I had the opportunity between giving Simon belly rubs and checking his ear temperature to review every article and link I had on rabbit GI stasis and bloat.  I was also going through every local exotic vet and emergency vet in the vicinity and ranking them by when they opened and how quickly I could get Simon there if I needed to.
This makes me a happy bunny caretaker!  Simon is eating on his own and has gone #2 (not even mad that it isn't in his litter box).
I had force-fed the little guy some pellet-flavored water (pellets aren't keen on staying in solution) at 2:30am and gave more tummy rubs.  He finally started to look more alert and even started cleaning a bit.  By around 4am I had coaxed him back into his cage and managed to get him to eat a mouthful of oats and some hay! 
I stayed up until 6am monitoring his progress and presenting every type of food in the house that was bunny-safe in hopes of him eating a bit more.  Took a short nap and captured this shot around 10am.  What a relief!
Thank you to everyone who sent their well-wishes!

Sick bun.

Sorry guys, I'm taking care of Simon right now (possible GI stasis) so I'll try to give you a real post later on and let you know how he's doing.

Bunny condolences.

Our condolences to the family and friends of those who lost their lives in yesterday's Munich shootings.  We wish the injured a speedy recovery.  We also wanted to thank the first responders, police, military and those who worked in the local hospitals that helped to save the lives of the injured.  Our thoughts are with you.

Does this look regal enough?

Simon wants to be ready when he accepts the BUN Party's nomination for President.
Thanks for visiting the blog and we hope you all have a great weekend!  We'll be back with more bunny cuteness on Monday.

Little bouncy bun.

River wasn't sure if she wanted to do her happy feet dance or binky, so she did both!  She ended up prancing in place.  Silly little munchkin!

In training.

River makes one giant leap for bunkind while training for the spacebun program.  She is eagerly awaiting the moon base that was promised by the humans decades ago.
On a more somber note...
Our sincerest condolences to the family and friends of those who lost their lives on Bastille Day in Nice, France.  We wish the injured a speedy recovery and would like to thank the police and military personnel for their help in keeping people safe and to the first responders and local hospital workers for helping save the lives of the victims.  Our thoughts are with you.
We'll be back on Monday.

Being sneaky.

Despite his best efforts, Simon couldn't get into trouble because the baby gate wasn't what was blocking all the cool stuff behind the new entertainment center.  A huge bag of litter stood in his path, thwarting his sneaky attempt at mischief!  He then had to suffer the indignity of trying to hop backwards without knocking the gate over.  Reverse is not Simon's friend.

River makes a new friend.

She doesn't know why this mirror bun looks a bit different, but that's okay!  Many a bunny kiss was given to her new friend.  We'll just have to add 'entertainment center' to the list of reflective surfaces we need to de-bunny-hork.

Bunny magic!

With some clever sleight-of-fluff, Simon made his ears disappear!  For his next trick, he's going to use his powers of cuteness mind control to get the little human to give him a tummy rub and treats.

You protected and served.

Our sincerest condolences to the family, friends, and fellow officers of those killed in Dallas last night.  We also wanted to thank the officers of Dallas for protecting the protesters by helping them get to safety as well as the EMS personnel and those in surrounding hospitals who worked to help save the lives of the officers under their care.  Our thoughts are with you.

It's hard to tell, but...

Simon and River can hardly contain their enthusiasm knowing that it's Friday.
Thanks for visiting the blog and we hope you all have a great weekend!  We'll be back with more bunny cuteness on Monday.

All mine!

After chinning all the flaps and a generous coating of bunny hork, I think we can safely say that the comfy box belongs to Simon now.

It's all about perspective.

Human, did you know you are upside-down?
Being deaf, I think River pays much closer attention to her surroundings than other bunnies.  Sometimes, I'll notice her flopped like this and just looking around the room in wonder.

Be cool.

Simon would like you to say hello to his little friend, Mr. Frozen Water Bottle.  He is super cool and makes those around him cool too!

All in a day's work.

Simon demonstrates bunny work-life balance.
(No sound on this one, so feel free to play it whenever you need a bunny pick-me-up!)
