Ok guyz sorry but since my Mum is gone in Tucson visiting her family and where i used to live i am having a hard time doing posts by myself. I confess, she does help me a little. So it's taken me a while but I finally figured it out and here I am ... back and crazy as ever!
Hope everyone had a great Christmas.
And we're gonna party crazy here at the kennels and warren since Mum is gone. no barkers - Big Dumb Puppy aka O'Reilly got to go wrestle with cactus in Tucson, Lakota is at Aunt Diane's and Betsy is with Aunt Janay's Mum and Dad for the holiday. So bunnies and bunny friendly critters have free roaming here!
Have a whatever you do for New Year's Eve! I hear Mum is going to play the Killer Bunnies card game! It's her favorite.
We will have extra hay, tons of yummy strawberry yogurt drops (my new favorite), fruits and nuts and i have lots of toys. We can even watch Wallace and Gromit and the Curse of the Were - Rabbit!

The other day The Fluffies over at Diva Kitty and the Fluffies and Winnie over at NC Bunny tagged us for a meme of 5 random things about me.
Finally I have a chance to do this and I suppose I'll let the other bunnies share some facts too!
But Me first!
2. I don't like other bunnies!
3. I grunt and charge at people a lot but don't bite.
4. Well ok, I bit my Mum twice but only cuz she petted the neighbor dogs and i didn't like the smell.
5. I don't have a tail. I don't know why, i just don't
1. I am a Netherlands Dwarf bunny. I don't know what that means but that's what I am!
2. I have lost 2 husbuns to doggie accidents.
3. I like living outside but prefer the indoor life.
4. I like having house privileges and waking my mom up when she's in bed
5. Right now I have to live in my enclosure because of O'Reilly, or as Archi Ann calls him Big Dumb Puppy.
1. I'm the cutest dutch bunny ever.
2. Oops, Archi says I can be the cutest MALE dutch bunny ever
3. I like to snuggle and lick my Mom on the neck.
4. I want to be friends with Riena but she doesn't want to be friends with me.
5. I don't mind the dogs at all and let them sniff me and lick me.
Archi here again and I AM THE CUTEST DUTCH BUNNY EVER! Just to clarify that!
Thanks for tagging us. I will tag anyone who wants to play!

Well I'm not super happy about my blog getting taken over by the woofies again but I am happy about the news...
Betsy has a new Mom! Mum met her today and really likes her and she wants Betsy. She will take her after the holidays. She has another dog and likes to go camping and up to her cabin in the mountains. Betsy is going to have a very good life!
We are all very happy for her, though Mum and O'Reilly will miss her. The cool thing is she lives in the neighborhood so she will be close!
So tonight we celebrated and Mum let them have one of their Christmas presents early.
I will be back to blog my top 5 from DKM's tag tomorrow! But we did have to share this awesome news!

Riena here! I've commandeered the blog! I think Archi hogs all the fame and after she took off when I wasn't done commenting on the Bible fiasco I decided to figure out how to blog myself.
I don't really have much to say. I just wanted to say hi to everyone! Mom let me out to play and the doggies did real good. She kept me on her lap but he didn't try to catch me or anything! O'Reilly has really mellowed out with me, though Mom says he's still not ready for me to go mobile 24/7. I can't wait till he is though, I miss waking up Mom in the middle of the night hopping on the bed.
Well I better get outta here before Archi catches me!

Hello there all my fur-riends and human bloggers too! My Mum told me about a tragic incident at the kennel/warren/chaos this weekend and being the concerned Bun that I am I wanted to get some opinions on it.
I'll save my opinion for last!
Here's the issue. Mum woke up Saturday to find her Bible, her friends copy of "Cesar's Way" by Cesar Millan and another friends' book cover all chewed up by the new foster puppy, Betsy. She knows it was Betsy cuz the other pups don't chew stuff like that but stick to their own stuff.
Mum says it's ok because Betsy is still learning how to live in a pack and in a house. Everything is new to her and she needs to learn what is ok and what isn't. So she's not upset at Betsy though she is very sad about losing a good chunk of the Bible her best friend gave her for her 30th birthday.
I wanted to find out what the Buns around thought about it - I'm not interviewing the dogs here because I'm sure they'd stand up for Betsy.
Riena, what do you think about this issue with Betsy chewing the Bible and other books?
Mphf - that's just silly, obviously she can't read so why would she try to chew a book? I smelled beef ribs cooking the other night so I'm sure she gets plenty of those!
And Zinger - as a Dutch bun like me, and naturally extremely intelligent, what is your take on this?
Oh my goodness, I can't eat! That's just ridiculous. I would never do that! Take away this bunny crack Mum - I can't even look at it. I've lost my appetite!
(mum wants me to note that Zinger STILL has not eaten the bunny crack)
As for me, Archi Ann, smartest animal in this family, I'm appalled! Granted, while mum had me in the house roaming free before Big Dumb Puppy (the first one O'Reilly) came, i never chewed a book! Well, okay, maybe i did, but only the spines, I would never ruin the insides. Well, sigh, I guess the covers were quite tasty too but never more than that! Well... sometimes, oh nevermind! At any rate I can't understand my Mum's attraction to those dumb dogs when they go and do stuff like this.
Hrumph, i'm disturbed. Excuse me I need to go away for awhile!
Hey Archi - where ya goin? is this camera still on? I'm not done...
What do YOU think?!

Well since Mum is so distracted by the new foster doggie I can't do a Monday Bunday post because she hasn't taken time to take a new picture of ME or any of my warren mates!
I like this picture of Betsy, even though it's blurry, because it shows her face the way she really is - HAPPY. she's a very happy dog, not the sad faced pup in the other pics.
OH, if you live in Southern California and would love a German Shepherd/Rhodesian Ridgeback mix girl let us know - we're taking adoption applications! She's a great dog, very EASY compared to Big Dumb Puppy!

Captain Rupert tagged me for a Five Favorites Meme.
Five Favorite Songs:
I kinda don't like music - mum listens to real weird stuff. but i like when she listens to Johnny Cash and Roger Miller. I can live without the hard music though. How can they even call that music?
Five Favorite Toys:
I like my pillows - not really toys but they're great. Keep me cozy and happy. And mum has this ball that torments me. She puts treats in it and I have to push it around to get the treats out. Very annoying! just put the treats in my bowl - geez.
Five Favorite Activities:
Grunting and charging the dogs, other bunnies and anyone else around, including mum sometimes.
oh and Eating
Five Favorite Bad Habits:
Sorry but I don't have any bad habits, i'm just misunderstood. Sure I started pulling up the carpet but mum says the landlord bought tile to put down and they just haven't done it. So i'm helping by pulling up the carpet. And the baseboards, well they're boring! They need some bumps and curves and design in them. But now that I'm outside I don't do those things! I love my outdoor enclosure!
Well I don't have a picture to post, mum has been hogging the camera to take pics of the foster girl Betsy. She is very shy but she can't stay that way here. It's too crazy with all these animals here and around.
Here's a pic of her and O'Reilly...

This is Betsy and she is being pulled from the same shelter/pound that O'Reilly came from. Tomorrow night Mum is bringing her into our kennel/warren/chaos to foster her! She is a Ridgeback mix and could possibly be from the same backyard breeder as OR!
Mum is only going to FOSTER HER (right mum?!!!). There are actually several people that want to adopt her. Her looks belie her personality. After meeting her Janay said:
OR has the same bedroom eyes thing going on. Mum can't wait to meet her... I'm not convinced!

Sorry I haven't posted for a while but mum's been hoggin' the puter.
Here is a great shot of Zinger's tocks for you
And an illustration of a great way to put your bean's old college Calculus text to good use... a monitor riser. I don't understand why they have to go to school, we bunnies just know all of it.

Archi's Mum here. Pleased as punch to announce that Riena is safe and back in the house, in her house.
I did what I hate to do, but was better than leaving her out on her own. I locked the pups in the house and stuck a hose in the down under and flooded it. She came out, we played a short game of slow chase ... i walk slowly behind her and wait for her to hide behind something and then pick her up.
She'd never admit it but I think she's happy to be back in.
Once the puppy is more calm around the bunnies (he is getting better in spite of anything Archi Ann might say) I'll make her a house rabbit again. She was really good as a house bun, waking me up in the morning, doing bunny 500s and binkies in the living room!
And Archi got some time in her run today again. You can see her behind Cinnamon's ear :-)
Thanks all for your encouragement. I will finally sleep well now that my girl is back in!

So Mum is letting me have time in my enclosure again - yippee! It's so nice to be outside. She let me be out all afternoon and evening Saturday until the sun went down. Then she made me come back inside, which I must say I was none too happy about. But she promises to let me back out again after she gets home from church Sunday. She said she doesn't want me out when she can't supervise me. Well, it's not me that needs supervision, it's that dumb puppy. He'll be calm and just lay down and watch me but then every so often he gets too excited and starts pulling on the fence. I suppose Mum knows best. She's actually very proud of how that dumb puppy did today. It took him a little while but he finally started to settle down and she says that's a good sign.
Oh I guess he has a name, it's O'Reilly. But I think dumb puppy works just fine for me.
Here's a picture of him with his new stuffed toy Mum bought him, a Ladybug. Stuffed toys, how silly! I'd rather have treats!

Apparently Riena is not making it easy for Mum to catch her and get her in the house. Silly bunny. She's spending her days hiding in the tunnels under the shed that Luther dug for them and coming out at night to forage. This morning she was out and let Mum give her some veggies but when Mum tried to catch her she was back to the downunder. Mum doesn't want her outside alone.
