I hope everyone is having a nice holiday. Here’s what my Christmas looked like when we gathered all the wrapping paper in a huge pile and set the baby rabbits loose to play. Distributing pictures of bunnies frolicking in holiday paper is a fairly good method of contributing more joy to the world, I would say. I only hope Butler’s mascot Blue II had as good time as my pet rabbits Beezus and Ramona this holiday.
The rabbits pose for their glamor shots.
The entire family gathered around and took pictures and pictures of the rabbits. Of course, I did not want to use my flash, and the bunnies kept jumping around, so out of the 244 pictures I took, I kept 33. Those thirty-three? Soooo cute.
Nadolig Llawen and Joyuex Noël and Frohe Weihnachten and Maligayang Pasko and so on… Happy holidays!
This summer, our beloved rabbit passed away. I still don’t like to talk about it much, but there is some new, exciting news on the lagomorph front:
BABY BUNNIES!!! OMGoodness to the ^n!!1!!!1!1!
Ramona and Beezus
After the Homecoming game on Saturday, I saw I had fifteen missed messages and two voicemails–all but one rabbit-related. We had been talking about getting another rabbit, and I asked my family to wait until November so I didn’t miss the cute baby, short-nosed stage (since I’ll go home for Thanksgiving). But they just could not hold out, and one can hardly blame them. Look at those faces.
Ramona is a blue-grey Netherlands Dwarf, and Beezus is the fluffy lionhead. They are named after the characters from the Beverly Cleary novels. Wonderful books. Wonderful bunnies.
Incoming college students, I’ll telling you now: You will miss your pets. Horribly. It definitely helps to have a family willing to send you picture after picture (after picture…). I even have some video. It’s a bit crazy actually. And now I have even more reason to look forward to Thanksgiving break: There will be two new family members to love.
