Monday Bunday


It had simply been too long, I had to just grab Sydney to clip her nails. The last time it had been nail clipping time I did Tyler first and he, evidently, told Sydney and she went into evasive action. Since she doesn't like to petted, though she likes to be fed treats and she will put her paws on my knees and give me bumps, I decided to play a waiting game. I didn't want to betray her trust, but being a responsible bunny slave carries hard choices, and I grabbed her while she was eating a treat. She got her nails clipped with a minimum of fuss and even got brushed, even though she doesn't show shed lines, the amount of fur that transferred itself to my clothing told another tale. I have to say she is solidly built, round and firmly packed, quite unlike her brother who is light as air and elf-like.


Tyler is easier, he will present for petting and act surprised when lifted, but can settle down. Though both buns wouldn't speak to me for hours. Sydney refused an apres event apple treat, but Tyler gobbled his in my lap. Tyler is pictured as if in jail because he was a bit bad, though I think he is very cleaver. While boyfriend was on the phone in the living room talking to his sister in Maine, Tyler snuck into the study, climbed on a chair, navigated some books, found a four inch segment of unprotected phone cord and CHOMP ! ! ! ! Can't we harness this amazing sixth sense for the greater good ???

Enjoy your week everybun.

Tyler sure has well-honed 'hunting' skills! Bunnies seem to have an in-built radar for destruction.. Just this morning, when I got into the office, I realised there were 2 holes on the strap of my work bag! I always make sure that I put everything out of the bunnies reach.. but yet they managed to get to the bag without me knowing! I wonder when the crime was committed!

Bad, bad bunny! How clever of you to give your mum something so funny to blog about and a way to let everyone to come up with such clever comments. Coincidence? I think not!
Happy Bunday Monday kids!

Oh bunnies can be so bad, chewing things like that! Anya chewed through the tv cable once while my partner was watching a film, she chewed shoes, books and a brand new organic sheet.....

One day I shall take pics of everything that has been nibbled by Miss Eve. Hugo, on the contrary, is the (almost) perfect housebun. I love reading about your bunnies - and I really must do a special post on my blog you-know-what-about, soon, hopefully by friday...

He had to really work at getting to that cord! Such talent must be useful for something!

Glenna said...

I always wonder if those cords give off an annoying buzz or energy, because the buns sure seem to like to sever them.

Funny story (although maybe not really). It's a good thing pets are endearing and cute - self-preservation to counter our desire to do them in when they behave so badly.
