Monday BunBumday;Rabboratory Report

Note foot,tail and glare positioning for maximum disapproval

After modeling for BunBumday Tyler went to work in the Rabboratory with Sydney and the Simple Assistant. As good fortune would have it the Spots were blessed with some Willow cuttings. As you know Willow wood  is a non-toxic chew favorite. It became quickly evident that the Simple Assistant was not, despite her supposedly superior digits, able to make anything close to a ball. After much discussion it was decided that balls and cubes were in a fact a "man" made shape and that these shapes were used not because they are particularly appealing to lagomorphs, but because it makes marketing easier. How could you get anyone to buy a Willow construction of unknown shape? Simply impossible to mass market. The Spots worked hard and came up with some interesting lagomorph centered constructions. These will be dried as the hardened work will give teeth more of a workout and once hard they will be less likely to spring apart when chewed; now all the pieces are under tension.
Tyler puts finishing touches on his creation. It features both thick and thins chewing options and enough space to really get in there and get a good tooth workout.

Sydney thought something small would be nice; something a girl could carry to a quiet corner for a good gnaw away from prying eyes and cameras.

Here the Spots confer on the final design refinements of a piece that sports width, height, thicks and thins; small enough to move around and large enough to share.

There were more pictures but silly Blogger refused to down load them, even though it was tried several times at different times. Bye for now, have a good Martin Luther King Day and a great and historical Inauguration however you observe it.

we were thinking of having a willow working workshop at a future conference for City Farms - any chance the buns could lead it?

Lovely post, I like how they work together co-operatively

Looks like you were all thumbs there, girly. And maximum, full-on disapproval is what it's all about! '~)

That is some scrumptious looking willow!

That top photo...Oh, boy! It's a foot flick, tail flick and glare all in one. Championship worthy disapproval!

Wonderful photos of the festivities! Bunny butts galore! And my buns would be so envious of all the willow-wallowing.

For some reason, I am completely tickled by disapproving bunny pics. (I've been so bloggy remiss! I've missed so many loverlyrabbity adventures and pictures).

Wish I could come up with a similarly clever chewy (non-messy) solution for our black lab...
