Here they are waiting for training. Sydney is seeking reassurance from Tyler who seems to have his eye firmly fixed on the greens bag.
Training is progressing. The other day when I didn't have time to do a proper feeding training session, I just picked some fresh Chicory from the yard and put it is the Spots bowl. Tyler hung back and gave me a look. Either he isn't too smart and has completely forgotten how to eat on his own or he does think it is a nice way to have a meal. Indeed when I stock up the Bunvention they both seem to think it more fun to be fed strands of hay rather than rummage in the Bunvention.
Tyler with all four paws on my lap, he is getting really good at this. I am trying to reinforce the word "lap", but he seems to think that just hearing "good" means jump in lap and have a snack.
This morning Tyler spent about 75 percent of the time in my lap (that would be all 4 paws on). When he is there I touch his ears a forehead, not too much just a bit, since these are bonding gestures. Sydney seemed to put out and she sulked under a chair. I addressed her a few times, because she does know her name, so she wouldn't feel forgotten. Finally she came hopping out, did a sort of half bink with a shoulder shake and planted herself in my right knee for her breakfast. She had decided she could play too and wasn't she a good girl!. For awhile I had both rabbits with 4 paws on on my lap (getting mighty crowded). Didn't get a picture of that because my camera batteries ran out.
Tyler firmly on lap with Sydney showing that she can do 2 paws on very well.
Giving credit where credit is due: I have to say that reading Furrybutts tale of Yohji gave me courage/motivation/faith to try training the Spots. Thanks Furrybutts !!!!
