Tyler exited the carrier and scooted under a chair, giving his opinion of the whole affair with a single strong thump. Sydney stopped and accepted the bribe, a few oat groats. Amelia remained unfazed for the most part. They had all been to the vet. Amelia for her introduction to the good Dr. Hawklyn and the Spots were in for just a check. My last rabbit had a lot of tooth issues, so I particularly wanted Dr. H. to peek into mouths as this is something I cannot access until there is problem.
All packed up for a road trip......
Everybun was given a clean bill of health and here are their reported weights: Tyler - 5.69 lb: Sydney - 6.25 lb: Amelia - 6.38 lb. In Dr. Hs opinion, which we trust implicitly, Sydney is not fat, but she shouldn't gain anymore weight, Tyler is was pronounced to be just right which matches his own feelings about himself. Amelia is thought to be at maybe 3/4 of her full growth. When she came here she measured about 18 inches from nose to base of tail when stretched, now she measures 24 inches, 6 inches in about a month. Of all the rabbits Sydney was the most upset and we had a bit of a scrambly moment on the table, she was much more comfortable in a wrap. Tyler showed me he trusted me by shrinking away from the vet tech when she tried to get him out of the carrier and coming towards me when I went to get him, having passed the wrapped Syd off to the tech.
Are we there yet?
Amelia was a piece of cake, that girl is SOOOO CHILL. When the tech was taking their "history" it took some explanation before she realized that these rabbits are not kept in cages or crates or enclosures which cannot be exited at will at any time. At the end of the appointment Dr. H wanted photos for the record and another tech came in with a camera "Will any photo do?" I asked, wondering if it had be a sort of ID/mugshot set up, "Yes, do you have pictures of your rabbits?" "Yes, quite a few......" Quite a few hundred that is. I may have even mentioned that the rabbits had their own blog, but that comment was politely passed over. I brought my portfolio of prints in hopes Dr. Hawklyn would say we love all of these and want to redecorate the office with your work. She choose two rabbit prints that will hang in her examination room; a small inroad to world domination.
Making 10 of these 22 by 22 inch signs, they can be hung or staked.
The Rabboratory has been busy making signs for the Moreland Park rescue operation. This an area in San Jose, CA, where people have been dumping unwanted rabbits and there have been litters upon litters. Rabbits are starving, dogs are being let loose on them, people are shooting them with pellet guns. It is a human made travesty that humans need to correct humanely. I am doing what I can for The Rabbit Haven and their rescue efforts. Soon we will be able to go in and get the rest of the rabbits, bureaucracy is currently the stumbling block.
