Flash Friday 55 #5

After passing the physical, the kid handed Sarge a written test with a perfect score. Sarge had a letter from a shrink the kid had seen, something about feeling unloved, no big deal, but nobody got a perfect score. Nobody. He wrote IV-F next the kid’s name: registrant not qualified for any military service.

Vintage Bandit

I found some photo proofs from 1998 of baby Bandit, 
my first official, though illegal, house rabbit.

Baby Bandit compared to my martial arts shoe, she got much bigger.

She loved the vacuum, it was her BFF

Ruling the roost from day one.

An innovator in the use of rocks.

Eat more kale.

Friday Flash 55 #4

A close call. My patient brought her 6 year old son. She needed time alone with the acupuncture needles.  I lured him out with books. After reading one about fish the next was The Velveteen Rabbit. I started tearing up around the time the rabbit got real...luckily it was time to check on mom.

This is Hermes he was my foster rabbit for much of last year. He is a Rex rabbit.
Rex's have no undercoat resulting is fur like velvet(een).
He did find his forever home and you can read about it HERE.
You can find out more about rescue rabbits and the Rabbit Haven HERE

Flash Friday 55 #4

She wore her pants tight enough to feel like a country western song and prayed out loud until the gas pump accepted her soon to be X husband’s credit card. With a tankful and a full can she drove by the house one last time, burning bridges was bad, burning his stupid car was exhilarating.

Two Harriets

excerpt from A Rabbit's Middle Way

Two Harriets
obviously different
 yet the same bun
           the same
                            the middle
                                                       jump in!

Friday Flash 55 Number Three

“I hate to cook, I’ve cooked for over fifty years.”

“I could cook you some food and 
put it in the freezer to heat and eat later.”

“ I don’t need or want help, I just don’t want to cook.”

And so, even when we offered to bring the food,
 the holiday family dinners were forever cancelled.

Good Morning

Sydney Spot

Sydney is fine, but she is up for "Most Likely to Be Taken To The Vet" award. I had heard somebun cough the day before, that coupled with a morning episode of phlegmy hacking and more coughing later was enough to send me to the phone. Though it seemed probable that the morning episode was the result of a pellet being snarfled before chewing properly. By the time the afternoon rolled around she seemed fine, eating, grooming, checking out the playroom (DS bedroom). Tyler unvoluntarily accompanied her, just for fun, on my part not his. Everything was fine, teeth, lungs,  ears, eyes, tummy. We agreed that it was just a pellet incident. There is a tremendous amount of excitement around pellets. Sydney was weighed at the vet and she weighed exactly the same as she did about a year ago. It has been about nine months since we transitioned to Sherwood Forest Natural Rabbit Food M/S. In some circles it is controversial that they put some alfalfa in their adult rabbit formula, it is thought that will make rabbits fat as it is too rich. Sydney says otherwise, she maintains that it is a balanced formula and even has improved the quality of her fur.
