A DAY AT HEARTLAND



This evening when I came home after spending an afternoon at Heartland (my very first visit and day as a volunteer, I pretty much did nothing today but meet each bunny and hand out carrots) I had to sit down and tell my bunnies all about it. I will let Mojo tell the rest of the story, she is better at telling mushy stuff than I am at saying it. Tango will preside to make sure it gets told right.


So mom came home this afternoon smelling like bunnies. I think she is cheating on us so I had to sniff her all over and look hard into her face. I showed some disapproval but I will let her scratch my head later I think.


Mom told us all about the buns at Heartland. She said she was so lucky that we picked her to live with cuz there are a lot of buns at Heartland that people should adopt. Big buns, little buns, feisty buns (mom loves the feisty ones), scardy buns and sick bunnies. They left big impressions on her heart. She was proud to meet Mr. Cooper and hope his eyes get to feeling better soon. Sprout was a cutie for sure and a champion despite his head tilt. Ben had a huge impact on mom and she will think of him every day. His little face struggling to breathe and eat the same time made mom cry on the way home.(She said he is her special bunny now and will be her sponsor bun along with Cooper) Hannah did as well. She said little angel Amelia was a snuggler deluxe and Huggie was a real crack up. (There might be a bunny in there somewhere under that fluff). Daisy sticks out in her mind as well. Something about that little sweet baby putting her face to the cage for a kiss. Momma said she smooched lots of them through the cages (she didnt want to be too forward on her first day and start grabbing up bunnies) she was passing out smooches left and right. Not too sure I like THAT very much.
She told us she really wanted to kiss and snuggle with Sweet Pea, who has hard time with people cuz she was mistreated. Who mistreats bunnies anyway? Missy gave big attitude but Mom snuck in a smooch anyway and Millie and Tavey cracked her up with their carrot excitement. Bunny Cole looks just like me. That's pretty cool, and Stewart gobbled up his shredded carrots with gusto. Had a little orange stain on his face.
Momma is going to start bugging her friends to give more to the bunnies. Times might be tough but there is always a little extra to share. She says maybe that rotten brat bunny Nemo upstairs will get a girl. (maybe Huggie or Amelia buns) but knowing Nemo he will pick the biggest bunny with the biggest attitude.
She also got to meet the guard donkeys. She liked that too. She said they could crunch a carrot in no time flat. I doubt they could beat me though. Momma is always telling us what wonderful people are there and how they love bunnies. I hope everyone will care about bunnies one day as much as they do.
Here's to Hazel, Barty and Hogan who left for the bridge before Mom could meet them. May they find peace and happiness forever.

Update on Spook, Thanks for all your help!

Hi Guys,

Two months ago I asked for help with my bun's skin problem and I really appreciate all of the posts and suggestions. I think he is getting over it but I can't tell you why. We tried everything and nothing really seemed to work. Then, this last month he had a big summer bunny shed and when he lost all of his old hair and undercoat, he lost his skin problem too. I have brushed him and looked all over and cannot find any more flakey places and he is regrowing his hair in his bald places. He still looks a little funny but I think we are on the downhill side of it. Thanks again for all of your help and support. I will post a pic of him as soon as he fills his hair in a bit more and gains some weight. I was so afraid I was going to lose him but now it looks like he is going to stick around a while longer. Thank you again for everything.

-Spook's and Dahlia's Mom

Bunny Games


Spencer loves this cube. He loves pushing it, hiding in it and sleeping in it. Great toy for a bunny.

Little Jacoby

This is my little one adopted from Heartland about two months ago.
Just wanted to share some photos of Jacoby (a.k.a. Alvin).
He's pretty small in size but definitely not in attitude or personality.
















... hmmm.... I wonder why she keeps flashing me?












Maybe if I ignore it and wash up, she'll go back to rubbing my ears...

















OK, seriously mom.... no more pictures, not even for my adoring fans... (he's getting really good at giving me
the "look")

An innocent soul becomes a flower

My little cottontail baby,

not even 14 days were you allowed on this earth, but already you had touched our hearts. Your eyes were not even fully open when you experienced the cruelty of man. A monster of a child had kicked you like a soccer ball and left you with a crushed pelvis and internal injuries. Still you drank and snuggled in our hands and gave us a glimmer of hope - but then your suffering was over when on the third day you saw the brightness of the Rainbow Bridge.

This is for you:

Don't stand at my grave and cry for me
I am not there.
I am the 1000 winds that blow
I am the sparkling brilliance of the snow.
I am the sun over meadows and fields.
I am the dewdrops in the early morn'.
I am the flower that has just been born.
I am the glittering stars in the moonlit sky
I am free as the birds and my spirit will fly.
When you'll awake in the daybreak's peace
I am the life eclipsing the night.
Don't stand at my grave and grieve for me
I'm not in there – I haven't died.
