It's The Ears

Not surprisingly one of the most frequently asked questions from children are about bunny ears. They are truly a fascinating bunny part and invaluable tool for survival. How is it that they work independently of each other like they do - one pointing forward and the other to the back? Or when the bunny is really angry both ears are pinned flat against the bunny's back. Subtle messages are transmitted via the ears continually if the bunny is awake. How appropriate the term given to a TV antenna - rabbit ears. Well some of you will know what I'm talking about.

Some friends of ours are on a business trip and their 2 bunnies are staying with us while they are gone. Walter, the white with brown spots bunny man and Barbara Jane, the red head beauty both have magnificent ears, but B.J. has especially gorgeous ears. They are in my opinion perfection. Just wanted to point them out. Bunny eyelashes are another favorite for another day.

Hey Wait a Minute

That's not a bunny!

Meet Miss Margie, no Heartland is not going into the dog rescue business, well mostly anyway. This is the beautiful Margie. She showed up in the pasture about 3 weeks ago. She was huddled down, cold, hungry and scared. Heartland took her in and just look at her now!
Margie appears to be part Beagle and some other kinds of dogs thrown in. She is about a year old and has now been spayed and gotten her shots. She is a very sweet girl who loves company. Margie is learning her manners and how to walk on a leash. She needs a wonderful indoor home and to be treated with kindness and love and have lots of playtime. What a great girl she is!
