Introducing...


Bubbles and Buttercup!
We got these two yesterday, and they now live on our patio, with a run that takes up probably a third of it! My daughter loves them and has been spoiling them already, for example feeding them some of these stupidly expensive strawberries!
My younger son also loves them and was out in the garden this morning looking at them, still in his PJs.
Number One Son is not so impressed - according to him "one is fat and the other looks retarded". Can't argue there, I guess...
Custard the dog is not quite sure what to think about these invaders, half curious half frightened - they don't run away from him like cats do even if he barks at them!


Better not show him this!

Rabbits? At last count, you were caring for 3 dogs. Now you've added rabbits to the mix? Well, I think they're cute, anyway.

Are you starting a farm now? Between aking care of three dogs and Humphrey, looks like you have your hands full.

And love the classic MP bit. That's the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on!

What makes you get this pair of bunnies?!

I thought you have been perfectly poisoned to get ferrets!!!

Terri - Yes, we have been thinking about getting rabbits for some time now and it finally happened...

agg79 - If only we had the space for a farm! My wife would love to have chickens and geese too, which we probably would not be allowed to eat...

Shadowthorne - Yes, I was leaning towards ferrets but these came up so we took them.

Awe!! How fun!! I had wanted to get a rabbit for my kids at our last house but never felt that life had slowed down a bit to add something like that...looking back I'm glad I didn't b/c they would have had to be transfered for this move. Enjoy them! :)

Keep a holy hand grenade handy just in case.

"one is fat and the other looks retarded"

I literally just sat here and laughed till I bawled about this.

Damn, I needed that :)
