ONE MORE TIME - GOLDIE ...


Just to show that we are trying to slowly trim all that excess hair from Goldie, rather than pulling it out with a slicker brush. So far it seems to be going well, and the bald spot is actually getting some growth back over it! I'll try to remember to post a photo of it in a week or so.

Actually we sent this photo to DR this morning, but it did not "take". The "winner", Noodles, was surely a dandy, and I suppose there are quite a few to chose from each day. With now eleven regularly disapproving bunns in the place, there will always be another for us to try!

Little Racer stopped eating last evening and laid looking awful sour. Wouldn't touch oats or his evening salad. Bunny Lady gave him our standard treatment for that, which is 3 or 4 CC's of fresh pineapple juice from a syringe and a drop or two (depending on weight) of metacam, a pain med. She did that twice last evening (not the metacam - it's just once a day) and once this morning and by noon Racer was up and at 'em and now seems quite fine. They have such delicate internals. Happy Happy Happy! Yay Racer!

Well, that doesn't look like too much fun. But I suppose it must be done. Keep up the good work!

Good work on Racer. I used to give Bandit a Chinese herbal formula called Curing Pills when she went low appetite. Tyler went off his feed last week.The vet couldn't find anything wrong with him. We think he had been eating too much oak (firewood) and the tannins upset his tract. He is fine now and up to tricks.

I'll bet Goldie is enjoying that attention much more than she is letting on!

Glad Racer is back in happy spirits!

Hang in there Goldie, the groomies never last forever. I don't like em much either.

Good luck with the grooming. I haven't made DR yet either!

Have you checked for mites? It's rather unusual she would get bold spots just from tangled hair...

Our power is back - woo hoo. The Feeder can't wait for us to start shedding when we realise it isn't cold anymore (well, Northern California cold!).
