OH- NOTHING IN PARTICULAR ....

Like most folks I suppose, BL and I have a diverse collection of close relatives, distant ones, quasi-adopted ones, some becoming un-relatives, and some working on becoming relatives - maybe. Such was our group that came to visit Sunday ...

Gemma (visiting here) eats carrots - this is because Gemma lives with a family of vegetarians and does not know about meat. Bunns think Gemma is very cool. Gemma is a $100,000 dog. This is because first, Gemma just had a $15,000 hip rebuild. Gemma had the $15,000 hip rebuild because Gemma is also, second, what you know as a Seeing-Eye dog - very well trained, at great expense.

These little cuteys (about 3 yrs. old) - I am not sure they ever stood still - are the twin daughters of the lady who has Gemma. They are from what you call artificial implanting and etc. Yes, the lady is blind since early childhood, born in Mexico ... but she can ski, ride a bike and do the sport where you cross country ski and shoot a gun at targets. (It's done with her ears!) Full time job, own condominium, rides the bus to work - all pretty normal stuff. She is the girl friend of #1 son. Other than a lot of native smarts and being a really nice guy, he has no such claims to fame.





The girls like bunnies and these two - Goldie and Chico - certainly returned the favor.
We have had a LOT of little ones this age traipse in and out of our house over the past many years - we never tire of it - we just get tired!!!!!!!!!!!
For the rest, you'll need to wait for the book....

Excellent! I've been following the Houseful blog for a while now, cos I have a yardful myself, six dwarf lops each with their own hutch and times to run around and be fussed over. And my friend has grandkids and they're all in that age group and they all love the bunnies too.

Plus, there's a penful of chickens, a few gardenbedsful of vegetables, and all the usual accoutrements. So hi from western Australia!

Shadow the Dog likes carrots too! And cooked broccoli, but not raw broccoli. Shadow will even eat an olive, but they are tricky because they roll around.
My nephew loves to visit Hef, he's a good boy about it too.
Is there going to be a houseful of rabbits book? there should be!

Those two girls are so adorable! Sounds like you have quite a fun family, with lots of variety to keep everyone hopping (so to speak).

My aunt's dog likes carrots, just like Gemma. Funny thing - my father was house/dog sitting and my aunt forgot to tell him to give the dog a carrot each night. Every evening the dog would give my father "the look" and for the life of him he couldn't figure out what the dog wanted.

Cute girls! I love the way the bunnies seem so interested in them.

Soo cute. Amazing how she can even dress them alike being blind! And the dog is pretty cool too.

Goldie is such a sweetheart.

Can I pre-order the book yet?

Wonderful post. Quite inspirational. And, of course, the Bunns!

I'll be glad when our Lab, Dixie, matures enough that she doesn't want to "pat" everything with her paws to see if it is something to play with or love on, in which case she will lick it to oblivion. She's still in the toddler phase, but is gaining maturity as the weeks pass. Obedience training is a great help, but the poor dear seems SO ADHD! Reminds me of Doug in the movie, "UP." It seems there is always some training to work on. She remains very curious about our buns, but is much less silly than she was a few months ago. We humans have to remind ourselves to be patient.

Those cute little girls must love you and BL and your furry menagerie!

I would love to see your whole family splayed out on a car window in those stickers! That would be quite the sight!

When I was growing up we had a dog that would dig carrots up from the garden and eat them - raw beets also!
Gemma's owner sounds amazing. I saw some of the biathlon competition from the paralympic games on TV - including the blind athletes who used sound to sight their targets - it was really something to see. Those targets are not close either!
You, BL, and all the buns better rest up for the next group of cuties that come visiting!
