... Happy Birthday Princess. The pretty girl is Nine!! Still very active and bright-eyed and happy. She might be a bit - uh - well fed.
"Excuse me? I am just right. Right?" - The Princess

"ER...UM... -

- it is - a -- gu -- gu -- good to have them ba -- ba -- back. There. Now leave me alone." - Chico
" Why thank you Chico me boy. I know you had good care while we were gone, but still, there is no place like home. You may now be alone!" - RG

"They are back Goldie - one day they lasted." - Benji
"OK OK - there is a GOOD explanation. Here was day one. This is a totally ROUND house - the only flat parts are windows and doors. There are 10 windows like what you see that form about 1/3 of the house that looks out to sea. Ahhhhh ....."
Here is day two at about 11:00am - just before the power went out. All of San Juan Island - no estimate for if/when it will be restored. 2" of snow so far. No heat, no water, no lights, no candles, no hurricane lamps, no phones, minimal cell phone reception. Ferry leaves at 2:00 or 4:00. (Gets dark by 4:30.) What to do?
We hurriedly packed and left to get in line for the 2:00. Even if we would have waited for awhile (and maybe still catch the 4:00) and the power came back on we were afraid it might go right back off and leave us in a pickle, especially since nobody on the Island had power - not even the motels!
(While we were stuck in the ferry line, we saw the lights come back on in the nearby shops. By then we were committed and still worried about how long that power might last. So home we came, to 9 yawning bunnies and a cat. Thanks for not absconding with your favorites, but it was warm to know how much you all cared!)

And you would have ????

"BL and RG are headed off for their get-a-way to San Juan Island. 3 days alone they get. How will they ever be OK without us????" - Savannah

Laura - aka Friend of the Animals (FOTA) of RenoRabbits - will be doing the daily chores. She now has more bunnies at home than here at the House of Rabbits. She will be one busy bunn keeper!

See you Friday - wish us well. - RG

"DO TRY ....

"She's happy and well cared for - honest" - The Help

- do you see what I see" - The Boyz
OMG Lucky. LOOK at this. What is going on? I don't know Winnie, but I hear they are going off to a get-a-way on an island for 3 days after Christmas. FOTA will be tending us. Ayi Yi Yi Lucky, somebody might be in for it here - should we warn RG? Maybe we should just chew on it Winnie. I don't know Lucky, I'm worried.

Ayi Yi Yi ?

Here is Zoey, the Bunny of Christmas Present =:<)
(See Shell's pretty jingle-tree?)

... and here is some festive ...
meatballs - a holiday tradition

(Listen - considering I got two cards, a candle, the jingle-tree, a sock, a bow, and Zoey all in one reasonable picture, I'm calling it good! You should see the ones on the cutting room floor.)

Monday, December 20, 2010


Anybody got Audrey? Anybody remember where we last saw Audrey? You Boyz seen Audrey down there?

(Shhhh .... but BL FINALLY got a bit into the Christmas Spirit today. Hopefully some festive post stuff tomorrow.)

"WELL! .....

... THAT is not very polite." - Chico
I know, but you are so darn cute there Cheekers!

Limoncello Cake Recipe off to the right, as requested by someone.

Friday, December 17, 2010


"It's RG's birthday? Imagine that - he must be OLD." - Zoey
Maybe so, Zoey, but look at this! Shrimp Scampi and a Limoncello Cake!

Thank you BL - delicious.

Thursday, December 16, 2010


I wake up in France???" - Racer
Don't worry little boy. It was just a bad dream.

Wednesday, December 15, 2010


The Boyz think if they hop in here then we won't find them when it is time to come back inside.
Silly Boyz. There are fresh oats and hay inside.

Tuesday, December 14, 2010


Oh my but Black Bart was once again beginning to enjoy himself SO much here ... as you can see.
But - all good things must come to an end and Black Bart has gone to his normal home up the road a ways again. Hopefully in February all the match-making that has been happening will take root and BB will find a really happy home! He was a fine fellow here.
(Oh - four bunnies - no tricks - Goldie, Benji, Racer, and The Princess. No Kitty Boy - it just looked like him up there on the fence.)

Monday, December 13, 2010


Who do you see?
Flooding here not severe.
Some of the snow looks awful. Be careful out there.

Sunday, December 12, 2010

... GO AWAY ...

Black Bart is doing well.
But he has been locked in a bathroom for a few days to fully recover and he does not like it.

(Late breaking news ... BB is now back in the kitchen and much more frisky and happy. He will go home Monday or Tuesday. However, he must spend this night cloistered again in the bathroom because the night before his operation he crossed the dreaded slippery hardwood floor, knocked over the fence, and made him self right at home all over the house! Until he went in where Chico is at about 3AM and the two of them commenced to dig and thump and scratch and wake up BL and waking up BL is like the kiss of death.)
(Finally, good luck all of you who are dealing with old Man Winter. We are flooding - the Pineapple Express has attacked Oregon and Washington with a vengeance and there will be some serious consequences in some places. We are on high ground and well prepared.)

... how about yourself?" - Savannah

"I don't think I'm up to it." - Chico
Stay put Chico. Your fans love you!!!
(So do we.)

Wednesday, December 8, 2010


I am TOTALLY OUT of fresh pictures - for shame. Here is an August leftover. I think Goldie was shedding large globs.
Black Bart is coming around - eating pretty good and doing the things he should. Maybe he will be up for a picture tomorrow.
Who else is due up?

Tuesday, December 7, 2010


We grew a Racer!

Black Bart came through his surgery OK and is recovering - still pretty groggy but up and moving.

(BL was a bit under the weather so I went to get BB. I walked in and loudly announced "Limo here for Black Bart!" - it hung 'em up! Gave me a discount.)

Monday, December 6, 2010


Or won't he? - that is the question.
KB REALLY wants to, so he can scoot out the little bunny door. But he won't. She's not The Princess for nothing!

Sunday, December 5, 2010


Black Bart is here again for some visit time. Actually he is going for a little manly vet visit Tuesday and soft-heart BL will be nursing him back to health. Bart and Savannah are quite the pair.

Kitty Boy.
Watch out.
The Darkness is near.

Friday, December 3, 2010


... can't hunt? Is that a new, well installed faucet or what? (You can see the split along a seam in the old one there.) BL is ecstatic. (Well OK, happy.)
"Somebody has some explaining to do." .... Goldie

Thursday, December 2, 2010


... Mr. RG. This is your disapproval rating for the past 120 days. You will notice it has been rising lately. This is an exponential scale. What that means is that your rating has been rising a LOT more than it appears! What is your recovery plan?" - Winston
"Uh - I bought a new kitchen faucet to install?" - RG

Wednesday, December 1, 2010


Of course I'm PRETTY.

Tuesday, November 30, 2010


... And up he did go!
KB is wearing out his welcome. He scoots out The Princess's little door to the deck, hops up on the railing, climbs up the rain shield onto the house roof, goes up over the peak and down the other side to the front porch overhang and then jumps down to the porch railing, to the porch and to the ground of the great outside! Eventually he comes back and whines at the door. Anybody want a cat????

Monday, November 29, 2010


... Holiday snooping already!

Listen - despite all the smart remarks, the real thing wrong with yesterday's picture was Goldie and Benji being in the Boyz outside pen. And trying to hide to boot.
BL is keeping me around, safe and sound. I'm worth a lot more alive than dead or gone.

Sunday, November 28, 2010


BTW - although the oven caught fire (Yup, RG bought one of those cheapy aluminum roasting pans and it had a hole in it) and the septic system backed up into the downstairs bathroom (Yup, RG forgot to check on how long since the last pumping) and the kitchen faucet split and spurts all over everything (Yup, RG didn't act on it soon enough) we got through the holidays pretty good.

Friday, November 26, 2010


Yes folks - this is post # 1,000 since we started 3 years ago (not including several done under the 7-Bunny-7 blog.) Almost 6,000 profile peeks and more than 60 followers - makes me feel a bit like the pied piper under a microscope. Guess we'll just keep on .....
Racer is just exhausted from the whole thing, not to mention the holiday hub-bub. KB is long flown the coop back to the fire and all is well.

Wednesday, November 24, 2010


Haven't seen him - must have moved." - Kitty Boy
"Racer has friends you know, KB.
But, for now,
Happy Thanksgiving all you US of A folks and Howdy to you World readers!" - RG and BL and The Bunns

Tuesday, November 23, 2010


The QI Papers has a picture of, I think, Harriet peering down upon her mortal serfs and such. Here is Racer trying the same. He is actually having a frolic in Zoey's outdoor area which is dry and under cover. Otherwise he would be up to his pantaloons in snow.
Racer is just too darn cute, sweet, cuddly, and well - Racerish - to pull it off! He just does not do stern!

It's going to NINE DEGREES F. tonight. Insane for here - our winters average 35 degrees. I hope Aussie Katie in Vancouver is enjoying it.

Monday, November 22, 2010


It is very wintry here and unusually cold - especially for mid-November. KB has it figured out though!

Katie and Phil (sans Puddy who was one of our old 7-Bunny-7 adventure group), from A Byootaful Life, are currently living for awhile in Vancouver B.C., just up the road about 100 miles from us. They are from Australia - she is like a little kid in a candy store over snow! Do you remember your first snow?
By the way, if you are from the East (anywhere east of the Cascade Mtns.) and plan to visit - don't. Here is the big I-90 freeway over Snoqualmie Pass tonight. You will NOT want to see it tomorrow.

CSI-HOR has been here and taken the requisite notes and photos. They have now covered the scene ... it is not fit for eyes. It is Savannah's box - well, what is left of it - you would not expect a box would have had some of the parts that were left about. Total and complete carnage. When the waitress did not move the food dish quickly enough, well Savannah just totally lost it and destroyed her own house out of rage.
If a certain white-with-dark-spots Rex knocks on your door looking for shelter .... RUN!!!!

Friday, November 19, 2010

"WAITRESS ......

.... there's been a mistake!" - Savannah
Oh Oh!

Thursday, November 18, 2010


Bunn at serious work.

Lucky REALLY works hard at this.

... match my eyes! Sweet." - The Princess

Tuesday, November 16, 2010


As part of her "Beautify the Slough" campaign, BL (aka Lady of the Slough) got about 40 friends and neighbors to donate money, time, skills, and a bit of food and we put 130 native plants of a wide variety along our little stretch of slough waterfront on Sunday. We hope it will serve as a model for others to emulate - we plan to encourage it! We had a most amazing turnout complete with the requisite "big wigs" and the requisite "greenies" and everyone in between.

The finished work - grow babies, grow!

What BL does best .... oh my! (Ever have 35 tree planters come for dinner?)
"PFHHHHTTTTTtttt. Racer reports it was dull dull dull .... outside in the sun - much better!" - Chico

Monday, November 15, 2010


"We're having a rain and windstorm. Lights are flickering on and off. Tucked away for the night. Catch you later." - the Bunns and all.
