Birthday Weekend!

Okay, I'm not sticking my tongue out because I don't like what I am eating - on the contrary - I  LOVE babyfood, especially when it's MY BIRTHDAY!!!!  Mom prefers to call this an "action shot".

Yes, last weekend was the big bunny birthday weekend.  Binky turned 7 on February 26th and I turned 6 on February 28th.  We always have a party on the day in between. 

Mom bought 5 different flavours of babyfood to see if she can find one that Binky likes.  Binky is always nervous she is going to get it all over her white Dolce & Gabunny track suit so she never partakes.  Mom served up carrot, banana, applesauce, pear/raspberries and apple/blueberries.  Miss Binks refused all 5.  I approved four - I passed on the carrots.  Mom and Dad played with us lots and we got extra snuggles because we are such good bunnies.  She says not all bunnies are as lucky as we are.

Binks and I were also on a new website called Buntocks!  Well, actually all four of us bunns were.  It's this awesome new blog that posts nothing but bunny bums!  Click on the link and look for the four of us on March 3rd - that's Binky, Ella, Scooter and me from left to right.  You can send in your bunny bum shots too!  Mommy loves bunny bums and says she fancies to snack on any 'tocks she can get her hands on.  She's given mine a good nom from time to time.  *sigh*  SO unnecessary.....

I also want to take this opportunity to introduce you to a new friend of ours.  His name is Pancakes and he is a little dwarf bunny who lives in London, ON, Canada.  We met him on Bunspace and read his story about how sick he is and how his new parents are doing everything they can to help him.  He has been through so much in the last month and everything has been very expensive and overwhelming for his Mom and Dad who love him to bits.  His Dad has set up a great website to get the word out about Pancakes and it would really mean a lot to me and Binks if everyone could please go and check out his story.  You can learn more about him and how to help by clicking here, and then clicking on "Saving Pancakes" (warning, graphic pictures) or you can read his Bunspace profile here.  I know times are tough and not everyone is in a position to help financially but even sending some words of support would be a great help.  And please pass the link on to anyone else who you think would be interested.  Pancakes deserves a fighting chance and together we can give him one!

Poor Pancake. :(

I've had to feed two bunnies baby food, one who had a bad tooth that got infected, and wasn't eating. Now my bunny with kidney failure who is having a hard time eating. I haven't really given it to them as snacks, but seeing them eat it is one of the cutest things i have ever seen. :)

We celebrate an estimated birthday on January 27th. I estimated Biff's birthday based on how old he was said to be the day I got him, and we just let Sogna share that birthday. When we adopted Sogna from the shelter they told us she was probably "about the same age" as Biff, but there's really no way to know. We also celebrate our Bunoversaries (the day I took home each bun), Biff's is the day before Easter and Sogna's is May 17th.

Poor Pancakes. We have offered what support we could, monetarily and with words of encouragement. I shared Sogna's story with Dustin, and offered my sympathy with his situation. I hopefully encouraged him by telling him of Sogna's remarkable physical recovery, as evidence that with buns with such a strong will to live, anything is possible. We wish Pancakes and his parents the very best.

Happy Belated Birthday guys! Looks like you had a great time!

I hope little Pancake keeps fighting.

I just want to thank you for posting about Pancakes. I am not sure I would have learned about his fight otherwise. I know he has passed away now, but truly his story shows what great people we have in this world.

Leave it to Binks to know how to care for a good thing! And Fluffer to clean his plate clean!

HAppy B'day all!

We heard about the final demise of Pancakes. How hard for his people - they tried so hard.
