BunFest 2010

Oh, it's close alright, it's tomorrow!

No, that's not me, that's Hattie - isn't she cute?  And BunFest is a really big convention that Mom organizes every year for Rabbit Rescue.  It raises a lot of money for all of the bunnies who need it.

Mom has been working on BunFest since about June and these last few weeks have been very busy.  "Mom!  It's time you updated my blog!" I reminded her.  "I know, I know, I'm sorry.  I've just been so busy with all this BunFest stuff lately I just haven't had time..."

"Well, you can't keep my peeps waiting!"

The summer has come to an end and the humid days are moving off into the sunset, although a few of them still hang around.  The patio door is open more and Miss Binks and I like to sniff the cool, fall air.  Nutters and Butters are packing their cheeks with nuts for the winter even though it's quite a ways off.  And as the leaves begin to change colour, it's a reminder that it's BunFest time!

BunFest is a lot of fun and Mom works really hard gathering all the volunteers together for one common cause - to help Rabbit Rescue raise money!  It's become quite the event and it's grown in so many ways.  We get to educate people about proper bunny care like diet, housing, spaying and neutering and people can come and bring their bunnies and meet other bunny parents too.  It's so important that there be a great support system of pet rabbit owners and BunFest is a great way to nurture that. 

There are all kinds of things for bunnies to do there as well.  There is a BunSpa, Glamour Shots, a Cafe and Lounge and you can even make your own bunny toy to take home!  Not to mention all the toys, treats and merchandise there is to buy.

Where else can you get a free consultation with a rabbit-savvy vet?  Fresh farm grown hay, bagged on the spot?  AND get a loot bag?  Hey, it's not a party without loot bags!

It's tons of fun and if there are any bunnies in the southern Ontario region, please come out and check it out!  Click here for all the details.

Once BunFest is over, Mom says she is going to take a really long nap, like, REALLY long. But until then, the next 24 hours are going to be crazy busy!  "Hey Mom!!"

"Yes, Fluffy?"

"Don't forget to bring home all kinds of presents for us okay?"

"Oh yes, Fluffy, presents for everybunny!!!"

The Little Blue Box

Well, if there was any doubt before about whether or not Binky is a spoiled bunny, this picture should confirm it.

This post is pretty much a continuation of how awesome my Dad is.  Even though I didn't get anything from Tiffany's - harumph.

Mom just celebrated a milestone birthday - the BIG 4-0.  "Fluffy!  Don't post to the world how old I am!!!"

"Oh Mom, relax, it's just a number....."

Anyway, Dad took her to New York City for the weekend and also took her to Tiffany's on 5th Avenue to pick out something for herself.  Mom chose a charm bracelet and some charms - very nice indeed.  Everything was beautifully wrapped in a blue Tiffany box and tied with a white fabric ribbon.

So according to Mom, there is something about Tiffany's that is special.  Something about an incredible feeling that rushes over your body when someone hands you that blue Tiffany box with the white ribbon.  Apparently, women all over the world swoon over the scenario of receiving such a gift, and Mom is no exception.  "It's just so very special!  Tiffany's is very special.  You know Mom isn't really into brand names and fancy-shmancy stuff, but Coach and Tiffany's are her only exceptions.  And did you know that at Tiffany's they learn how to tie the ribbon in a very special way so that all you have to do is tug on one loose end and it will automatically unravel and fall open?  That's dreamy......"


Okay, so anyway, Dad is awesome for taking Mom to Tiffany's but he is also awesome because he bought something for Binky too!  Her very own Tiffany scarf.  That's her in the picture wearing it, posing next to her blue Tiffany box.  "Binky's my girl...." he told Mom that day, "...and she deserves something special, too."

"Fluffy, don't I look pretty?  Doesn't this scarf look beautiful against my white Dolce & GaBunny track suit?" she asked.  "You're always pretty, Binks.  It's really nice with your pink eye too!"

So there you have it.  Mom and Binky, two very spoiled ladies!  But I guess they deserve it.  Miss Binks keeps her scarf in her little blue box on her wardrobe shelf,  right next to the box with her Coach scarf.  She might just very well be the best dressed bunny in town....
