The Softer Side Of A Big Tough Lop

Yeah, we all know that when I am on the couch terrorizing my Stupid Blankets, I am one Big Tough Lop.  There is no petting or snorgling allowed unless you would like an impromptu toss-of-the-hand with my chompers.  But yes, even I, Fluffy McFluffersons, like the occasional cuddle.  It doesn't happen that often so when Binks and I were being snorgled to within an inch of our lives the other night, Mom had to whip out that iPhone and film it.

There's Binky wrapped up in a blanket - she loves the warmth and the kisses and the head pats she gets.  Then there's me - Dad is giving me head rubs and I am all squished down enjoying them while I dream of a land where everything is banana flavoured.  Sometimes I just don't feel like being tough.  Sometimes I just want to be sucky and let Mommy or Daddy do all the work to pet me and love on me.  I will admit, it's nice!  And it's super nice when Binky and I can get the royal treatment in tandem so neither of us has to do all the work!  We sure are lucky bunns.  I wish everybunny was as lucky as we are.....

So hug your bunny today.  Cuddle them, snorgle them, love on them like it's the last day of your life.  Let them know how much they are loved.  Give them treats.  Lots of treats.  Buy them toys.  Let them rule the household and resign yourself to the fact that you are a bunny slave.......

"Okay Fluffy, now you are getting carried away...."

*sigh* Thanks Mom.

Snow Day

I'm just going to apologize right now for these videos.  Of course, Mom is recording them and yammering in her silly voice being all cute and narrative.  She really needs to learn more about the art of editing....

"Fluffy, you KNOW I am an editor, right?"

Then why are these videos so long?!

"They're not THAT long.  Besides, you're adorable!  I could never let any footage of you end up on the cutting room floor....."

Anyway, as you can see, we've had a lot of snow here over the last couple of days.  Even though we live in Canada, we don't usually get this much snow all at once but I guess this year is special.  Last year, we never touched our shovel....

I love the snow!  I love to hop hop hop and sink in it!  And run like a real wild bunny does!  But of course, Mom had to make sure I didn't go anywhere so she stuck me in the alley along the side of the house that goes to the garage, then blocked off the other end with an xpen. 

But that's okay, I had fun!  I'm not all that used to the snow but it's like a soft, cold treat under my feet.

And of course, Miss Binks got in on the action too!  Binky has an inner Wild Snow Bunny she likes to unleash at least once a winter.  She's pretty good out there too, considering she is blind and has no idea where she is.  She likes to dig in it.  And she likes being outside in general, listening to the birds and sniffing the air, although there probably isn't much to sniff in the middle of winter.

Mom brought some snow inside in a big litter bin but Binky and I were pretty much done with it at that point.  We were warming up our nosies and tosies in front of the heater.  "That was fun, wasn't it Fluffy?"

"Sure was, Binky.  But now my ear tips are cold and wet...."  Then she leaned in and started licking them.  "Here, let me get that for you...."
