Me Vs. Banana

Check out what mom found (sorry it's off the page a bit) - it's an old video of me eating a banana (big surprise)!  Mom figures this video is at least 6 years old, perhaps even more.  This was back when we lived in the condo (location of the now infamous "Paint Tray Incident"). 

Every morning, Mom would have a bowl of cereal and a banana, and of course I would hop right up on the couch to help her eat it!  I must have been extra famished that morning because I sure do chow down on that thing like a little piggy, but what can I say?  I love nanners!

If you look closely, you can even see that my ears aren't bald yet.  Binky and I were no doubt already bonded but not enough time had passed for her to create the "bald look" that I now sport on the outside of my floppy ears.  *sigh*  I remember the days when my ears weren't cold....

And here is another one, probably taken about the same time as the one above.  It's a commercial for the Shopping Channel about their Easter Egg Hunt Contest.  Seeing as it's Mom's job to make the commercials, she very perfectly cast me in the role of "Handsome, Adorable Bunny"......enjoy!

Thumps for Mom

Hey Peeps, it's me! Good news, I'm feeling much better! Sorry this update hasn't happened sooner, Mom got sick with food poisoning and moved into the bathroom for a few days.....

Turns out that wee little spur in the back of my mouth was bugging me more than we thought. I'm eating like a little piggy and back on track. As proof, please see the video above of me reminding my Stupid Blankets of who is in charge around here. I'm back baby, I'M BACK!

Mom is still giving me Critical Care but I'm not that interested in it anymore - I'd much rather eat my hay and pellets again. She still wants me to have a wee little bit in the mornings and evenings and tonight, she got a little sloppy. "Whoops! Sorry Fluffs, I just dropped a glob on you. Where did it go.....?"

Hey, watch it, your hands are cold! Stop groping my nether regions!

*sigh* "There's a big blob of it somewhere. Where is it......oh, there it is! Come here, Mommy's gotta wipe you down."

Put me down! I'll groom it off myself. I. WILL. GROOM. IT.OFF. MYSELF!

"Okay, here's some toilet paper..........stay still...........Fluffy, stay still!"

Sheeeeeeeeeeeesh! I can do this Mom, really!

"Oh, almost gone.......couple of more wipes......and.......yes! Got it! Well, most of it. You can groom the rest off, right?"

What have I been saying?

"Okay, I'll put you down. Oooooooo, I feel a big thump brewing in those back legs of yours!"

Oh, you got that right.........

"I'm gonna film it! Yeah! Want to show all your peeps how you thump at Mama? Yes you do! Yes you do! Let me get my phone, hang on!"

And thus we have this little video at the bottom......

Thanks to all of my friends who sent me good wishes. They mean a lot and really helped Mom to not worry so much. I've got great bunny buddies <3

Check Up

Here is Miss Binks and I in our carrier.  I went back to the vet for a follow up.  Seems I am favouring Critical Care a lot so Mom figured we needed to go for another check up.  Miss Binks came along for the ride because hey, we like to be together and when we are not together, we get sad.  Look at how pretty she is with her face in the sunlight.  I'm behind her contemplating an escape.......

Dr. Marco gave me a check up and he thinks that it might be a good idea to get my teeth examined more closely.  That means bringing me back and having me sedated so that a good, proper examination can be done, and if there are any spikes on my teeth, they can be filed down.  Dr. Marco saw one that he thought might be bothering me but he thinks there may be more he can't see.  Mom and Dad are not too pleased about having to bring me back and having me put under - I haven't been put under since I lost my "boys" 7 years ago - so they are a little nervous.  Binky will come with me and she can stay with me in the cage while I recover.  Mom is going to take the day off work so that she can be available to bring us home as soon as we are ready.

So that's the update on me.  Don't worry my peeps, I am doing well.  I am eating all my Critical Care and my salads and hopefully after a tooth trim I will be back to scarfing down some hay.  My poops are good and my mood is as spirited as ever!  And to prove it, see below for a video of me in my carrier, keeping my Stupid Blanket in line.....

Mom is a worrier.  She says she will not be able to sleep until this procedure is over and I am back to normal.  I keep telling her not to worry, but I think it would really help her if you all could send some good thoughts our way.  I'm not a young bunny anymore and any type of procedure at my age is risky so Mom says the more good thoughts, the better!

I will post again after Thursday for an update on my teeth and to let you all know how I am doing.  Thanks for all the support many of you have already sent my way - I really appreciate it!
