New Year Check Ups

Yes, it's that time of year.  At the beginning of every year, all us bunnies get carted out to see Dr. Deb for our annual check ups.  Here I am on the table getting molested by Dr. Deb.  Don't get me wrong, she's nice and all, but I just don't understand why she has to poke at my belly and stick things in my ears and mouth.  I try to wiggle out of her grasp, but being such a light bunny, they can get a pretty good hold on me.  The verdict?  I'm a lean, mean, Big Tough Lop Machine!  And I showed everyone just how I felt when I was allowed back in my carrier - I gave them a Big Tough Lop thump!
Here is Binky in Daddy's arms.  She had her check up first and then Daddy snuggled her for the rest of the visit because that's what she likes.  She can be a Nervous Nellie so he likes to make sure she is all calmed down before she goes back into the carrier.  And she got a treat too.  We all get treats after our exams for being such good little bunnies - even when we are not such good little bunnies :)  Dr. Deb says that Binky has really good muscle tone for her age, and that for *almost* 10 years old, she is in very good shape.  Binky attributes this to all of the beauty sleep and snorgling she insists on getting.

Scooter was next.  Poor Scoots.  He has being showing his age as of late - he turned 9 in November.  Mom and Dad are pretty sure he's deaf and he has also developed cataracts in both his eyes, rendering him pretty much blind.  Because he can't hear or see means that he's slowed down a lot.  It's been hard for Mom and Dad to watch but they count their blessings every day.  Scooter still eats well and poops well and plays with his toys so he's still a happy boy.  But Mom and Dad sure wish old age wasn't catching up with him - or with any of us for that matter.  But otherwise, Scooter is a healthy boy, so Mom and Dad are very happy about that :)  Here is a picture of him in his new Christmas Sweater!

Ana Banana was last and of course, she was an absolute angel.  The angry, grunty, boxy, bitey girl we've all grown to love didn't show an ounce of her true self.  Dr. Deb didn't believe us when we told her what Ana is really like at home until we showed her the video of Ana ripping apart her Christmas stocking and attacking everyone.  *sigh*  But that's why we love her - she's a real firecracker!  Ana does have some sore hocks on her feet so Dr. Deb showed us how to use vet wrap to wrap her feet up.  Well, let's just say Ana Banana is none too crazy for her new footwear and has turned shredding vet wrap into an Olympic sport.  Poor Mom keeps trying to put them on, sometimes even using fingers from gloves as little legwarmers but Ana will have no part of it.  Mom is going to keep trying though in hopes that Ana will just get used to it and leave them alone. *snort* How silly is that idea? 

So we are all done for another year.  Oh yeah, and I'm back on that stinky panacur for 30 days that helps keep my EC at bay.  Can't wait until I finish that bottle! 

Hope all of my peeps are staying nice and warm during this cold winter!  McFluffersons, over and out!

Our Christmas Video!

I've been giving Mom the business because it's taken her so long to post about our Christmas haul.  Mom said she had an issue with the video and wanted to wait until she could fix it, so here we are!

Christmas was great!  Santa Paws once again looked the other way when I was bad this last year and brought us all kinds of cool stuff!  Binks and I got this new straw Carrot Patch toy which I initially wasn't too impressed with, but I really like tossing the carrots now.  Mom will put them all back in the patch and that is my cue to sprint over and rip them all out and fling them in the air with reckless abandon.

Binky got her highly coveted bag of persimmon slices from the Bunspace store.  She loves them very much and Santa brings them every year just for her.  Mom is in charge of making sure she shares because when it comes to treats, especially her persimmon slices, sharing is not on the top of her agenda.  Me, I'm not too fond of them so I usually let Binks get them all and I will happily take a raisin instead.

Scooter, one of the bunnies that lives upstairs, got a cardboard Christmas Tree that he has been shredding on a daily basis.  He is really into cardboard so Santa Paws really hit the nail on the head with that gift for him.  And Ana Banana, the other upstairs bunny, she got a willow boot, which she managed to completely decimate in about a day and a half.  She is a very angry girl and decimation is her specialty, as you will see in the video as she opens her stocking.

And wee Louise, she got lots of hammy treats and a wooden bridge to hang in her cage, although Mom isn't sure there will be enough room for it in there.  Louise already has so much stuff in her cage - two fiddle sticks, a corn husk tunnel, a swing, a ledge, tunnels, a wheel and her Sputnik, Mom will probably have to remove some things in order to get the new bridge in there.

So without further ado, here we are in our Christmas video!  I hope all of my peeps had a great holiday and a very happy new year!
