The audio is tough, so you’ll really need to turn things up a lot to hear it. But I think you can catch just a little bit. At the end, she wakes up and pulls away… but it’s still a win to me, because I got to hold her as she was sleeping. Just for a little bit.
Liz and I went together with the bunnies to Ness Exotics. Both were there to get a vaccination shot for a particularly scary disease, that has officially cropped up in Illinois: Rabbit Hemorrhagic Disease.
Hugo is a pretty chill rabbit, but it’s always funny to remember just how sizable he is (especially compared to Daisy). I feel like those ears could pick up stealth bomber activity, over the Eastern seaboard.
Spotted both bunnies, stretched out and relaxed. Liz and I were both remarking: “Check out those gams!”
Daisy has had some “problems” with her hind area, for a while now. Things have gotten a bit out of hand, and tonight we decided to give her a bit of a span night. Mostly, this involved an old litter tray, some warm water, and a butt bath.
As you can imagine, she wasn’t quite happy with us.
In the waiting area. I don’t know what’s funnier – the cover of “Modern Cat,” or the fact that the dog magazine is called “drool.”
It’s been a while since Daisy and Hugo had their nails trimmed. They were overdue, to say the least. And so this means… burrito time!
The flop at the end of the video is icing on the cake. We’ve rarely seen Daisy over on her side like this, so it’s a testament to how comfortable she must have gotten. I will say – it makes me a little nervous, seeing how much she’s been sleeping lately.
Tonight, Hugo was content to just hang out while Daisy more or less fell asleep on top of his head.
We have this plastic tunnel thing that we bring out, from time to time. It’s older, and not something Hugo has really seen before.
Tonight, Liz threw few pellets inside to encourage Hugo to explore. Because Hugo, for all his size and weight, is still something of a scaredy cat.
Daisy has had this kind of fun before, but the “Hay Sampler” is a new experience for Hugo. We opened up this big box, and watched to see what the bunnies would do.
For no good reason, here’s a short video of Daisy and Hugo, chewing on a bit of cardboard.
I tried to be very quiet and slow, for fear of startling her. I got a few quick photos, and then decided to take some video of her just… well, sitting there. And then this happened:
This one is more of a replacement for the constant stream of cardboard structures we’ve made for them. We didn’t want to use another two-story structure, for fear of Daisy’s failing eyesight. Better to keep things low to the ground.
Tonight when we were sitting with the bunnies (a nightly ritual for us, near the end of the evening), Hugo was bopping around some. But Liz and I were laughing at Daisy, who was just sitting still, with this kind of far-off daze on her face. Just totally checked out and indifferent.
