Three Years In A Row!

"They say a picture is worth a thousand words?
Well, this is the face that will sell
a thousand calendars."


He did it again.

For the third year in a row, Mr. Mick has been chosen to appear in the annual Bunspace calendar--proceeds from sales of which go to the House Rabbit Society.

Needless to say, we are quite thrilled and honored; his pic (the one shown above) was one of 93 chosen out of 770 entries. His Majesty did make an attempt at being humble about it, but that lasted about five minutes before he demanded extra treats and a promise of a full-bun massage later this evening.

He's already gotten some extra spoiling already; last night, we went out to dinner with some friends of mine, Kayla and Ryan. They are also bunny slaves (to Freddie, a Holland Lop, and Luna, a Silver Marten) and are longtime fans of Mr. Mick, but had never gotten the chance to meet him in person until last night. His Majesty was quite gracious; he not only allowed both of them to pet him, but to hold him as well. Kayla was even granted an extra-long snuggle session; he perched on her shoulder and gave her kisses, much to her delight. Both went home with a souvenir gift of a fur sweater, compliments of Mr. Sheddy Bun.

In other news, I was the lucky winner of the Lavender Rabbit Studios June giveaway--and look at the lovely gift I got!


Her name is Miss Anastasia, and she is just gorgeous. She came with a lovely card, and a willow ring for Mr. Mick, but I was so excited, I never got a picture of them. I snapped a couple of quick pics and put her on immediately.


Here is a closeup--she comes with a copper chain that matches her copper fastenings and background perfectly. Thanks again to Donna for giving away such a gorgeous piece--and to Dot for picking my name!

What a lucky bunny household! How nice of Mr. Mick to graciously accept his subjects' tributes--and to gift them with their own personal sweaters! What's next for His Bunness of calendar fame and his bunny slave of jewelry winning success? (Is Mr. Mick just about recovered from his recent ills?)

Jade said...

He is almost fully recovered, although there is one area that is questionable (could be scar tissue, but we're keeping an eye on it just in case). So far, though, everything is looking good.

Congrats to the ever handsome Mr. Mick!! We will be looking for his picture in the upcoming calendar. And thank you for posting pictures of Miss. Anastasia, I know she's found the perfect home :)

Congrats all round! That's a lovely necklace and a wonderful photo of Mickey. Glad he's doing well!

Michelle May (Shell) said...

Congratulations! Though you know I'm really not surprised, as who wouldnt want to see Mickeys gorgeous photo!

Malcolm Russell said...

Hey Jade,
Congratulations to the wee one. It'll probably go to his head but he deserves it.

Anastasia is beautiful, you lucky girl! As for the calendar boy, how could they resist him? He's so adorably squishy looking, you just want to hug him.

Clovie Boy said...

Congrats to that handsome boy! Now that he's getting so famous I suppose he'll have an entourage whenever he goes anywhere.

Rabbits' Guy said...

Of course, why not? He is The Mick! Gloat, Mickey!

Mickey said...

Thanks to one and all for the congratulations. I am currently taking applications for the position of "entourage"--the job will include petting, dispensing of treats, the occasional fluffing of my throne and some light litterbox cleaning. Applicants must be non-smokers, non-perfume/after-shave wearers and must be willing to tolerate the occasional fur sweater.

Lisa said...

So much to congratulate you on! Congratulations to Mr. Mick! 3 years in a row? the little man-bun is a celebrity! Too cool for the likes of us i'm sure.
And congrats to Jade on your win!!! Such a lovely gift.

Can Biffy and Sogna apply for the entourage? They don't have opposable thumbs to clean litter boxes but they said their mom will take care of it, also, we could start a little lop gang!

SixBunnies said...

Yeah for Mick! Both for the calendar spot and for his recovery! Love him much!!!!

Hi, firstly - I am so happy to hear that Mr Mick is feeling better and secondly congratulations on making the calender well done.

Oh and of course, congratulations also for winning the gorgeous bunny - the copper accent is just stunning, beautiful.

Take care, and thanks for stopping by our blog and your words of support, they are greatly appreciated at this time, yollie

Does that qualify for Mick to have his paw prints made in the Bun Walk of Fame?

SixBunnies said...

It's those pawsies! His feetsies are just too much ... those little froggie legs all ready to hop! His face! All of Mick is so amazing! :)
