Because Mum is slacking off yet again...

...I have to do her job for her--again.  Honestly, Mum, is this really all that hard?


Here's what I've been up to lately; back on the 17th, Mum and I went back to our local Petco to do an education event for the House Rabbit Connection, teaching people why rabbits make great pets, but not great Easter gifts.


I had my usual swanky digs, although Mum wouldn't let me hide in my tunnel like she did last time...



...so I took refuge in my litterbox when I wanted a break (or needed a snack):


This time, I was sharing the spotlight with a pair of lovely ladies:


Reina the lionhead and Reese the Rex. Nice girls, they knew how to rock the sister act...


...especially in their litterbox.

Needless to say, the event was a success. Everyone oohed and aahed over us. One of the local newspapers sent a reporter and a photographer to take our pictures and write about us. Mum talked to a lot of people and I got lots and lots of petting.

It was a great day...except for one little thing. When the newspaper article came out, it had three pictures in it--and not one of them was of me! Not one!




Now I ask you--how does not including this face sell papers?!

I wouldn't be so miffed if the same thing hadn't happened last month with the Rabbit Rally. A very nice lady   wrote a very nice article in one of the other local papers about the Rally, but there were no pictures of me in it. (There was one picture identified as me, but it wasn't me.)

Now, I don't blame the nice lady because I know she took a lot of pictures of me, and I don't blame the photographer who took the other pictures because I know she took pictures of me--but there's a couple of newspaper editors who are going to get poop in their shoes if I have anything to say about it. Humph.


Ok, I'm feeling better now. A snack always helps.

Anyway, Mum did take a lot of pics of me--and the girls, too. You can see them here.

One more thing--I want to wish a very Hoppy Birthday to my beloved Auntie Shell . Her birthday is March 27 (which should be today if this posts at the right time). Auntie Shell, Mum and I sent you a birthday gift with the help of the Lavender Rabbits . We hope you like it! Have the bestest birthday ever!

Sending you nose bonks and bunny kisses,
your nephew Mickey

If you were nearby, I'd totally stop by to take pictures of you and let you teach me how to properly pet a rabbit, how to feed a bunny treats and all that other important stuff!

I shall have to settle with a chocolate bunny. *Sniff* They're not nearly as good at snuggling and disapproving looks tho!

Lorna, Mick says that you are welcome to come see us for bunny education classes even though he knows that you are already an excellent bunny-slave. He says he blames those foo' gerbils for any possible corruption in technique. He sends lots of nose bonks and bunny kisses as well!

oh Mickey your photo should have been on the front page of every newspaper in the world!

Reina is adorable, what a beauty...

Tamsin said...

Well that's just shocking! I think you should write a letter to the editor and complain.

Excellent work, Mickey and Jade! I agree, Mr. Mick...no newspaper pics of you? They missed out on Mr. Photogenic himself!

Those photographers have your pics pasted all over their homes, they just didn't want to share with the public. WE are SOOOO lucky to get see you on your blog and in your calendar, hoping next year Bunspace does pics of JUST YOU <3

Mr. Mick you did a great job!

Hef's Mom said...

Hang in there Mick, sometimes getting a big break is tough!

Rabbits' Guy said...

YA done good Mick and Mam ... the message got out and that was most important - except of course for the treats!!!

Karen M said...

Mickey, the editor was probably a boy, and he just naturally gravitated to the pictures of the girls. I'm sure you know how that goes. Can't change the facts of life....

Hello, I don't know if you remember me but I just wanna say thank you for your kind words, they really helped me to cope with the rough days after Billy's passing. My upset level has plateaued now, I'm still mourning but at least I'm not wailing every second. The good news is that her urn is finally home, which I continue to talk to (hope that doesn't make me sound crazy...).

I love seeing you and Mickey (who always looks so silly and grumpy!), happy and healthy. To Mickey: you have the loveliest bun-mom :)

Jade, wish you and Mick the best of times and stay hoppy!
