Four Years in a Row!

The results are in for this year's Bunspace calendar contest (for those who don't know, each year Bunspace puts out a calendar with pictures submitted and voted on by their members. A portion of the entry fees and sales of the calendar go to the House Rabbit Society. ) and this year, not only has Mr. Mick been voted in for the fourth year in a row, but he will have TWO pictures in the calendar!

These are the two pictures that were chosen:


Needless to say, a celebration was in order:

"Om nom nom...mmmmmm, willow..."

"You do realize that we are going to have to renegotiate
my contract; after all, I am a top-of-the-line superbunmodel now.
I'm going to need more treats per day, a proper masseuse, 
some new thrones for sure...perhaps some Perrier in my water dish..."

*sigh*  Some bunnehs are just impossible to deal with...

Anyway, keep an eye on this blog, because once the calendar is available, there will most likely be a giveaway involved. Now, I need to fix His Majesty his breakfast before he decides he wants his lettuce hand-picked and his pellets polished. See you later!

Guess Who's 5 Today!

"Five? Somebunny is five today?"

Yes, Mick--do you know who that somebunny is?

"Hmmmmm...let me think..."

"Nope, can't think of anybunny. Who's five today, Mum?"

Why don't you check out what the cookies say, Mick?


"Y'know, it would help if they were facing the right way..."

Oooops, sorry. Ok, I'll read them off for you: M-I-C-K-E-Y...

"Mickey? Mickey! Hey, that's me! I'm FIVE today! "

Yes, yes you are, Happy Birthday, Mick!

"Thanks, Mum! Hey, are these cookies? Mmmmm, cookies..."

Yes, those are Bunspace birthday cookies, and His Majesty has already eaten the "M" (which, as The Boy says, now makes him "ickey"...I hope not, a birthday butt-bath would not be cool.) He gets a letter a day so we don't end up with any tummy troubles.

Of course, somebunny had his own idea about what he should get for his birthday:

"Ooh, what's this? A whole container of oats for me?!"

"Empty?! Drats. No fair, Mum."

Yes, somebunny loves his oats, as evidenced by the mugging I suffer on a daily basis trying to put oats in his pellet dish:

In honor of Mick's birthday, we will be making a donation to the Berkshire Humane Society, which is where we adopted him. Happy Birthday, my baby bun!

A gift for Mr. Mick

Mr. Mick got a gift in the mail today; a lovely handknit scarf from his friend Speedy (the scarf was made by Speedy's mum).

Mick loved the scarf, and being the superbunmodel that he is, insisted on a photo session so he could show it off.

"Why yes, I am a dapper bun-about-town
and I can rock a scarf like nobody's business."

Unfortunately, his photographer (me) chose what Mr. Mick considered to be inferior material for the shot: 

"What the--?! What is THIS?! *digdigdig* A common SHEET?!
*digdigdig* Are you out of your mind?! I cannot be seen on THIS!
*digdigdig* WHERE IS MY THRONE?!"

His Majesty dug at the offending item until I convinced him that we only needed a couple more shots and that he would be compensated for his pain and suffering with some extra oats. That calmed him down somewhat.

"Hmph...fine...I suppose it will have to do...I am a professional, after all.
*grumbling* at least one of us is, anyway...a sheet, good gawd..."

"You are SO hearing from my agent about this."

*sigh* He is so difficult to work with sometimes...

By the way, if your bun would like a lovely scarf for him- or herself, Speedy and his mum are having a giveaway on his blog, and there are two scarves up for grabs, so go there and be sure to enter. 

Thanks very much for the awesome gift, Speedy and Rachel!
