November's Winner is...

Drum roll, please!... the names were written on little slips of paper and tossed in a dish. I thought I would be clever, mix a little dried fennel with the paper - maybe a little some enticing.  Well, it was a good idea anyway...

Cooper, what do you think?
Hmmm, something smells good... but no...

Surely this will be an easy task. Dot will you pick one?
You did a very nice job Mommy, but I would have preferred more fennel...

Well, heck... where did Cooper go?  I'll try him again.  Oh Cooper, if I place this nice dish in your cage will you please draw a name?
Just to get this thing out of my cage I will. This one is rather yummy.  Oops!.. the name is about to disappear down Cooper's gullet!..

Oh Cooper thank you! Who's name is it?
Congratulations to Sharon!
Ms. Sharon please send me your address so I can get Autumn in the mail to you :)

Thank you everyone for entering!  Stay tuned for December's giveaway coming up soon... it's going to be a "doozy"!!!!

Working on pictures

I bought a pair of antlers, got a fun Santa hat, and even a cute elf-ish collar...and what did I use with the buns this weekend? None of them, not even one... oh well, I guess there is a few more days before Christmas, and I've been late before.  Stubborn, I think that is the true meaning of the word 'bunny'... Anyway, I did some cute pictures of black bunny attitude to share.

November's Giveway.. Autumn's Dance

Now that things have settled down, it's time to start November's giveaway.
Without further ado, meet Autumn:

Our sweet little Autumn, loves to run and jump in the falling leaves. She can jump high above the long grasses and dance with the harvest moon, prancing in the face of the coming chill of winter. This  bunny expresses the blithe spirit of your heart in the face of change. Wearing her is embracing the seasons and letting your inner rabbit dance for all to see!...

Autumn is hand carved from cherry wood, she is surrounded by wood beads and wonderfully light antique silver rondelles.. one of the prettiest strands we have ever hung a pendant upon..

She is a large gorgeous wood pendant on an 19" (47.4 cm) long necklace with a lobster clasp.

Smudge-3 Mom-0

I just have to say it's very difficult to give a 13lb Californian bunny boy oral meds when he does not want to take them. Smudge is doing well, he is still very active and full of attitude. When it comes to giving him his reglan, well, it's just not a job I like doing. I get some in him, some on his dewlap, and a lot of me. I never knew how much liquid a bunny could hold in his mouth... but as my hubby said, I wear it well.. haha!

Smudgie started eatting decently on his own today, finally. There is even a decent pile of pooties in the litterbox. It helped my bunspace order came in, willow leaves seems to be the food of choice.  I hope it continues, and not just for my pant's sake.

Sleepy Smudge Love, another older picture. I just love his eyes.

His Smudgeness

Just a quick update, Smudge is home. The vet gave me an option to let him spend another night there or bring him home. She found a couple of sharp spurs on his right bottom molars, although she said it didn't appear to cause any trouble to his tongue. Smudge is not impressed, he thumped me good on the way home and is still refusing most food. He will get more reglan in the morning, and some critical care if he doesn't eat more overnight. For the duration, we are on pootie watching patrol... what fun..

On the up side, the vet called Smudge "cantankerous" several times on the phone! haha!  My boy is still my boy :)

Smudgy update

Thank you everyone for the well wishes! My baby boy is staying the night at the vets. The vet gave him a shot of reglan, but his output still isn't what it should be so they are going to keep him and give another shot tonight and again in the morning. If the shots don't set things back in motion, the vet is going to put him under slightly to check his teeth and do lab work. Then we'll go from there.

In the good news department, the vet commented that Smudge was very strong. He is refusing to help out with any of his care, refusing to open his mouth for feeding (he's chewing the syringe) and struggling when they try to clean him up. haha! At least my boy knows how to have a good time. (not!)

So the saga continues. Stay tuned.

Smudge Love needs Love

Smudge, in happier days
My Smudgy boy is feeling poorly. He had some gas issues on Friday, and I gave him the standard meds. He started to snap out of it Saturday and was doing much better on Sunday. Then this morning he refused treats again, so more meds. Tonight he ate a bite of banana, a bit of papaya and a couple of bits of alfalfa hay, but not any anything else. He will be dropped at the vets in the morning - she isn't in office on Mondays - so if any spare vibes would be appreciated for my boy.

Will post what the vet says. I threw out all the pellets, and greens and hay because I've had a couple of other bunnies had a bit of issues this weekend as well. I do hope they can help Smudge easily, my poor sweetie has never really been sick before.  Thanks everyone.
