February's Winner is...


Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, of a jewelry giveaway.. about a skipper and her band o' buns, fennel, name slips and hay!..

It's time to give away our Jaquesline pendant.. she's so special that the buns were apparently wanting to keep her here.. First Bella, the everpresent volunteer and bravest bunny in the world, nibbled a bit at the names, but would not draw..  




Then Ferd took a sniff, and said "I like Jaquesline here"..




Dot wouldn't sit still even to discuss, but then Super Duper Cooper, the household name-picker, flicked out of his cage!.. of course, he ran back in the cage but entertained drawing from the top level of his castle.. 




Coop nibbled, sniffed, tossed a couple around but did not find a name until he decided to EAT Angela's name slip.. so we played the "give me that", "no, I want to swallow it" game.. and Angela won the drawing and Jaquesline, sent her her by Cooper with lots of teary goodbyes from all in the warren..





Congratulations, Angela!.. we know you will love this piece.. from the number of "I Want"'s on the blogs and messages, she was greatly coveted.. a message has been sent to Angela, and, on her response, Jaquesline will be swimming to her way soon, from Cooper with love!!





Thank you all for entering. Stay tuned for March's giveaway.. not giving anything away right now, but don't be surprised if it has big ears!.. No, it's not my Hunny Bunny Husband, he's mine!.. but it will be just as cute!

Then Came Dead Head Fred

Sometimes something you know will happen actually does happen, and it turns out to be a really good thing... Let me tell you about my February 12th in 2007:


We went to pick up a little black bunny from some people who didn't want him anymore. The baby bunny had been bought by a girl.. her parents didn't want him..so she took him to college, but the semester was over so the roommate took him home to Dad.. Dad's family didn't want him so he went to Mom's, but Mom's family didn't want him... So how did we end up with this little one? Well 'Mom' was neighbors with my hubby's ex who knew we have rabbits.  He was named Fred or Dead Head Fred per the 'Dad'. They kept him in a small cage in the garage, where dear ol' Dad like to hang out and smoke some um... stuff not bought at stores,  where he had the dog trying to get at him and the coyotes at night trying to get to him and who knows what else. When I saw him, there were a few things I knew right away: Fred was a lionhead, Fred was definitely male, and really didn't like to be handled. He was just so adorable!  Just look at that face:

We didn't know what we were going to do with him. We kept him in an xpen until we could figure out where to put another cage. One day hubby came home from work, and called me. It seems Ferd knew where he belonged and it was with our Bunko.
So where exactly did we get Ferd from Dead Head Fred? Well, obviously 'Dead Head' had to go away - not a good bunny name. Fred was ok and I wanted to go for a Freddy Mercury reference, but hubby kept talking about how furry he was. So it became Furr'd, then Ferdinand, then Ferdy and because he is a true lionhead with the patented lionhead bounce came Ferdy Birdy. Plus he gave me one of my favorite bunny pictures of all time, I call it "Feed the Snout"
Ferd had a real thing for chairs for a while. I could go on and on about this little one. It's obvious he went through a lot, the multiple homes, the loss of Bunko, but he made it through it with all his little Ferdy ways. He even accepts rubs when he's really sleepy or I catch him off guard.
Happy Fifth Gotcha day my little bounder boy.
Many, many more happy returns.
