Mr. Bun Update

Bum brush. I got a bum brush this week. Hoomin figured out he can dry me better when he brushes my bum while working the hair dryer.

Oh, you think that's cute? When was the last you got a bum brush? See?

All in all, that's all got to complain about this week.

Hoomin said he's been thinking a lot about me this week when at the tar pits. He said tar was extra, extra viscous and smelly. He said I kept him from throwing in the ladle.  Action at a distance again.

Today, though, we have a full day ahead of us that's going to be filled with snurgles and head rubs!

The Disapprovers - As You Think So You Move

Last Week on the Disapprovers: The Disapprovers agree to explore a strange substance the discovered at the end of an underground object. Mr. Toes volunteers to step into it and becomes overwhelmed by the completely unknow environment and its properties.
For the moment, I decided to focus on my breath and the image of Abby in my mind. It gave me a sense of purpose and the illusion of being in control of the situation. When the 3 minutes are up, Zeus will pull me out. I had to believe that. I was going to stick to our plan. I tried to relax as much as I could, because my face hurt from tensing up and my eyelids stung from their vise-like grip on my eyeballs.
I imagined Abby resting by the entrance to our tunnel in the yard. She seemed to doze. Wait, I thought they were keeping a watch! In that picture, the sun was out and I could hear the birds raising a ruckus. Next to her sat Bruno, awake, but grooming himself instead of looking out for dingoes and ocelots. Was it a moving picture I made up? I tried to imagine getting closer to Abby and shoving my head under her side. She was so warm and soothing, and her fur felt so real. But just as I thought I had nestled in, she sat up startled and started cleaning her side. I noticed Bruno sit up straight, as if he had sensed danger.
Instinctively, I backed away a little. Abby looked distraught and vigilant, with a very puzzled look on her face. She squinted her eyes and thumped. She did not lay down again. I'd hoped we could nose bonk, but she didn't budge. Was my imagination failing me too? All this was just in my imagination, wasn't it? The loud birds sung on unabated, but I can't recall trying to imagine any birds or their songs. I only tried to picture moving to Abby's other side to snuggle again. She jumped again and then scooted over a little.
The scene became quite still, except for the incessant cardinals in the tree. I looked up at them. What they lacked in numbers they made up for in verve. Their tiny, red bodies clashed with the dark, blue sky so much, that they tricked me into seeing thin, black borders around them where the red touched the blue. The tree, on the other hand, was getting ready for some well deserved winter rest, shedding its leaves and glistening in the high sun. Its naked branches seemed to cut up the sky like lightning. The day was so clear that when I looked straight up, the crystal blue sky wanted to turn black. And then, for no reason, I binkied. Hard enough to make Schrödinger proud. Because when a bun binkies hard enough, just for a second, it's impossible to tell if the bun is a bun or a pretzel.
The strange thing was, I could feel the imaginary binky in my body, right where I was. I could feel the cold air on my whiskers and I had to squint a little in the bright sun light. I had created and held a pretty convincing mental image before, but this took it to a whole new level. I mean, I was still in this...., mystery goop, wasn't I? Or did I pass out, did I start hallucinating, or..., worse...
Bruno, Molly and Suzy
It was time to open my eyes and try to look around again. The imagined scene started fading as the darkness of my suspension took over. But now..., I could see something! It wasn't much. Just a little light outline of my body. It looked like it was glowing just a tiny bit. Around me floated some glowing, thick, hairy yarn.
It was growing out of my glowing torso and paws. When I tried to shake one off, it just rippled and waved. Some of them were fading into the dark. Some were rolled up into a small tumbleweed in the center of this place. If you think the tumbleweed gave off more light than individual strands, it didn't. Its light was as muted as the rest of the yarn strands. When I tried to touch some of the yarn, my paw went right through it.
Mr. Toes and Abby Suzy
Looking down (I thought it might be down) toward my hind paws, then up to see if there was a top or a bottom to this place, I couldn't make out any boundaries. It was still very dark here and the ambient light was extremely weak. I realized I was moving when I tried to direct my sight somewhere. Looking down felt like turning down too. My body seemed to follow my focus. I concentrated on one of those floating strands of yarn and I floated toward it.
If I willed myself to turn around and move, would I get back to the spot I entered through? Maybe I could grab that darn tether.
I checked my watch again. It was definitely busted and showed only 2 seconds had passed. 2 seconds. Right.
Mr. Toes Molly
Turning my head back and looking behind me I saw the tether and I tried to follow it along. I kept moving. I really kept moving! It was hard to tell if this place really was bigger on the inside. I had never seen it from the outside. It simply felt like I had to drift for a long time before I got to the boundary with the outside. Then as quickly as I had entered, I exited.
Out of the goop and sprawled out I was looking up at Molly and Zeus. They looked extremely concerned.
"Are you ok?!?" asked Molly."
Mr. Toes
I..., I'm not sure. I'm feeling kind of sick to my stomach."
Rolling over onto my side, I decided to wait before attempting to get up. Maybe my gut would settle down if I let myself rest? "Zeus, why didn't you try to pull me out after 3 minutes?" I asked.
"You've been gone for just a moment. We're talking seconds!." said Zeus. "You went in and you came out. I think we lost your signal when you disappeared, so it's a good thing you came out. Good thinking. No sense wondering about with broken com, right?"
"He's back, he seems to be ok." radioed Molly.
"Seconds?!?" I said.
"Yeah, what a bummer. I'm a little concerned by your radio going out though. Sorry you didn't get to explore much, Major."

Mr. Bun Update

We got this morning routine going where I get a papaya supplement and couple of oxbow supplement while my hoomin cleans up. This morning there were dandelions as well. Now they're a real treat.

Bum bufs are occasional and as needed. We're coming up on 2 months of my belleh humming like clock work and it's been easier on all of us.

I've done an EBA on Friday night. Somehow the hoomin dared to plop down to watch X-Files without me! Well, we took care of that. I got scooped up and enjoyed all the head rubs until I got restless.

We'll keep you posted.

The Disapprovers - Not So Silly Putty

Last Week on the Disapprovers: Mr. Toes, Molly and Zeus enter the mystery object found at the deep end of the artery. They quickly explore and traverse it to what they consider its endpoint. There, they come in contact with a strange substance and Mr. Toes is tempted to enter it.
Strangely enough, I felt very safe. Among the watch crew, a heated discussion broke out. Abby wanted us to gather up whatever samples we could and to return. Suzy wanted to wait. She calculated that we had another couple of hours before we would have to start working our way to the top. We were all fascinated by the wall of goop in front of us. The both tried to touch it and put their paws in it. I stepped up to it again and swiped my paw through it and I felt my paw slide across something. I jumped back and started thumping. Old instincts took over before I could blink. Everybunny else took a step back too. Aren't we supposed to have rayguns or something for moments like these? Zeus had a screwdriver; I think. I sure could use a raspberrini.
Everybun got quiet. We watched as a small nose emerged from the substance, then eyes and ears, followed by a careful step of a small, fuzzy foot. A young and frightened raccoon came out. It was hard to tell who was more relieved. The raccoon feller moved forward, never taking his eyes off of us. He paused and asked, "What time is it?"
"Half past noon." said Zeus.
The raccoon started trotting into the pipe, stopped suddenly, looked back at us and asked "Is it still Wednesday?"
"All day today." answered Molly.
He said "Thanks!", smiled and quickly moved on.
"What in hay was that all about?!?" asked Suzy.
"We'll let you know as soon as we find out." responded Molly, drawing out her words.
Zeus grimaced, tilted his head and said, "... hm, at least it's safe."
"Sure it is!", jabbed Abby with sarcasm.
"I want to find out for myself." I stated matter-of-factly. I knew what every bunny was thinking. They were afraid and curious at the same time. Afraid to go in and hesitant to retreat.
Mr. Toes Molly and Suzy
"Tether, Zeus, put a tether on me; give me 3 minutes in there and pull me out if you don't see me coming out. Is everybunny ok with that?" I asked.
"Rope him good!" said Suzy.
We all checked and coordinated our watches. Molly did the tethering honors. Zeus double checked how it was tied to the back of my vest. We got our stop watches ready. I felt just like before stepping out of a perfectly good airplane, wondering which part within me made me go through the motions of getting in the door and pushing off into the open space. How did the other parts get suspended, becoming passive observers? There's nothing heroic about it, it's only been fascinating me to no end and it remains a mystery.
I gave the count, "Ready, set, go!" and went in.
Mr. Toes Freddie
It was blackness and darkness like I've never seen before and for a second I thought I went blind. I heard some bunstronauts talk about how dark the outer space is and guessed this had to be close. I couldn't tell what was going on. I tried to move my paws, but I couldn't get any traction, I felt weightless and suspended. There was no sensation of falling though. My gut started feeling a little queasy, vertigo didn't help either. My temperature and heartbeat went up and if I managed not to get a heart attack, Frankie would, when he saw my telemetry. Were they still getting my telemetry? I was breathing. At least I was breathing. I could feel my vest still on me. I attempted to reach the tether on my back to give it 3 yanks. No joy. I knew I was close to it, but I just couldn't reach it. I felt for my watch and pressed the illuminating button. The green glow of the dial showed only a second had passed. Did my watch go out?!?
Molly Mr. Toes
I tried to transmit, "Zeus, anybunny, radio check!", but I couldn't even hear my own voice. No bun responded. I checked my watch again, it had to be stuck, the count hasn't changed! Worse, when I pointed the light around, it didn't illuminate anything. Nothing at all. I reached for my little torch and turned it on. Same thing, the beam of light caught nothing, no matter where I pointed it. It didn't even catch any part of me. How could I hold the flashlight, point it at myself and still see nothing? Not even myself?
I turned the torch off and carefully stowed it on my vest, not even sure why. My paws were shaking. I held my breath for a while. Exhaled slowly and deeply. I forced my eyelids shut and repeated the breath cycle several times. The only light I could perceive was an imagined one. I concentrated on a memory of Molly and Zeus from a short while ago. Then the image of Abby came to semi focus. I took another slow breath.

Carrots, you forgot carrots! Did you have to sleep in the garage that night? ... and they smell funny.

- Thank you Rick!

Tuesday, February 16, 2016


Do you know what I like? Head rubs and tv chords. I feel I'll be enjoying lots and lots of one or the other, any minute now.

- Thank you Kayla!

Monday, February 15, 2016


Surly, you must be joking, hoomin, if you think I'll move before you and M*nd*y are out of sight!

- Thank you Monica!

Mr. Bun Update

Snurgles Everybunny!

Hope you're having a wonderful Valentine's Day.

I think I'll demand extra treats and headrubs. I enjoyed another week of good, boring routine. Somehow I'm doing fine living on hay and pellets, critical care treats and occasional green and berries. My hoomin thought I'd vanish without having pounds of greens to nom.

Hoomin wonders if anyone is familiar SARx Small Animal Recovery (Rabbit Recovery Food)? They claim to be better than Critical Care because they are "Soy-Free" and "Grain-Free" according to their package.

We're just wondering about your experiences with this product ;-)

Suggestions and ideas are always welcome.

Thank you for your patience!

The Disapprovers - Minerals for Thought

Last Week on the Disapprovers: After an encounter with a lynx, Zeus and Mila meet with Molly and Mr. Toes. They prepare to explore a mysterious, tube like object found at the deep end of the artery.
Zeus crossed the boundary between the artery and the pipe thing first. Molly followed and I was last. We paused and took a good look around. Zeus was carefully sniffing around. I did too and it definitely smelled like other critters have gone through here. This tube was maybe 1/4 packed with dirt. It had to take a lot of time and a lot of little footsteps to carry in this much dirt and muck. The 'ceiling' in this tube was maybe 2 bunns telescoping tall. Molly took out her SwissBunny knife and probed the dirt under our feet. It was packed hard. It was softer than sandstone, but not much. Zeus went to the side and tried to scrape the side of the tube. He banged hard on the round wall of the tube, hoping to get a better feel of what it's made of. I expected the sounds of echoing like you'd get in a cave, but his pounding sounded like dull thuds. He chipped off a small piece. We passed it around, feeling its sharp edges and rough surface. I think that stone like coating had to build up over a very long time. I could see very thin layers of different colors. We wondered how thick that stone lining was.
I looked behind me at the artery we had just came out of. I looked at the top where the artery and this tube came into contact. The boundary between them was pretty smooth, as if something snapped off the tube. I wondered why the artery tissue didn't get inside here? Was this tube encased by the artery?
Suzy broke our silence on the radio, "I wonder if this was ever meant for hoomin use? One could only crawl in it."
"Let's move on. We'll try to pick up more samples on our way out.", said Zeus.
Molly and Suzy
We hopped off and approached the set of side entryways on our left and right. Zeus and Molly went right and I approached the one on my left. That entry way was only about 3 bunns long. Its edges were rounded off and smooth and it led into a cavernous chamber. The dirt floor extended into it. I shone my headlight all around and pulled out my flashlight. The place appeared empty and again I could not see any sharp edges or angles anywhere. I stood in the entry way and didn't dare go any further and only stretched as much as I could to get a better look. Coming out of the wall were some tall, cylindrical shapes. Imagine a long, cylindrical pill, the kind that hoomins take, sliced in half lengthwise and emptied. Now imagine the shell of this pill being very, very thick. I presumed they were covered with the same layer of minerals like the rest of this place. One was different though. The furthest one to my right was smaller, appeared to be be complete and covered with something light. That substance was coming out the wall, above the pill and seemed to grow around it. Then it hit me. It was the artery tissue!
"Zeus, Molly, have a look here, please.", I radioed. After they hopped over and stared at it for a while, Zeus looked at me and said, "Do you think this is what I think it is?"
"Yeah, if we put our paws on it it'll expose what's inside it!"
"Ok, let's check on the rover first though, it's just sitting there draining its batteries." said Zeus.
Mr. Toes and Abby
We turned and hopped off toward the rover, stuck in one of these entryways. When we got to it we saw that there were 4 entry ways. The one the rover fell in, one straight above and the 2 on the sides. The rover was resting on something huge and smooth. The mass was sloping a little bit away and toward the inside of the chamber. Zeus jumped in and tried to lift and push up the rover. We pulled on it and we had it out of the hole. We went in after him.
Zeus looked around, slowly lighting the chamber with all of his lights and our flashlights. This chamber was almost entirely filled with something, but under our feet was the same, hard, packed dirt as everywhere else. It still smelled the same, damp and scented with the mix of so many critters. We decided to crawl into it to see if there was another way out of it. It looked like it was leading to more chambers as if it were a mirror image of the structure above us.
We backed out slowly, turned around and returned to the spot where the rover went in. The we simply got up and out on the 'floor' and carried on to the end of the tube. We passed a couple of more entry ways but didn't bother looking in.
Mr. Toes
At the end we found a single large chamber half filled with whatever was under our feet. The place was round and much larger. I think it was as wide as the passage in the pipe we just came through plus the width of 2 chambers. Maybe a hoomin could fit here and even stand up.
Straight ahead of us was something familiar and at the same time foreboding. Remember those dark spots in the artery, that opened up when we put our paws on them? We were looking at something similar, but this one was very dark, almost black, and enormous. The dark colored circle seemed to take up most of the area and it looked like it was blending with the rest of the tube.
After I got done gaping and recovered some of my senses, I stepped forward and got close to it. I was less than a paw's length away from it. I stretched my paw and tried to touch it. My paw went straight in and through. I felt some slight tingling on my digits. When I tried to wiggle and move my paw in there, I felt no resistance of any kind.
Slowly withdrawing my paw I looked at Molly and Zeus. We looked at my paw as I turned and wiggled it. It appeared to be fine, the tingling was gone. What would happen if I stepped inside ... just inside ...

Mr. Bun Update

Greeting Everybunny!

I had a lot of fun helping my hoomin with his chores this week. He was bellehaching about some kitchen duties, so I motivated him.

I did a little EBA before he got up on Tuesday. Drifted all the way to the kitchen. While going to the kitchen I kept going to the bathroom as well. How can a bunn be going to 2 different places at the same time? - quantum mechanics ;-)

When he got up, he  grabbed the broom and worked it like a wizard. Then he worked the swifer like mad and the chore was done.

It woke him up better than coffee ;-)

We'll keep you posted.

- Mr. Bun
