Rufus Conquers the Open Staircase, the Bunnies go to the Vet Together, Bonding Bunnies Sessions and Looking at Rescue Pups at the Lazy Vegan!
It has been quite the week of accomplishments here at the Lazy Vegan! Rufus suddenly conquered the open staircase - which is huge - now he can go up and down to the "bro-cave" whenever he feels like it! We used to have to carry him up and down. He's quite pleased with himself and I am a bit nervous about it (since the staircase is "open") - but he's a very cautious bunny and it is awfully cute to see him suddenly decide to go up...and down. He had actually accomplished this last week, but we thought it might be a fluke - but it's here to stay! I told the foreman that we need to make sure to still pick him up once a day just for practice so he doesn't forget what that's all about!
And in other exciting news, I took both bunnies to the vet at the same time for their annual exam (thinking it might be a good bonding experience). I belted their two travel carriers into the backseat of my Beetle and off we went to see Dr. Pfann in Petaluma. Hard to say if it had any effect regarding bonding - because pretty much as soon as we returned home, Rufus went upstairs and put himself to bed! It was all a bit much for him.
The foreman and I - still deeply grieving our beloved Bravo - went to check out Green Dog Rescue and held (GASP) two puppies. So adorable. One I espeically liked - a mellow poodle-mix named "Peta". The next day we decided to go get her, but discovered she had already been adopted just an hour before. It's o.k. - it was a bit too soon, anyway, although now I fear if we wait too long it may not happen at all - we will just have to wait and see. I really miss having a dog around but there's no doubt it is a bit complicated with the bunnies.
Lastly, we are back at our style of bunny bonding - and so far it is going pretty darn good - Miz Wasabi still chases Rufus but nothing like she used to and they're even sharing salad time together! Fingers crossed if we keep at it that they will eventually bond. Bunnies are complex. And bonding bunnies is not a joke!
Happy Birthday this past week to Snap!!!
Another pup held by the foreman. It is amazing we left there empty-handed!
