Bunny Sunday

I have been trying all afternoon to load another video of the bunnies, but it's just not happening today.  I love the internet, but my internet connection is another story somedays...

I had some good laughs over the comments to last week's Bunny Sunday pic (appropriately dubbed by one person as "Bunny Sled Team") .  There was a question about how I get them to line up by that.  I wish I could say I trained them to do it, but not so.  There is a hierarchy that these bunnies follow and this little sled team ritual is something they do all on their own.  First, Sandie lies down, then Digger, Ginger, Bully and Turbo.  9 times out of 10 it is in that order. 
And no one dares lie down until Sandie does first.  If they do, they get nipped in the butt and moved from the spot until the appropriate order is established.  So, there you have it - bunny clan dynamics 101.

You're Bunny Sundays just squeeze my heart and I want to smooch and cuddle each one of them (if they would allow it). I'm an animal person...Maltese dogs for me... but my sister has a bunny named Mocha who is part of our extended "family." LOVE these pictures and I love your southwestern jewelry. I'm so partial to the American Southwest having lived in Texas for 9 years. I'm now in Hong Kong...big adjustment!

That is so cute! I love how they line up like that. Interesting.

I didn't know that buns had a pecking order, but it makes sense - cause most critters do!

Ahhhh they're like a gang!

So Sandie is the boss huh? We need her to visit Heartland and tell some of our bunnies to "line up" "behave yourselves"

I've never had more than one bunny at a time, so those are really interesting dynamics for me. They look so darned cute. And, orderly. *smile*
