Animal Kingdom

Just a quick update on our animal status.

Last week Pepper, one of the bunnies, was missing when we came home from my cousin's house. Either Antonio (the gardener) had forgotten to block off the hole in the cage used for sweeping the cleaning water out, or he had put a wobbly block in front of it that allowed the bunnies to knock it over.

Daddy looked everywhere to no avail, so we surmised that Pepper either got out of the yard into someone's cooking pot or an owl got her. And we resigned ourselves to being a single-bunny household.

But then Grandpa looked outside the window and saw her trying to get back into her cage, all confused because the hole was now blocked off! So we still have two bunnies.

Later this week Ms. Cathrine helped me catch a little bird. Mommy was quite surprised when I brought it in to show her, since she is used to me bringing her grasshoppers, not birds. We put the bird into the cage with the bunnies for a little while. Here it is with Ginger bunny.

And Groban the dog thinks he's Daddy's favorite child. He insists on getting between us all the time and nudges me away whenever he can. Groban likes to hug Daddy by putting his paw on Daddy's shoulder. Here's a photo of Daddy with his two kids . . . Can't you see the resemblances?!

A smart and pretty bunny. Love the picture of Hubs and his two 'kids.' Our dogs can be a little possessive and jealous sometimes too.
