How rude of Maple's hoomins to take pictures while she's all nakie. Does SHE take picture of THEM when THEY're nakie? Much less post it on the internet for everybun to see?

Maple, I believe some random piddling is in order... favorite shoes, carpet, bed pillow... The hoomins they must be punished!

Buns are not sheep, and should not be treated as such!

Poor Maple bunny.

Stacy Hurt said...

That is quite the cuteness; Now make sure the hoomins take all that fur & make a friend for you! It's only fair.

HA! word verif. is sperse

Maple probably doesn't see the funny side of this but that's got to be the best laugh I've had all day.

Don't worry Maple - the only difference between a good haircut and a bad one is about three weeks :).

I think a DR reader once said "Nobunny likes a Mom haircut." Maple agrees wholeheartedly!

Maple looks at her clipped fur and wonders if there's enough to knit a sweater to cover her nakedness.

Rebecca said...

ummm..what do you do with the shorn hair? Are you a spinner?

Claire the Shepherdess said...

Yes, I am a spinner, and I blend it with my sheep's wool for spinning purposes. It really does make a lovely yarn. We have been having temperatures in the 30s (C) or 90s (F) and the buns are clearly not comfortable in those temps, so this time of year I give them a full clip. Despite her bad haircut, she was instantly more active and hoppy after the cut, rather than just laying out like a bunny rug. She even did binkies in the grass! That's a sign of a happier bun!

Fleetie said...

...So Maple gets the profits from the clothes spun from her lovely fur...


...RIGHT?!

Sanguinar said...

Maple:"Put. It. BACK!!!!"

Claire the Shepherdess said...

But of course she does Fleetie! She gets rabbit treats all the time, and fresh timothy hay in winter when there is no fresh grass here, and bits of banana...all of which are purchased. :-)
