Bernadette

See them loafing around.
Pledging their love to no one.
Disapproving with the dust bunnies.


Thanks, Diana!

And here we have Bernadette sporting the latest in Alpine Bun apparel from Giorgio Arbunni, the Portahutch.

Positively fetching!

As Bernadette's foster mom I can attest she was born to the role of Disapprover. She will be holding court at the The Rabbit Haven's adoption show at Pet Pal's in Santa Cruz tomorrow. Only the most dedicated groomers need apply to be her human companion/ worshiper. www.therabbithaven.org

Yeti's aren't as big as they used to be. Must have something to do with global warming.

Bernadette's foster mom: Bless you in your search for a suitable indentured servant for Bernadette. And may her scrumptiousness attract other indentured servants for the other bunnies in your care. *curtseys*

The ONLY way to wear a RABBIT FUR COAT!!!! You rock that coat Bernadette! Need pictures from your skiing trip! And, to Bernadette's foster mom, great job! Those fuzzies require so much attention. Her fur looks marvelous! If you can find her in there, please kiss her for me ... I'll pay your resulting medical bills!

Oh my - "The Song of Bernadette" from the movie "Tumbling Dust Bunnies" with Gene Autry and his stalwart sidekick "Bernadette the Beautiful Bunny" ... or some such thing.

Anyway - somebody recue that Bernadette bunn! Life will never be the same again! That is a Good thing.

Bernadette: Diva extraordinaire, floofy and fiesty. Amateur bunny-slaves need not apply.

@Jade: Today we are all amateurs.

Thank you @SixBunnies. My heart breaks every time I see clothing with rabbit fur. And Bernadette is only 300 miles away from me - Benjamin is urging me to gas up the car and go!

Bernadette's fur when recovered from the comb can be used to spin yarn and then knitted.

Bernadette was also featured in our local paper announcing the adoption show - I think adopters might actually fight over her.

Valsainte said...

Must. Smooch. Bernadette. Now. No price too high!

BTW, The Rabbit Haven Rules! It is right and fitting that a bun as gorgeous as Bernadette should hail from such a splendid organization.

Jan, I pick my bunnies up all the time and reassure them that nobody will ever take their fur from them and nobody will ever eat them. I also ask them to keep their fur to themselves ... but they don't! They share ... They put it all over the place! Hahaha! I cringe also when I see rabbit fur anywhere but on a bunny or on some bunny mom's clothing...

It's "Tumbling Tumble Bunns" by Bunns of the Pioneers

Have I mentioned before that I LOVE the wooly buns?? Bernie, baby I wish I could adopt you for my own. I LOVE grooming buns, but my Jersey Wooly HATES being groomed. I need a prissy little wooly bun like you to lavish all my bunsalon skills upon!!!

@Sixbunnies and @Jan - Unless you are seeing a rabbit pelt coat or something similar, angora is actually harvested off of the bunny without any harm to it. In fact, in some breeds of angora, you must take the fur off because it releases and when the bunny grooms himself, he will ingest the loose fiber and get very sick. The worst part of it for the bunny is to have to sit still for a little bit while he has the fiber plucked off of him. In fact, many bunnies do binkies just after having their coats plucked or sheared and are very happy about it. Of course, there are always exceptions to this human bunny relationship with angoras, but they are not killed to produce beautiful angora clothing - after all, if you killed the rabbit, there would be only one coat to spin, if the rabbit is well cared for, there are many years of good fiber to spin and knit and wear.

There is a big difference between rabbit pelt and angora wool, though, and it is a very distinctive difference. You can definately tell pelt from yarn. I see rabbit skins all the time at the ranch/farm/feed store I go to.

I pluck my jersey wooly several times a month. He sheds more or less depending on whatever weather or stress or some unknown force of nature is working on him. He molts twice a year and I can make a few new bunnies from the wool I get off him. No binkies, by the way, for me when I pluck or brush him. I am lucky not to get bit.

Bernadette. Diva Bernadette. Likes her carrotinis shaken, not stirred.
