1. Someone is ready for their close-up!
2. DOUGAL EARS!!! Love it. He's like "Wait...I'm picking something up...it's...more bunnies."
3. How can I start one of these in my area??

Hoppy Hour makes me happy. Dougal is so precious! Bill and Sharon are so blessed to be disapproved by him every day. I love all the different kinds of bunnies there are! In the second vid, did you see that long flat pancake bun getting petted? He was so flat, he looked like a carpet! PLEASE keep Hoppy Hour a regular segment on DR.
Who else wants to sqeeze the stuffing out of Dougal til his eyes pop out??

Don't you hate when rabbits keep hopping up to you, pestering you to put them on your blog?! ;-)

Also, too, as Katie wrote: "DOUGAL EARS!!!" Love that rabbit.

Well, RG, you got your sunshine on DR and at home. Congrats and thank you from the rest of us. I don't know that we would still be "admiring" Seren, if it weren't for the deep desperation of your comment/plea, but I don't really go in for coincidence as the explanation for much. However, for all you chaos theorists, and just to be on the safe side, I would also like to thank that butterfly in Japan.

I WANT TO GO TO HOPPY HOUR!

SixBunnies said...

I WANT A DOUGAL!

Rabbits' Guy said...

Yay! Dougal on Monday! It WAS the butterfly!

(I wonder what they feed Dougal? He is a big guy and still has some ways to go.)

I keep watching! I saw a bunny get a time out. I would be banned from Hoppy Hour because I seriously would try to take home as many buns as I couls smuggle out of there. I WANT TO EAT THEM ALL UP!

St. Cinnamon has been canonized by the angels themselves. She did decline the wings and halo, as God has already made bunnies perfect in all their forms, and no celestial decoration is necessary. She sits at the Right Hand of God, or the Left Hand, or at his feet or even on His lap, because is officially The Disapprover and her lofty place in the hierarchy of heavenly beings has allowed her such privelages. You can often see her relaxing upon the lap of the Mother of God, having her ears and nose scratched, or couceling with the great seven archangels. She even gave The Angel of Death his share of disapproval for staying within Egypt when clearly the world in general could have used a good cleansing. I believe that we will see Her Holiness, St. Cinnamon in Loaf Form beside The Judge on the Dread Day of Judgement in case the Good Merciful Lord is being TOO merfiful.
And of course, when Gabriel the Archangel sounds the horn on the day of Resurrection, she will be there to meet Bill and Sharon and binky around their feet, never to be parted from them again.

St. Cinnamon disapproves of all my spelling errors!
World without end amen

SixBunnies said...

brandi b, good picture!

SixBunnies said...

Dougal is hilarious! I'm surprised those ears don't pull him over!

SixBunnies said...

I would be banned from Hoppy Hour too... I would be freeing the bunz in time out and getting into the bunz' play space...

Fleetie said...

Great to watch!

Dougal seems a little shy of other rabbits, still. Not surprising, because I expect hasn't seen many rabbits since he was a baby bunny at the rescue he came from.

He'll probably gain confidence gradually!

And the other buns might regard him in awe, with those fantastic ears! And if they hear that he lives in the same house where Queen Cinnamon used to live.... He will gain great stature among rabbits!

Dougal, you're a super bunny!

Fleetie said...

Yes, what a great vision, Brandi B!

If anybun deserves to be a saint, it is Queen Cinnamon.

I believe that even now, little schoolbunnies are taught about a legendary cinnamon-coloured rabbit, who taught all bunnies across the world how to disapprove of their hoomins, and thereby make the hoomins treat rabbits with the respect they deserve!

This Great Message will be passed from rabbit generation to rabbit generation, and, we hope, from hoomin generation to hoomin generation, too.

Sahar said...

I can't get over Dougal's ears!

TechNeilogy said...

Dougal looks like such a big, shy goofball it just breaks your heart and makes you want to hug him.

Victoriajoy said...

I would purchases this on a DVD. Just tape one hour of bunnies being bunnies and hopping, sniffing, running. I think it would be terrific. I could put it on after a hard day to just feel better.

SixBunnies said...

I would buy it, too! And, I would pay to subscribe to the live webcam! Proceeds to the rabbit rescues! Not sure how big the audience is for that ... Bunny people are a bit eccentric ...

I want to do this in Los Angeles! I would so bring my furballs, er, masters, to watch them just be floppy bunz for an hour.

SixBunnies - The LA Rabbit Foundation just started a live-cam feed of two buns in foster care. If it goes well, why not have Hoppy Hour on live feed too? Prudence & Nigel Live Cam Feed

brandi b said...

bahhh, Prudence and Nigel must be asleep.

6Rabbits said...

The EARS... *sigh* I love Dougal!

Furbeast said...

Take a look at this Hoppy Hour clip -- the featured star is a gorgeous Angora, but do not miss the little grey lionhead on the left about 15 seconds in.

Valsainte said...

I could watch Hoppy Hour for days on end! And probably will. And what a grand bun Dougal is. Those ears are so big they look like they might fall off.

Am I the only one who was singing "That was Billllllllly, Lonnnnnnnnesome Billlly..." at 0:26 in the bottom video? ;-)

West Coast Kenny said...

I hope the other buns and bun parents don't make too big a fuss to have an international celebrity in their midst.

Does he have to fend of the hoparazzi?

janet2buns said...

I think Dougal wonders why his hoomin isn't following him out onto the mat. He looks a little puzzled.

There's a flat black bunny on the right of the lower screen who is soaking up the pets. That is exactly my Phoebe's style! She'll flatten out and accept pats for ages! Drizzle says he doesn't have time for such nonsense, and besides, hoomins' hands tend to be smelly. Ick!

AECDesigns said...

Hoppy Hour is AWESOME!!!
Whoever thought of it is a genius!

Ness said...

Awww! I really wish we had something like this for my buns. They get tired of being cooped up in their area all the time.

Stacy Hurt said...

Yes, we've watched both vids and the vote is in. Dougal is the most awesomest bunn there. Not only does he win by his nose and darling fluffy tail, but also those miraculous, fantastic ears! He is the apex bunn. So say we all.

Danoontjepower said...

Dougal is superb!!! you gotta love those ears!!

there is also a bunny on there that keeps reminding me about lonesome billy (search on youtube, probably already posted here someday) love that black and white colors he has.

i wish we had hoppy hours in holland, i will have to search for those!

Thanks for sharing!!

Pepper said...

More Hoppy Hour! We want to see more Dougal with the Big Ear and BIG Feet. Dougal does seem a little shy - I don't think he knows what all those little things hopping around are.
