Dougal and friends

We took Dougal to the local Hoppy Hour, which was a much smaller, intimate affair. At one point the rabbits got very close together in a litter box. Maximum bunny capacity!

Bonus! Artist Amanda Suchorski was sketching last night, and just sent us a scan! You may recognize that dapper, cock-eared fellow on the right.

I can only imagine that someone put them all in that litter box. Surely they didn't CHOOSE to all go to the bathroom at once.

That's just too good :-) I can just feel the fuzz of impending world domination. Better gather up some treats to welcome our new overlords.

Paula said...

Dougal and his adorabuhls cuddle mates demonstrate a lagomorphic mind meld. I'm sure treats were involved. Carrotinis were also surely involved.

Dougal you handsome bun,I see you and your pals are plotting some plan for world domination

the bottom left sketch seems to disapprove of how it was portrayed in the above front view sketch.

Great stuff! Maybe that is a re-enactment of the first, failed (fortunately) version of Noah's Ark. Or maybe the flood story as told by bunnies.

This DR post made my day!
Dougal is so beautiful. You are lucky to be able to snorgle that baby every day. He is a RAbbits rabbit.

Well, RG, your bunns' behaviour has sort of been leaning in the nautical directions. Are these just viral Bunn Beer pranks on the occasion of the Americas Cup OR do the bunns know something we don't know. Hmmm, yes, the bunns know everything and we know nothing...hmmm, yes, rhetorical question. Ijon, it is going to be better when they come, isn't it?

LOL, Dougal and Company, a la Bugs Bunny in a lifeboat on the ocean "Someone's rockin' my dream boat, someone's invadin' my dreams, we were sailin' along, peaceful and calm, suddenly somethin' whent wrong...."
Then the gorilla (symbolic of us useless apes)picks him up and swings across the jungle...

It is clear that Dougal is gaining quite a following in the BunWorld. All those little bunnies want to be near him!

Also, he has now been inducted into a fine tradition - he has been drawn by a hoomin admirer! If you remember, Queen Cinnamon was also painted by a hoomin admirer! Actually, at least twice; once on canvas in paint, and then digitally by Tom.

It is fitting that Dougal be so celebrated, even though he is still a very young bun, who still has much Disapproving to do!

You go, Dougal!

And ANOTHER Cinnamon painting!

Fleetie said...

Sorry, I got the 1st and 3rd links the wrong way round. The 3rd link was the painting I originally meant.

FAIL!

(Stoopid hoomin!)

anonymous said...

Fleetie, don't you think Dougal should be able to party with some expectation of privacy. I mean why weren't all those bunny and hoomin camera phones collected? Thanks for the links.

anonymous said...

Fleetie, the links make me miss Queen Cinnie even more. Paintings can somehow catch a special something that a photograph does not (even when the auto focus is on). I hope everyone remembers that hilarious posting. I don't know how to do links or anything very fancy. Thanks again.

Four bunnies make up one Dougal! Teehee!!! I love it!

brandi b said...

My gosh, Dougal is HUGE next to those other bunnies. He HAS to have some kind of "giant" breed in him.
Good to know how many bunnies will fit in one litter box, though, for transportation purposes...I mean, for litter buying purposes.

All those bunnies in one box-there is a joke in there someplace...How many rabbits does it take to fill a potty box?
How Many??
(insert funny punchline)

Rub a dub dub, four buns in a tub!

Jade said...

*SQUEE* A pile of bunnehs! LOVE!

Ijon Tichy the Nth said...

Fantastic bonus!Bns and Cinnamon in particular turned out to be inspiring beyond belief.

brandi b said...

I keep saying it...we need some Dougal Merchandise. He is a handsome rabbit.

anonymous said...

Yeah, BB, sure you do, but they are not going to sell him and his buds to you even if you pack them up. You will be stopped at the check out stand. Still, nice job of arranging everybunn.

When I was little, my ears stuck out like car doors from the side of my head. I was teased mercilessly by a cruel alcoholic uncle and cousins he egged on.

After enduring this for many years, in my early teens I had cosmetic surgery that pinned them to the side of my head like normal people, (and rounded out the Mr. Spock points).

If only I had a role model like Dougal, I think I would not have been so traumatized.

I hope he provides comfort to some other little boy or girl.
