OMG!!! I saw at least two Jersey Woolies, one angora, and two lionheads THAT MUST BE MINE!!!!! MINE!! Is it me, or do the bunnies seem very friendly and happy this Hoppy Hour? The bunnies were just loving on each other and trying to get their share of adoration and nose rubs from the lowly hoomins.
Those little boys were so cute, they look like Peanuts characters.

"...And God said 'Let there be EARS' and the Hares and Rabbits grew large, bouncy ears, and the Lord saw that it was good. But when the Angels came to the Pikas, they said to the Lord 'O Almighty Lover of Lagomorphs, we have not enough supersized ears for the little Pikas and some of them will goeth without ears' And the Lord God, Lover of Lagomorphs, whom the Lagomorphs call Frith, said to the Angels 'Be not troubled. For the Pikas are special among Lagomorphs and they shall marked with a special kind of ear, which shall be a sign to all that Lagomorphs shall not be judged by the size or shape of their ears, but by Divine Command shall they be superior to all creatures, yea, even though they shall be hunted for food, so shall they be Disapproving of all mankind' And the Angels did as the Lord commanded and all the Lagormorphs had ears of all shapes, sizes, floppability and snorgability. And the Lord saw it was good, and was well pleased..."

From the Deuterocanonical Book of the Old Testament-Genesis of the Lagomorph Overlords.
Controversial, but I got a copy.
That's how Dougal got that lop ear.

What is the appeal of the tire toy? Nobody actually jumped through it, but all seemed to want to lounge around it. Maybe you people who actually live with rabbits can explain this to me!

I to beep the white nose on the black bunny. It could be my final act on earth...

brandi b: I believe we will all be surprised some day, when our days on Earth (as we know it) are over ... I believe bunnies will have a special place in the afterlife! And, it will all make sense to us hoomins ... after that day ...

SixBunnies said...

And, Hoppy Hour is the answer to everything that needs an answer ... and it would end all world strife ... if only we could broadcast it throughout the entire world at once ... peace would break out...

Must...Have...Black...Flemmieeeeee!!

I just lovelove that little ashy coloured guy...and the little muttonchop one....and the one with the megafloofs.....aaaaahhhhh!!

brandi b, you could probably find out the schedule of Hoppy Hour and lie in wait in the parking lot, ready to bun-nap those bunsters.

Fleetie said...

Really adorable little twitchy-nosed furry Disapprovers!

So many hoomins to Disapprove Of - which onbes to Disapprove Of first?!

And there were a few fantastic *SPROING!*s in there!

And Dougal is a star, as always! I believe I saw him turning around and giving The Bunny Butt at one point!

Fleetie said...

Fantastic choice of passage from The Bunble, Brandi!

janet2buns said...

I especially loved the *SPROING* at 2:24.

Pepper said...

Ooooo I love Happy Hour - thank you Disapproving Rabbit slaves for this recent little snippit of life at the hour of happiness. I also noticed the attraction of the tire toy hoop thing, that was certainly where all of the cool bunnies were hanging out. And that big black rabbit who just wanted some love were ever he could get it - what a cutie. I dream of Happy Hour - I dream I am running through just scooping up cute bunnies as I go. Ahhhh

Rabbits' Guy said...

Poor Sally Neary. Thinks people who actually live with rabbits actually know anything significant about them ... No - they have an as yet undiscovered logic.

Muser said...

Brandi, I would go to church more often if that type of sermon was read out!

janet2buns said...

brandi, do you have any other quotations from the Bunble? Perhaps from GeneBun or RevelBuntions?

brandi b said...

RevelBuntions is cryptic and full of symbolism that is hard to interpret. Theolagothists agree on one thing-the end is nigh and there are not enough treats in the cosmos to succor the Disapproving Rabbits of Judgement Day. If the unbeliever (non-rabbit person) will be judged harshly, how much more so the believer (us!) who knows better and still did not cowtow enough to the Superior Bunns. Our accountability is going to be our undoing.
Oh, and those people that hurt rabbits just for fun, Oh, I cannot wait for their judgement. I may fry in Bunny Hell, but before I go, I wanna see those sumbitches beg for mercy and then I am gonna drag em down with me.
For them, NO Quarter, NO Mercy!!!!

I'm curious how Hoppy Hour actually works...

I have four rabbits. They're bonded in pairs. Three used to love each other, but then I added another and suddenly they all hated each other, and now I have two separate pairs. I have tried the bath tub bonding thing with them and for whatever reason, my one Rex is terrified of L.C. (Lord Chubbington) so much that he freaks out and loses fur. I don't know why. Chubs is so friendly.

I wish we had Hoppy Hour around my neck of the woods. I'd make them all go and make new friends.

brandi b said...

For those who do not believe that the Bunble is infallible, I understand your doubts. This is not commonly discussed outside the Secret Vaults of the Vatican (you know, the Vatican is always with the Secret Squirrel Society of Crytobibliographicos - yes, that IS a word, I am a Scrabble CHAMPION, do not question my vocabulary skills!!!)
These sacred texts were discovered in the catacombs beneath Constantinople...er...em...Istanbul, after Constantinople got the Works, which was nobody's business but the Turks...
Also, the belief is that there were seven ecumenical councils, some say eight, but the truth is that the very first council, held in what is now the United Kingdom, at the place now known as Watership Down, dealt with the issue of the Superiority of Lagomorphs, and all there present held and declared and signed that they held Lagomorphs to be truly Superior and Disapproving, and ANATHEMA to all heretics that preached or believed otherwise.

Rabbits' Guy said...

Some of us just believe. It is a lot easier that way.

Credilya said...

Maybe my Button was an odd duck. She would be corralling all the rabbits and subjugating them as her minions. This peace, love, and tire swing would not be in the cards.

Dougal is just gorgeous! And the dark Flemish, I'd have stuffed him in my shirt and taken him home.

Karen said...

I soooo love Hoppy Hr don't understand how they all get along because mine never would. I love that cute lionhead near the end so fluffy and precious. Almost rivals Zoey & Chico over at House of rabbits

Jo said...

I love Hoppy Hour - Just lowers the blood pressure and makes all my cares melt away. Nothing more fun than watching a mess of buns hopping and mingling. That lettuce leaf never stood a chance. I love every single post of Dougal's socializing.

And Brandi - awesome post. Lovin it!

... oh what a fantastic treat!

I too don't fully understand the magic of how all the buns get along so peacefully. My buns seem pretty homicidal (or bunnicidal?) whenever I bun sit. Is it possible that these buns have enough space and are all in neutral terrority so they do not want to kill?
I so wish there was something like this in New York City. I would definitely bring my Dutchies and let the bunnytude flow.
