Oh, just thinking about getting an axe 
and... Relaxing! I mean, I'm relaxing

Thanks, Abby & Jeffrey!


Hey all, due to a cut and paste error, we initially got the name of the rabbit wrong in the post. Apologies to Abby, Jeffrey, and of course Bunnimus.

Minnesota Companion Rabbit Society

Hey all, Bill here. The Minnesota Companion Rabbit Society, one of the groups that sponsors the Hoppy Hour events that you've come to know and love, could use some financial help.

So! If you could go to their website, look at the left-hand sidebar, and give them a one-time, or better yet, a monthly donation, it'd be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Buffy


The difference between your face
and a hangover is 
that with the
hangover I had fun the night before.

Thanks, Sadie!

You are sentenced to be executed.
Then revived.

Well, at least it didn't say "Hoppy Easter."

Thanks, Rachel!

Oh, and if you read this Buzzfeed article on Animals Who Are Extremely Disappointed in You, you may find #15 familiar.

Darius

Reader Patricia sent us this link to a story about Darius, a "Continental Giant" rabbit who's 4'4" long and weighs 49 pounds. 




Quoth the Daily Mail:

Meet the world's biggest Easter bunny, Darius the enormous Continental Giant, who weighs a whopping three-and-a-half stone and is 4ft 4in.
Darius, aged three, munches through an incredible 12 carrots a day to keep up his strength and fuel his amazing growth spurt.
He already held the title of world's biggest rabbit but has now smashed his own record after vets measured him a month ago and realised he had had grown another inch.

That's a big rabbit.

Dougal

Jowly McJowelersons here is peeved he didn't get a name-check in yesterday's MSNBC story about Disapproving Rabbits and other famous bunnies of the Internet.

Still, pretty awesome that after all these years, DR is still getting mentions.

One minute of Hoppy Hour




"Hoppy Hour" is a rabbit socialization event organized by the MN Companion Rabbit Society. This is a video from a recent one held in Golden Valley, MN.

Dougal makes an appearance about 30 seconds in.

Update: Since there's been some questions in the comments, I will explain the rules of Hoppy Hour.

The rabbits must be spayed/neutered and free of diseases. Owners must sit on the edge of the mat, and children must remain seated. The people you see walking amongst the rabbits are the Bouncers, who clean up messes and give rabbits a time out (flipping them and returning them to their owner) if the rabbit fights or tries any shenanigans with another rabbit.

If a rabbit spends too much time hiding in a box (as Dougal did his first time), the bouncer removes the box to encourage them to socialize.

You're not allowed to pick up any rabbit but your own, obviously, but if a rabbit hops over to you, you're allowed to pet it. There's a $3/rabbit fee, but people without bunnies can attend for free.
