To me, she actually looks kind of miffed that anyone doubted her landing abilities for a second.

I just think it's lovely that they sprayed the runway with that foam fire-repellant stuff in case her cuteness caused the entire place to burst into flame upon touchdown.

Needless to say...it was a very soft landing.

This bunny bears close resemblance to the Thursday bunny:

If you look at it another way, she seems to be frowning in fierce concentration as she skims over the clouds.

Poofy bunny! Looks like it might be lighter than air even without the flappy ears!

Oh my - I just love how Lops always looked so annoyed with the rest of us, like we don't get it or something.

Will you be flying coach, first class, or adorable today?

How about "Browff" for the head flooffs?

Did I really just say that?

Lauri
 |  Jun 24, 2006 at 12:38 PM

I want to reach out and pet her so badly...

There is a great demand for "free bunny"-cards, what with all these people wanting a bunny right now, and dang the consequenses...

Nickole
 |  Jun 24, 2006 at 12:54 PM

Thank gods, this one isn't particularly cute!

Is it a bunnicopter...?

Villeline
 |  Jun 24, 2006 at 12:59 PM

Maybe she's a Hare-ier jump jet? With vertical takeoff and landing.

Laurie C
 |  Jun 24, 2006 at 01:05 PM

ha! i like the airplane effect, it's cute ^_^

Steff

So, cats are buses, bunnies are airplanes... what are dogs?

On closer inspection (and after in-depth consultation with MY honey bunny), we think this bun is concentrating VERY intently on levitating from the launch pad, 'copter ears at the ready...

sigh...I'm going to miss BunWeek. thanks, Meg :)

Q
 |  Jun 24, 2006 at 02:48 PM

OKAY, SERIOUS QUESTION, RABBIT-LOVERS: I agree they're cute-looking as all get-out, but I'd like to know from all y'all (E. Collison, etc.) if they're smart, affectionate, have personality, etc.

I'm not being sarcastic, I really want to know if a bunny and I would be a good match before I commit to a bun of my very own. I've lived in the country and greatly enjoyed watching the buns in the wild (tho' cursing their wily ways of getting into my garden); I even crumpled a fender swerving to avoid hitting one who dashed in front of my car. I know that taking a pet into one's life is serious, and I just don't yet know enough about the SOUL of a bunneh.

P.S. FYI, while I consider myself primarily a dog person, I've loved an exceptional cat or two in my day... if that's any help.

Lemme know what you think, if you have a mo'.

Thanx!

Droopy muzzlepuffs!! I am officially toast from cuteness now.

Brak_Silverbone
 |  Jun 24, 2006 at 03:41 PM

J. Bo, they have personality to spare, and are highly intelligent and michievous, but odds are you won't see that right off. Being prey animals, they have to grow to trust you before they'll show the wackier (etc.) sides of their personalities.

If you have patience, are willing to spend time on the floor just *being with* the bun, et. al. - you'll probably be rewarded. if not, then not.

My suggestion: try to hook up with a rabbit rescue organization. They'll help you get hooked up with the "right" rabbit.

And try out http://www.rabbit.org for starters (House Rabbit Society site). There are a lot of great links there. I'm also partial to www.hopperhome.com and this site (http://www.paperglyphs.com/rabbits/rabbittalk.html ) - do check the final sections to find out how the author got to know his rabbits, though. It's illuminating.

Also get a copy of The House Rabbit Handbook if you're serious about getting a bun (Amazon.com sells it).

E. Collison
 |  Jun 24, 2006 at 04:02 PM

Ah, E. C., you're a peach! JUST the guidance I needed.

xoxo
jb

P.S. Ooh, I forgot-- are they affectionate, or do they merely tolerate the cuddling their cuteness demands?

J. Bo
 |  Jun 24, 2006 at 04:06 PM

J. Bo, you might also want to drop in on the discussion (etc.) at the bunny Lovers Unite pool on Flickr:

http://www.flickr.com/groups/bunnyloversunite/

As for affection: rabbits are like rabbits, not dogs or cats. They can and will show a lot of affection once they get to trust you - though some are never terribly touchy-feely. (AFAIK; I'm a new bunny person.) they're highly social animals, but in some cases, never really do trust humans (depends a lot on what they've been through). Bonding will take time and patience on your part.

But, like I said, check the sites I listed - the folks there really *know* rabbits.

E. Collison
 |  Jun 24, 2006 at 04:07 PM

As for cuddling like dogs and cats, nope - they cuddle on their own terms, which are quite different. But many love to snuggle (generally *not* on your lap!), give kisses (either nose to nose touching or else licking), etc.

if you go into this wanting to understand them on their own terms, you'll probably be a great rabbit person.

E. Collison
 |  Jun 24, 2006 at 04:10 PM

E.C., the focus of your comments alone (understanding the critters on THEIR terms, not trying to conform them to OURS, etc.) tells me your advice is wise.

SHEESH, there's a lot more to bun life than I thought! Think I might visit a few willing buns/guardians to see if there's a "chemistry" there.

THANKS AGAIN, SO MUCH!

J. Bo
 |  Jun 24, 2006 at 04:16 PM

You're most welcome - I spent a *lot* of time reading, investigating and talking to people (also bunny-proofing!) before I got mine. And I *really* lucked out.

One thing good rabbit people will tell you: a rabbit's shelter personality is not the same as their "I have a great place to live now" personality. Expect changes as the rabbit gets to feeling increasingly secure and comfortable in his/her new home.

And make sure the bun is either spayed or neutered. You'll be happier with that, and so will they!

E. Collison
 |  Jun 24, 2006 at 04:26 PM

EC, I don't recall you giving us a link to a photo of your new bun since you've had him (her?). Do you have one?

Laurie C
 |  Jun 24, 2006 at 04:44 PM

Laurie C (and everyone else), all will be revealed in due course... And yes, I do have a bun!
