Daisy and Gretel's big day out

 This one is Daisy - he had been running about the yard and decided to take a break, much to the relief of my daughter who is attached to the other end of the leash. We have to keep them 'leashed' as there are too many escape hatches in our yard!

Then Gretel had his turn, we can't let them out together as Daisy is a bit of a bully, and he has already ripped his brothers nuts off at a huge financial cost to me and no doubt psychological cost to Gretel...

But they do like to visit each other from the safety of the other side!

I wonder what they are talking about?

Boy bunnies with girly names? Oh well, I guess they don't know the diff.

Hi Louciao - well, when we got them we were told they were sisters...I can't find the blog where I told a gruesome story about how we found out they were boys but part of the story is in this one...

I bet Daisy is saying "your nuts were rubbish" and Gretel is saying "eff you, pal, I know Glenn Close's phone number and first chance I get..."

(Previous version deleted cos of typo - in casxe you were wondering!)

Your bunny and my daughter share a name LOL.
Cute on the leashes.

louciao said...

Say no more! (I mean on this particular topic of sexing the bunnies)... er...if you know what I mean.

haha yes, it does sound funny you saying Daisy and then "he".

They are such cute bunnies. Gorgeous. They look very big.

Do you walk them in the street too or just in the garden?

Brother Tobias said...

I'm not going near Daisy, lead or no lead.

Funny Steve should mention Glenn Close as I was watching Fatal Attraction just last weekend! Scarey shiiiiiit.

Anyway, SUCH sweet bunnies - Daisy's bullying tendencies notwithstanding - I just want to reach into the photo and take 'em out and stroke 'em! (As I may have said before, I have a habit of repeating myself...)

Btw thanks for your email m'dear - will endeavour to reply shortly! Apologies for slow reply, have been off the radar (just for a change....) Hope all's fine and dandy at your (fluffy) end!

PS The black rabbit in "Watership Down" scared the hell out of me! And that scene where the sunset creates blood going across the fields...

The Sagittarian said...

Steve -haha, that made me laugh!

Villager - yes, it's been nice to have them out, even if only on a leash!

Misbehaving - the leashes are a trial really, they run about and we have to keep up with them...which makes them run about even more!

Louciao - squeamish eh?

rb - they are big, but we only walk them in the garden. We live next door to a park and too many people walk their dogs in the park!

BT - wise move I reckon! Would make more than one's nose twitch thats for sure.

OC - wonderful to see you about and out! We're all good, we have the last episode of DT's Doctor tonight - no phones will be answered no doors opened...

Well I suppose Gretel is trangender anyway now :-(

Still button-cute though.

What lovely photographs.

Oh, I didn't know rabbits could be bullies too!

The Sagittarian said...

Hi Jeanette - that took me by surprise too, they look so cute and fluffy (except at Easter when they're chocolatey)!
