Happy first birthday Heidi

 
Heidi landed on all four paws -when she was homed by the Pearce family, a very lucky bunny. Seen below celebrating her first birthday with a special bunny cake made just for her.
It just goes to show in the right homes Netherland Dwarfs make lovely pets and companions. Below is the email I received from her owners.

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY WEEZY”

Makes a nice change to get a nice email from customers.

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY WEEZY"
Avery loved and spoilt Lion Lop.

Hi Dee

Hope you are all well.

Just emailing to say hello as Weezy turned one the other day and we wanted to thank you for bringing himweezy_1 into the world for us. He's made our house 100% happier and he is a joy (a terror sometimes but a total joy!) I've attached some pictures so you guys can see how he's doing. He had a mini pineapple as a birthday cake (NO, we didn't let him eat the whole thing!! haha) as it is his favourite treat. He also loves basil, dill and kale.

He has been enjoying the garden and likes to go outside in theevening when it is cooler, sometimes he races around on his lead, it's great exercise for Luke and I.

He also really likes to play with balls and you can spend ages with him knocking a ball around, almost like a dog.

All best
Ava, Luke and Weezy

Lionhead Bonded pair find new home..

After being here for several months waiting for that right forever home- I was beginning to think that they would become permanent residents with several people wanting to home one or the other, I stuck to my guns as these were a very happily married couple and need a forever home together. They were finally in luck in the form of a Yorkshire "Tooth fairy"

Karen and her husband Carl had fallen in love with them, one spot of trouble was the 250 mile -9 hour round trip for them to be collected. A quick bit of thinking and a visiting trip to relatives in Grantham planned- we met up half way.

With the biggest indoor cage delivered a couple of days before-every thing was set. Car loaded, overnight stuff packed,dogs loaded, bunnies comfortable in their carrier, and we just had to take their wooden house that the two bunnies adored-although this was never in the upright position- but more like a boat, which both bunnies enjoyed sitting in.

Thank you Karen and Carl and I hope they give you many years of happiness.

UPDATE FROM EMILY FUDGE’S MUMMY:
I have now made Fudge’s Christmas hats. I have decided to make 3 as I was unsure of what one to make. The one is a reindeer one. It goes quite well with the colour of his fur but it is hard to balance it on him. The next one is an elf one which looks quite nice on him. The last one is my favourite out of the 3 Christmas ones an is his Santa-Paws one. It has cotton wool round the bottom and at the top. Luckily he hasn’t nibbled it yet.
We started jumping last night. We put the jump in the room to starts with and he enjoyed jumping over the pole. Especially when there were treats involved!

Love is in the Air………..

What to do when you lose one of a bonded pair

When Alfie lost his sister companion suddenly at the age of three- he was a very un-happy bunny. Maureen his mummy contact me and luckily we had a 5 month old Doe looking for a home. We got her neutered and 10 days later the “Taylor” family took her home to slowly bond with their sad Alfie.taylor_bunnies

“Love was in the Air”

Great news from  Maureen copied below:

I know that you are very busy but just to let you know about the new little chocolate doe we got from you for a girlfriend for Alfie . They are very happy with each other. They have bonded very well. We are grateful for your advice and guidance with the bonding process. They are totally in love!!! Hope you got pic I sent last night. Thanks again Maureen Taylor Basingstoke

Christmas Bunnies

I received the following email from Beth- who homed a Bonded pair of Bunnies from us a few weeks ago, Toffee a neutered Buck with his very cheeky sister Blue. Bunnies left us at 4 months old, we had already started their training and you can see the girls are really enjoying having bunnies they can handle and cuddle. I’m not sure what the bunnies think of the hats!!!!

Dear dee

Please see photo of girls with blue and toffee showing off their Xmas hats. We are loving BETH_BUNNIES_3BETH_BUNNIES_2them both and can’t believe we have only had them a couple of weeks

King Fudge & his hats.

More news from our hat wearing “super Bunny”

The first picture is his whole hat fudge_crowns1collection so far. The first one is the birthday one. Second is the crown as he seems to think he is King Fudge. The third and fourth ones are both wizard hats for Halloween. The fifth one is a candle for Diwali. It was the hardest to make but isn’t quite as good as the other ones. fudge_crowns2The sixth one is a firework one and the seventh is a remembrance day one with a poppy on it. I’m planning to add a Christmas one soon and a new year and Easter one nearer the time. The second picture is one of him wearing the wizard hat. The last picture is one of him looking very spoilt wearing his crown on his cushion which looks like a throne!

I can’t wait to see his Christmas hat…………….

Happy Birthday “Fudge”

I got a lovely email this evening-so thought I would share it with everyone.

“Happy Birthday” Fudge- I hope you have many many more birthdays to follow- not sure how many hats -one bunny can cope with. :)

Hi Dee,

Last November I got my rabbit Fudge from you for my 13th birthday. He is a chocolate otter mini lop that I named Fudge. As it was exactly one year ago today since I got him, I have decided to email you to let you know how he is getting on. I have also attached 3 of my favourite pictures of him. One is of him as a baby, one on his first birthday and one from last night.

He settled into his new home quite well. It wasn’t long until he started coming up to thefudge_1 front of the cage for attention rather than hiding when we opened the cage door. The first picture is one of him only a couple of weeks after he came home. He was playing with his wooden ball when he threw it in his food bowl! I love this picture and it is the background on my phone. It wasn’t much longer until we found out his true personality. Instead of being a calm laid-back bunny, he turned into an energetic little rascal! He is the perfect pet and soon became very good at getting food from us. He makes me feel very guilty about leaving for school in the morning as he just sits there and stares at the door of his cage! He litter trained very well and is very good at doing a few basic tricks. He can stand up on his back legs with just a hand movement (or sometimes a foot movement) above his head. With a treat, he can sometimes walk up to 10 steps on his back legs.

Soon after Christmas, he really began to enjoy having a cuddle in his lap basket. He now has over an hour every evening and he would quite happily spend longer in there. He enjoys running around and it didn’t take him long to work out how to jump on to the furniture. However, his favourite place is my bed. He loves having a flop and snuggling up under the duvet with me. It didn’t seem very long at all until it was his first birthday. For the occasion, I made him a fudge_2paper hat to wear with the words “Happy Birthday” written on it. The second picture is him on his birthday wearing the hat on his own cushion on the furniture. The birthday hat was the start of his paper hat collection which currently consists of 7 hats and is still growing.  Over the last couple of months, he has seemed to become more affectionate. He is licking us more and he binkies almost every night now.

The last picture is the most recent one of him taken last night when he has a flop at cuddle time. He flops every night and loves hopping on to my chest for a cuddle. He loves the fudge_3whole family but he prefers having his cuddle with me. Soon, we are going to start jumping training as I think he will enjoy it. He is used to wearing his lead and harness and we have bought the Classic-Hop-Blue Vita Sport obstacle from you. Have you got any tips on how to start? Thank you for such a lovely bunny-and I’m sure Fudge would like to say thank you as well for re-homing him to us.

Your very welcome Emily- I just wished every bunny ended up in such a lovely home.
