Many of you know Tammy and Rubicat Pet Photography. Every year she donates to our annual Flatbread benefit night. It is one of our most popular prizes and she takes amazing pictures. Her web site is here:

Tails is having a contest for best pet photographer, and Tammy needs our votes. Let’s help her win! Instructions are below.

Go to Tails’ website –
Scroll down the RIGHT column until you see “2010 Reader’s Choice Awards”
This will take you to, a secure site. Make sure you vote for the BOSTON Magazine, then write in “rubicat design and photography” for Best Pet Photographer.

And while you are in there you can vote for your favorite vet. :-) I won’t say who to vote for there as there are several good rabbit vets that our group uses but it would be neat to have a bunny vet win!

Hello! My name’s Ally. I’m one of a pair but I’ll let my other half talk for herself. In case you hadn’t noticed…I’m a rabbit. With lovely soft fur. Unlike the other rabbits on this blog, I can type. My hobbies are eating (I’m very fond of that), being petted — although I’m a little shy about it at first — and having fun. I’m still exploring the having fun bit. I like digging and exploring paper bags and my favorite place in my new foster home is our cardboard box. It gives me endless hours of joy. I’m shy and curious in turns. If I feel scared, I like to dive behind Primrose. She’ll protect me — or go first. I’m a sweet little being with a comical gene. I’m small for a lop but not a dwarf or anything. I’ll post more pictures when I get the chance so you can see just how adorable I am. Primrose and I have been through a lot together. She’s my bestest friend.

Hi! I’m a shy adventurer looking for a forever home with my friend Ally. I’m soft and furry too. They named me Primrose though I’m not sure why. Maybe I reminded them of someone they knew called Primrose. I wonder if she has whiskers as fine as mine? I’m quite curious and I like stretching out on nice cool spots on the floor. I’m braver than Ally a lot of the time but I’m still cautious — as anybunny should be in a new place. Once I settle a bit though, I’ll make myself quite at home. I enjoy tunnels of any kind and I LOVE carrots. Do look us up if you’ve got a heart and a house for some cute furry friends.

We all have dreams and goals. For my foster bun Kirby, it is making it to the Summer Olympics. Kirby is a dedicated athlete and takes his training seriously. His goal of making it to the summer Olympics in 2012 becomes more of a reality each day. With approximately 700 days of training left, Kirby wastes no time perfecting his athletics!
Kirby’s physical talents cover an array of abilities. His favorite is the hopstacle course. He’s also very good at the long jump and tunnel traversing. He has impressive times in the sprint – you should see him run! Kirby is one fast bunny.
Like all serious athletes, Kirby understands the importance of a healthy diet. He stays hydrated with plenty of water, and nibbles on the finest hay and pellets to keep his body fueled. And like a good bunny, he eats his veggies! Rest is equally important; Kirby’s blue fleece bed is his favorite napping spot.
Part of my role as coach/foster mom is make sure he gets the exercise he needs everyday. He needs to be mentally, physically, and spiritually ready for the journey ahead! I cheer him on and pet his head to keep him motivated. And I work to build up his confidence as he tackles new challenges (and provide snack breaks of course).

Any adoptive family would have to be committed to maintaining his training schedule. This bun is going places! Yet the reward for committing to a future Olympian athlete is enormous; he will surely bring you lots of love, joy, and pride. Please consider adopting this amazing bunny!
~Sarah, Kirby’s proud foster mom!
